That’s right, in case you missed it, the Weather Channel has been naming winter storms, which everyone else has decided is idiotic and won’t participate. And, as typical for them, are engaging in more pseudo science cult behavior
Frigid temperatures like these are sometimes used to refute the idea that the planet as a whole is getting warmer with each passing year. That’s just not so, say NASA scientists, who point out that even on a warming planet, bitterly cold temperatures and harsh winter weather will still be possible and even commonplace.
That’s not what the climate astrologers used to tell us.
One of the reasons they can coexist is a phenomenon known as Arctic Oscillation, a phrase used to describe the interaction of the jet stream and Arctic air during the winter. It can cause unseasonably cold air masses to sweep over what are normally temperate latitudes, NASA reports, making for unusually cold and severe winter weather across many parts of the U.S.
Um, if the natural process of the Arctic Oscillation is making things cold, why can’t natural processes also cause warmth? Oh, right, right, Lefties need a way to advance their Progressive/fascist policies.
