Climanitwits, and one of the best amongst the major media is Chris Mooney
(Washington Post) It may be the timeliest — and most troubling — idea in climate science.
Back in 2012, two researchers with a particular interest in the Arctic, Rutgers’ Jennifer Francis and the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Stephen Vavrus, published a paper called “Evidence linking Arctic amplification to extreme weather in mid-latitudes.” In it, they suggested that the fact that the Arctic is warming so rapidly is leading to an unexpected but profound effect on the weather where the vast majority of us live — a change that, if their theory is correct, may have something to do with the extreme winter weather the U.S. has seen lately.

According to Francis, the extreme U.S. winter of last year and now, the extremes at the beginning of this season, fit her theory. “This winter looks a whole lot like last winter, it’s a very amplified jet stream pattern,” she says. “We know that when we get these patterns, it tends to be very persistent. And it is definitely the type of pattern that we expect to see more often as the Artic continues to warm so fast.”
So, let’s see, be Warmist Theory, the last glacial period must have been super duper hot.
These wankers have created a tautology where by nothing can ever disprove their beliefs. Yes, what they are positing is poppycock, a big stinky load of mule fritters, but Warmists are too fanatical to understand nor ever give up. They are as far removed from science as those practicing witchcraft.
