CBS News: Hey, This Snow Thing Is Global Warming, Ya Know!

No one should be surprised that CBS News and the people they invite to participate are fully invested in anti-science

(Newsbusters) As a snow storm beared down on the east coast on Thursday, CBS This Morning sought to lay blame on global warming, with the headline on screen fretting: “Extreme Weather; Are These Kinds of Storms, Droughts Unprecedented?” Co-host Charlie Rose turned New York City College physics professor Michio Kaku and wondered: “What’s causing all this?”

Kaku proclaimed: “Well, the wacky weather could get even wackier. What we’re seeing is that the jet stream and the polar vortex are becoming unstable. Instability of historic proportions. We think it’s because of the gradual heating up of the North Pole. The North Pole is melting.” Rose interjected: “Global warming.”

Kaku continued: “That excess heat generated by all this warm water is destabilizing this gigantic bucket of cold air….So that’s the irony, that heating could cause gigantic storms of historic proportions.”

On CBS This Morning Thursday, co-host Gayle King theorized: “Does this explain why Niagra Falls is frozen and why it’s warm in Sochi? It’s all connected to the same thing, correct?” Kaku replied: “It’s connected. If you take a look at the jet stream, you see that England is flooding right now, Latin America is warm, while California has a drought. We’re talking about instabilities caused by the eratic nature of the jet stream.”

Except, the melting in the Arctic was much less this year. Many Warmists had predicted the Arctic would be ice free. Heck, many proclaimed that snowfall would be a thing of the past. Now these crazy anti-science people think massive, and in some cases, record, snowfall is caused by heating.

As far as Sochi goes

(Daily Caller) Marc Morano pointed out that Sochi’s position in Russia — thousands of miles south of Moscow and not far from the Turkish maritime border — lends the resort town an almost tropical feel that doesn’t produce much snow. Meanwhile, vast swathes of the Northern Hemisphere, including the storm-socked East Coast, remain buried under snow and ice.

“They’re waking up and seeing palm trees outside,” he said. “It’s the southernmost city in Russia. And had they held these Olympics in Michigan — upper Michigan was the coldest place on the entire planet in January — they should have held them in Michigan if they were looking for snow.”

“They should’ve held them in Iran,” Morano continued, “which and the most snow in 50 years, where 50 houses were crushed. They should’ve held them in Italy, where they’re having record snow. They should’ve held them anywhere in the United States, where we’ve broken over 4,000 snow records this past month.”

“The idea that they’d pick the most southern city with palm trees, and then use it as a springboard to call for a U.N. global warming treaty,” he said, “something’s just not adding up.”

He also points out that Sochi is considered the warmest city in Russia. Travel sites, like this one, consider it to be the warmest city in Russia. The Atlantic wondered last June whose bright idea it was to hold the Winter Olympics in the warmest part of Russia. The Washington Post notes “The Black Sea resort of Sochi, Russia, is the warmest city ever to host the Winter Olympic Games…”. Obviously, many of the games are held in the mountains, an hour away from Sochi. But, it made no sense to pick the city.
