‘Climate Change’ To Bring Polar Vortex Doom For Christmas

This is all your fault for daring to take a fossil fueled to trip to see your relatives, rather than walking or riding a bike hundreds or thousands of miles. Oh, and it’s brought to you by the same people who always say “weather is not climate”, right before they say every weather event is caused by/linked to carbon pollution

US ‘polar vortex’ to bring weather ‘extremes off the scale’ in time for Christmas

WEATHER weirding is getting real.

And the United States is about to experience an extreme Christmas, according to forward forecasts.

Something very odd is happening to the jetstreams of air that circle the globe.

And it’s about to generate another of the ‘polar vortex’ effects that has slammed the United States with heavy snow falls much further south than usual in recent years. (snip)

“On the ‘drunk jet stream’ or ‘jet weirding’ scale of climate disruption, the upcoming next 7-10 days will see extremes off the scale,” Maue says.

And the same people who complain about carbon pollution from fossil fuels will themselves be using lots of fossil fuels over the holiday season.

    The theory is that global warming is causing a shift in the jetstreams, resulting in a shift in weather patterns. Specifically it is hypothesized that in the warming arctic, the released ocean heat at the time sea ice is reforming allows southward bulges in the so-called “polar vortex” with arctic air pouring into the US. In the pre-global warming days this phenomenon would have been less frequent. This hypothesis is an active area of research and is certainly disputed within the climate science community.

    It is premature for lay articles to describe this potential phenomenon as fact.

    40 yrs ago they were “sure” the polar vortex was caused by global https://realclimatescience.com/2017/12/cold-now-caused-by-heat/

      No, there was no consensus for global cooling during the 1970s. That’s a conservative myth.

      Peterson, Connelley and Fleck (2008) Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.

      From the review:

      Climate science as we know it today did not exist in the 1960s and 1970s. The integrated enterprise embodied in the Nobel Prize winning work of the IPCC existed then as separate threads of research pursued by independent groups of scientists. Atmospheric chemists and modelers grappled with the measurement and understanding of carbon dioxide and other atmospheric gases while geologists and paleoclimate researchers tried to understand when Earth slipped into and out of ice ages, and why.
      An enduring popular myth suggests that in the 1970s the climate science community was
      predicting “global cooling” and an “imminent” ice age, an observation frequently used by those who would undermine what climate scientists say today about the prospect of global warming.
      A review of the literature suggests that, to the contrary, greenhouse warming even then
      dominated scientists’ thinking about the most important forces shaping Earth’s climate on human time scales. More importantly than showing the falsehood of the myth, this review shows the important way scientists of the time built the foundation on which the cohesive enterprise of modern climate science now rests.

      from the legend of Figure 1. During the period 1965 through 1979, our literature survey found 7 cooling papers, 19 neutral and 42 warming. In no year were there more global cooling papers than global warming.

      Even in a period of cooling 6 times more papers were predicting global warming than were predicting cooling, Time and Newsweek breathless articles not withstanding.
