The East Coast Is Going To Get Hit With A “Bomb-Cyclone” Of ‘Climate Change’

The Washington Post plays the story of a big winter storm (something Warmists were saying were a thing of the past) straight

Monster storm to blast East Coast before polar vortex uncorks tremendous cold late this week

Unforgiving cold has punished the eastern third of the United States for the past 10 days. But the most severe winter weather yet will assault the area late this week.

First, a monster storm will hammer coastal locations from Georgia to Maine with ice and snow. By Thursday, the exploding storm will, in many ways, resemble a winter hurricane, battering easternmost New England with potentially damaging winds in addition to blinding snow.

Forecasters are expecting the storm to become a so-called “bomb cyclone” because its pressure is predicted to fall so fast, an indicator of explosive strengthening. The storm could rank as the most intense over the waters east of New England in decades at this time of year. While blizzard conditions could paste some coastal areas, the most extreme conditions will remain well out over the ocean.

In the storm’s wake, the mother lode of numbing cold will crash south — likely the last but most bitter in brutal blasts since Christmas Eve.

This is what’s called “weather”, just like with a hurricane, tornado, rain storm, or a nice day. It’s happened before and it’ll happen again. But, of course, along comes Excitable Rowan Walrath at Mother Jones, which replicates much of the Washington Post article prior to

In late 2016, Mother Jones reported that climate change may be contributing to such weather events.

The theory—advanced by Rutgers professor Jennifer Francis and other scientists—is that the rapidly warming Arctic is affecting the jet stream in ways that can contribute to bone-chilling weather in other parts of the Northern Hemisphere:

To understand how it works, it first helps to think of the jet stream as a river of air that flows from west to east in the Northern Hemisphere, bringing with it much of our weather. Its motion—sometimes in a relatively straight path, sometimes in a more loopy one—is driven by a difference in temperatures between the equator and the North Pole. Southern temperatures are of course warmer, and because warm air takes up more space than cold air, this leads to taller columns of air in the atmosphere. “If you were sitting on top of a layer of atmosphere and you were in DC, looking northward, it would be like looking down a hill, because it’s warmer where you are,” explains Francis. The jet stream then flows “downhill,” so to speak, in a northward direction. But it’s also bent by the rotation of the Earth, leading to its continual wavy, eastward motion. As the Arctic rapidly heats up, however, there’s less of a temperature difference between the equator and the poles, and the downhill slope in the atmosphere is accordingly less steep.

And there it is. The question they refuse to answer is “did this same thing happen prior to the Modern Warm Period?” Did this kind of thing not happen before during the Little Ice Age? Can they specifically prove, using the Scientific Method, that this is happening mostly due to Mankind’s output of what they unscientifically call “carbon pollution”? Of course not. The people who proclaim the world is only 6,000 years old and the dinosaur bones were planted can’t prove it, either. Of course, the latter group isn’t trying to tax and fee you, nor have the government control your life.

Seasoned experts over at the National Weather Service have tips for avoiding hypothermia. President Donald Trump simply suggests we “bundle up.”

It ended with a bit of Trump Derangement Syndrome. This is what your wife or mother will tell you. To Mother Jones, this is just Horrible.

Related, The Daily Beast’s Tanya Basu is not impressed by all the apocalyptic weather talk regarding this storm, in which a meteorologist calls it “a fairly classic winter storm.”

  1. […] real-world weather conditions are flying-in the face of Al Gore’s faithful congregation of […]

    “Climate change may be contributing…..”. Or, it may not be contributing. Very science like.

      j typed:

      and then criticized it for being unscientific.

      Actually that language is very “science like”. If you were a scientist you’d understand that science is always about probability or likelihood. You’ve probably heard before that scientific theories are rarely proven, but only disproven. New evidence can falsify a scientific theory, or modify it. Although the theory of biological evolution is still intact, new evidence fine-tunes the theory constantly.

      Scientists are a very conservative lot.

      “Based on the evidence it’s highly probable that the Earth is warming from increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.” Most scientists would agree with that statement.

      “Based on the evidence it’s 100% certain that the Earth is warming from increased greenhouse gases.” Most scientists would argue that that statement goes too far.

      But then you still cling to the notion that the Earth is not warming at all – that warming is manufactured by dishonest and greedy scientists.

      Or have you changed your position? Is the Earth warming?

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Based on the evidence, there is no proof whatsoever that CO2 causes warming in a convective atmosphere.


        • Jeffery says:

          Little one,

          Rather than repeat what you read somewhere why not formulate your argument concerning CO2 not being able to cause warming in a convective atmosphere?


          • drowningpuppies says:

            Waiting on you little guy.
            It’s been asked before but somehow you never seem to have the answer.
            Where’s your proof? Any proof?
            Just cite the study, little guy.

  3. Jeffery says:

    That’s what we thought, you haven’t a clue what your copying. We can safely keep ignoring your comments.

    Are you envious that Fargo and Rot have supplanted your position as the slimiest cesspoolian?

    Buh bye, dingleberry.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Do you even know what a convective atmosphere is?

      Can’t cite the study, can you, little guy?
      Here’s a hint: There isn’t one.

      I now understand why you’re so embarrassed and at a loss for words. Run away and hide, little guy.

      While you’re at it look up the definition of “propensity” and how to use it properly.

  4. captainfish says:

    if every storm is a the new monster storm, and they give it violent tendencies, do they not belittle the storms of the past and the death and destruction that those caused?

    This is just a mid level winter storm after all. A “monster” winter storm would knock out power to a major city (and wide swath of surrounding areas) and bring commerce and transportation to a standstill for a week or more.
