NY Times: It’s So Cold Because You Drove A Fossil Fueled Vehicle

That, and your use of a hair dryer, ice maker in the fridge, the fridge itself, air conditioning and heating, washing and drying your clothes with machines, wearing clothes that you didn’t make yourself or buy from local manufacture, eating meat, not growing your own veggies, owning a gun, and so much more. But, there is an interesting admission

From the article

As bitter cold continues to grip much of North America and helps spawn the fierce storm along the East Coast, the question arises: What’s the influence of climate change?

Only in Cult of Climastrology World. Most people just say “winter.”

Some scientists studying the connection between climate change and cold spells, which occur when cold Arctic air dips south, say that they may be related. But the importance of the relationship is not fully clear yet.

Soooooooo, not clear yet, and, in science, this means research that says “yes, there is most specifically a link.” This is more like political language. Basically, this is an admission that this entire line of thought is a bunch of mule fritters.

The reason a direct connection between cold weather and global warming is still up for debate, scientists say, is that there are many other factors involved. Ocean temperatures in the tropics, soil moisture, snow cover, even the long-term natural variability of large ocean systems all can influence the jet stream.

Huh. If CO2 is the control knob, why can other things, like natural variability, constantly over-ride it? Why couldn’t it be primarily natural? Oh, right, then the Warmists couldn’t recommend taxes and fees and lifestyle restrictions. Here it comes

Much of the Northern Hemisphere is cold this time of year (it’s winter, after all). Cold snaps have occurred throughout history — certainly long before industrialization resulted in large emissions of greenhouse gases. And as with any single weather event, it’s difficult to directly attribute the influence of climate change to a particular cold spell.

But scientists have been puzzled by data that at first seems counterintuitive: Despite an undeniable overall year-round warming trend, winters in North America and Europe have trended cooler over the past quarter-century.

Obviously, in Warmists World, this means mankind’s CO2 output. To sane people, and those who actually practice Science, this means that climate changes, things happen, and perhaps the warming isn’t as strong as the manipulated, massaged, smoothed, and manufactured data says.

    The facts are that the Earth is in a period of rapid warming (the global mean surface temperature is up 1C over the past century) AND that extreme cold snaps during winter are occurring more frequently in the northern hemisphere.

    Here’s the observation from the article:

    Despite an undeniable overall year-round warming trend, winters in North America and Europe have trended cooler over the past quarter-century.

    and then:

    Since scientists can’t rely on magic for explaining the natural world, they have to look for reasons. One current hypothesis is that the warming Arctic (a fact) is allowing frigid air to spill out of the Arctic during the northern winter.

    Now you mock and ridicule them for being scientific. Do YOU allow that the cold snaps COULD be related to global warming? If not, why not?

      The NY Times is not a scientific publisher and as the recent past has proven, is just a shill for liberal ideas.

      Do YOU allow that the cold snaps COULD NOT be related to global warming? If not, why not?

    • Fargo says:

      You first. Explain the scientific reasoning behind your cold snaps related to global warming?

    we don’t know why we’re measuring cold air in winter, and don’t see any proof of anything, but it’s proof that the world is warming. so there.
