This is all a plot to lull us into a false sense of security by the Global Warming Overlords, best known as the Illuminati. Like everything else, the Illuminati are behind the whole global warming conspiracy, and are buying up all the solar panel and windmill factories. In order to drive the price down, they stage these cold vortices, and then, when they own all the businesses, they'll hit us with the heat. People will then panic and they will sell their products at a huge profit.

Global warming causes extreme cold temperatures. Wait for summer. We will feel the heat of global warming then.

So you're saying it is going to be cold in winter and hot in summer :shock:

I think they may be on to something. Maybe this "Global Cooling" "Global Warming" "Climate Change" isn't such a farce after all.

I don't know what to make of those who deny that something is up. We can argue the causes, and while it's a very spurious to argue that this is not significantly man influenced, it's at least not as, to be blunt, stupid as to suggest that some significant climate change (not just a few outliers) is not at work.

My concern is not only the apparent stupidity involved in such a conclusion, but rather the fact that people seem so willing to keep a closed mind due to political stance when it actually threatens our nation's and world's well being.

I've been double fisting aerosol cans all week trying to get this place warmed up.

Wrong decade and wrong theory. That would actually open up larger holes in the ozone layer and release more green house gases into space then causing global cooling. Part of the global warming we saw in recent decades was probably from our fixing the ozone problems and trapping more greenhouse gases. Oddly, the simplest and cheapest way we could solve the global warming problem by returning to the use of aerosols.

Maybe we ought to rush out and do something like Europe did; they found that the biggest use of renewable energy was burning firewood. Great idea. The only trouble is, why are they backing away from the policies the "best and the brightest" came up with, and why does The Economist call it: "Europe's Insane Climate Policies", and "Worse than Useless". Maybe the government doesn't always know best.

BTW, the US has significantly reduced its carbon footprint, mainly because of private enterprise, in spite of government efforts to throw impediments in its way. That is due to the use of natural gas (product of fracking), replacing much more carbon intensive electricity generation by coal.

346 consecutive months with temperatures above the 20th Century global average.

It's such an amazing coincidence!

Not really. we are in a warming trend and we had unusually cold weather in the 60's and 70's

Don't you dare suggest that things like solar activity and weather cycles have any effect on climate! Man and man alone causes things to change! Anything else, you might as well pray to the sun god for warmer days.

My point is not about jumping to conclusions or pushing misguided policy without a better understanding of what is going on - that's just a reactionary approach that does as much harm as not admitting SOMEthing is up. And often that's pushed by blinding political ideology as well.

But if we can't be objective and reasonable enough to realize something's about and have a non-politically tainted discussion about it, we're potentially screwed and the ideologues from both the left and the right would be to blame.

2 things.

2. Isn't this thread predicated on the idea that because it's cold today over much of the mainland U.S, then somehow the idea of global warming is discredited? And yet you are now saying we are in a warming trend.

By the way, a number of all-time high temps have been recorded in Alaska today, including 52 degrees at Denali National Park. Records not only for this date, but for the entire month of January.

You're partially right. This was the entity falsely accused of fabricating data. However, a review by the Inspector General of the Department of Commerce found that those claims were entirely false and without merit.

I don't consider the NOAA a pro-global warming entity because it accurately reports climate data, just like I don't consider it a pro-snow entity when it accurately reports snowfall amounts.

OK....they cite a different reason, but a similar result.

The key to this newly-discovered feedback is aerosol -- tiny reflective particles suspended within the air that are known by experts to have a huge impact on climate.

Greenhouses gases absorb infrared radiation from the Earth and release it back into the atmosphere as heat, causing the planet to warm up over time. Aerosol works against this by reflecting heat from the sun back into space, cooling the planet as it does so.

Beneath the Antarctic ozone hole, high-speed winds whip up large amounts of sea spray, which contains millions of tiny salt particles. This spray then forms droplets and eventually clouds, and the increased spray over the last two decades has made these clouds brighter and more reflective.

As the ozone layer recovers it is believed that this feedback mechanism could decline in effectiveness, or even be reversed, leading to accelerated warming in the southern hemisphere.

Ozone Hole Is Now Seen as a Cause for Antarctic Cooling
By KENNETH CHANG
Published: May 3, 200

Most scientists blame people, at least in part, for global warming. Now, some researchers say people may be partly to blame for the cooling of Antarctica as well.

While average global temperatures have risen about one degree Fahrenheit over the past century, Antarctica over all appears to have cooled slightly in the past few decades.

That has been puzzling, because the polar regions are thought to be more sensitive to warming trends than the rest of the globe. Even more puzzling, a small portion of Antarctica -- the peninsula that stretches north toward South America -- defies the cooling trend. It has been warming very rapidly, about five degrees over the past 50 years, 10 times the global average.

Writing in today's issue of the journal Science, Dr. David W. J. Thompson, a professor of atmospheric science at Colorado State University, and Dr. Susan Solomon, a senior scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colo., argue that the ozone hole, which has opened up each spring over Antarctica in recent years, may help explain both contradictory trend.

''Ozone seems to be capable of tickling the Southern Hemisphere patterns,'' Dr. Thompson said in an interview.

A vortex of winds continually blows around Antarctica, tending to trap cold air at the South Pole. In the new paper, Dr. Thompson and Dr. Solomon show that the winds have strengthened in the past few decades, keeping the cold air even more confined.

The peninsula, which lies outside the wind vortex, escapes the cooling effect, the scientists said.

They say the ozone hole may be the cause of the stronger winds.

''That's where we speculate,'' Dr. Thompson said, ''and the emphasis is on the word 'may.' ''

Close to the ground, ozone, a molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms, forms a large and unhealthy component of smog. High in the atmosphere, however, naturally occurring ozone is essential for life, blocking ultraviolet rays that would fatally mangle DNA.

Artificial chemicals known as chlorofluorocarbons, or CFC's, once ubiquitous in aerosol spray cans and air-conditioner coolant, cause a chain of reactions that destroy ozone. In September 2000, the ozone hole opened up to a record 17.1 million square miles. With the most damaging CFC's now phased out, the ozone hole is expected to heal over the coming decades.

Until it does, however, fewer ozone molecules mean the atmosphere absorbs less ultraviolet radiation. Instead of warming the air, the rays bounce off the snow and ice of Antarctica and reflect back into space.

Scientists already knew that the ozone hole had cooled the upper atmosphere. Dr. Thompson and Dr. Solomon show that the troposphere, the lowest six miles of the atmosphere, has also cooled.

''It's a lot of food for thought in there,'' said Dr. John E. Walsh, a professor of atmospheric science at the University of Illinois and an author of a paper in Science in January that indicated Antarctica was cooling.

Dr. Walsh said the data tying the cooling to stronger winds was convincing. ''My one reservation,'' he said, ''is the link to the ozone.''

He noted that the ozone hole was usually largest in November or December, but that the greatest cooling had been about six months later.

Dr. Thompson agreed that the ozone hole could not explain the whole climactic picture, and said other influences like ocean currents probably played important roles, too.

''I seriously doubt it's the only player,'' he said. ''I think it's one of many.''

On the off chance you know anyone who's saying silly things like "it's so cold global warming can't be true" -- and these people aren't trolls, sociopathically concerned only with what's happening to them, or just plain committed to being wrong -- you can show them this video. It's extremely simple and easy to understand.

  • "Still don't believe in climate change? Then you're either deep in denial or delirious from the heat. . . . Yes, it's always hot here in the summer--but not this hot. Yes, we always have thunderstorms--but never like these."--Eugene Robinson, Washington Post, July 2, 2012
  • "Another insane cold wave--not the infamous 'polar vortex ' but its evil twin--is bringing sub-zero and single-digit temperatures to much of the nation. And global warming may be even more extreme, and potentially more catastrophic, than climate scientists had feared. This is, of course, no contradiction. The rallying cry of the denialists--'It's really cold outside, so global warming must be a crock!'--can be taken seriously only by those with a toddler's limited conception of time and space. They forget that it's winter, and apparently they don't quite grasp that even when it's cold in one part of the world, it can be hot in another."--Eugene Robinson, Washington Post, Jan. 28, 2014
