Record Cold Winter Could Be Thanks To Global Warming

November 9, 2019


If you live in the Midwestern United States, you might have noticed last week was really cold. Like, colder than some parts of Mars cold. Chicago, for example, dropped to a low of around minus 30 degrees Celsius and with the wind chill, it felt as low as minus 50. Schools were closed, postal services were suspended, flights were cancelled. It got so bad that dozens of people died and many more lost toes and fingers to frostbite. Now, with all that cold, some people [not naming names here] have argued that this winter is evidence against global climate change. Well, we’re here to tell you that is, obviously just a bunch of hot air… or cold air or whatever I don’t care anymore… The point is…there’s actually growing evidence that a warming Arctic means colder winters. Now, first things first. Climate is not the same as weather. Weather is what’s happening in the atmosphere over a short period of time, while climate is long term patterns in weather. So just because it’s particularly hot or cold one week doesn’t necessarily mean that the climate is or isn’t changing over years or decades. But long term changes in the atmosphere can lead to more fluctuations in weather or extreme weather events like what we saw in the last couple weeks. To understand why, you have to understand what actually caused the sudden deep freeze. You’ve probably heard the term polar vortex being thrown around. That’s a large area of low pressure and cold air that hangs out near one of the Earth’s poles. There are actually two polar vortexes—one at each pole. But the one in the North is the one that everyone is talking about because it’s the one that Chicago can sometimes get enveloped by. It’s usually kept in place by the polar jet stream— a fast moving river of air flowing in a counterclockwise direction high above the earth’s surface. When the jet stream slows down— like it often does in winter— it becomes weaker and wobblier, and that can let the polar vortex poke down into parts of the northern hemisphere. As frosty air moves southward, warm air from the equator moves northward. And that means some areas freeze their tuchuses off, while others are sweltering. Sled dog races, for example, had to be cancelled in Alaska because it was too warm. And the Southeastern US has been dealing with a heatwave. This push and pull of air leading to extreme winter weather isn’t a new thing. In fact, the term polar vortex is thought to have first be coined in 1853. What is unusual is that these vortex-driven bouts of extreme weather are happening more often and lasting longer. And rather than being proof positive that global warming isn’t a thing, that’s actually entirely consistent with our understanding of a changing climate. Climate models predict that if the Arctic gets warmer, there will be less of a temperature difference between the air there and the air in mid-latitude regions those between the equator and the poles. That temperature contrast is part of what fuels the winds, so less of a difference would mean slower winds high up in the atmosphere. And slower winds make the polar vortex less stable and the jetstream wavy-er, so this kind of extreme winter weather would be more likely. It also means such weather events would hang around longer, since the cold air isn’t shoved back up North again as quickly. And all that is exactly what we’ve seen happen. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports that the Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on the planet because of arctic amplification. Basically, when sea ice melts, it leaves larger patches of dark water that absorb sunlight better than the ice sheets, causing further warming. And a 2015 paper published in Science showed that the speed of winds in the polar vortex have decreased by 4 to 6 percent in the past 35 years and the kinetic energy of those winds has gone down by 8 to 15 percent. This year, daily temperatures in the Arctic have been up to 20 degrees higher than average. And that undoubtedly made the vortex even more likely to move southward. Also, we can see evidence for climate change all over the globe right now. While there were two record lows in January— both in Illinois—there were 35 record highs, mostly in Australia. Australia’s average temperature exceeded 30 degrees last month. And such record-setting isn’t just happening this year. If you look back over the past decade, there have been a lot of records set, and a lot more record-setting hot days than cold ones, which is a pretty strong hint that our planet is warming overall. And I’d just like to point out that the US, though we think of it as very big and important is only around two percent of the earth’s surface. So no, a lot of ice and snow in one part of this one country does not refute climate change. In fact, this is kinda exactly what models predicted would happen. And those models suggest there’s a lot more in store. A 2016 paper in the journal Nature Climate Change found that the vortex has been getting weaker and shifting eastward towards Eurasia since the 1980s. That means in the future, it’ll will likely dip down over the East Coast more often— and Europe, as well, is more likely to be hit by arctic-like blasts. But how often these extreme weather events happen, or how long they will last in the future, is of course still uncertain. Weather is really hard to predict, and we need more data on just how climate change impacts the vortex and other features of our atmosphere. Still, it’s probably pretty safe to say we haven’t seen the last really bleak winter— or the last really scorching summer. Thanks for watching this episode of SciShow

    The funny is that exactly when weather gets hot, then it is global warmong, but when weather is cold it is climate change.
    So it is the media that confuse local effects, with the overall effect in climate.
    So the local effects prove the one cocept but not the other.
    Models have not predicted what we see. Parameters are adjusted to match the results.
    The whole concept is hilarious, while they speak about science, the same time when NASA reports propably snd likely.
    Concept of possible effect of human activity, is obvious and accepted by all.
    Modeling of the effect, and understanding of possible balancing and/or feedback mechanisms is too early to conclude. Models are under continous evaluation, and models subject to further tuning.

    I got this channeling that global warming is supposed to happen, the planet is supposed to get hotter. they are spraying the sky to avoid the strength of the sun aka RA to come through.

    And people are programmed to be worried about global warming. The poles I feel are very important hidden information about earth. That's why we don't have access to them.

    I got that when they start to melt away that's when we "melt" into truth. It's a whole other world in the poles that is frozen away.

    All myths start from somewhere since we can't really make up anything it's all existing some where where in the universe. the whole Santa and the elves is a bigger picture. I feel there are beings inside the earth that are waiting to come up, they have been frozen by time (Saturn moon matrix)

    As colder than usual temperatures in the Midwest assuage some fears about global warming, let us remind ourselves that events like the shifting of the jet streams will gradually increase in frequency and depth as the Arctic temperatures continue to rise dramatically faster than in the temperate zones. Called temperature differential, it is a part of climate instability.

    but when people with no actual clue say it, the masses just swoon.
    get a grip, the planet goes through cycles we went through a hot one and are going through a cold one,

    get ready for the brutal cold and food shortages because of the LIES and FRAUD around climate change.

    What did you say caused the "little ice age"? Oh yea, you did not really say did you. That is because it was caused by a solar minimum (the Maunder Minimum) very much like the one we are entering right now. You do not need to spout bs to the world, you need to actually study science; start with Dr. Valentina Zharkova she will open your tiny little mind, if anyone can. A grand solar minimum (let's call it the Eddy Minimum) is upon us right now and in the next decade or so even you will understand it, many are catching on right now and most will know for sure by next year, diehard global warming conspiracy theorists like yourself will no doubt take longer to accept it.

    There is now irrefutable proof that wireless technology specifically cell phone technology is directly impacting global insect populations.

    All insects and most birds rely on the earth's magnetic field for navigation.

    The 75% collapse in global insect biomass over the past two decades is the single biggest existential threat to mankind since the nuclear age.

    Apart from wireless devices (cell phone towers and cell phones and other wireless Internet broadcast devices) interfering with insect navigation there is now significant proof that insect population decline is related to the build up of electromagnetic radiation in most airborne species.

    The increase in the frequency spectrum usage and exponential growth of the wireless industry and device usage correlates directly to sudden and dramatic worldwide population decline.

    The impact of insecticides has been factored into these studies and insecticides have been found to have had a relatively linear effect on population decline. Insecticides are therefore not the root cause of population collapse.

    Insects play a critical role in the life process of the planet.

    Time to rethink the ever increasing use of wireless technology.

    Ref – just one of hundreds of research reports ignored by the wireless industry:

    "Effect of electromagnetic radiations on brooding, honey production and foraging behavior of European honeybees (Apis mellifera L.)
    Pramod Mall* and Yogesh Kumar
    Department of Entomology, College of Agriculture, G. B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar."

    There have been many similar research studies that cover various other insect species – but most get moved offline as fast as they are put up. Many researchers are scared to publish papers online that challenge the worldwide wireless communications industry – it's only worth $trillions! There's a lot of risk involved.

    Their climate models have been laughably wrong. Their solution has been to tweak the data to fit the wonky climate models. There is a name for that.

    Back in the 1970's they blamed the polar vortex on global cooling after 30 years of steady cooling. Removing the cooling from the graphs and inflating the temperatures in recent times to try to create a correlation with increasing carbon dioxide is about what can be expected from degenerate leftist scientists.

    It's due to historically low solar activity (NASA) weakening the jet stream.

    Do some actual research:

    I live in Minnesota. We deal with these Polar Vortexes. So… long term, it sounds like they're shifting more eastward probably? So, Minnesota would join the community of states favoring warmer winters? Follow up, for those dealing with the polar vortex, as the earth warms up further… is this just going to get worse and worse? I bet if it did, wouldn't this whole polar vortex thing stretch into other seasons and then whole weather patterns shift again to….

    What he’s trying to say we are going through a Grand Solar Minimum.

  • Reply John M. Chew September 19, 2019 at 5:03 pm

    Ok. If people aren't supposed to reference extremely cold Winters in objecting to climate change, then why do those who support climate change always reference extremely hot summers? There are many regions around the world that have always had extremely hot dry seasons, such as American south west.

    so the planet is getting hotter ane colder really?
    you know what i don't even belive in global warming anymore

    just think about it for a sec, all of the weather stations are in car parks and on roofs and both of them are black and black gets very hot
    so i don't belive in it because of that

    The troposphere extends up to the stratophere 6 to 30 miles above the earth's sufure protecting us from the sun's UV ray's like Melanin or Eumelanin in the "African"skin. The testing of Nuclear bombs and pollution is a major contributor. Man is treating the earth like they treated "African American" and destroying it. You can't put sunscreen on the earth's Atmosphere, and if you destroy the earth; you are destroying one's self. Message!!!

    Or it could be another sign that government scientists faked the temperature records.

    you’re mixing climate change with global warming or MAN-MADE climate change. Climate change is a very real and natural occurrence that’s been going on since the creation of Earth. MAN-MADE climate change or global warming/cooling is a myth created to keep you in fear. Use the right terminology.
