Polar Vortex That Was Caused by Global Cooling Now Caused by Global Warming


Even Hell has frozen over:

The Michigan town isn’t alone. Ninety percent of the USA is frozen.

In a pathetic attempt to prop up the global warming hoax, some liberals have actually been barking that the extreme cold is caused by it being too warm.

Supposedly hot air caused by insufficient taxation and regulation is pushing the dreaded polar vortex down upon us from the Arctic. Back in the 1970s, they blamed this same polar vortex on the phony crisis du jour, global cooling.

Here is liberal establishment flagship publication Time Magazine blaming the ominous-sounding polar vortex on global cooling

Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds –the so-called circumpolar vortex–that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.

…and here is the same publication driven by the same authoritarian motivations blaming it on global warming:

But not only does the cold spell not disprove climate change, it may well be that global warming could be making the occasional bout of extreme cold weather in the U.S. even more likely. Right now much of the U.S. is in the grip of a polar vortex, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a whirlwind of extremely cold, extremely dense air that forms near the poles. Usually the fast winds in the vortex–which can top 100 mph (161 k/h)–keep that cold air locked up in the Arctic. But when the winds weaken, the vortex can begin to wobble like a drunk on his fourth martini, and the Arctic air can escape and spill southward, bringing Arctic weather with it.

What reminds me of a drunk on his fourth martini is the establishment media with its increasingly preposterous lies.
