Right? Egghead libs and their fancy edumacations! HAR HAR!


#23

why is the polar vortex leaving the arctic?


#24

Oh, look a cartoon quote from TV…


#25

Because of the weather…


#26

I hope they didn’t ban wood stoves and fire places up there… What else is there, if the power goes out?


#27

What has changed in the arctic?


#28

longest iv gone without power is a week.


#29

The north pole is moving?


#30

Did you know the polar vortex is happening because of very warm air in the Arctic drove a cold air mass down to the Americas?


#31

It’s thickening?


#32

Define “very warm”…


#33

Its shrinking which exposes more water and land to the sun making the arctic warmer


#34

My post was to point out once again that “local weather” does not equal “climate”.


#35

Do you know what a zero sum game is?

When someone says “the arctic is warmer than the midwest!”; what does that mean to you?


#36

are you saying the arctic is not cold?


#37

TV is cool :venezuela:


#38

You can see a section of warm air in the arctic pushing the cold air down.
see that spiral in the center? that is were the polar vortex should be.


#39

Its not cold enough which is why the polar vortex which exist year round is being pushed South.

Looks pretty cold up there to me…
