Totally absurd – Attributing recent cold spells to man-made global warming 

After an undeniable increase in Arctic outbreaks over recent years, and in an affront to all logic and reasoned thinking, a catastrophically warming world now also means regular outbreaks of severe polar cold.


The climate scare industry has achieved such a level of absurdity that, on February 1, journalist Andrew Revkin reported in a National Geographic article that, “Many stories in recent days highlighted studies concluding that global warming is boosting the odds of cold outbreaks.”

Among the most absurd climate alarm statements attributing recent cold spells to man-made global warming came from University of Michigan professor emeritus of environment and sustainability Donald Scavia, who said: “In the past there was a very strong gradient of cold air at the poles and warmer air south of the poles. That gradient kept the cold where it is. As the poles are warming faster than the rest of the planet, that gradient weakens, allowing the cold air currents to dip south.”

Dr. Tim Ball, an environmental consultant and former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg in Manitoba, said that Scavia’s statement “is utter rubbish,” adding: “It’s wrong in every aspect, from the basic assumption to the interpretation. In fact, a gradient makes things move. It doesn’t ‘keep the cold where it is.”

Over the past 7 Days, the United States broke 3,782 Low Temperature Records vs just the 518 Max

  1. This whole circus is about the grant money . Universities need the grant money as a necessary form of income to maintain their excessive science departments . Especially the climate-trolls who can only think in computer models , which are most of the times nonsensical , short of correct input and a far to linear approach of reality missing negative exponential influences , like carbon dioxide on the earth atmosphere , whilst basic thermodynamics are disregarded . When a questionnaire would be sent to all these so-claimed climate-scientists , less than 1 in a hundred will be able to mention a degree in thermodynamics for the simple reason that a successful thermodynamics-engineer can earn a very good life in the oil industry instead of being stashed away in a university -department ,like most of these climate-scientists .

    The governmental bureaucracy and the university-bureaucracy are supporting each other in such a way keeping the grant-train rolling and always finding new fields in science that need further investigation even when it is utter nonsense like unusual cold is proof of heating of the atmosphere , which requires of course further investigation , which the politicians honor with pleasure to keep the carbon dioxide scam going for an unlimited time with unlimited grants payable by the tax-payer . This way climate-science is a perpetuum mobile with the help of the taxpayer . The only solution is a total abandoning of climate-science at all universities and to install a rule that you may only call yourself a climate scientist after a successful finished study of thermodynamics whereafter the required grants by academia can be minisculed .

  2. DR JAY LEHR and TOM HARRIS — What’s the matter, Bozo’s! Your CO2 can’t stop the cooling?
    The Sun, my friends. It’s the Sun that control this planet, not humans!

    Yes, Other fools also claim that “Climate Change” killed off early humans!
    Yeah! It’s “Climate Change” alright! — Only much colder — Like an Ice age!

  3. Ha ha ha next time I need to boil my kettle I might just put it in the deep freeze.
    They are proving to us less educated how silly they are, does not make much sense does it.

  4. That would like ‘a sudden increase in pregnancies has been attributed to a male vasectomy campaign the past decade’.

  5. Global warming/climate change will also cause the next ice age!
    That’ll be the next ignorant prediction from these oafs….lol.

  6. theyre truly desperate and getting to the headlesschickenstage reading the claims made;-)

    musing on this garbage
    is anyone else noticing?
    everytime theres a COLD event ie the huge one over usa rightnow
    some halfwitted papergets a rave up by msm like this “toiletpaper” research
    while the real data gets ignored

    and as for real data?
    my areas avg temp hot or cold averages..
    vary DAY by DAY! not over the full month( by BoM)
    ive noticed we have a warmer night so our avg cold temp suddenly went from 1.8 below avg to .5above today
    VERY misleading, while not utterly false it certainly is open to a wide misapprehension of the said figures depending on what day you looked at the figures given

  7. Meanwhile David DuByne at Adapt 2030 has put together an interesting report about why the Arctic Ocean has not refrozen in October the first time in “recorded history”.

    David has noticed a very anomalous feature — some incredibly fast moving ocean current is blocking the normal water polar circulation, and appears to be coming from the Gakkel Ridge. The Gakkel Ridge is an ancient underwater feature where there is a split in the the Earth’s crust. Now perhaps, water from the Earth’s crust is pouring out from this feature like a highly pressurized aquifer, disrupting the normal run of the Murman and Spitzbergen Currents in the Laptev and Kara Seas.
    see for more.

    It is very likely that if this feature persists it will affect the Northern Hemisphere’s winter weather in some strange and anomalous fashion — time will tell exactly what!
