Is global warming to
blame for polar vortex?

The Hill (Washington, D.C.), by Laura Barron-Lopez

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 1/6/2014 3:54:29 PM

Global warming may be contributing to the "polar vortex" causing frigid temperatures across most of the nation on Monday, according to some climate change researchers. While it seems counter-intuitive, the research argues that plunging temperatures could come from changes in the jet stream caused by climate change. Rutgers University climate scientist Jennifer A Francis has released a number of papers about changes in the jet stream brought about by warming Arctic temperatures. Her conclusions suggest that warming Arctic air caused by greenhouse gas emissions has caused changing to the jet stream that is pushing colder Arctic air further south, causing temperatures to plunge

Ah yes, liberal logic...
This is right up there with the notion that a government takeover of health insurance will reduce costs, putting more people on unemployment will stimulate the economy and that other whopper about our first black president being a "Constitutional Law Professor".
We are surrounded by morons.

Yup a warm spell means global warming and a cold snap means global warming, a hurricane in of all ungodly times, hurricane season means global warming. The excess hair growing on my back is my body evolving in reaction to global warming and the hair loss on my head is a casualty of global warming. That settles the science it right there.

MSNBC got snippy about Conservatives having a chuckle about the ship going to confirm there is less Antarctic sea ice getting stuck in the ever increasing amounts of ice.

Articles like this are WHY Conservatives point out the abject failures of climate alarmists, and take some pleasure in doing so. Whenever there is an extreme weather event, of any kind, they trot out a "researcher" whose work "suggests" such events are due to climate change.

No proof mind you. Not even a suggestion of how if might be proved. Just a bald assertion. All the MSM talking heads take such assertions as proven facts because they KNOW AGW is real!

Sometime later, REAL science completely debunks one liberal pipe dream after another but the MSM never reports on it. Just liked they censored the fact that the ship stuck in the ice was there to prove that the ice was disappearing. The hilarity of the ship being trapped in "illusionary ice" was not probed at all.

This unproved assertion deserved no press space but someone needs to make this stuff up to keep the AGW mill running.

It appeared Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, expected something entirely different from Facebook when he asked whether his Facebook followers were better off with Obamacare than they were four years ago, suggesting they “Comment with YES or NO!”. Comment they did. By late Wednesday afternoon, the status update had more than 55,000 replies. “I and a few million other people are a lot better off,” said one user. “I hope you are enjoying your Cadillac plan given to you by your wife’s employer, Goldman Sachs.” “YES, best law ever!

Here’s a situation where a black woman in the White House could make a difference. Earlier this week, the U.S. Army released its new appearance and grooming regulations, AR 670-1, and it was a real burn for African-American female soldiers. The updated rules ban twists, multiple braids bigger than a quarter of an inch in diameter, and dreadlocks of any size. Cornrows also can’t be bigger than a quarter of an inch. As of Wednesday afternoon, nearly 8,000 people had signed a petition calling on President Barack Obama to order the Army to reconsider the regulations because they are “racially biased.” The petition

In his NCAA bracket the Commander in Chief picked the Spartans to win the tournament by besting Louisville in the final game. "My bracket is a mess," Obama said.

It is those principles—the principles of a free society—that have shaped my life, my family, our company and America itself. Unfortunately, the fundamental concepts of dignity, respect, equality before the law and personal freedom are under attack by the nation´s own government. That´s why, if we want to restore a free society and create greater well-being and opportunity for all Americans, we have no choice but to fight for those principles.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake
