Ocasio-Cortez Bungled Green New Deal’s Release. Her Staff Took Its Webpage Offline

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kicked off Thursday unveiling her highly-anticipated “Green New Deal” resolution to cheers from Democrats and environmentalists, but by the day’s end, her staff was forced to take a gaffe-riddled summary of the bill offline.

Ocasio-Cortez gave NPR the scoop. Her office provided NPR the Green New Deal resolution and its accompanying FAQ document that laid out its goals, namely to “[m]ove America to 100% clean and renewable energy” within 10 years.

What immediately became clear, however, was that the legislative language didn’t match with Ocasio-Cortez’s FAQ, especially when it came to nuclear power, welfare programs and “farting cows.”

“Frankly, it does a disservice to the debate,” Jeremy Harrell, policy director at ClearPath, a conservative group that promotes low-emissions energy, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Snowstorm snarls evening commute; Gov. Inslee declares State of Emergency

For the second time in a week, snow was falling across the Puget Sound region, only this time it's a bit stronger of a storm, and it's hitting the Friday evening commute hard.

Snow began falling in the Seattle-Tacoma-Everett corridor just after 12:30 p.m. with snowfall rates set to increase during the afternoon to 1-2 inches per hour, making travel treacherous throughout the entire Puget Sound region and in some cases, doubling or tripling typical travel times for commuters.

Gov. Jay Inslee declared a State of Emergency across the state to deal with the impacts from the winter storm. "Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years," Inslee wrote in the proclamation. "I encourage everyone to stay off the roads if possible and plan ahead if you must travel."

Hordes flock to Portland stores as snow moves in

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A snowstorm is closing in on the Portland area and people are stocking up on last-minute supplies.

Local grocery stores were packed all day Friday and checkout lines were dozens of people deep. Employees rushed to keep shelves stocked but many stores had a difficult time trying to keep up.

Everything from bread to milk and apples to bananas practically flew off the shelves at the Safeway in Portland's Pearl District. Produce aisles were picked clean at the Walmart in Tigard; bacon went extinct at the Fred Meyer in Wilsonville.

Snow has arrived for many in metro area: Will keep falling Saturday, forecasters say

Close to a foot here in The Gorge.

Residents in many parts of the Portland area are waking up Saturday to an inches-thick blanket of snow. Yet others -- including those in Beaverton -- have yet to see anything stick.

The snow appears to be moving from the north and east -- where places such as Camas received several inches in the pre-dawn hours -- to the south and west. Some suburbs -- including Hillsboro, Tualatin and Wilsonville -- had received very little snow and still had bare, wet exposed streets.

Delingpole: Green New Deal Is a Revamped Communist Manifesto

A few years ago at the height of the global warming scare I wrote a book which set out to answer one of the key questions of our time: if climate change isn’t really a problem why do so many people act as though it is?
The answer, I discovered, is that environmentalism is just a fashionable mask for the usual leftist obsessions with state control and wealth redistribution.

That’s why I called the book Watermelons: green on the outside, red on the inside.

Not everyone who believes in man-made climate change is a full on Commie. Some are merely useful idiots. But whatever reason people may have for supporting the scam – greed, stupidity, virtue-signalling, idiot leftist teachers – the net result is the same: bigger government, higher taxes, more regulation, lower standards of living. Exactly like you’d get under communism, in fact.

So color me completely unshocked by the Green New Deal. It looks like a revamped Communist Manifesto because that’s exactly what it is.

Record Cold Grips Weyburn

When the mercury dropped to -38.2° Thursday morning, it became the coldest February 7th in Weyburn’s history, beating the previous record of -37.5°, set back in 1994.

The cold forcing Environment and Climate Change Canada to issue an extreme cold warning early Thursday morning, as wind chill exaggerated the temperature to -52.

The ambient temperature at 10:00 a.m. was colder than Alert, Nunavut, the northernmost settlement in the world, and colder than Yakutsk, Russia, known as the coldest city in the world. It was even colder in Weyburn than it was at the south pole.

The entire province is shivering in this cold spell. Prince Albert was reported as the coldest part of the province with a temperature of -42.5°, while Rockglen is the warmest part of Saskatchewan at -28.5°.

Winter storm puts West in deep freeze

Snow, ice and shivering cold blasted normally mild cities from Seattle to Las Vegas to San Francisco on Tuesday as winter weather sweeping across the U.S. West shuttered schools, made travel treacherous and closed all roads in Yosemite National Park.

Winter storms have been hitting the West for several days and brought a surprise dusting to peaks overlooking San Francisco — the city’s first notable snow in eight years. Snow also piled higher at ski resorts, closing runs in Lake Tahoe and the California mountains as snow reached 7 to 10 feet since Saturday.

Residents Digging Out Of Snow After 4 Days Of Winter Advisory

Four days of winter advisory has blanketed the Sierra leaving folks stranded in some areas and without power in others. Snow fell as low as Placerville around 1,800 feet.

From there, the scenic overlook on Highway 50 in Pollock Pines is picturesque, as is the drive through the town, but what you’ll also see people digging out their cars just about everywhere you look.

“It’s pretty crazy up here. Last night it started snowing and it kind of tapered off and then it started again and we were like oh no oh no,” said Wade Burmley of Pollock Pines.

He says this latest dumping of snow is unbelievable and it was still snowing Tuesday night.

Green New Deal: ‘Upgrade or Replace Every Building in U.S.’ Within 10 Years

Progressive Democrats will call for every building in the United States to be upgraded or replaced as part of its soon-to-be-unveiled “Green New Deal,” an outline of the proposal reads.

In a press conference Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) will detail their ten-year plan to tackle “climate change,” which they claim would require the elimination “pollution and greenhouse gas emissions” to meet “100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.”

The plan calls for the “national mobilization” of the economy through 14 “infrastructure and industrial” projects. To meet the country’s power demands through “clean and renewable energy sources,” an FAQ says the country will need to “upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.”

Nancy Pelosi Slights Green New Deal: ‘Green Dream or Whatever’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday mocked the “New Green Deal” just hours before its outline was unveiled — the latest example of the Democrat Party’s widening split between establishment lawmakers and its progressive wing on how to tackle “climate change.”

Democrats including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are calling for a Green New Deal intended to transform the United States economy to combat climate change and create thousands of jobs in renewable energy.

The freshman lawmaker and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) are teaming up on the plan, which aims to eliminate all carbon emissions in U.S. energy production by 2030. A joint resolution drafted by Ocasio-Cortez and Markey sets a goal to meet “100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable and zero-emission energy sources,” including dramatic increases in wind and solar power.

Snowed-in Russian driver rescued by CAMEL in hilarious road VIDEO

A bizarre video showing a camel towing a car stuck on a snow-covered Russian road is making the rounds on social media.

When your 4x4 off-road vehicle fails you in the fierce Russian winter, and even a tractor can’t pull you out, you may still hope for a miracle to happen – at least if you’re in Saratov, where this viral video was shot.

Uploaded to social media, the footage shows a camel trying to pull the car out of snow on a dual-carriage road. The animal, controlled by its cameleer, succeeds at the third attempt as cheering voices are heard in the background. At the end of the video a tractor is seen on the roadside standing still – apparently after failing to dig out the car.

“We don’t get snow up here in the area,” said Jess Moseley, who traveled from the San Francisco Bay Area to snowy Mount Diablo State Park 40 miles (64 kilometers) away. “You have to go to Tahoe or wherever to play in the snow. So we just came up to see if it was still here, and it is.”

AOC And Broken Clocks. Right Twice A Day

“The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

That was not one of the two times she was right. What amazes me is the number of trendy people who suffered through 45 degree below zero temperatures (-42.8 C) and still are listening to Al Gore and the 20 plus Democrats running for President. We are entering the Eddy Grand Solar Minimum in 2019 so we ought to see lots of Global Freezing for at least the next 20 years and possibly the next 40 to 60 years. Voters will soon rebel at paying higher taxes to subsidize obvious idiots and grafters even some of AOC’s 2.46 million Twitter followers will see the light.

Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post and his fact checker awarded 4 Pinnochios for AOC’s claim that $21 trillion had gone missing from the Pentagon and HUD from 1998 to 2015. Bezos is a CIA business partner through his computing services so you might expect him to side with the Deep State.

2018 was the 4th hottest year on record, NASA says

Surface temperatures on the planet in 2018 were the fourth hottest since 1880. NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) crunched the numbers.

“2018 is yet again an extremely warm year on top of a long-term global warming trend,” said Gavin Schmidt, the director at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.

“The impacts of long-term global warming are already being felt — in coastal flooding, heat waves, intense precipitation and ecosystem change.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NASA = Never A Straight Answer.

Rare Snowfall Creates Winter Wonderland On Bay Area Peaks

Some wild and unusually cold weather on Monday night was turning many Bay Area peaks white as a rare snowfall hit the region.

The latest storm system accompanied by a blast of frosty Canadian air found snow falling Mount Diablo, Mount St. Helena and Mount Hamilton earlier in the day. By nightfall, measurable snow was dusting trees in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The chilly weather also lead to widespread hailstorms across the Bay Area, with reports of hail in San Francisco, the North Bay and several parts of the East Bay.

Home Winterizing Checklist

As cold weather approaches, it is important to take a few preventative measures to protect your home through the chilly months. Winterizing is generally a task that can be done relatively inexpensively, but will make a big difference in how comfortable your home is, and could end up saving you money on energy bills, too. In fact, many very effective home weatherproofing jobs are something that homeowners can complete without professional help.

Easy Home Weatherproofing

Some small weatherproofing jobs require little to no “handiness”, but can make a real difference once cold weather hits. By doing these things before the snow flies, you’ll be saving yourself some hassle (and possibly some money, too!):

GOV. BROWN CONJURES UP MASSIVE CARBON TAX PLAN

Governor Brown is at it again. In the works is another new, monstrous tax. A new $600 million dollar per year tax to grow even larger in subsequent years. (Quick calculation: that is $150 per year for each man woman and child in Oregon) It will be sold as a “Cap and Trade” carbon tax.

A straight tax on Carbon would apply across the board to all emissions and could come with an offsetting check back to the public who for paying higher prices because of the tax. No such luck here. The administration would pass out the carbon limits to individual companies and tax them for any excess over the limits. In effect decide who pays how much, which is expected to be $600 million the first year. It could be a repeat of the Energy Tax Credits disaster but on steroids and the taxpayer would pay through the nose, again.

Talking About the Weather

It is cold in the Midwest, so cold that Rachel Maddow already ascribed it to evil Putin (“Russia will freeze you and your family to death.”) It is extremely cold in England, too. I’d think this frost spell should put paid to the silly notion of Global Warming. But no, the adepts of Al Gore sect are not so easily dissuaded. Like the Flat Earth Society, they are impervious to arguments. These enlightened people keep struggling against global warming.

They decided to overturn Mark Twain’s adage Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it – and do something. There is a new popular hero, a pleasantly old-fashioned-looking 16-year old Swedish girl with braids, Greta Thunberg, who had sat down in a snowdrift and said she wouldn’t budge until somebody would do something against global warming. She has led a school kids demo for the same purpose, and the European MSM is rapturous.

50 Photos That Show Just How Insanely Cold It Is In America Right Now

Extreme weather events are becoming more and more common, with records shattered down under during Australia's recent heatwave, and now, at the opposite end of the spectrum, the 'polar vortex' bearing down on Midwestern U.S.

The polar vortex is a band of strong winds, high up in the atmosphere that keeps bitterly cold air locked around the Arctic region. Sometimes, like this year, it can drift further south than usual and envelop highly populated areas of North America. Chigaco has been particularly hard hit, with its notoriously windy location on Lake Michigan bringing wind-chill temperatures down to record-breaking lows.

With much of the Midwest on lockdown and people urged to stay indoors, some people have been braving the plunging temperatures to take incredible images of the effects that the vortex is having on their daily lives. From exploding toilets to icy hairstyles, this list compiled by Bored Panda will give you chills just from looking at it!

New Jersey Nuclear Reactor Shut Down By Polar Vortex

After the Arctic polar vortex brought temperatures in parts of Canada to record lows that, in some places, rivaled the temperatures on the surface of Mars (not to mention leaving nine people dead), the infamous Arctic air has notched another milestone: It has shut down a nuclear reactor due to an extremely rare phenomenon called 'frazil ice'.

Never heard of frazil ice? Neither had we.

According to Bloomberg, Public Service Enterprise Group, shut a reactor early Thursday at unit at its Salem nuclear plant in southern New Jersey after screens on its intake froze over, restricting the flow of water needed to cool off the reactor, according to spokesman Joe Delmar.

A second unit at a station on the Delaware river was temporarily closed for the same reason.

Thirteen dead after historic deep freeze blasts the Midwest and record-breaking -30F temperatures linger as the cold snap moves into the Northeast, causing travel chaos with 2,300 canceled flights

The deadly polar vortex that paralyzed the U.S. Midwest has killed at least 13 people and left tens of millions of Americans shivering for a second day as temperatures plunged to record-breaking lows and the cold snap moved over towards the East Coast.

The painfully cold weather system that put much of the Midwest into a historic deep freeze lingered on Thursday and continued to break historic records with parts of Illinois and Iowa recording temperatures of -38F and -30F respectively.

The frigid conditions canceled more than 2,300 flights and over 1,500 delays on Thursday, while the number of deaths blamed on the cold climbed to 13.

Travellers warned of more extreme cold weather amid heavy snow

The big freeze will continue over the weekend, with the Met Office warning of the coldest night of the winter as snow caused further transport disruption.

Scotland could see lows of minus 16C (3.2F) over Saturday night into Sunday as the cold snap continues, the Met Office said.

A low of minus 15.4C (4.3F) was recorded just before midnight on Thursday at Braemar in the Scottish Highlands.

It is set to be less chilly over Friday night and into Saturday morning – with temperatures around minus 7C (19.4F) or minus 8C (17.6F) – but likely to dip right back down again by Saturday evening.

Winter storm means big business for snow removal companies

Cars, homes and driveways were covered in several inches of snow on Friday.

For some, the work is just too much and they depend on professionals to clear it out of the way.

Most people complain about snow, but for workers with shovels that means big business for them.

Derek Johnson, owner of Glory to Glory Landscaping and More, knows this first hand.

“They call it white gold. Money falling from the sky. You can't, it don’t get no better than this winter snow if you have the equipment,” said Johnson.

Johnson and his crew took on a massive project at this Columbus apartment complex.

It will take hours more to get each driveway cleared.

If You Are Warm Right Now, Thank Capitalism

Last night the temperature fell 3 degrees an hour. As I write this, it is negative 10 degrees outside. A “once in a generation” polar vortex has swept into the American Midwest from the Arctic.

I am lucky to be alive. It would take me just a couple of hours to die from hypothermia if I were outside in such weather. But I am not just alive, I am comfortable. It is a balmy 73 degrees in my home. I am relaxing by my gas fireplace that gives off a warm heat as gentle flames dance about and please my eye. I can hear the gentle whir of fans blowing heat around my living room, generated by my furnace. I write this on my comfortable sofa with a computer on my lap powered by electricity and fed information via the Internet, itself powered by electricity and glass-fiber conduits that carry information to me from computers and minds from across the earth.

BEX ALERT - A third of Himalayan ice cap doomed, finds report

At least a third of the huge ice fields in Asia’s towering mountain chain are doomed to melt due to climate change, according to a landmark report, with serious consequences for almost 2 billion people.

Even if carbon emissions are dramatically and rapidly cut and succeed in limiting global warming to 1.5C, 36% of the glaciers along in the Hindu Kush and Himalaya range will have gone by 2100. If emissions are not cut, the loss soars to two-thirds, the report found.

The glaciers are a critical water store for the 250 million people who live in the Hindu Kush-Himalaya (HKH) region, and 1.65 billion people rely on the great rivers that flow from the peaks into India, Pakistan, China and other nations.

Winter Is Wreaking Havoc On Electric Vehicles

If there’s one thing electric vehicle owners are learning, it is that extremely cold temperatures are likely going to lead to frustration if they don’t take extra special care of their battery powered vehicles. Look at it as just another added benefit to "saving the world".

As we push through the cold that automakers are using as an excuse for poor sales this winter, customers of some companies – notably Tesla – are starting to realize that things are a little bit different with electric vehicles in the winter. Disgruntled owners of Model 3s have been widespread on social media and online forums, talking about numerous issues they’ve had with cold weather on their vehicles. People have complained about battery range draining and Model 3 door handles freezing up.

Terence Corcoran: CBC admits it wrongly reported hyped-up insurance 'climate risks'

The Insurance Bureau of Canada’s decades-long campaign to raise alarms about the ravages of floods continued last week with an appearance by Blair Feltmate, a favourite star climate-change witness for the biggest insurers, at the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority’s annual meeting. Feltmate heads the industry-funded Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at Waterloo University, which claims climate change has triggered a surge in flood events in recent years. As Feltmate put it during his comments at the meeting: “The elephant in the room, from a climate-change perspective, is… too much water in the wrong places.”

Not quite. The real elephant sharing the room with Feltmate turned out to be a detailed report from Guy Gendron, a CBC/Radio Canada International ombudsman, outlining how such distorted flood claims led the news network to publish stories last fall that contained “inaccurate and irrelevant” information.

The Polar Vortex Might Be Causing 'Frost Quakes' in Chicago

It might be cold enough in Chicago right now to make the ground shake.

Local news station WGN reported today (Jan. 30) that its viewers had heard "frost quakes" in the city overnight. And though the reports in Chicago are still unconfirmed, frost quakes are indeed a real thing.

Frost quakes, or "cryoseisms," occur when water trapped underground freezes suddenly as the temperature drops, causing it to expand. (Water expands as it freezes.) All that rapidly expanding water underground can split rocks and put stress on the soil, causing loud booms. Frost quakes are fairly rare events and difficult to positively identify. A huge blast that shook northwest Calgary, Canada, in 2014 was widely attributed to a loud cryoseism, but researchers never confirmed that as the cause. [9 Tips for Exercising in Winter Weather]

Hell freezes over: At least 12 people die as temperatures as low as -42F wreak havoc across the Midwest with more than 2,500 flights cancelled, postal services halted and hitting a Michigan town named Hell

The deadly arctic deep freeze wreaking havoc across the United States has left at least 12 people dead with record-breaking low temperatures halting postal services in the Midwest and cancelling more than 2,600 flights.

Two people died in Detroit, Michigan after temperatures started plummeting late Tuesday as forecasters issued grave warnings that one of the coldest spells in history would be life-threatening.

Police found a man's body across the street from his home in the Detroit area on Wednesday. He was not wearing a hat or gloves and wasn't dressed for below-zero temperatures. A 70-year-old man was also found dead in Detroit in front of a neighbor's home on Wednesday.

University of Iowa student, Gerald Belz, 18, was found outside an academic building around 3am Wednesday. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Nolte: Experts Claim Every Kind of Weather Proves Global Warming Is Fer’ Real

America enjoys a winter filled with tons of snow and frigid cold weather and out pops the Climate Hoaxsters to assure this kind of weather only further proves our planet is getting, uhm… warmer.

This current Climate Hoaxster freak out is largely in reaction to President Trump’s tweet earlier this week mocking the Climate Hoaxsters.

“In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded,” he tweeted. “What the hell is going on with Global Warming? Please come back fast, we need you!”

Beer deliveries in Minnesota are halted due to kegs FREEZING inside trucks during record low temperatures brought on by deadly winter storm

A deadly arctic deep freeze enveloping the Midwest is so severe beer distributors have been forced to halt deliveries.

'Most of the folks up north are not delivering,' Mike Madigan, president of Minnesota Beer Wholesalers Association, told CNN.

'Most distributors are not delivering in the Twin Cities, down south and out west.'

This comes after kegged beer froze while out for delivery on Tuesday, and temperatures fell as low as -26F, with a wind chill of 53 below zero, in Minneapolis.

Drive-Bys Blame Record Cold on Global Warming

Go to the audio sound bites, just to show you what we’re up against here. We have lifetime, record-breaking cold because of a polar vortex in the upper Midwest. There is no question we have record-breaking cold. I’m gonna tell you, we’ve had sunspot activity that’s been declining. We’ve been reporting on this for the last the eight years. Democrats, media, leftists do not allow any discussion of the sun whenever there is a discussion on climate change.

Record Cold Forces Rethink on Global Warming

Headlines around the world are reporting exceptionally frigid conditions and unusually high levels of snowfall in recent weeks. They tout these events as records, but few people understand how short the record actually is -- usually less than 50 years, a mere instant in Earth’s 4.6-billion year history. The reality is that, when viewed in a wider context, there is nothing unusual about current weather patterns.

Despite this fact, the media -- directly, indirectly, or by inference -- often attribute the current weather to global warming. Yes, they now call it climate change. But that is because activists realized, around 2004, that the warming predicted by the computer models on which the scare is based was not actually happening. Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels continued to increase, but the temperature stopped increasing. So, the evidence no longer fit the theory. English biologist Thomas Huxley commented on this dilemma over a century ago:

Brace Yourselves: DANGEROUSLY Cold Weather is Coming

If you live in the Midwest, you surely already know that dangerously cold weather is heading your way. Some parts of the region are experiencing heavy snowfall and powerful winds, and the worst is yet to come.

Here’s what has already happened.
Officials have already canceled nearly 1,600 flights so far, most at Chicago’s airports. Hundreds of schools have been closed. In Michigan, non-essential government offices, including the Capitol, are closed.

Winter Storm Jayden has already pummeled parts of the Plains and Midwest with snow and wind and is now heading for parts of the South and the East.

In Wisconsin and Minnesota, snowplow drivers are having trouble keeping up. Those states are expecting up to 14 inches of snow in some areas.

Near-Record Cold Expected Across the Northland Thursday Morning

When talking about extreme cold, it's natural to recall previous severe cold snaps, such as that of 2014 and 1996. As temperatures continue to drop toward record lows tonight, 2019 could become the next winter we use to define "extreme cold".

“This late January 2019 cold snap is gonna go in the record books,” National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Moore said, "some areas of Northern Minnesota are going to be as cold as they were back in the 1996 cold snap."

That 1996 cold snap is what was responsible for all-time record cold in the Northland. The air temperautre in Tower, MN, was recorded to be -60 on February 2, 1996, which is the coldest temperature ever recorded in the state of Minnesota. Just two days later on Febraury 4, the coldest Wisconsin temperature was recorded to be -55 in Couderay.

"Even though in a few locations we might not break the records, we're still going to be some of the coldest all-time lows," Moore said.

Polar Vortex of Stupidity

A few years ago, the Washington Post said global warming would cause cherry trees to start blooming in January.

That didn’t work out for them, so now they are blaming the record cold on global warming.

If the Polar Vortex is caused by global warming, why does it mimic the pattern of the last ice age?

The Methane Big Lie

It is also impossible to build up large amounts of methane in an atmosphere which contains oxygen, because it quickly oxidizes in the presence of oxygen into H2O and CO2. That is why we use it for a fuel. The concentration of methane during mid-latitude summer is a tiny 1.7 PPM, but planets (including Earth) emit a lot of methane. Saturn’s moon Titan has methane seas. The reason Titan is able to hold its methane is because it has almost no oxygen.

Earth is nothing like Titan, because we have oxygen. The global warming potential of methane on Earth is thus very small, and is nearly inconsequential compared to water vapor. So why is the IPCC lying about methane? The reason is very simple. They are attempting to restrict meat production by blaming methane emissions on livestock, and scaring people into thinking their cheeseburger will cause hurricanes and rising seas.

Collapse Of The Polar Melting Scam

Arctic sea ice volume last spring was the highest of the past decade, and this year is well ahead of last year.

There are only about 90 days a year when ice can melt near the pole, and summer temperatures near the pole have been consistently below normal for the past 20 years.

The really bad news for climate alarmists is that Arctic winter temperatures have also turned cold.

Meanwhile, in Antarctica it is the hottest month of the year – and temperatures are below freezing across almost the entire continent. How is ice supposed to melt below freezing?

Polar vortex by the numbers: 6 states in US record temperatures lower than South Pole

Records are being shattered and communities are enduring the harshest cold in years as the polar vortex tightens its grip on the midwestern United States.

After the polar vortex plunged southward, temperatures plummeted under 20 below zero F from North Dakota to northern Illinois on Wednesday morning.

Biting winds made the extreme cold more life-threatening as AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures dropped under 50 below zero. Frostbite can occur in mere minutes on exposed skin in these conditions.

Among the deaths from the snow and cold that struck the Midwest was a man found frozen to death in a garage in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, according to the Associated Press.

The cold has also led to widespread school closures, major travel disruptions and even the suspension of mail service.

Extreme Cold Straining Xcel Energy’s Natural Gas System, Residents Urged To Turn Down Thermostat

Xcel Energy is advising residents in parts of central Minnesota north of the metro to turn down their thermostats and reduce their natural gas use.

According to the energy provider, the extreme weather conditions have resulted in a “significant” strain on Xcel Energy’s natural gas system.

“We need those in Becker, Big Lake, Chisago City, Lindstrom, Princeton, and Isanti to reduce use of natural gas. Until further notice, you are urged to turn down your thermostat to 60 degrees or lower and avoid the use of other natural gas appliances including hot water,” Xcel Energy said.

Too cold for mail: Polar vortex brings subzero temps to Midwest, prompts USPS to suspend service

A deadly arctic deep freeze enveloped the Midwest with record-breaking temperatures on Wednesday, triggering widespread closures of schools and businesses, and the canceling of more than 1,500 flights from Chicago's airports. The cold even prompted the U.S. Postal Service to suspend mail delivery to a wide swath of the region.

Many normal activities shut down and residents huddled inside as the National Weather Service forecast plunging temperatures from one of the coldest air masses in years. The bitter cold is the result of a split in the polar vortex that allowed temperatures to drop much farther south than normal.

It might seem counterintuitive, but the dreaded polar vortex is bringing its icy grip to the Midwest thanks to a sudden blast of warm air in the Arctic.

Get used to it. The polar vortex has been wandering more often in recent years.

It all started with misplaced Moroccan heat.

Last month, the normally super chilly air temperatures 20 miles above the North Pole rapidly rose by about 125 degrees (70 degrees Celsius), thanks to air flowing in from the south.

It's called 'sudden stratospheric warming.'

'Life-Threatening' Arctic Blast To Freeze Nearly 200 Million As Polar Vortex Slams Midwest

A massive blast of Arctic air will hit the Midwest and Northeast by the middle of this week, bringing temperatures to their lowest levels in years.

Using words such as "life-threatening," "dangerous," "brutal," and "unprecedented," the National Weather Service is preparing us for the extreme cold that's forecast to roar into the U.S. next week. -USA Today

"The coldest air of the season will plunge the upper Midwest and Great Lakes into life-threatening conditions," noted the National Weather Service.

Major storm bringing up to a foot of snow and dangerously frigid temps

A major winter storm could drop a foot of snow across southeastern Wisconsin Sunday and Monday, ushering in a dangerously frigid mass of arctic air that is expected to plunge temperatures well below zero Tuesday through Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service in Sullivan.

Wind chills of 35 to 50 degrees below zero are also possible, making even quick trips to the supermarket potentially hazardous, meteorologist Ben Miller of the National Weather Service in Sullivan said Friday.

"If for whatever reason, your car slides into ditch, you have car trouble, bad things can happen," Miller said.

"If you're not properly dressed in warm clothing and you get caught outside, you can put yourself in a pinch pretty easy."

Accumulating snow possible and the coldest air of the season

The snow will continue into early afternoon before moving out of our area. It does look like all of us could see accumulating snow, but the question is how much. Right now, there is an indication that a secondary low will develop along the cold front to the south of us and if this happens this would help enhance our snow totals.

Right now, areas north of I-40 have the best bet of seeing the highest totals, but this could all change so stay tuned to the Weather Authority Forecast.

Whatever snow we do see, it will stick around because it will be followed by the coldest air of the season! Temps on Wednesday will start in the teens and only warm into the 20s for highs. A few areas may also fall into the single digits.

When Science Isn't Science

The Earth’s climate is extraordinarily complex. Unlike dinosaur fossils or organic chemistry or primate behavior, climate is always in flux, with countless factors influencing one another in an endless unfolding of diachronic stochastics. Given this complexity, one might presume that scientists who study planetary climate would be endowed with exceptional patience, scholarly integrity, and intellectual humility. After all, it takes a long time to learn even a little bit about such an intricate system, so part of the job description of climate scientist would seem to be acknowledging that there is only so much that is known about the 1.09 x 1044 or so molecules swirling about in the atmosphere. Even more complex than all that, though, is navigating the public’s interest in the field. Climate is contentious, and a climate scientist will have to keep his cool, sticking to the facts amidst even the most heated rhetorical environments.

Delingpole: Thank You, NewsGuard, for Celebrating My Wisdom on Climate Change

Thank you, thank you, thank you, NewsGuard, for treating all your new subscribers — both of them! — to one of the cleverest, truest things I ever wrote about climate change.

NewsGuard quotes me as saying (in the course of its danger warning to readers thinking of flirting with Breitbart News):

“When amateurs on a blog know more about science than the guys on multi-million dollar grants at U.S. academic institutions informing global energy and environment policy, you know that the time has come to drain the swamp,” Delingpole wrote.

And it presents it as though this were a bad thing to have written.

US THUNDERSNOW vortex strikes east coast as alligators are FROZEN solid

The reptiles, found in a frozen swamp in North Carolina, are jammed solid with only the tips of their snouts poking out from beneath the ice. Temperatures dropped to minus 3 Fahrenheit (-20 Celsius) overnight on January 21 when the alligators froze. Found in Swamp Park, the move is “a survival technique, that they have acquired over a long time,” the park said on Facebook.
