Blanket 24/7 media coverage of the short but frigid ‘Polar Vortex’ temperatures — climate change? global warming? — provides a cornucopia of material for this month’s ‘This is Not Cool’ video.

    The 4x and 10x bits were a bit in your face. Maybe some nice floating text
    would work better.

    Very interesting interviews and discussion. +yaleclimateforum It seems some
    of the audio is slightly out of sync, at least in the first few minutes.

    The statistically-continuous polar front wave number changes with changing
    temperature gradient and should statistically set itself aligned with the
    Rocky and Himalayan mountains. Interesting to watch this change over the

    Dr. Mann is a SHAM! Oh have the brain dead masses have so quickly
    forgotten about Climategate IPCC fraud, I mean “consensus”…..laughable!
    Taking a serious situation and attempting to profit from it while handing
    over more control to the oligarchs of the corporate system we currently
    live in hardly seems like a logical approach to “Saving the Environment.”

    The ‘Polar Vortex’ and the “Arctic Paradox” :- The current extreme cold weather in the USA & Canada, nor the current drought in California, or the massive UK France flooding with 8 mtr / 25 feet high ocean waves hitting the coast there, nor the earlier Christmas snow storms there, would be a surprise to those who had seen these videos on Climate State in mid-2013 or since.

    Have a good look at this video Published on Jun 3, 2013: “New video couples interviews with two experts — Rutgers’ Jennifer Francis and Weather Underground’s Jeff Masters — to explore the ‘Why?’ of two years of mirror images of weather across North America.”

    “The ** Arctic Paradox ** was coined during recent winters when speculations arose that the dramatic changes in the Arctic may be linked to severe snowstorms and cold temperatures in mid-latitudes, particularly along the U.S. east coast and in Europe.”

    Oh no global warming ! What are we gonna do ? The only solution is a new
    world order and Agenda 21, what joke this video is. Haarp and our
    government couldn’t possibly be behind this faked global warming, cause
    some jack ass from Stanford said so. I’m guessing someone from Stanford
    just got a promotion recently. Come get your PROPAGANDA here !

    Great video; I found the flashing percentage numbers annoying to look at
    but otherwise excellent vid and information.

    While the content is good, there’s a little bit too much stimulation in
    places (especially “10x! 10x! 10x!”). Be careful with making the editing
    distracting instead of enhancing.

    The damage getting done to this planet by fossil fuel burning is a crime
    beyond everything ever done by mankind. The Amazon will burn and over 50%
    of all species will be gone, the Oceans will DIE and all in our lifetime
    and that is just the opening scene ….The reality of what is happening
    makes doomsday holy-wood movies look like romantic comedies.

    Oh mow many hurricanes did they predict? How many did they get? Case closed.
    So let talk Typhoons. Are there more in quantity and severity because of
    the massive amount growth of Antarctic Ice?

    I guess they forgot some of the super hurricanes from the 30’s just watched
    the history channel and they had a severe hurricane in upper new England
    the winds were extreme houses collapse, etc, 890+ people died, now if you
    had told those people that global warming is happening they probably would
    believe it since they don’t know any better we only live a short time in
    geological time so we can easily be duped into just about anything when we
    lack enough knowledge about history. they are so desperate to prove man
    made warming they are basically fabricating information, they are paying
    people to blow the normal weather out of proportion to reality, droughts
    may ormay not be spreading but politics and wars have more to do with that
    then climate change. people may be starving in the world but that is
    because of politics and greed not climate. controlling markets increase
    inflation, makes it appear food prices are going up due to shortages that
    are caused by climate change the reality is food shortages are artificial
    due to environmental controls by gov tokeep supply low to keep prices high
    where do you think gov gets all that cheese milk butter grain from to give
    to foreign countries as aid? or to welfare recipients? they take excess off
    the shelves to keep prices high.many farms have been shut down to save a
    fish or a owl or a salamander or whatever. but they cannot tell you that
    they have to terriorize you into believing your life property and
    prosperity is a crime against humanity because your lifestyle is changing
    the climate.
