Polar Vortex 101 from NASA

“It’s cold, therefore global warming is a myth.” Well I guess (misquoting the bible) the ignorant will always be with us. Here is a two-minute NASA-produced video explaining why the polar vortex decided to pay a visit to northern Florida.

And Peter Sinclair of the Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media has a 7-minute video placing the polar vortex within a long-line of extreme weather events rendered more likely by climate change.

The video contains short interview clips with a series of climate scientists recorded at the American Geophysicial Union fall meeting.

I have nothing extra to add.
