Top Climate Scientist : Melting Arctic Causing -34 Temperatures In New Mexico

ScreenHunter_409 Jan. 20 15.33

Twitter / TucsonPeck: + #SWClimate – big question: …

The principle is simple. Warm, toasty air in the Arctic is melting the ice. Then the warm Arctic air plunges south and cools sixty or seventy degrees as it mixes with warm tropical air.

Using climate math, the average of 80 and 32 is -34. Most climate scientists probably never should have made it past third grade.

Last winter, missing Arctic ice made the US warm, but this winter it is making the US cold.

    Warm air Falling South is compressed and that cools it off. ;)
    Or Overpeck should STFU because he does not know WTF he is talking about.
    Personally I pick option 2! :)

    What unbelievable Orwellian bullshit.
    Absolute hogwash.
    But we can expect only cow manure to dribble out of the mouth of the guy (Overpeck) who apparently was involved in laying the foundation of bullshit to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period. According to Steve McIntyre:

    There has been a considerable amount of speculation over the past few years about which “leading” climate scientist told David Deming that we have to “get rid of” the Medieval Warm Period, including speculation (e.g. ukweatherworld) that it was Jonathan Overpeck (recently one of two Coordinating Lead Authors of AR4 chapter 6).

    Jonathan Overpeck has said some crazy things in the Climategate 1 and 2 emails. The most telling was “We must get rid of the Medieval Warm Period” – IMO the most significant one of them all.

    Overpeck overpecked his keyboard and has too many “is” in his tweet and he didn’t use a question mark. This is what happens when you have slave labor, ie. grad students, doing all your work for you. :-)

  5. I think a speculative paper came out a few years, post hoc, that tried to explain the cold temperatures in terms of Arctic ice melt. (I’d have to look up the the name of the paper, which I’ve forgotten.) Strangely, this dubious single paper, becomes the climate orthodoxy/consensus explanation for every time it’s cold in the Northern hemisphere…

    Leonardo is on the case – pumping out tons of CO2 in the process:

    • “My roof is covered with solar panels. My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50km a day. That can be done with a plug.”

      Apparently salesmen, field service technicians, couriers, taxi drivers, tradesmen, and so on, aren’t “normal”. Although I also suspect normal people can’t afford a few dozen motor cars in their garage to swap, depending on their use for the day.

    Whatever… Maybe “rapid” arctic sea ice decline caused the last ice-age?
