  1. Might be a good time to buy land in Alaska. Farmland even.

  2. Here’s a bit of conjecture. Never mind the atmospheric ridge over western North america, when the flow off the pacific weakens enough, the mountains are enough of a barrier to direct the marine flow northward.

  3. Big Al says:

    I had thought about this some time ago, when the first “polar vortex” hit. When I mentioned this to my friends, they gave me a look like an “ah ha ” moment had hit them.

  4. gymnosperm says:

    Another conjecture: The mountains serve to anchor the ridge in a process similar to Ekman transport in the oceans. Air forced to rise deflects north in the northern hemisphere.

  5. Anything is possible says:

    The answer is “global warming.”

    What was the question again?

    • au1corsair says:

      I thought the answer was “racism.”


      How about “it’s all the other guy’s fault!”

      Turnips–er, Progressives are never speechless. Thoughtless, perhaps, but they’ve always got words to spew.

      • Andy Oz says:

        Turnips are a racist vegetable. They hate carrots and despise parsnips just because they are a different colour and vote republican

  6. Hew Manatee says:

    The map indicates that there are “humans” living in California, and possibly Oregon also.
    Clearly this is an error.

  7. The Norsemen again? Through Russia and Canada? I told you we have to watch these savages.

  8. ren says:

    Can see another strong wave in the upper stratosphere rise in temperature.

    Polar vortex about 20 km.

  9. ren says:

    The current temperature.

  10. ren says:

    This week, the ice on the Great Lakes will reach 60%.

  11. richard says:

    good for a chuckle on this freezing day.

    “Figure 1 shows sensors at three different heights record the temperatures in one of Pico Technology’s storerooms. The sensor readings differ by at least 1°C so clearly, no matter how accurate the individual sensors, we will never be able to measure room temperature to 1°C accuracy”

  12. theyouk says:

    Richard–Great comment. I’ve often used the analogy (question) of “What was the temperature (accurate to .01 degrees C) inside your house yesterday?” When you get people thinking about the challenges in this supposedly simple problem it typically creates a nice ‘a ha’ moment.

    • richard says:

      I like the conclusion-

      High precision temperature measurement is possible through the use of well-specified and suitably calibrated sensors and instrumentation. However, the accuracy of these measurements will be meaningless unless the equipment and sensors are used correctly”

      Really, what hope for estimations , GISS, up to 1200 kilometers from weather stations, to hundredths of a degree!

  13. Barbara says:

    I love Arizona!!

  14. Jason Calley says:

    I can see now how the early Americans killed off all the mega-fauna! Some of the spears in that top picture must have been 800 miles long!


    • R2Dtoo says:

      But you still have to place them properly – those were big critters. It’s -27C this morning in the middle of the great white north. More to come I’m afraid. I sold my beachfront property on Hudson Bay (sold at a profit to David Suzuki).
