Polar vortex brings deadly cold snap to US states

Cities are all but shutting down across the US Midwest as the region shivers in a deadly cold snap known as a polar vortex.

At least seven people have been killed in several states as a result of the arctic weather.

Temperatures fell to -30C (-22F) in Chicago - colder than parts of Antarctica - and -37C in North Dakota.

Freezing weather will chill 250 million Americans, and 90 million will experience -17C (0F) or below.


California 20 C today, sunny too!!!!


Anything going on with the weather that anyone, anywhere thinks is either abnormal or unusually normal, predicted or unexpected, unpleasant, inconvenient or just plain weird will be blamed on global warming!

I saw a documentary TV show where rich, high-carbon-footprint owners of beachfront property were complaining about sea-level rise. You can't make this stuff up.


The ocean levels have only risen something like 7 cm since 1993. If it continues at the current rate, that would be about 70 cm in 100 years.

I seem to recall that something like 40% of that rise is due to ocean warming.

But the rise rate isn't constant. And 7 cm is a _huge_ amount, enough
to increase the damage of storms by billions of dollars.

Even a small rise in sea level is considered a big problem by some. Maybe it means seawater reaches the front porch during high tide just a little more often. But if you are doing something that you think is contributing to a problem that annoys you, then you should stop doing whatever it is you are doing.

On another segment some were worried about the effects of sea-level rise on coastal tourist areas, while not really reflecting on the possibility that the travel needed for tourism could be contributing to the problem.

As usual, pollution is always the other guy's fault.

Everything on a planetary scale is huge compared to a human scale.
And billions of dollars is quite small compared to the cost of the
entire human civilization.

If 7 cm rise of the ocean level is huge, then what about one cm? Or
one mm? Large, medium, or small?
