State-Sanctioned Stupidity: White House Blames ‘Polar Vortex’ on Global Warming in Blog Post

Posted by on Jan 09, 2014 at 7:35 am

Really, it doesn’t get any dumber than this. You would think after the humiliation of seeing global warming extremists getting stuck in ice down in Antarctica and record-shattering cold across the United States that these extremist nutjobs would lay low for awhile. At least wait until it gets hot this summer before peddling this idiotic psychobabble. But they can’t help themselves, since their religious devotion to junk science has such a hold on them.

The Obama administration is pushing back against skeptics who claim this week’s “polar vortex” of cold weather is proof global warming is a myth, saying weather patterns such as these are actually a result of climate change.

In a post on the official White House blog Wednesday, the administration starts by saying no single weather event proves or disproves climate change.

“If you’ve been hearing that extreme cold spells, like the one we’re having in the United States now, disproves global warming, don’t believe it,” Dr. John Holdren, President Obama’s science adviser, says in a video included in the blog post.

However, the White House says extreme cold spells can actually be attributed to global warming, and that such weather patterns will likely appear with more frequency as climate change continues.

Well, since the polar vortex has been defined by the American Meteorological Society dating back to at least 1959, long predating the global warming hoax, who looks like the idiot here?

    So…..if it rains, or it’s dry, if the wind blows, or it’s still, if it’s extremely cold, or blazing hot, if it hails or not it is all attributable to global warming??

    I’ll make the climate chicken-littles a straight up deal, tell me the exact weather in Cheyenne, Wyoming this Saturday, within the next hour, and I’ll support the global warming crowd, however if you can’t even tell us the weather this Saturday perhaps your assertions re: global warming are a bit inaccurate.

    You’ve got one hour and the clock is ticking.
