SurrealClimate: When people freeze to death in Poland, warmist Brad Johnson blames global warming

ThinkProgress » As Climate Talks Plod Along, The World Burns
– Dynamic winter-storm systems driven by the rapidly warming Arctic have plunged much of Europe into killer cold weather for the second year in a row, months after a summer of record heat and precipitation. Up to 30 people have frozen to death in Poland, and thirty more were killed in the rest of Europe.

The European summer heat wave was due to a deep Arctic cold spell - which resulted in massive Arctic ice loss. The European winter cold spell is due to an Arctic heat wave, which goes to prove you can eat your cake and have it too!

How stupid do they think people are?

The cold Arctic air that is making them cold is generated IN THE ARCTIC! Warmth cannot make cold.

The "rapidly warming Arctic" does not exist. Temperature monitors around the Arctic Rim all agree that the temperature has done nothing or decreased in the last 50 years. In fact, it is simply warm air and water pumped into the Arctic during the summer that melts ice. Solar input is essentially meaningless, being about 3% of normal vertical solar energy at the peak of summer (lower or zero at all other times).

We have a natural cycle of annual summer Arctic ice going between lows and highs. What many do not know is that the northern passages are open more than they are closed, being passable for 73 of the last 113 years.

The summer European heat wave (it was actually cool in Europe, but what does a big lie here or there matter when arguing a fantasy), fires in Russia, and floods in southern Asia resulted from the jet stream suffering "blocking" of its motion due to a bolus of Arctic air stalling the jet stream into large meanders which caused alternating cold and warm regions around the Northern Hemisphere.

And, by the way, this kind of jet stream blocking is typical when the Earth is in a cooling trend. Golly gee, Batman, what's a girl to do?
