The POLAR VORTEX – Panic In The Streets (Oh, It’s Winter)

For a few days now there has been panic in the Streets over, wait, it’s coming, Oh IT’S WINTER. We are being warned about this MONSTER from THE NORTH POLE, the DREADED POLAR VORTEX. Guess what, it’s to Winter what Hurricanes are to Summer. In Momma Nature’s normal fashion, called weather, the world does get hot, and the world does get cold. I’ve seen these winter outbreaks of cold all the time. Today’s biggest laugh from the purveyor’s of weather panic, the GlowBall Warming Phanatics, like Algore, the Polar Vortex is a new phenomena caused by Glowball Warming. This is as hilarious as the GlowBall Warming hunters going to Antarctica looking for existence of GlowBall Warming in the height of the Southern Hemisphere’s SUMMER, only to get stuck in the ICE, the rescue ship from China is now stuck in the ice, and another rescue ship from Australia decided not to get stuck. But America to the rescue with its super Ice Breaker called the Polar Star. The world is closing today and tomorrow. GlowBall Warming’s Icy Winds and Temperature are just too cold. My friends in Finland Laugh at this which is their normal winter. After all, who can’t handle -20C, -4F?

    U.S. Coast Guard sending help for ships trapped in Antarctic ice
    By Richard A. Serrano | January 4, 2014, 4:14 p.m.

    WASHINGTON—The U.S. Coast Guard was dispatching a special ice-breaking cutter to help free two ships lodged in the Antarctic, officials announced Saturday.

    The Polar Star, the Coast Guard’s only active heavy polar ice breaker, was being sent to help free the Russian and Chinese vessels from thick bands of ice, officials said.

    According to a Coast Guard statement, the Polar Star left its home port of Seattle in early December on one of its primary missions, Operation Deep Freeze. The mission involves breaking a channel through the sea ice of McMurdo Sound to resupply and refuel the U.S. Antarctic Program’s McMurdo Station on Ross Island.

    “Our highest priority is safety of life at sea, which is why we are assisting in breaking a navigational path for both of these vessels,” said Vice Adm. Paul F. Zukunft, the Coast Guard Pacific Area commander. “We are always ready and duty-bound to render assistance in one of the most remote and harsh environments on the face of the globe.”

    I’m somewhat less annoyed that our Coast Guard is going to help, now that I’ve read that the USCGC Polar Star (WAGB-10) was heading to McMurdo anyway. Nevertheless, I have to wonder why Russia, with several heavy icebeakers in service, including nuclear-powered vessels, isn’t the nation going to rescue an Russian ship, Академик Шокальский.

  2. The Polar Vortex is at -13C (98F for those who don’t speak Celcius) right now. But this was last Friday. The snow eater came last night and melted the ground flaw cover (snow)

    News Release

    U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Polar Star to assist vessels in Antarctica

    ALAMEDA – The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Polar Star is responding to a Jan. 3rd request from the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) to assist the Russian-Flagged Akademik Shokalskiy and Chinese-Flagged Xue Long that are reportedly ice-bound in the Antarctic. The Russian and Chinese Governments have also requested assistance from the United States.

    Coast Guard Pacific Area Command Center received the request Thursday evening from AMSA after they evaluated the situation and determined there is sufficient concern that the vessels may not be able to free themselves from the ice. AMSA has been coordinating rescue operations since the Akademik Shokalskiy became beset with ice on Dec. 24. The Polar Star will cut short its planned stop in Sydney to support the AMSA’s request for assistance.

    “The U.S. Coast Guard stands ready to respond to Australia’s request,” said Vice Adm. Paul F. Zukunft, Coast Guard Pacific Area Commander. “Our highest priority is safety of life at sea, which is why we are assisting in breaking a navigational path for both of these vessels. We are pleased to learn the passengers of the Akademik Shokalskiy have been transported safely off the vessel. We are always ready and duty bound to render assistance in one of the most remote and harsh environments on the face of the globe.”

  4. I would give as much help to “warmests” trapped in ice than I would to anti-gun nuts caught in Chicago. I fail to understand why guys like us are perpetually bailing out leftist jerk offs when the get caught in their own bull shit. You know, if we just let them abort their children, have queer marriage and get trapped in ice after a few years they’re gone! Let’em die already. They aren’t worth crap alive anyway.

    If you like your ice, you can keep it, Period!

    So Glowball warming is just another of the leftist lies. Whooda thought? Actually they have a pretty good record of continuous lies since Wilson. At least these commies are consistent. Deadly, but consistent.

    Unfortunately, the mindset of the leftist fascist shitpeople is not such that they can live with the alternative of you tolerantly letting them have their way while calmly watching them smash their emotionally contorted faces into the brick wall they insist on head-butting.

    Yes, it’s true that their claim is that all knowledge is relative and that there are no absolutes or obligatory moral truths. There is nonetheless one thing they do know with absolute certainty. It is that if they want, and if you exist, you therefore exist to provide them with what they want. It doesn’t after all, have to be true in the old-fashioned sense. They just have to make it true now with their liberal, evolution-shaping, ballot box super powers.

    “Abandon all traditional inhibitions Ye who would be like gods on earth; to make man in Your neotenous image and Your soft-handed likeness” (The secret to expressing this power – shhhh – is bureaucratic totalitarianism and herd culling)

    Like I’ve observed many times before, the socialist proposition, as I was told directly by a socialist, is an “all society proposition”; one unlimited in scope, in reach, or in sway. That means: “One god in three expressions: society, government, and the holy and world-forming word of the bureaucrat; reigning everywhere and always, without hinder or let, unending and without exit, over everyone, all value forming acts, thoughts, and relations; forever and ever. Amen.”

    You presence is therefore required at the Liberal Social Solidarity Exposition and Moral Lepers Orgy. Midnight tonight, in front of the statue of the Goddess of Government Love. All ages included. No demurrers accepted. Remember: The individual mandate is now the law.

  6. 1 - Comm Bay 1912

    That’s a photograph of Commonwealth Bay, Antarctica. It was taken in 1912, decades before even global warming’s previous incarnation “global cooling” had been invented. In fact, it was taken almost 112 years to the day before the Akademik Shokalskiy sailed into the exact same harbor. You’ll notice the January 1912 edition of Commonwealth Bay is relatively ice-free. Fast-forward a little more than a century and not only is the harbor icier than whatever flows through Hillary Clinton’s veins, but the whole continent’s ice has increased to its highest level in 35 years.

    One might think even someone on a boat full of global warmists might have bothered to at least check the actual weather forecast. As the cast and crew of the Akademik Shokalskiy discovered the hard way, global warmist icons like Gore make the perky morning weather gal on a small-market community public access channel look like the Oracle at Delphi. And yet, there they were, desperately awaiting rescue from one ice-bound ship after another. The whole saga took a few days to unfold, as ship after ship ran into the same subzero conditions.

  7. If Global Warming wasn’t a scam it’s self-promoting and well-compensated professional advocates wouldn’t have to stoop to the wholesale manufacture of fake evidence in order to justify keeping their snouts rooted in the public trough.

    Clearly, if the study of Climate Change teaches us anything it’s that Earth’s climate is constantly changing. And, since we get our warmth from the sun, it doesn’t take a genius to understand that variations in the sun’s output produce temperature variations here on the planet’s surface. QED.

    But, straight thinking doesn’t result in taxpayer funded grants to academic climate change cheerleaders, nor does it give Obama’s overzealous EPA regulators license to hobble the US economy, nor does ordinary common sense provide a suitable pretext for unscrupulous UN Chicken Littles to line their pockets by taxing Western democracies for an entirely imaginary catastrophe.

    So, bottom line, as long as American taxpayers will continue to sit still for it, the International coalition of self-interested climate change snake oil salesmen will continue to loot the treasury, use climate change as an excuse to stifle US economic recovery, and provide the rational for greedy UN bureaucrats to confiscate our national wealth.

  8. A few things the warmists never explain is how the Vikings managed to cultivate in Greenland, The Mauder Minimum where Europe froze over for a few hundred years starting in the 1300 (BTW, that’s when the Vikings abandoned Greenland). The warmup afterwards that sparked the Industrial Revolution. And the little Ice Age where Europe froze not as deep as the Mauder Minimum, but sparked a lot of artists for all the snow scenes at Christmas in Europe, the frozen Canals of Holland and England’s Thames River. The warmist talk of retreating Glaciers, but won’t explain how in Alaska, a retreating glacier has shown tree stumps lopped off by the advancing glacier. Who put the trees there. And finally, the sun’s output now is lower than the time of when GlowBall Warming was invented. Inquiring Minds would like to know.

  9. Global Warming is a purely political agenda. The left wingers lost the Cold War, now they need a new means to cow the public into giving them more power and control. As HL Mencken once said:

    The whole aim of practical politics is to menace the public with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

  10. Here’s the full quote:

    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

    H. L. Mencken

  11. Eric, thanks for the quote. I know Mencken is one of your favorites. Are you aware of any insight he might have offered into how the national media functions in-concert to keep the population malleable?
