Climate scientists and global warming alarmists have yet another explanation for the frigid temperatures and multiple snowstorms pummeling the US this winter; arguing that “rising arctic temperatures” actually causes colder weather.
The study, titled “Warm Arctic episodes linked with increased frequency of extreme winter weather in the United States,” was published online this week by Nature Communications. The academic journal claims “seesaw temperatures” are behind the giant winter storms that struck the east coast of the US this season.
“As the Arctic transitions from a relatively cold state to a warmer one, the frequency of severe winter weather in mid-latitudes increases through the transition,” writes the article.
“These findings suggest that the continuation of rapid Arctic warming and melting contribute to more frequent episodes of severe winter across the [Northern Hemisphere] mid-latitude continents,” adds the author.
The study echoes comments made by notorious climate-change alarmist Al Gore last year, where he explained that the “bitter cold” gripping the US was “exactly” what one would expect as a result of global warming.
It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis. https://t.co/6UfJ9Xxpq6
