CBS This Morning: The extreme cold we’re experiencing is obviously an example of global warming

You can’t make this stuff up.  Via Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston:

During the February 13 broadcast of CBS This Morning, host Charlie Rose and his guest turned to the topic of this year’s harsh winter, calling the extreme cold an example of global warming.

Guest Michio Kaku, a physics professor from New York City College–not a climatologist, but a physicist–claimed that the "wacky weather" could get "even wackier" and its all because of global warming. "What we’re seeing is that the jet stream and the polar vortex are becoming unstable. Instability of historic proportions. We think it’s because of the gradual heating up of the North Pole. The North Pole is melting," professor Kaku said.

"That excess heat generated by all this warm water is destabilizing this gigantic bucket of cold air… So that’s the irony, that heating could cause gigantic storms of historic proportions," the prof explained.

This was all because of global warming, Rose insisted….

CBS Host Norah O’Donnell also took the occasion of the discussion to claim that 2014 will be the hottest summer ever.

So there you have it.  According to noted climatologist Norah O’Donnell, 2014 will be the hottest summer ‘evah’. For her sake, I hope her mastery of climate science exceeds her mastery of geography.


A question comes to mind: If the extreme cold this winter is an example of global warming, wouldn’t extreme heat this summer be an example of global cooling?

    And it’s all our fault.

      It’s the liberal’s fault!

    Tell that to the "Minnesotans for global warming". They have had the coldest winter in memory, aand the Great Lakes are now 88% frozen with only Lake Ontario with substantial open water;

      CBS uses the strangest characters to promote climate science. Physicist Michio Kaku, a New York City College professor, is really
      a futurist who promotes paranormal phenomena like ‘telepathy, telekinesis and mind reading’, but I guess that is good enough for climate science.

    All hail Carbon Dioxide the atmospheric trace gas which controls the climate of the whole planet, and that without a doubt, even though there are many other things which influence the climate, including many of which we are as yet completely ignorant, and many others of which we are aware, but cannot measure accurately.

    Let us panic, and bow down before this gas.

    People love solutions. It’s in our nature. So the Orwellian statist manufactures a problem for which he has the solution. But you got to keep your story straight. So what if it has been colder than a #&^%. This just proves that the problem that Prof Statist has been describing is true. And we know the solution – Carbon taxes, let the EPA loose on an unsuspecting population.
    I’ve been reading about psychology lately and it seems that people will believe stuff that they hear often enough and with flashy presentation. This has been the fare of snake oil salesmen throughout history. Boom you farm is gone. Now, boom your liberty is gone because the EPA tells how much water you can use to flush your toilet. Enough.

    Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds is a book written in 1841, as relevant today as then, which exposes National and Political Delusions that cause economic bubbles, ideological crusades, and scientific fraud that fleece the public of their liberties and property rights.

    How to stop the Environmental Cult Wackos in 2016
    1 – repeal the Executive Order that created the EPA
    2 – put the EPA under ‘partisan control’ in the Treasury and fire everyone
    3 – end all green energy subsidies and shut down bird killing wind farms
    4 – make "Drill Baby Drill" our national energy motto & authorize all pipelines

    Climate Change is cyclical, not anthropomorphic. Since "vortex" means "spinning" did the wacky environmentalists just invent a phrase that’s backs up the truth?

    • Founders_1791

      Yep, they do it all the time.
      …………seems their thoughts are what is spinning, out of control!

    • MaMcGriz

      Boy you better quit undermining their hysteria with your logic.

      They won’t like you.

      You’d be scarred for life.

    Did someone say "Orwellian?"

    Here is more from Michio Kaku:

    "CBS This Morning featured a futurist who promotes paranormal phenomena like ‘telepathy, telekinesis and mind reading’ as climate expert during its February 13 broadcast. CBS only identified physicist Michio Kaku as a New York City College professor, with no mention of his special abilities."

    Kaku’s global warming comments were not well received by the scientific community:

    ‘No effing clue what he is talking about’: Meteorologist Dr. Ryan Maue
    Calls Warmist Physics Prof. Michio Kaku of NY City College ‘a festering
    wound on field of meteorology’ for Kaku’s blaming ‘excess heat’ on
    record cold and snow"

    "Meteorologist Dr. Ryan Maue of Weather Bell tweeted on Kaku:
    He’s ‘like a festering wound on field of meteorology, Michio Kaku says
    ‘we think’ harsh winter is due to global warming,” Maue wrote."

    “Kaku has no effing clue what he is talking about – ‘unstable jet stream’ — huh? How could someone supposedly so learned sound so doltish?,” Maue asked on Feburary 13, 2014."

    “Must apologize to Bill Nye — he is now number 2 most egregious
    butcher of meteorology and climate science. New rankings come out
    weekly,” Maue quipped."

    "Houston Chronicle climate reporter Eric Berger joined in the Kaku bashing, noting Kaku is “a physicist (and not a well-regarded one among his peers) not an atmospheric scientist.”

      Michio Kaku loves being on TV. He loves being a media darling and does what he can to promote himself to the right people.

    More proof of the theory of diminishing returns as applied to education. It goes along with the disastrous results 28 straight years of Harvard and/or Yale in the White House.

    The useful idiots of the Press. Very predictable. Hang on to your wallets.
