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?
