RUSH LIMBAUGH: The media creating ‘Polar Vortex’ to try and blame ‘cold’ on global warming

Rush Limbaugh opened his show today talking about a term he says the media has made up in order to make this cold air seem completely unprecedented, suggesting that this is part of ‘man-made global warming’. And that term is ‘polar vortex’. But Rush says the reality is that the arctic air always comes down in order to make us colder during the winter and there’s nothing new about this ‘polar vortex’.

He explains below:

    One need look no further then yahoo to prove his point:–politics.html

    The second link’s headline is: “GLOBAL WARMING IS FREEZING YOU”

    Another quote:
    “As crazy as it sounds, global warming may be at least partly to blame.”

    These people need to be institutionalized. Their brand of “crazy” hurts people.

    • Nukeman60

      The second article was really interesting. In it, they declared “This particularly aspect of climate change science is not yet definitive”. Translated, that means they haven’t fudged it into their climate models yet.

      They used two points to explain the statement. 1) that the arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world and 2) the jet stream slowing down is bringing far colder temps from the north.

      My suggestion would be to them that if indeed the arctic is warming twice as fast, then when the jet stream dips down, wouldn’t it bring down warmer air? I welcome that right now (I’m sitting in a -45° wind chill).

      • warpmine

        First reaction: head tilt and uhhhhhhh. WTF are these asshats talking about?

        One thing is certain, these assclowns should not be allowed anywhere near a computer, ever!

        • Nukeman60

          My questions would be, 1) “If the polar vortex is breaking up in the arctic, is it also breaking up in the antarctic, thereby cooling their summer in the southern hemisphere?” and 2) “Won’t the same thing happen to our summer, then, when the arctic polar vortex is breaking up, allowing us to have cooler summers?”

          Either way, they can’t have global warming when the summer AND winter are cooler. They are getting themselves in a quandary here, whereby they will have to invent something new, like man-made global warming has intelligence and is discriminatory as to where it affects the planet.

          Hmmm, intelligent design? Perhaps, the left has found a new god.

          • warpmine

            You have to remember the intellect level of these clowns. They believe a radioactive half life of five minutes is less dangerous than one of 4 billion years.

            • Nukeman60

              Well, to be honest, a radioactive half-life is merely how long that isotope takes to be reduced by half.

              The key is to see how long you can keep their pinheads next to that radioactive isotope (the longer the better, because it will hopefully mutate them into something smarter).

              • warpmine

                Sure but put them next to U238 for an extended time will get you nothing more than what you started with as opposed to protactinium as it decays into U233 in which case you’ll get foaming at the mouth and loss of bodily function.

                • Nukeman60

                  So which do you think is heavier, a ton of feathers or a ton of gold? (trick question, by the way)

                  I didn’t mean to get you off on a tangent, but I just felt it important to say that it’s not necessarily the length of decay TIME that’s important (in this case), but the amount of radioactivity that makes those two different. Given two radioisotopes exactly the same, if you stand next to one for twice as long, you will get twice the absorption.

                  For example, Cesium-137 has a half-life of about 30 years, while Iodine-131 has a half-life of about 8 days. Both are bad, but time near it, distance from it, and lack of shielding all effect how they affect us.

                  That was all I was pointing out in your original example. Sorry to distract.

                • warpmine

                  My point is that the dumb bastards are clueless regarding the nuclear fuel cycle and all the benefits of those by products from the fission just like the morons that scream about the hydrocarbon fuel mining without any clue of just how many products we get from the stocks. I hate them through and through as they uck up my life and my children’s future lives because they’re terrified of the word nuclear reactor.

                  Once it’s been established that person is liberal, you can rule out explaining LFTR technology and the benefits of it. The only thing they hear is nuclear and in their puny minds, that has to be bad.

                • Nukeman60

                  Yeah, I know what you’re saying. I apologize for the side track down isotope lane, lol.

                • warpmine

                  Apology unnecessary.

        • badbadlibs

          They shouldn’t be allowed near computers is right, except when this happens:

          • warpmine

            Yes, read about that four and half years ago. None of these people would be teaching or hold a job with any more skill level of a dog excrement engineer in a sane world.

            • badbadlibs

              It’s just stunning how much these cretins get away with. Those emails should have sunk their stupid aspirations to fool the world for their own gain….but, no not with the lying media and a populace so mind boggling easy to fool.

    • Steve Angell

      Other new thing is to give winter storms names. Obama started this with Sandy which never was a Hurricane.

      • This one should be named, “Al.”

    • Judges718

      They aren’t just crazy. They are depraved and EVIL.

      Global Warming, Climate Change, Climate Disruption, Carbon Pollution has nothing to do with protecting the environment. It is just an instrument used by the greedy Marxist left to extort money from the productive to redistribute to the unproductive in order to enrich and empower themselves.

      They are selfish, greedy, demagogic, corrupt, lying, thieving, statist, robber barons. They will bankrupt you, me, our children, our grandchildren, and our country, all to steal their way to personal wealth and power.

      If we were still a nation that respected the rule of law, these thieving miscreants would be occupying cells in the same prison as Bernie Madoff.

      • badbadlibs

        Hear, hear! Agree 100%!

  • PVG

    “Polar vortex”? More like intelligence vacuum.

    • warpmine

      I predict the over use of the term “vortex” in the near future.

      • toongoon

        And possibly used in conjunction with “racist”?

        • warpmine

          They’ll probably mutate the meaning to combine the terms.

          • Nukeman60

            I’m thinking “flux capacitor” will enter into it somewhere down the line.

            • FreeManWalking

              Those things are awsome

  • PicklePlants

    With so much information available to debunk the myths of global warming, I am disappointed we are still talking about it. You would think the fools would just get embarrassed and quietly skulk away.

    I gotta laugh about the ship caught in the ice though……….

  • steprock

    If we had a heatwave they’d crow: Global warming! See?

    • badbadlibs

      Don’t they already do that when it gets hot in the summer? !
      Yeah, stop the presses, there’s a heat wave in July!

  • timsrighty

    POLAR VORTEX THS! Love Rush the commentator and the band from Canada.

  • Lives4Freedom

    15 minutes of studying Earth’s climate history should clear it up to anyone that when it comes to human power over the climate, we are, collectively, a speck of dust on the steering wheel of the bus that the Earth drives. We are just along for the ride. 🙂

    • warpmine

      That very truth will get you nowhere in the very small universe of climate hoaxers.

    • Darrell Griffin

      Expressed solely as a heat gain/ heat loss equation, like I would calculate for a movie theatre or operating room, man is incapable of terra forming…period.

      We could have a unified global effort to change the climate, but we simply do not have the capability or capacity to do so.

  • aposematic

    A polar vortex would be sucking all the cold area into itself, not dumping the cold air toward the equator…just saying the term itself doesn’t make sense used in that context. Unless you speak or write for the MSM/Press just making definitions/stuff up. To think these people are college educated?????Wow!

    • warpmine

      Technically, you’re spot on, but please don’t confuse the progtard trolling at this sight

      • Hiker275

        Why is this spot on? Just curious. I’ve not followed the weather reports closely, other than it’s unusually cold and the storm has covered a large area. I get the idea of a vortex sucking as opposed to spreading. But, how is this really different than say a hurricane, cyclone, or tornado? Those are all similar in that they are swirling in a vortex fashion with, I think, the low pressure at the center. So doesn’t this really imply that a polar vortex is a storm akin to a hurricane or tornado, but starting at one of the poles, and traveling just like those other storms? Hurricanes don’t spill heat towards the north pole, they just move in that general direction, dumping rain along the way.

  • Darrell Griffin

    The whole “Polar Vortex” thing is a play on that ridiculous movie “The Day After Tomorrow.”

    Where the 3 super cell vortexes freeze the northern hemisphere overnight.

    It’s absurd mass marketing from absurd people who hold absurd ideas.

    • Nukeman60

      Interesting you should bring that movie up, because Al Gore used a scene from that movie when he tried to claim the arctic glaciers were melting.

      Just a little inconvenient truth, doncha know.

      • disqus_qhlhJcofRi

        you people are so stupid.

        • Nukeman60

          Ow. So cutting – and a master of the English language, to boot. Welcome, Al. How’s the $9 million beach front property? Have the oceans risen enough yet to swamp you?

  • imatellau

    duh, hey hunEE, ya hear that? Those TV porters r sayyin that this hear cold is cuz of global warming….. and sum kinda pOLL-R vorchecks… i guess we best turn off our coal furnace so the planet can kool off!!

    and those arrogant SOB’s wonder why we can’t stand them!!! We know your lying your Arses off to push an agenda that will collapse our society!

  • Conservator1

    That was vintage Rush and he nails it once more. I can’t find the video, but Fox News’ Bill Hemmer described a ‘polar vortex’ as Limbaugh spoke about.

    Below is a story from Fox were Hemmer and MacCallum discuss the ‘polar vortex’ – but there is a video from today where Bill Hemmer uses graphs to illustrate how the arctic blast is effecting the northern hemisphere.

    ‘Polar vortex’ descends into US, bringing sub-zero temperatures

    “A so-called “polar vortex” of dense, frigid air descended upon much of the U.S. Monday, dropping temperatures in some parts of the country to near-record lows and prompting wind chill warnings from Montana to Alabama.

    The Midwest is being hit with the brunt of the cold, with temperatures plunging to 36 below zero — the coldest in the nation — in Crane Lake, Minn., as of Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service…”

  • Exodus2011

    oh boy – the global warming ‘true believers’ and their media enablers are such SCAM ARTISTS

    but more and more Americans are seeing satellite pics like this and are drawing their own conclusions … DEO GRATIAS

  • Jaels_Song

    They’ve perfected the lie. Now Global Warming is ANYTHING!

  • BCee

    Would this be anything like the ‘polarity vortex’ between the media and American citizens?

  • maynardb50

    I create a vortex in my toilet each time I flush it.

    • FreeManWalking

      That is known as an 0b0 vortex. Instead of chills, it causes thrills to run up some MSM personality’s legs.


    …this is why I love EL RUSHBO, Keep On Keeping On Rush,

    a must listen .” (period)

  • WordsFailMe

    The polar vortex is a penomenon of any planet with an atmosphere that rotates in a generally regular fashion. Sometimes it’s strong, sometimes weak; sometimed it move and sometime it stays in one place. Our Northern Hemis shere polar vortext is strong now and is siimply pushing cold air south.

    When you think about it, the polar vortex has dome more to reduce black on black child murder in Chicago than Ron Emmanuel, Jesse Jackass’s- son and El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz combined.

    You are walking in a winter wonderland for now, Chitown, but don’t pack those funeral duds away too soon, spring is coming…

  • Dr. Strangelove

    I heard this yesterday and I’m surprised Rush didn’t point out how suspiciously like the “hole in the ozone layer” it is. Hey, what ever happened to that anyway? While not a conspiracy theorist, I found the timing of the ozone layer kerfuffle and the end of DuPont’s Freon patent rather suspicious.

    • Tom

      We don’t hear about the hole in the ozone layer because the international convention on CFCs solved the problem over a decade ago. Global warming is a separate problem. Learn to Google.

      • Dr. Strangelove

        Thanks for the reply. I’ll use the search feature on my laptop and look up “Google”. In the meantime, why don’t you Google satire.

        • Hiker275

          Funny. You look more like Samuel Clemens than Peter Sellers.

          • Dr. Strangelove

            Hats off to you, sir. You are the careful observer

  • jimmie smith

    I was reading somewhere that the earth wobbles more when it’s orbit fluxuates between circular and elliptical. This all happens over thousands of years. If we are currently in elliptical, it stands to reason we might just a bit colder rather than what we would be in a circular orbit…

  • Thomas Leo

    Back in my childhood days, we just called this winter, and we still had to go to school. As Pelosi would say, “embrace the suck”.

  • creeper

    OMG! It gets cold in the winter! Who knew?

  • open-minded

    Uh, the term Polar Vortex has been taught to meteorology student since at least 1959…do some research before posting comments that reveal your overall lack of intelligence.
