If you want an explanation for the polar vortex, don’t expect a reasonable answer from the White House.
“Discussions about the science of weather extremes are heating up,” according to the White House website, which added the current cold spell gripping much of the country is a result of a warmer world.
“If you’ve been hearing that extreme cold spells, like the one that we’re having in the United States now, disprove global warming, don’t believe it,” President Obama’s science and technology advisor, Dr. John Holdren, said in a video on the website. “No single weather episode can either prove or disprove global climate change.”
The temperature difference between the “far north” and the United States is causing the polar vortex, Holdren said.
“A growing body of evidence suggests that the kind of extreme cold being experienced by much of the United States as we speak is a pattern we can expect to see with increasing frequency as global warming continues,” he said.
As temperatures rise, the vortex becomes “wavier,” the science advisor said. How’s that for a scientific term?
“I believe the odds are that we can expect, as a result of global warming, to see more of this pattern of extreme cold,” Holdren said.
