  • ‘Polar Vortex’ That Caused Record Cold Is Related To Solar Activity, Not Man-Made CO2

    • The Hockey Schtick

    An analysis by meteorologist Guido Guidi at the Italian Climate Monitor site debunks claims that the US record cold was caused by man-made global warming. The analysis shows there has been no overall trend in the jet stream zonal velocity over the past 66 years, which in turn controls the polar vortex. At least 3 published papers confirm […]
