Climate change makes the Polar Vortex even worse!

In the Midwest from the US the temperatures will drop till -46C or lower. Warming shelters are open and officials fear that many people who live on the streets will not survive. The current blast of Artic air from the Polar Vortex brought temperatures to a dangerous low. Many schools are closed in the Midwest area as well as more than 1000 flights are canceled. Snow has fallen as much as 60 cm to 1.80 m in Illinois. In some area people got killed already by the extreme cold.

The Polar Vortex going more south of the US

Normaly the Polar Vortex stays around the North Pole but now it has going down all the way to the south of the United States.
Recently 72% of polled Americans say that climate change is important to them outnumbering them who don’t believe in climate change by five to one. Climate change used to be something of the future but is hitting people, the world now hard. It is here and now and we have to learn to adapt to it and find ways to decrease our global footprint.

Climate change reduces the amount of ice in the Artic Sea

The term Polar Vortex is nothing new. It appeared already in 1853 in an article written by E. Littell’s, Living Age.

It is a large area of cold air and low pressure surrounding the South and the North poles. The flow is counter clockwise which keeps normally the cold air close to the poles. In wintertime in the Northern Hemisphere the Vortex gets less stable and lowers more south. Because of climate change and global warming some investigators have suggested that this has reduced the Artic sea ice. For this reason Artic cold air can go more south. So the contradictory conclusion can be made that global warming can cause extreme cold.
