Default Time Magazine Goes Both Ways On The Polar Vortex

And this is why the science on this is NOT settled...

Time Magazine Goes Both Ways On The Polar Vortex: ‘In 1974, Time Mag blamed the cold polar vortex on global cooling’ — In 2014: ‘Time Magazine blames the cold polar vortex on global warming’

Quote:
In 1974, Time Magazine blamed the cold polar vortex on global cooling.

Quote:
'Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds —the so-called circumpolar vortex—that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.'
Forty years later, Time Magazine blames the cold polar vortex on global warming

Quote:
'But not only does the cold spell not disprove climate change, it may well be that global warming could be making the occasional bout of extreme cold weather in the U.S. even more likely. Right now much of the U.S. is in the grip of a polar vortex, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a whirlwind of extremely cold, extremely dense air that forms near the poles.'

HAHa I have heard something about polar vortex but not in depth. Is it like the ice capades? :-)

Thank f-ck science hasn't evolved and our knowledge of earth's climate and man's and nature's effects haven't progressed in the last 40 years.

But that's the point...

Who says it's ever 100% after 10 years?...50 years?...100?...200?...

For some strange (as in "retarded) reason, the science snobs are saying "We were SURE back in the 70s, but then we found we were wrong...NOW we're 100% sure."...

My question is "How will you know?...Whose to say the NEXT 40 years doesn't disprove everything you're saying NOW like now disproves everything you were saying THEN?"...
