And why is the Arctic weather system becoming unstable and dumping cold air over the top of the northern hemisphere?

Because, just as computer model(s) predicted, when an additional 50 molecules of CO2 becomes part of 1million molecules of air the climate gets really disrupted.

"motheaten" has many records yet to set to catch up with high temperature records in the next year. Its surprising, since toxic topix AGW deniers have been saying 2013 was cold & is sending Earth back into an ice age....... or its NOT surprising, since toxic topix AGW deniers have no science or mathematics.

Well, let's see.

The video I posted is from a major US university and contains the views of many leading scientists who study the Arctic.

And yours is by an anonymous nobody on the internet.

And you think that one is as valid as the other?

Give us the correct ones, then. It is obvious that socialistic programs are not necessarily detrimental to the human condition.

If global warming is real, I want to see politicians go to the poles during winter. When I see video of them sunbathing under the ozone hole on the North Pole in December, I'll believe. Did you know global warming's most significant effects happen deep under the seas, high in the atmosphere and at the poles? Or the effects are more significant at night, while you're sleeping.

Wake up.

You sound like one of us.

You're still an idiot, and I'm not; this is where we differ.

And your little lap dogs, too. Mothra, koolaid, Teener, dirtling, you are all useful idiots; no science, no argument.

I pity those in the dark.

The data was from the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

But I understand your point... warmists love credentials.

What a great observation.
Yes! Now that you mention it....
Global warming is decried for being primarily in unpopulated locations such as ...'possibly deep in the ocean','high in the atmosphere', and 'way up at the 'North Pole'.

How do we stop you remaining climate blame believers from telling our kids it "WILL BE" a crisis when science has agreed on nothing beyond just COULD BE a crisis and not one IPCC warning says; "inevitable" or "eventual". Science has not said it will so you can't either, although the kids are laughing now at this Reefer Madness of climate blame.

So you say: "You sound like one of us. You're still an idiot, and I'm not..."

There ARE other areaS where we differ. A FEW EXAMPLES:

The data are good.

It's the use they are put to that's suspect.

But what is the relevance of southern hemisphere sea ice to an Arctic sea ice effect?

Climate scientists know that very different things are happening to Arctic and Antarctic sea ice.

Deniers like to confound to two because the result looks like an excuse for denial.

The "blah, blah, blah" is the rational argument that justifies the names.

To which, as always, being an ignorant lout, you have no response.
