As you should. Arctic temperatures have been elevated by 2-14 degC since December 20, 2012. Warm fronts move into the Arctic, flushing Arctic cold & weather to the south.
Ah! Global Warming creates cold temperatures, I get it, liberal!!

Melted ice does not create lower temperatures, Science 101.

As a matter of fact, changes induced by melting ice have changed jet stream patterns, making it very cold on the US east coast now, but very warm in Anchorage, AK.

Weather will be more extreme. This means not just more severe & longer heat waves & droughts, it may mean increased storm activity, & yes - some places get cooler.

It's been hypothesized for a long time that if the Greenland ice sheet breaks up quickly, the large quantity of cold fresh water will shut down (or at least reduce) the thermohaline circulation, of which the Gulf Stream is a part. This would mean a much colder northwestern Europe, & perhaps more precipitation there.

Not good.

So yes, AGW/CC can DEFINITELY cause cooling in some places, & possibly more extreme cooling.

And you think topix doesn’t know what you publish? Attacks on me won't delete or erase what you are and what you do. You should stop making an ASSumption of your---self before you know the facts. Do contact topix to satisfy your accusations of the reprint BS your posting of what I said. You are a dumbASSumption of your---self again

Good question.

The Arctic has been warming about twice as fast as the rest of the Northern Hemisphere. Studies are showing its changing the course of the jet stream, which steers weather systems from west to east, with “wavier” patterns – meaning steeper troughs and higher ridges that allow for cold fronts to come down from the north.
Arctic Warming is Altering Weather Patterns, Study Shows

A "study, by Jennifer Francis of Rutgers University and Stephen Vavrus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, ties rapid Arctic climate change to high-impact, extreme weather events in the U.S. and Europe.

The study shows that by changing the temperature balance between the Arctic and mid-latitudes, rapid Arctic warming is altering the course of the jet stream, which steers weather systems from west to east around the hemisphere. The Arctic has been warming about twice as fast as the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, due to a combination of human emissions of greenhouse gases and unique feedbacks built into the Arctic climate system.

The jet stream, the study says, is becoming "wavier," with steeper troughs and higher ridges. Weather systems are progressing more slowly, raising the chances for long-duration extreme events, like droughts, floods, and heat waves.

"[The] tendency for weather to hang around longer is going to favor extreme weather conditions that are related to persistent weather patterns," said Francis, the study's lead author.

According to the study, Arctic climate change may increase the odds that such high-impact, blocking weather patterns will occur. The study cites examples of other patterns that led to extreme events that also may bear Arctic fingerprints, including the 2011 Texas drought and heat wave, which cost the state's agricultural sector a staggering $7.62 billion - making it the most expensive one-year drought in that state's history.

In addition, the study also mentions jet stream configurations that led to heavy snows in the Northeast and Europe during recent winters. Such events are also "consistent" with the study's findings, according to the paper.

The reasons why the Arctic is heating up so quickly, a phenomenon known as "Arctic amplification," has to do with factors that are unique to the Arctic environment, involving feedbacks between sea ice, snow, water vapor, and clouds. As the area warms in response to manmade greenhouse gases, melting ice and snow allow exposed land and water to absorb more of the Sun's heat, which melts more ice and snow, and so on. A relatively small amount of initial warming can be greatly magnified in the Far North.

The temperature contrast between the frigid Arctic and the milder mid-latitudes is what drives the powerful jet stream winds, which are so important for determining day-to-day weather conditions.

In addition to making the jet stream have more pronounced north/south swings, the reduced temperature gradient between northern and southern areas is causing the westerly component of upper-level winds to slow.

The westerly component of upper-level winds during the fall has weakened by about 14 percent since 1979, the study found.

A slight slowdown in the jet stream may not sound like a big deal. After all, jet stream winds have been clocked at upwards of 200 mph. But it turns out that slowing of the jet stream influences its shape and the motion of individual storm systems.

Weaker westerly winds causes the big north/south swings in the jet stream to move more slowly from west to east, making weather conditions in a given location more persistent than they used to be.

In other words, rapid Arctic warming is expected to exert a growing influence on the weather far beyond the Arctic Circle, for many years to come. "

And?

From a liberal organization!!!

Let's tax everyone for more power and control!!!

Why did Al Gore sold station to oil burning Muslims? Because you are a liberal easy to fool!!

Some places get colder others hitters, there is a balance in nature you Liberas want to ignore.

You only look at the heating places and totally ignore the colder places, and your fraudulent emails confirm such behavior.

The Scientist who only look at the warming admit, many secretly, that is is NOT caused by men!!! But they need the grant money coming!!!

You claim humans cause more Global Warming than a volcanic eruption and you are scientifically WRONG, embarrassingly wrong and stupidly wrong, ignorantly wrong and factually wrong!!!
