    Dangerously Cold Record Low Temps

    To Hit Chicago, Midwest.

    It could be warmer above the Arctic Circle than in Chicago by Wednesday, with Bloomberg reporting that temperatures are forecast to fall in the Windy City to 20-to-25 degrees below zero Fahrenheit (minus-29 to minus-32 Celsius).
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

    stepped outside last night for about twenty seconds, to start the grill and throw a frozen burger on

    ambient temp was -6, winds gusting to 40, windchill horrible - 20 seconds and all my exposed skin froze

    when i went back out in five minutes to check the burger, bundled up - the wind was gone and it felt fine


    take-away - no exposed skin and stay out of the wind

    we're forecast to be down around zero for the next couple days, but that's normal for the frozen north - the homeless in Chicago are going to suffer

    They're stealing coats off people in the streets in Chicago I heard, and the wind chill is -60.

    I suppose this is the result of global warming....the pendulum swing or something?

    I live in south central Missouri along I-44. It's supposed to get down to single digits, just above 0 this morning.

    Weather isn't climate. A warmer (and therefore more active) atmosphere may produce more dramatic weather, but you can't point to a particular case and say "Aha! Global warming!"

    Ironically, it is warmer temperatures that do this:
    The exact details of how this works are complex, but the explanation is simple: warmer land temperatures, particularly in northern North America and northern Eurasia, allow more heat to be transported into the Arctic stratosphere. A warmer Earth makes sudden stratospheric warming events more likely and more frequent. And those events destabilize the polar vortex, bring cold air down into the mid-latitudes, and cause the extreme weather we're experiencing right now.

    But as I said, this can happen even without global temperatures going up. And has happened in the past when it was relatively cooler.

    This polar vortex is from global warming.
    And these are not the two droids you’re looking for.

    If this global warming keeps going, we will end up in another ice age.
