Why a warmer arctic makes for colder winters [video]
If you’ve got a friend or co-worker that doesn’t believe in global warming because “we’re still having a really cold winter,” make them watch this video. Dr. Heidi Cullen, formerly of The Weather Channel (and now CEO of Climate Central) will set them straight. She explains clearly and concisely why the warmer arctic can unleash the bitter cold we’ve been feeling in North America and northern Europe.
Note: Dr. Cullen only explains the arctic paradox, and mentions this is an ongoing area of research.
