In response to Mr. Odom's observatons that global warming doesn't add up I will point out that the examples he used: 1. Currently colder in parts of the U.S, than the north pole. 2. It's colder in Winnipeg, Canada than it is on the surface of the Planet Mars. 3. A ship is stuck on Antarctica.
This is a direct result of global warming. The Polar Vortex that plunged our temps last week in Franklin was a direct result of open polar waters that were once ice-capped. Water warms in the sun and water evaporates. This evaporation was such as to disturb this vortex of 100+ mph winds that usually just swirl at the north pole. Once this vortex was weakend by the evaportation of ocean water it dispersed southward like a spinning top out of control. What caused the ice caps to melt? Global warming.
