Meteorologist Bastardi: 'Global Warming' Not Causing Polar Chill

Wednesday, 08 Jan 2014 04:05 PM

By Bill Hoffmann

Don't believe those who say the bone-chilling weather sweeping the nation is related to "global warming," says Joe Bastardi, meteorologist and chief forecaster for WeatherBell Analytics.

"All of this is part of natural processes of the ocean," Bastardi told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"The Pacific Ocean went into its warm cycle in the late '70s, stayed warm until about 2007. Since it flipped into the colder cycle, you've seen the Earth's temperature gradually break down a little bit . . . over the last four years."

Story continues below video.



Bastardi says the deadly cold snap we're experiencing should be an alarm signal to the world.

"Eventually, what happens is we go back to the '60s and '70s -- once the Atlantic cools [and] we're out of the big hurricane cycle," he said.

"Then you'll start seeing winters like we had in the '60s and '70s and . . . I don't think our economy or our electric grid would handle those kind of consistently cold winters."
