The polar vortex is "a hoax" perpetuated by the liberal media to further its agenda of climate change and global warming, Rush Limbaugh told listeners Monday.

According to the radio show's transcript, Limbaugh said that "the left, the media, everybody" is using the Arctic cold front in the Midwest and Northeast as a ploy to lie to the public, Politico first reported.

"[We] are having a record-breaking cold snap in many parts of the country, and right on schedule, the media have to come up with a way to make it sound like it's completely unprecedented," the conservative talker said, "because they've got to find a way to attach this to the global-warming agenda, and they have. It's called the polar vortex. The dreaded polar vortex.

"If you've been watching television, they've created a graphic, all the networks have, and it basically consists of a view of the planet if you are right above the North Pole," Limbaugh said.

"They put this big purple blob, or blue blob or red blob, depending on the network you're looking at, over the entire North Pole, and they call that the polar vortex. It actually sounds like a crappy science-fiction movie to me, but anyway, that's what they're calling it."
