Global Warming in a Polar Vortex

With the Polar Vortex dominating the news and lives of wide swath of the country, the issue of Global Warming/Climate Change has come up again. The usual suspects are out saying the cold is proof that the planet is not warming, a confusuion, often politically motivated, of weather and climate. At this point the counter-argument that, in fact, weird weather is part of the changes wrought by the overall warming of the globe seems basic, but apparently still needs to be made over and over (and over).
