Science Writer Points out What We're All Thinking About Climate Change Experts

What’s going on?

It’s not just you – this winter has been unusually frigid. The low temperatures are making some climate change experts nervous because they kind of contradict the whole idea that the planet is warming.

How cold are we talking?

This winter has been so cold that in some cases, it’s turned deadly. The Associated Press has reported at least 12 deaths from the extreme cold. Some Georgia residents recently saw icicles for the first time, and Florida State University closed its Tallahassee campus because of the severe cold threat.

What’s the connection to climate change?

Australian science writer Joanne Nova recently wrote a tongue-in-cheek article pointing out that to climate change advocates, “this extreme cold is just weather, but all heat waves are climate change.” Why do global warming experts point to every heat wave as evidence while trying to ignore unusually cold winters that don’t fit their argument?

“Why don't you ever say [it’s just weather] about a heat wave?” Pat asked on today’s show while filling in for Glenn. He compared it to last year when people tried to say Hurricanes Harvey and Irma were evidence of climate change, ignoring the previous hurricane-free 12 years.

PAT: You know, we were just talking about the cold that has gripped about 90 percent of the country. In fact, 90 percent on New Year's Day -- 90 percent of the nation didn't get to the freezing level, didn't get to 32. That is crazy.

JEFFY: That sure is.

PAT: That, of course, that means global warming to the global warming scientists. An Australian science writer has just -- she wrote this article and she noticed what I think many of us have noticed for years now. She said, for the radical climate crowd, extreme cold is just weather. But all heat we've seen are climate change. Isn't that the truth?

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: While heat waves and extreme weather events are routinely pointed to as indications of global warming trends, the coldest weather in over a century that we're having right now, eh, that's the natural variability of the weather cycle. Yeah, things change. Of course, it's going to get cold sometimes. That's what we tell you about the heat. Why don't you ever say that about a heat wave?

Well, yeah, that happens. It always happens. We've always had heat waves. It's why some of the records we have are from 1932. But every single -- like you mentioned, we used to be told all the time, oh, don't confuse weather with climate. Because you can't do that. So any weather-related event like a storm or a heat wave, that's just one day or a couple of day cycle thing. But climate is over a period of time.

Then all of a sudden every single heat wave that happened, see. Science. It's global warming. Every hurricane that happened. See, that's global warming.

JEFFY: There it is. There it is.

PAT: Then they fell silent during the 12 years of no hurricanes hitting the US mainland.

And then all of a sudden, a few do. And, of course, that's global warming.

Just unreal.

Jason Whitlock: Here’s why black men & black Americans relate to Donald Trump

Black celebrities like Kanye West & Ice Cube aren't alone. In fact, sportswriter Jason Whitlock says it shouldn't be a surprise that more and more black men are supporting Donald Trump. He says that unlike President Obama, Trump actually "has a record" of helping black Americans. And, because he's an alpha male, Whitlock says the president's fearlessness is something black men relate to. Whitlock explains why Trump nearly convinced him to register to vote, and he describes how his long-time Democratic mother reacted when she experienced a softer side to the president.

Megyn Kelly: Media coverage of President Trump is ‘DISGUSTING’

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Bill O’Reilly: 'Be cautioned' if you think Hunter Biden story is enough to nail Joe

Bill O'Reilly is back! He joins Glenn to discuss the second — and last — presidential debate of the campaign season and he comments on whether or not Trump did enough to convince the average, uninformed voter of Joe's blatant corruption overseas. O'Reilly explains the origin of the Democrat narrative on Russian interference, why moderator Kristen Welker tried to stay off the Ukraine topic, and whether or not he believes Joe will be taken down by stories that mostly center on his son, Hunter.
