Brought to you by the Theory That Can Never Be Wrong — what’s the opposite of hot? A hole!
Next time you are feeling cold you will know you are in a hole instead. Stop digging.
Snow-covered beaches? Chilly iguanas? They are part of a mysterious ‘hole’ in global warming

… “according to a scientific study published this month, the Southeast’s colder winter weather is part of an isolated trend, linked to a more wavy pattern in the jet stream that crosses North America. That dipping jet stream allows artic air to plunge into the Southeast. Scientists call this colder weather a “hole” in overall global warming, or a “warming hole.”
“What we are looking at is an anomaly,” said Jonathan M. Winter, an assistant professor of geography at Dartmouth College and the principle investigator in the study. “The Southeast is the exception to the rule.”
Coming soon, new discoveries will show that the Little Ice Age was not cold, just part of an isolated trend that happened all over the world.
This particular modern hole is happening over SE USA. Obviously some of the cold air in the upper troposphere is falling down the hole.
The Southeast’s warming hole has been studied many times before, but the Dartmouth study in Geophysical Research Letters nails down some of its key features. The study concludes the trend started in the late 1950s, and is concentrated in six states — Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. Nearby states are also affected, such as east Texas, Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina.
Genius communication analysts with PhDs at Yale have done a study that shows no one (especially not truck drivers or farmers in redneck states) could doubt university experts except through random happenstance or because of cold weather.
Either because of coincidence or cooler climes, residents of these states tend to be relatively doubtful that global warming is happening and is largely caused by human activities, according to surveys compiled by Yale and George Mason universities.
This new discovery changes many things. During hole-y times when you might get goosebumps, don’t turn on the heater, get into the troposphere and fix the hole with some pink batts.
Next month, we’ll find out that every day is an anomaly.
