Global Warming? Record Breaking Cold Blankets United States

Cold air pushes east thru Wednesday with a reinforcing shot of Arctic air with origin from the North Pole & Siberia to arrive on Thursday in the Great Lakes. Any relief is is 5-6 days away as Chicago, Minneapolis, and Detroit will struggle to rise above freezing until Saturday.
Climate has always changed, and it’s cyclical. Although there are those who believe there has been a change in the jet stream due to a slowing, or stopping of the Gulf Stream Loop that took place as a result of Corexit being used to hide a majority of the gulf oil spill.
