A very Merry Christmas to all the Orthodox believers out there.
A polar vortex is "is a persistent, large-scale cyclone located near one or both of a planet’s geographical poles." Any attempt to appear what is a natural phenomenon on "global warming" can be described as "unsupported conjecture" as "Many atmospheric general circulation models (GCMs) and chemistry–climate models (CCMs) are not able to reproduce the observed polar stratospheric winds in simulations of the late 20th century".

They already have their fifteen minutes of fame but putting them in general population or, let's say, a Russian holding tank, may be a very grim deterrent from approaching a world leader:
No criminal charges will be laid against two protesters who managed to skirt the prime minister's security by hopping onto a stage with Stephen Harper, Vancouver police say.Sean Devlin and Shireen Soofi, two known climate change activists, succeeded in getting past the prime minister's security detail on Monday and onto the stage where Harper was sitting to protest his government's environmental policies.
"After consultation with the RCMP, charges will not be laid in relation to yesterday’s incident involving Prime Minister Harper," Randy Finchman, a media relations officer for the Vancouver police told CBC News in an email on Tuesday.
One of the protesters told CBC News on Monday he wore an apron to pass himself off as wait staff at the hotel where the event was being held.
Can one imagine how an interrogation of these social retards would go? How much sanctimony and sputtering can one detective endure before he decides to leave them in a cell and forgetting about them over the week-end?
Let's put it another way: the Taliban did send a ten year old girl to her possible explosive death:
The Taliban denied Tuesday that they dispatched a 10-year-old girl to carry out a suicide attack against Afghan police, a day after the girl said her brother wrapped her in an explosives-packed vest but that she refused to blow herself up at a checkpoint in Helmand province.
Border police in the southern Afghan province arrested the girl's father, Abdul Ghfar, and were searching for the brother, a police commander said. The girl, who was detained Monday and identified herself only as Spozhmai, said her brother is a Taliban commander.
It's not like they and others haven't done that before.

Muslim converts engage in terrorism at a higher rate than Muslims. It's gotten so bad that converting to Islam is almost a form of suicide. - See more at: http://sultanknish.blogspot.ca/2014/01/the-muslim-suicide-convert.html#sthash.Kqe3u49j.vKPcGIUh.dpuf
Muslim converts engage in terrorism at a higher rate than Muslims. It's gotten so bad that converting to Islam is almost a form of suicide. …A convert to Islam is lowest on the totem pole because he has no family group. In a tribal society, not having a family connection makes you an outsider and expendable. A Muslim who Jihads himself to death creates a hole in the tribal network of arranged cousin marriages, illegal business arrangements and other extended family support structures. A Muslim convert was never part of the network unless he married into it. And even then he can easily be unplugged because he has no common ancestry with them.
In a Muslim country, he can be killed without having to pay blood price. In a Western country, he can be sent off to die without the "tribe" of Pakistanis or Egyptians who built the mosques and hired the Imams who converted him and convinced him to kill non-Muslims being affected by his death.
He is expendable.
The circus that Dennis Rodman and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un serves as quite the distraction from the starving masses and nuclear weapons:
In an exclusive satellite interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rodman reacts angrily — and bizarrely — when questioned about anything related to why he's there, whether he should be there in the first place, and if he'll use the opportunity to stand up for imprisoned American citizen Kenneth Bae, who was sentenced to 15 years of hard labour on vague charges.
Rodman, who calls his frequent visits to the isolated communist country "basketball diplomacy" — and who previously called Kim "a friend for life" — jabs his finger at the camera, arguing that Cuomo wouldn't be asking him to intervene in the Bae case if he understood "what Kenneth Bae did."
"Do you understand what he did in this country?"
"What did he do?" Cuomo asks.
Rodman retorts: "You tell me."
Then Rodman loses it, ranting on and on — sometimes incoherently — about the sacrifice his team made to visit the country and claiming that their presence will eventually "open doors."
"One day, one day, this door is going to open because these 10 guys here, all of us, Christie, Vin, Dennis, Charles ... I mean everybody here, if we could open the door just a little bit for people to come here and do one thing."
After a couple minutes of screaming at Cuomo, Rodman is interrupted by teammate Charles Smith, who calmly explains the team's intentionally non-political stance in the country.
Revoke Rodman's passport and leave his crazy @$$ there.
And now, make yourself some warming food this January. Get your core temperature back up.
