Sea-ice extent is at highest levels in recent years, and temperatures at the Pole have crashed to the lowest levels of the winter.

So much for global warming.

When a zonal pattern traps cold air at the Pole, Alarmists shift their attention further south and write about spring being early in certain places, calling it "unprecedented". However when these winter patterns fall apart they sometimes hurl blobs of very cold air south, and mild winters can end with wild storms, as was the case on March 11-15, 1888.
