Is what's happening with the polar vortex the same thing scientists talked about 10 yrs ago and the Gulf Stream Conveyor belt and shutting it down because of too much regular water mixing with salt water and stopping the Conveyor belt?

I'm not sure, since your question runs on a bit. However, I read that Al Roker felt it necessary to point out that the term "polar vortex" had been in use for at least 50 years, and therefore is not a propaganda term invented by climate scientists to scare people. The polar vortex by itself is not a shutdown of the Gulf Stream, nor would it cause such a shutdown so far as I know. It might even delay it, by cooling Greenland.

Hurricanes, typhoons and polar vortices are all just types of cyclones. Hurricanes occur in the north Atlantic, typhoons in the north Pacific and polar vortices are centered in the Arctic.

From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
