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.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
