Climate Alarmists Invent New Weather Phenomenon: ‘Frost Quakes’

'It can feel like an earthquake. You can feel a little shake from it...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Climate alarmists appear to have invented a new weather phenomenon, “frost quakes,” to describe the ground freezing quickly when temperatures shift drastically, as reported by Legal Insurrection.

Per Sarah Thunberg, a meteorologist with CBS, the frost quakes are something like localized earthquakes.

“It can feel like an earthquake,” she said ahead of a new Northeastern polar vortex passing through upper New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. “You can feel a little shake from it.”

NBC also got in on the fear-mongering, claiming that climate change causes temperature fluctuations, which may lead to frost quakes.

“There is a climate connection to frost quakes,” they wrote.

“A 2016 study revealed that frost quakes could become more frequent in a warming climate,” they continued. “This is because as winters continue to warm (winters are the fastest warming season), the ground remains thawed for longer with a higher prevalence of liquid water in the soil.”

Yahoo! News also reported that “frost quakes could become more frequent in a warming climate.”

Not to be outdone by corporate media shills, the Bangor Daily News interviewed Sean Birkel, a climatologist at the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, who said the world’s surfeit of cow flatulence and gas stoves may soon turn New England into a regular San Andreas as the new ground-zero for frost quakes.

“Maine winters are warming and as part of a changing climate, we are seeing a tendency for more extreme weather events,” Birkel said. “In winter this can mean patterns that bring extreme cold followed by extreme warmth.”

The climate change scientist claimed ocean temperatures have increased the likelihood of “frost quakes,” despite admitting to having no data to back up his assertion.

“One of the factors is a warming ocean surface that increases evaporation and overall more moisture entering the atmosphere,” Birkel said. “That means there is more moisture available for precipitation and that is, in part, fueling more rainfall.”
