Stuff It! Limbaugh Attempts To Step On Science And Riles a Science Guy!

Whoops!
Rush Limbaugh raised eyebrows this week when he claimed that the polar vortex that swept the nation with record low temperatures this week was a phrase recently invented by liberals in order to advance a political agenda.
In a segment titled "Left Creates 'Polar Vortex' to Make You Think Winter is Caused by Global Warming," amateur scientist Limbaugh said
"Do you know what the polar vortex is? Have you ever heard of it? Well, they just created it for this week...Right on schedule, the media have to come up with a way to make it [the cold] sound like it's completely unprecedented, because they've got to find a way to attach this to the global warming agenda."
Last night Roker tweeted a photo of a 1959 American Meteorological Society text with a polar vortex definition in it:

For all the doubters who say the media "created" the Polar Vortex: From the 1959 AMS Glossary of Meteorology
If there were any doubt which doubters Roker had in mind, he dispelled it with his next tweet:

Rush Limbaugh claims the Polar Vortex is a creation of a left-wing, liberal media conspiracy. It's Meteorology 101. No political agenda

Check and mate
On the Today Show this morning, the NBC weatherman told Limbaugh to "stuff it":
"Let me tell you something.  We've never used the phrase 'global warming' or 'climate change' in conjunction with this... Okay?! So for all the doubters out there, STUFF IT."
