Polar Vortex These dramatic footage show impact of cold

A rare phenomenon is taking place in the states of Chicago, Minneapolis, Illinois and they are here to remind you the dangerous colours of climate change. Polar Vortex, the geographical phenomenon which have hit parts of the United States records a temperature even colder than Alaska and Antarctica. As temperatures heats up to two or three times more in the Arctic, many researchers believe that can lead to frigid temperatures in the continental U.S. From frozen noodles, hair, helmets, these ‘cold-wave’ of climate change have claimed at least 21 people alone this January. These images of Polar Vortex show why our planet has become so ‘cold’ because it is becoming dangerously ‘warm’:

You can literally freeze yourself during Polar Vortex. A University of lowa student was found apparently frozen to death on Wednesday; a 38-year-old woman found frozen in her home where the thermostat had malfunctioned in Milwaukee.
