For the moment the top story at the Washington Post is about a climate disturbance in the North Pole. Specifically, a "freak storm" has pushed the temperature at the North Pole to 32-33 degrees, or about 50 degrees above normal. While this is the temperature range for the North Pole during the summer it shouldn't be happening during its winter. 

Tying what's happening in the North Pole to other weather developments the WP reports that a:
... powerful winter cyclone — the same storm that led to two tornado outbreaks in the United States and disastrous river flooding — has driven the North Pole to the freezing point this week, 50 degrees above average for this time of year.
To help drive home the severity of what's happening, the WP reported that the area around the North Pole was a "few degrees warmer than much of the Midwest."

As an aside, if you read some of the comments on the WP article it's clear that conservatives still don't get it.

If past is prelude we should be expecting conservatives to respond to this weather phenomena with something like this: "North Pole Weather Patterns Proof that God Hates Obama and Homos."

There's more, but you get the point.
