Wednesday morning, he made his case on the Today Show. Without calling out Limbaugh by name, as he did on Twitter the day before, Roker explained that “a lot of folks” have been saying there’s no such thing as a “polar vortex” and that it’s “some left-wing media conspiracy.” He said that meteorologists never use the terms “climate change” or “global warming” in conjunction with “polar vortex” and pulled up images of his college textbook to prove his point.
“O.K.? So for all the doubters out there, stuff it!” Roker shouted directly in Limbaugh’s direction.
