Why is the Texas cold a sign of an ice age?

Yes. I have posted more than once, extreme cold can still occur but occurs less than it used to mid last century. I illustrated this with a figure out of the BoM/CSIRO State of the Climate 2016 report and global temperature distributions show the same shift: more and hotter weather, fewer very cold events. Booby can’t seem to learn, does not want to learn.

When Texas was frozen temperatures in the Arctic were 28°C warmer than normal.

Weather is not proof of climate change. Texas is having a very atypical wet and cool Spring. I'm loving this weather. I'd love to get a 5-8 degree C drop in temperature year round, but I don't see that happening in my lifetime.
Nope, things will likely get warmer, apart from the odd bit of cold weather. The Jet Stream has weakened, slowed and become disorganised as the Arctic warms faster than anywhere else and so the temperatures either side of 45°N equalise. The same effect occurs here in the Southern Hemisphere but Antarctica is much further away and all ocean in between it and Southern Africa and Australia. We do get the odd burst of very cold air, incl one parcel a few years ago that hit our east coast and brought snow as far north as southern Queensland. We also get some extreme cold fronts bringing violent weather as does NZ which extends further south than does Tasmania.

The Texas cold is a sign of the ice age because troglodytes, cretins, Republicans and rednecks are forced out of their caves into the wild to seek fuel to warm their sorry arses.

Not to mention Texas' most famous features, steers, and queers.
