MSNBC: Somehow Winter Survived Global Warming
ds off this Sunday with a photo montage of serious winter weather from Pacific to Maine.
To the left, all snow, all winter weather is “freak." To those of us with memories longer than our . . . privates . . . and a sense of history that exceeds our senses of fashion, winters are beginning to look a like winters past.
The temperature was 7 when I got up this morning. I used to play hockey outside at Steinberg every Sunday in temperatures colder than this.
Before you scream that weather != climate: I get it. But climate is the ∑ of weather, is it not? And when we have year after year of decreasing average temperature, increasing average snowfall, and growing glaciers, we have a climate trend of cold.
I’d like to know what James Hansen is doing to keep warming these day. Perhaps he’s discharging CO2 fire extinguishers in his living room.
