Days Until Bush Leaves Office = 5

Minus 18 Fahrenheit. That was the temperature when I left for work this morning. Add in a stiff breeze, and it felt like 37 below zero.


I have seen conservative blogs cite temperatures like these as the complete and unarguable refutation of the reality of global warming. Hogwash. I'm not about to conclude that climate change is a myth based on a cold snap. No, I am convinced that global warming is real. But I must confess that on days like today I am just ever so slightly inclined to think of it as our friend.

It's brr-tastic in Manhattan, too, but I can't imagine the pain you guys are experiencing. Stay warm and thawed as much as possible!

Oh, yes. Having a consistent trend of cooling for the last eight years doesn't meant that the earth isn't still heating up.

Nope, not at all.
