What's interesting is, while researching this post, I found similar articles from 2008 and 2009. I also found articles claiming the freeze is actually a result of global warming.
Um, sorry, you can't have it both ways. The above reasoning reflects the shift from claims of global warming to the somewhat more believable claims of "climate change". Of course the climate is changing, that's what the weather does. Duh!
There have been an estimated 5 other global warmings - all before Man appeared on the planet. All immediately following the 5 "Ice Ages".
Want to read some truly funny stuff? Google "global warming 2012". Hmmm... it's 2010 but none of those things seem to be happening, in fact I'd welcome some global warming right about now. How about you? ;)
