What is the point of this article? Of course this dry winter doesn't conclusively prove global warming. Do you need to be a science nerd to understand that? Jesus Christ.
Furthermore, science has pointed us to a place where we understand that global warming does exist and it is probably our fault. The real questions are: how are we going to live on a warmer globe? What actions should we as a species take to alleviate the negative rammifications of global warming?
Global warming doesnt mean that the temperature will simply be a little warmer...it means severe weather phenomena such as increased snowfall in Alaska, or tornados in Massachusetts, or whatever story is increasingly painted on headlines. The phrase 'global warming' should not be taken so literally.
Let's have a conversation about that, not about whether global warming exists. Let's do the right thing and assume that it does.
