It just snowed all over the northeastern United States. And it's cold. Really, really cold.

That's because it's winter.

Climate change deniers have been having a field day since early January's polar vortex, during which their contribution to public discourse was similar to Congressman John Fleming's tweet which read, "Global warming isn't so warm these days."
