No, It’s Still Probably Happening

22 December 2008

I was listening to the Bob Davis show on AM1500 the other day, and he brought up an argument that I have heard bandied around in Minnesota before, especially as we battle these unseasonably cold temperatures: How can we think that global warming is happening when it is so darn cold outside? It seems a bit ridiculous to talk about the temperature of the earth increasing when it’s negative 30 with windchill and our car windows won’t roll down because they’re frozen (true story).

Well, I hate to say it, but one winter of cold weather does not undo the past thirteen hottest years in recorded history.  In fact, there’s only a one in 10,000 chance that global warming is NOT the cause of the heat records of the past few decades.  The big picture counts for this one.  So bundle up and take the Minnesota Energy Challenge to reduce your carbon emissions!
