One town’s weather is not the same as global climate.
It’s easy to lose track of the difference because as humans we pay more attention to what we see with our own eyes and pay less attention to what we don’t see. It’s even easier to lose track of the difference between local weather and […]
Marc Morano of the Exxon-funded and Chevron-funded website Climate Depot declared in April 2015 that “There is no global warming crisis! … now going on almost two decades of no global warming.” Echoing the same theme, Nancy J.

While Bernard Sanders speaks strongly on the issue of climate change, the Republicans and Hillary Clinton pretend the issue doesn’t exist as our atmosphere reaches a global CO2 average of 400 ppm for the first time in recorded history. […]

In a February 12 2015 letter to the editor of New York State’s North Country Now, an anonymous reader asks, “What Global Warming? Whatever happened to global warming? I feel short changed!”
You see, it’s been cold lately. How could that be if we’re experiencing global warming?
