Global Warming: A Misnomer
But surely this warmness can't be global warming, because according to the weather expert cited in a NY Times article today, "Global warming is a misnomer." The message in the article was just because it is warm in NY, doesn't mean it's warm EVERYWHERE, so therefore it isn't global warming.
Okay. Whatever. The fact is this is one of the warmest winters on record (at least in NYC) and for the past six months Al Gore has been beating this whole global warming thing into our heads, it's inevitable that people are going to jump to conclusions.
But hey, if you're not down with the whole global warming thing, it looks like El Nino is back. So next time you pass one of those poor, confused, sprouting flowers or blossoming trees (or if you happen to pass a polar bear chilling on a melting ice shelf) just reassure them, it's not global warming, it's El Nino.
