IS THERE ANYTHING MORE IRRITATING on a cold day than the wind throwing knives into your face as you walk outside?
It’s the people who sneer, “What happened to global warming?!”
They say this as if a single cold day disproves the entire field of climate science.
What these naysayers are of course confusing are the concepts of weather and climate.
While weather is what is happening outside on a particular day, climate is what happens outside over the course of years and decades and centuries.
