Cletus: "Now the reason it's getting colder is because it's
getting warmer. Makes sense now."Consider the quip about how, if
you have one foot in a bucket of ice water and the other in boiling water, on
average you're comfortable. Rising average global temperatures do not mean
that temperatures necessarily are rising uniformly everywhere, or even rising
everywhere (spatially or temporally). The article posits a plausible
geophysical mechanism to explain how higher temperatures in some places can
still result in localized extreme low temperatures elsewhere. One can only hope
this report puts a damper on the endless "How's that global warming
working for you?" jokes every time the snow flies.
Now the reason it's getting colder is because it's getting warmer.
Makes sense now.
