Global warming strikes the United States
- Some skeptics disagree with the claim that Minnesota is too hot right now. What they don't understand, however, is that no matter how cool it gets, cooling is actually a part of global warming. This is science, as explained by the Associated Press:
"Mother Nature, of course, is oblivious to the federal government's machinations. Ironically, 2008 is on pace to be a slightly cooler year in a steadily rising temperature trend line. Experts say it's thanks to a La Nina weather variation. While skeptics are already using it as evidence of some kind of cooling trend, it actually illustrates how fast the world is warming."
