well
for all of you global warming skeptics out there, check out the unseasonable weather in the northwest.
anybody heading out there this summer will really have to check the flows beforehand...
All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.

Wouldn't that more appropriately be called Montana and Washington localized warming, perhaps even Montana and Washington localized and seasonal warming? I mean, global means global. Just saying...

We've had a lot of global cooling going on in Central Pennsylvania this past year. We'll see if it's enough to persuade all the climatologists at Penn State to recant.

Shawn,

Apart from whether it should have been characterized as local, regional, or global, I believe Tony's observation was tongue-in-cheek, as we (in WA, at least) have been suffering through an unseasonably "cold" spell of late.

Of course, global warming may also be somewhat of a misnomer, as even though the average temperature of the planet may increase, that doesn't necessarily mean the average temperature of every location on the planet will increase.

I might have been tempted in the past to say this was just my two cents worth, but given the rate on inflation, it may be actually worth as much as a nickel by now. Or not.

Ah, I didn't catch the irony in his statement. I grow tired of people looking at today's weather for their particular locale and saying either, "See, it's warming!" or "See, it's not warming!"

My apologies, Gutcutter.
