Bizarro Weather

RE wrote an interesting piece on the Doomstead Diner, Springtime in Alaska, about the bizarro weather conditions globally. While they are seeing an unprecedented melt in Alaska, extreme drought in California, and 120F temps across Australia, 30 of the last 50 days in Minneapolis have seen temps below 0. It is often very cold, and very windy. Like today, sun shining, temps @ 21 dropping to -18, with winds like you see in the spring and fall; -20, they are saying again, for Monday. Might not see temps above 0 before Wednesday. I wonder about my fruit trees and grape vines.

There is a reason climate change denial is getting louder.

I posted this on a Huffpost thread about Midwestern cold:

"This is the fourth blast of arctic air this winter, in Minneapolis. 30 of the last 50 days have seen temps below 0. Unprecedented.

They deleted it.

I posted it a third time, and they published it after 18 minutes, when it appeared four pages down the thread. LOL.
