    So the greenies in Oslo think that the US had a “mild winter.” Out of touch, much? Just how do you give me them credibility on this issue when they think this?

    • The mild winter in question was that of 2012-2013, not 2013-2014.”The 2012-2013 winter (December, January, February) was significantly cooler than the winter of 2011-2012. But don’t be misled. This past winter was still well above average in contrast to longterm records. It ranked as the 20th warmest winter recorded since record-keeping began.” From http://earthsky.org/earth/recap-of-the-2012-2013-u-s-winter

        Tell that to my home heating bills.

        • The figures that I provided above are national averages. They say nothing about conditions in a particular place, such as your backyard. Your home heating bills are irrelevant. Data, not personal anecdotes, are what matter in such discussions.

    Europe is not green; it’s pink. Any problem to which socialism is the sole possible solution is misconstrued.
