I cannot believe the stupidity on this site - it is SUMMER in the southern hemisphere right now, and therefor WINTER in the northern hemisphere.
If you cannot even comprehend this basic fact of science you are in no way qualified to speak about far more complex climate patterns and trends.
I hope this had already been pointed out, or you are being sarcastic because this is truly a scary and shocking level of intelligence.

Its SUMMER time in the South Pole, this is why.
UK News stated yesterday that parts of England are also colder than the South Pole. But, sure...just like Australia, it is the SUMMER time in the South Pole.
South Pole gets warmer this time of year.
UK gets colder this time of year.
Its all normal.
Temperature fluctuation? Or just normality?

You guys should all move to sunny Adelaide, South Australia to take the chill out of your bones ... it's 5:30pm and the temp has started to drop ... it's currently dropped from 41c earlier in the day, down to 40c

Last night, it was 11 degrees here in the DFW region with a windchill of 5. This is ridiculous cold for Texas.

I'm way up in Canada and it's way warmer than down the states right now, this has been our warmest winter on record. Its sitting at about 0C/32F right now at it's early morning. I've lived here nearly 20 years and we've never had no snow in January. It's weird as hell wearing a spring jacket when it should be ball freezing cold with 6 feet of snow.

Good thing global warming made snow and cold winters things of the past.
Good thing this is exactly what will happen with global warming/climate change. Your summers will be hotter and your winters get colder but your overall average for the year will continue to rise.
The added melt off from glaciers will mix with the currents and mess up the way the water flows and goes from cold to warm. This will have a major change to the weather and plunge us into a mini ice age as we see average temps drop.
