EDIT: Oops, Mr London, I meant to reply to Atzil321 here:
The predictions of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) were for more hurricanes and tropical storms, and that snow and freezing cold winters would
become a thing of the past. Only in the last couple of years have we seen cold weather and winter storms being blamed on warming. But this idea that
volatility, from warming, will produce regional cold and snow trends, is totally disconnected from the 'science' that had not, in any way whatsoever
predicted colder winters for anywhere on the globe. The closest thing to that idea was the understanding that warmer conditions could bring more
winter storms to places that were usually colder and calmer.
It seems that even key news editors and climate scientists are foggy on the diff between An Inconvenient Truth and The Day After Tomorrow, and have
taken the completely speculative leap of accounting for cold with warming, which did not exist in any of the AGW theories, models, and predictions.
So, it's understandable that people didn't notice the switcharoo there.
