In the freezing foothills of Montana, a distinctly bitter blast of revolution hangs in the air. And while the residents of the icy city of Missoula can stave off the -10C chill with thermals and fires, there may be no easy remedy for the wintry snap's repercussions. The temperature has shattered a 36-year record. Further into the heartlands of America, the city of Billings registered -12C on Sunday, breaking the 1959 barrier of -5C
French President Nicolas Sarkozy has announced plans for a new carbon tax aimed at combating global warming. The tax will be introduced next year and will cover the use of oil, gas and coal, he said.

When the current in the oceans are disrupted the earth can slip into an ICE AGE TO REGENERATE FROM THE GLOBAL WARMING NATURALLY.
Weather refers, generally, to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereas climate is the term for the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time

I haven't had a chance to read the article fully, but "Global warming" ceased to be the descriptive for this phenonemon a long time ago, as it is misleading.
In a nutshell, "Climate Change" will result, if correct, in a situation akin to what you saw on the film "Day After Tomorrow", although on a much slower scale of course. The melting ice will desalinate the Sea, disrupt the currents and cause massive cooling in the Northern Hemisphere.
Speaking in London during an event to showcase the findings of the extensive Catlin Arctic Survey, Professor Wadhams said the survey’s data supports the consensus view that “the Arctic will be ice-free in summer within about 20 years, and that much of the decrease will be happening within 10 years.”
He also noted that the diminishing ice coverage will result in the Arctic region soon being an open sea during the summer months, leaving it open to providing short-term benefits such as improved shipping opportunities and easier access to oil and gas reserves.
