It's cold here! where's Global Warming
when we need it?
The January 2010 temperatures were well below normal in most of
the USA, the British Isles, Scandinavia, and especially northern
Russia and Siberia.
But they were well above normal in most
of Europe, central Asia, North Africa, the Middle East, and Canada.
(Vancouver had its warmest January ever, so that snow had to be
trucked and helicoptered in for the winter Olympics.) This is an
instance of deceptive local variation. Globally, this January was
the second warmest on record.
