Record Lows

While I try not to spend to much time on Global Warming issues here, since they are neither Society nor Money, I do find it interesting from a social point of view that when the predictions were for the hottest summer on record back in June and July, it was all over the headlines, but now that the records are being broken in the other direction, there is much less noise being made. I suspect that some of the blame can be attributed to money, since no one gets a grant to study the possibility that nothing really important is happening. In addition, one must always beware of using an anecdote to prove a universal. Neither record highs nor lows on a local level really signify anything on a global scale. As John Brignell likes to say, it is the nature of records to be broken.
