'Snowmageddon'

With everyone from Donald Trump to Rod Liddle questioning the validity of climate change on the back of the recent cold snap, Left Foot Forward offers a sober riposte.   

Think Progress also reports on the fact that whilst a ‘snowmageddon’ may have hit the east coast of the United States, things are very different elsewhere. On the Winter Olympics:

After the warmest January in Vancouver history, organizers moved more than 5,000 cubic meters of snow onto…helicopter and truck from nearby mountains. Some 750 workers are bringing in snow and building courses before competition starts on Saturday.

Of course this does not in itself prove that the planet is warming. It can be seen as an anomaly. A one-off. Much like ‘snowmageddon’. But when this is taken into account the Trump/Liddle climate change denial brigade begin to look slightly ridiculous.
