That is a fact.
I find its pretty hard to believe it's warming faster than the end of an ice age. If it was warming faster than that the both boles should be nearly ice free.

I thought that coin toss was a joke too. That dude literally flipped the coin, slapped it on his hand, looked at it, then flip it over as he picked it up and said heads. *laughing emoji*
Bruh that's messed up. Literally everybody has a camera recording as well.
Mr. Dictator even commented that after seeing the results that's why he was glad to sit out the first few caucuses. Sad.
Its looking like the political class does indeed live to a different set of rules.

It is a fact that that link is empty.

It is still autumn over here. Some plants that usually shed their leaves haven't.

We usually have a few days or months with ice and snow. A bunch of ice days each year; that's frost (air temp below freezing point) the whole day.
Two years back we had the first winter ever with no ice days. This year looks like it will be the second ever.

I had to scrape ice from the windscreen for the 3rd time this prolonged autumn. Instead of every day for weeks on end as it used to be, if I forgot the blanket. We had record warm days the past few days, but now a sudden dip. it didn't even really freeze, the side windows were wet.

The stoat was a common predator over here but is in danger of going extinct locally. It has a white winter coat, which color is totally unhelpful nowadays.

I have last mown the grass in December. It looks like I need to mow again soon. Come summer I can stop mowing as the grass will likely just die then.

We're at 52 degrees north.

I'm about 300 miles north of Mexico, got 8 inches of snow and it's 9 degrees F this morning.
I want my global warming back.

I live in New England, and our building code requires that we have foundation footings at least 4 feet below grade. This winter, the ground has been NOT frozen about as long as it has been frozen - so the frost line has been just a few inches, and for only about half the winter.

This is a huge difference from what it used to be, just a few decades ago.

The ice caps ARE melting very quickly. Glaciers all over the world - virtually ALL of them - are melting very quickly.

Winter is still a season - but it has changed very quickly.
