It is amazing that in this era of mass communication there are people who still confuse weather with climate change or global warming. Whether it be temperature, hurricanes, snowstorms, rain, etc., these are local conditions described as “weather” for your particular area. They fluctuate from day to day and from year to year.

Global warming or climate change comes from the mass collection of weather data and other conditions worldwide. From those who collect and interpret this data, the climate, to the dismay of the uninformed, is warming.

And odds are it will be even shorter. This is great news for those of us who don’t live in the Twin Cities.
