Whenever we have a stretch of particularly unusual weather, be it weird storms, intense heat, an abnormally warm winter, etc., people start talking about global warming, or more accurately, "climate change".

I'm not a scientist so I hesitate to completely weigh in on this one, since I couldn't decipher the data even if I tried.

Except to say that I think George Carlin, though obviously not a scientist either,  made a lot of sense on this one, as he usually did on any observation he made.

There's no lack of opinions about this controversial issue.
