Climate-Change Debate Is Heating Up in Deep Freeze


Skeptics of global warming are using the record-setting snows to mock those who warn of dangerous human-driven climate change — this looks more like global cooling, they taunt.

Considering that the NY Times was obviously aware of this editorial, maybe they should have reconsidered quoting Romm.
