Event Horizon of U.S. Conservative Talking Heads

The conservative media have been full of chatter lately, casting doubt on the reality of climate change, because it’s been very cold in the Midwest in January and February.

The fact is, the global temperature in January was the fourth warmest on record, 1.17°F warmer than the 20th century average.

A tiny percentage of the world’s surface is the small circle in the United States that had colder than average temperatures in January. This appears to be the entire event horizon of our conservative talking heads. Have they no concept of the term “global?” Do they ever leave Missouri?

Maybe they should watch Al Jazeera more often.
