We shattered a 125 year old low temperature record yesterday. How much more humiliation can global warmists suffer?

If your going fishing anywhere north of brainerd for opener good luck, there will be ice on all the lakes unless we get a week of 80 degrees.

Um, for the record, global warming isn't just about heat, but instead about extremes. This looks a little extreme to me. But looking at the positive side of things, I don't believe I have heard one story about any boating accidents yet this year.

Just imagine how late the ice-out would be if we didn't have global warming! Might be as late as June. Time to pump up the CO2 emissions.

Warm weather = global warming. Cold weather = global warming. Stagnant temps = global warming. Extremes = global warming. Failed predictive models = global warming. They have an answer for every situation. Remarkable.
