In an article titled "NOAA: Blizzard Rearranges Climate Change Announcement" in the Wall Street Journal, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association had to resort to announcing by telephone the creation of a new Climate Service office:
“More and more, Americans are witnessing the impacts of climate change in their own backyards, including sea-level rise, longer growing seasons, changes in river flows, increases in heavy downpours, earlier snowmelt and extended ice-free seasons in our waters. People are searching for relevant and timely information about these changes to inform decision-making about virtually all aspects of their lives,” the release says.
Yes, the office to study climate change had to cancel the live press conference to announce their existence because of a blizzard shutting down the government. That's just too much. Did I mention there will be more snow in DC midweek? Damn that global warming.
Hey, anybody seen Al Gore lately?
