News Flash: It will be hot this summer!!!

I knew this would happen. It's much easier to convince people there is warming when it's warm outside; get thee behind me awful winter...and hurry! Of course, this flies in the face of other predictions that state we're in for a cooling spell.

Read below and see if you can't pick out what's missing. They've let slip a nasty little secret and tried to bury it in a way that you wouldn't notice--the temperatures (again, if you believe their baseline) stopped warming in 1998!!! (That's 10 years ago people.)

But, because of global warming, both winter and summer temperatures over the last few years have been above the long-term average of the three decades running up to 2000.
