Ben, you can't use the current cold-snap weather as an argument that global warming isn't happening.

Here's why -- when the summertime comes and the inevitable hottest day of the year occurs, breaking some high temperature record, there are always people who look at the sky and say "Wow, this hot weather is proof that global warming is real." Are you prepared to accept that argument FOR global warming? It's indistinguishable from your own. You can't use weather data from an extremely short timeframe to argue for or against any particular long-term trend or weather pattern -- i.e., global warming. Since you're a demographer and statistics buff, I would expect you to keep yourself from falling into such a logic trap.
