For the past several weeks we’ve been hearing from the anti-science right that global warming is a hoax because it’s been cold outside. All that recent cold weather has had an effect–knocking 2010 from what had been the warmest year on record down to a tie for the warmest. It was also the wettest year on record, with snow storms in no way contradicting the predictions for climate change. Last year tied 2005 for the warmest, knocking 2009 down to third place. I bet this won’t stop the conservatives who claim that the earth is not warming to continue to deny this.
