2008 Likely To Be Hot, But Not The Record-Breaker

As you settle in to watch the Green Bay Packers defeat The New York Giants on a brutally cold field - - and no doubt the announcers will make the requisite 'bring on global warming' wisecracks - - keep in mind that predictions for the 2008 climate are for a year among the hottest, but not a record-breaker.

That's because it's time for the cyclical La Nina, which produces cooling from tropical water.

The climate change deniers will probably say this means that global warming is a hoax.

Unfortunately, they are wrong, but expect them to demagogue a bit, courtesy of the La Nina phenomenon.
