Global Warming Causes Frostbite

This just in: Global warming may cause “parts of Europe and North America [to] get drastically colder.” Here in Minnesota, I think it’s already happening. The temperature this morning was ten degrees below zero.
The current cold wave is just in time for St. Paul’s annual Winter Carnival, where workers last night were putting the finishing touches on the ice palace. This photo is of the last ice palace, in 1992; this year will be the first time since 1941 that the winter carnival has featured an ice palace that you can actually walk around in. It’s going to have to warm up a little, though, before I try it.
UPDATE: Coincidentally, former Energy and Defense Secretary James Schlesinger has a nice primer on the global temperature change debate in today’s Los Angeles Times (registration required).
