This month began with a bang of a blizzard on Super Bowl Sunday--with Chicago's fifth-largest snowstorm. And it ended with a record low temperature this morning of -10 F (-23 Celsius)--smashing the 1884 record of a relatively balmy 0 F (-17 Celsius).
Meanwhile Great Lakes ice cover is well over 80 percent and if it exceeds 94.7 percent--a figure almost reached last year--that will set a record.
As with last year--climate scientists were unable to predict this brutally cold winter
But Al Gore says "the planet has a fever." And the Obama administration is using climate change as an excuse to ram expensive energy regulations down our throats.
