Even More on the War on White Christmas

After temperatures climbed as high as 76 in Washington, D.C. this week, an article in the Washington Post, talked about the weather patterns that have caused the heat wave without a word on how global warming is making these weather patterns more likely.

The article, conveniently titled “Dreams of a White Christmas Melting,” gives unusual attention to the meterological explanations for the heat. What it misses is that the warm weather is not a phenomenon limited to this weather pattern or this year — it is a microcosm of the climatic changes that are poised to become annual regularities.
