Fifteen of the last 17 years have been the warmest ever recorded. There will still be cold fronts, but temperatures will continue to rise.  Who cares?

A warmer wetter atmosphere is resulting in climate volatility, more wild weather swings between drought and flood, putting more pressure on agriculture and fresh water supplies.” Paul Douglas in the Startribune.com on January 17, 2015.
