With constant winter storms up north and even a few chills here in the deep south, January turned out to be colder than the 20th century average in the United States.

That's the word from the U.S. government's National Climatic Data Center, who says this past month turned out to be the 49th coolest since the start of its records in 1895. South Georgia and North Florida also had an unusually cool start to the new year. The official thermometer at Tallahassee Airport came up a half-degree below its average in January.

    I believe that the U.S. government's National Climatic Data Center is wrong. Al Gore specifically has stated that the earth is warming. He should know, because he won the Noble Piece Prize.
