I have recently got a blizzard in my state and that does NOT mean global warming is fake. Why, some may ask? When activists and scientists talk about global warming, they are talking about global warming, they are talking about the average temperature over years and decades. The temperature has risen almost 2˚F since 1900s. And the rate of the earth warming up is getting speedier and speedier every year. Last year, in fact was one of the seven warmest years on record.
