I recall a program that showed it can be ten degrees hotter or cooler depending where you are on the Arctic ice. Some people use the hotter measurements to "prove" arctic ice is melting and others use the cooler climbs to prove the opposite.

Here in Utah, a local TV station took measurements from sensors placed near the heating ducts to "prove" our winters were cooler.

I'll give you this: perhaps we are in trouble and perhaps it is all about climate change. The real question is, do a few degrees in the next 100 years mean much? Some say the temperatures will rise by 3 or 4 degrees so buy a Prius.
