Yeah and most of the statistics you see are based on the rising average temperature of urban areas and the reports casually neglect something called "Urban Island Effect." The denser the population, the higher the temperature because of obvious reasons. Dig up the temperature records for rural areas and you'll be amazed to see that in some areas the temperature did, in fact, increase by a couple degrees over the last hundred years but other areas actually declined.

It's sensationalist reporting... just like everything else you see now a days. How can you trust the media when it comes to how serious a situation is when they're declaring Winter Storm Emergencies for two inches of snow...
