I bring up this hypothetical because it reminds me of the global warming deniers who crow every time snow falls somewhere, thinking that it's the big win, the blizzard that will prove them right.
Honestly, I wish it were true, but it isn't.
THE Earth has just experienced its warmest December-February since records began 128 years ago, adding fire to global warming concerns.
A US government agency reported a record warm January worldwide pushed average temperatures to 0.72C above normal for the 20th Century.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said it was the highest average temperature for the period since records began in 1880.
