Snowpocalypse sign of global warming

Now that the Philadelphia/DC area has gotten its third major snowstorm of the winter season, anti-science and global climate change deniers have been embolden in their rhetoric.

Their main argument seems to be, “It is cold, and therefore global warming is a hoax.” What they fail to understand is that it is winter; it is supposed to be cold. Also there is a difference between weather and climate. One cannot simply look at the weather of the week or even the season and make an accurate conclusion about the climate. Climate research studies decades and centuries of weather and not simply the day to day temperature.
