This is why the science community has mostly referred to the issues at hand as Global Climate Change instead of the Media and Politician's Global Warming.
All along they have been talking about places like Great Britain getting COLDER while other areas like the US MidWest getting wetter and hotter over the long run. The changes in the JetStream, along with the Gulf flow are two of the primary system drivers.
It is all those "worst on record" issues that are the problem. While the naysayers point out that there has been little or no hurricanes, they seem oblivious to the unusually large Low Pressure systems that have generated record rains throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Illinois this year. And while the Atlantic has not had a particularly bad season, the Pacific and Indian Oceans have had massive storm seasons. But I guess since it doesn't affect Americans it can't be important or "count".
So far over 20Million Indians have been left homeless from storms just in the past 45 days.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
