In Monday’s ‘New York’ Magazine: Winter Will Be Not Hard

Boy, sure been warm, hasn’t it? Endless Indian summer? What was Al Gore talking about last year? Hey did you read that thing in the New Yorker this week about all the ocean stuff maybe dying or something? Did you catch that Wall Street Journal piece a while back about farmers getting new land in Greenland as the ice retreats? Now New York goes where no other publication dares, and puts its money down on a strong prediction of the weather to come: “Weird.”

“The Five-Year Forecast,” by Clive Thompson: “Unseasonably warm, with freakish snowfalls and chance of cyclone. This winter will be weird, and the weather will keep getting weirder.”
