As if anyone needs a reminder, a physical manifestation of this uncommonly frigid winter is Great Lakes ice cover is now up to 87 percent, which is more than twice the average seasonal max.
That is the second highest ice cover for this time of year in the satellite era, just a hair below the 1993-94 winter record.
If the cold weather is getting to you do not despair, for there is still time to fly down to South Africa, where it is summer, to become a Climate Reality Leader, trained by Al Gore and the Climate Reality Project. Round trip you will show your commitment to the movement by generating 2,988 pounds, or 1.36 tons of carbon dioxide (flying New York to Johannesburg). Do it with Al! Good luck to all!
