Weather and climate

We posted recently about some people's inability to understand that weather and climate are not the same thing. Noted xenophobic, racist, homophobic idiot, Richard Littlejohn, for example, struggles with this. For a closer look at this particular example of Littlejohn's stupidity start here.

Of course, the fact that weather and climate are different things doesn't mean that they are utterly disconnected. This article offers some interesting thoughts on how the current cold snap in Europe is in fact related to anthropogenic climate change. There's some further discussion here.
