The weather forecasters on TV NEVER connect the weird and extreme weather to climate change. Instead, they dupe people into believing that unusually warm winter temperatures is just a gift from the heavens. They love telling their audiences that unseasonal weather is a great thing. They are as culpable as the climate-deniers.
