Now, if we were getting record warm weather, it'd be all over the news and they'd be yammering about "global warming". Instead, nothing.
I do have to say that the leaves here have reached their peak color, which is unusual for early November. Ordinarily the leaves have turned and mostly fallen by now. But perhaps trees have a mechanism for dealing with cooler average weather, which somehow makes the foliage last longer into colder weather. I don't know.
Evidence of global cooling.
