“See, I told you that all of this nonsense about global warming is a hoax,” Eric said. “Look out of the window, son. It snowed last night and it never snows in San Francisco. Now my roses are ruined.”
“Dad, just because it snowed here doesn’t mean that climate change isn’t real,” Nick said. “You’re confusing climate with weather. Climate change can result in changing weather patterns, including snow in areas where it doesn’t typically snow. As climate change worsens, unusual and even dangerous weather events are becoming more frequent or severe.”
“My ruined roses could use some global warming.”
