Media watchers by now are well familiar with the habit of reporters and news anchors wondering if climate-change might explain whatever weather event is currently underway. Thursday's snowstorm was certainly no different.
A CNN panel featuring Athena Jones, Van Jones, and Chris Cuomo all laid blame on climate change.
ATHENA JONES: "-- And other storms like super-storm Sandy; floods, droughts. We expect there to be a lot of focus on climate change."
VAN JONES: "Global warming deniers say, 'look, there's snow. In the winter. Nothing to worry about.' This -- Well, we've got the biggest state in the Union becoming a desert right in front of our eyes. Now --"
CUOMO: "You go outside and there's tons of snow and it's really cold it makes you think that global warming is a hoax. I understand that that's naive, but why is it naive? ... It's not just about global warming. In one way it's about extremes. You've got a big drought out there, big snow here."
