I found this fossil leaf frozen into thick first year ice in the reflecting pool in front of the US Capitol today. People were playing hockey right in front of the Capitol Building.
Washington DC may be having their coldest start to a year on record. I will be able to evaluate that in a few days, but I do know that the first week of 2018 has been much colder than the first week of notoriously cold 1977. The Sun is very quiet, just like it was in 1977.
The only liquid water flowing around DC is that flowing out of thousands of burst pipes around the city.
Climate experts say the cold is due to CO2. Later in the week will be warm, which they will also blame on CO2. But the Sun is setting on their scam. Tomorrow we work on that.
