is that people seem to think that what happened last week is the new normal.
Hansen mentioned this at the AAAS panel last Saturday, as well. This cuts both ways. Bad weather, climate concerns up. Good weather, climate concerns down.
On a related note I am happy (sort of) to report that climate concerns are down in Central Texas for this very reason. The drought is still abating, flowers and (surviving) trees are happily budding, lawns are greening, the hipsters are packing their bags for SXSW, and everything is glorious again.
