It is as if he took record temps in Atlanta or Chicago and claimed it was a proxy for the entire globe... - jck101

I never claimed any temperature anomaly at any given location serves as a "proxy for the entire globe." Those are your words, not mine.

I was simply pointing out that Denialists routinely offer up posts with the heading "Global Warming Hits..." any time there is some cold weather event and use that as some sort of "proof" that there is no global warming, yet they all fall silent when there are warm temp anomalies.

I've also posted links to sources that examine how the Arctic Oscillation (AO) affects hemispheric temperatures and that AO effects have become more pronounced given that warming over the Arctic has led to a weakening of the jet stream such that we are seeing "weirder" temperature anomalies.

Folks genuinely interested in understanding what is happening globally generally take note of such phenomena.
