I enjoyed some of the comments:

The writer needs to learn physics.
.
The earth is closest to the sun during Northern Hemisphere WINTER, and NOT, as he suggests, during summer.
.
The earth is farthest away during NH summer. During winter, the earth is about 91.5 million miles from the sun. Around July 4, it is 94.5 million miles.
.
The NH is in winter because of the tilt of the axis, and the sunlight is less direct. But we are about 3 million miles closer to the sun.
.
It would be a stretch, to take science advice from someone who gets such a basic concept wrong.


Can we use the same same reasoning to say that abnormally hot weather doesn't prove global man-made global warming.

Would Grist please compensate for this article by publishing another one entitled "How To Respond to People Who Condescend to Those With Whom They Disagree About Climate Science While Simultaneously Demonstrating Utter Ignorance of Why the Seasons Change"?
