Don’t miss the New York Times this morning, which reports on “mainstream” climatologists (are there any other kind in the Times) discounting the idea that climate change will cause Europe to fall into a new ice age (the basic plot line of The Day After Tomorrow).

The lede: “Mainstream climatologists who have feared that global warming could have the paradoxical effect of cooling northwestern Europe or even plunging it into a small ice age have stopped worrying about that particular disaster, although it retains a vivid hold on the public imagination.”
