Global Warming?

As Christmas trees go up, summer flowers blossom in local dooryards. A flowering crabapple is in full bloom at the corner of Pearl and Hamilton. Forsythia, geraniums and roses are opening nearby.

A weather headline today in says mild weather is expected to continue, with temperature as much as 15 degrees higher than normal today. This month has run about 6 degrees above normal, according to Charlie Foley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Taunton.


I was walking home from the BCA theater in the south end on the 5th of December and saw the most beautiful dark purple irises sprouted and in bloom on Marlborough Street in Boston. At what point do all of these warm weather oddities add up to statistical evidence that things are warming up?
