In a pre-“Inconvenient Truth” age, such a day might have been good for a few years’ worth of “remember that time?” anecdotes, but now, a couple of warm days in December brings only two words to mind: global warming.
75 in December? Global warming is getting too real twitter.com/whaddupimshane…

High 60’s on December 3rd? And they say there isn’t global warming… #OhioProbz

Recent record highs make arguing against global warming more & more difficult. The high temperature tomorrow will be in the 70’s. Amazing.

I don’t think people realize, it’s December. It’s supposed to be freezing and filled with snow. If it’s not, it’s called Global Warming 😒

It’s pretty nice out considering we’re in December. Signs of global warming. New York has the most bipolar weather.

If you don’t think this weather is because of Global Warming, chances are you’re probably a republican

Twitchy readers in the South and Southwest might not appreciate the following tweets, but for the rest of the country, a day or two of “global” warming in December is a welcome development.
It’s 70 degrees and sunny. In December.Explain to me why everyone is trying to stop global warming?! This. Is. AWESOME!!!

Quite frankly I’m cool with global warming…. Who is concerned about a polar bear? Ain’t nobody concerned about a polar bear.
— Molly Barton (@Mollz_Ballz10) December 3, 2012
I’ll trade high temperatures in December for less polar bears everyday of the week.

Christmas tree farms and ice cream shops are seeing a jump in business thanks to the record high temperatures. bit.ly/QCCJSd

Al Gore can blow me. Shorts in December is the move
— James Claps (@jimmyboyclapps) December 3, 2012
Oh yeah, that guy. So far today, Gore has not tweeted emergency instructions for how to deal with this change in climate, so we can only imagine what he’s up to.
Somewhere in Washington, D.C. right about now, Al Gore is running around screaming “I TOLD YOU I WAS RIGHT ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING”
