Periodic bouts of extreme cold do not invalidate or weaken the overwhelming scientific evidence that human activities are warming the Earth to dangerous levels. Some evidence even suggests that human-induced global warming may be a driving force behind some winter cold snaps, and that Arctic warming in particular may ultimately increase the frequency and persistence of U.S. winter cold snaps.
