NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 27: A man looks for work shoveling out cars on a snowy street on January 27, 2011 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. New York City, still reeling after the Christmas blizzard, closed public schools and limited public transportation following another heavy snowstorm. As of 2:00 am EST, Central Park had received a total for January of 32.3 inches which breaks an 86-year-old record for the month. For much of the northeast this has been one of the snowiest winters in over a decade.

Of course, the reason for the upcoming onslaught of snow...

Globull warming.
