Global warming reports cause cold weather -- II

I've noted before that global warming reports can cause cold weather: "And sure enough, this past weekend saw the release of an alarmist report on global warming. Since then, it's been incredibly cold."

Again this week: "UN panel issues stark climate change warning."

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Climate experts issued their starkest warning yet about the impact of global warming, ranging from hunger in Africa to a fast thaw in the Himalayas, in a report on Friday that increased pressure on governments to act.
And right on schedule, we had snow in April. The Post headlines it: "In April, Trotting in Winter Wonderland / Unusual Cold Snap Drops 4 Inches of Snow, Cancels Plans."

I wish they'd stop issuing these reports.

UPDATE: In case you were wondering, it doesn't feel much like spring when you play softball with the temperature in the mid-30s and a 10-15 MPH wind. Layering doesn't quite do the trick.
