Much interesting discussion today about the issue of “framing” in the politics of global climate change – see, for example, Ellen Goodman’s column in the Boston Globe, along with useful discussion by Matthew Nisbet and Tom Yulsman. Useful stuff, but ignores the “sleeveless tops in February” frame. 🙂

From the Fix:

What’s with the weather lately? I mean, I know global warming is very bad because it melts the polar icecaps and will cause the demise of civilization, etc, but I can’t say I mind being able to wear sleeveless tops in February. Also, being able to feel my legs after I get back from going somewhere on the scooter is definitely a plus.
