The Reference Frame: Siberia overtakes Europe

The weather depends on the place. For example, Britain is excited that it experiences colder weather than the South Pole. You may think that it's no wonder because the South Pole is in the middle of the summer.

The Romney campaign also exploited a 2008 video in which Gingrich and former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) cooperated to promote action on climate change. Those attacks intensified Monday when the campaign suggested that liberal billionaire George Soros helped to underwrite the video by giving $5 million in 2008 to the Alliance for Climate Protection, the nonprofit championed by former Vice President Al Gore that produced the clip.
