A well informed article. I liked the ""Is this evidence of global warming, Paul?" You can't prove it scientifically, but there's probably a better than 50/50 chance that this incredible warm spell is (in fact) linked with anthropogenic climate change."

It recognises the limitation of attribtuion for climate at this time, and even a warm month' is just data in terms of climate. It will take decades to amass the evidence to create any climate connections.

Meteorologist must deal with reality.
But a totally different FACET of reality than climatology. weather reports work with CURRENT DATA and even then they can't get it too close because weather is more chaotic than climate.

Meteorologists as a class know VERY little about climate. They are completely focussed on short term local conditions and wouldn't know climate if it bit them on the posterior
This is just another demonstration that you don't know the difference between weather and climate and get them confused.
