Despite Deep Freeze, Global Warming Still Happening

Most of the nation may be frozen, but an expert says the world is still warming. Lonnie Thompson is a renowned climatologist and professor at Ohio State who has studied the effects of climate on glaciers around the globe. He says public opinion on climate change tends to shift in response to cold weather patterns.
Thompson says each of the past three decades has been hotter than the one before, and those three decades were hotter than at any time in the past 1400 years. Phoenix had its hottest summer ever in 2013, and seven of the ten hottest years in the city have happened since 2000.
