Writing in July 2010 when the eastern U.S. has been having one heat wave after another, it is easy to forget the winter just past, but winter 2009/10 was one of record snow in much of the mid-Atlantic region and very cold conditions across eastern North America. There was also widespread cold and snow in northwestern Europe. At the time, as record snowfall hit Washington D.C., this was a big deal much exploited by climate deniers and others to ridicule global warming and climate science.

|Gerald Rustic||Postdoctoral Research Scientist||I am interested in climate variability on various time scales - decadal-to-centennial, millennial, and glacial interglacial, and its relationship to large-scale climate states. I am particularly interested in the tropical Pacific Ocean and the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO). Understanding how ENSO variability relates to global climate is fundamental to understanding how our climate system reacts and changes over time.|
