The weather was beautiful over the weekend around most of southeastern Wisconsin. It was especially welcome because during April, it felt like it would never warm up and spring would never arrive. However, April was actually tremendously warm month across the globe and set a temperature record. 

George Stone is professor emeritus of natural science at Milwaukee Area Technical College and the now-retired organizer of the annual Sustainability Summit in Milwaukee.

With the cold weather returning, November may seem like a strong argument against the idea of a warming climate.
