Matthew Yglesias notes that as it’s been extremely cold lately in the eastern US, major American media organizations have been wondering where all the global warming has gone.

Yglesias notes that one other big hotter-than-average zone is the middle of the Pacific, location of the El Nino phenomenon that Vietnamese weather authorities say is responsible for the drought.
