Global warming alarmists continue to cling bitterly to their certainty that it is settled science that the climate will get warmer, even though temperatures have not risen for the last 15 years. Others, including me, take a different view. Anyway, I learn from the Snow & Ice Management Association, which has put me on its email list, that it is holding its 2013 Snow Management Forum in Washington on Aug. 4-5.

Yes, there is such an organization. But in this case, it’s not headquartered anywhere near K Street. Its head office is instead in Milwaukee, which I am sure is much better at snow removal than the District of Columbia.
