Need a good laugh. Check out The New York Times' February 2014 article headlined "The End of Snow," which predicted that "in the Northeast, more than half of the 103 ski resorts may no longer be viable in 30 years because of warmer winters." Then, in you happen to live in a northeastern city like Boston, just step outside to experience record cold temperatures and record high levels of snowfall. It's yet another example, writes Ira Stoll, of the Times' inadvertently comical coverage of the climate change debate.
