The recent forecast by the Environmental Protection Agency that a general warming of the earth’s atmosphere will occur during the next decades has sent shivers all along the East Coast.
In Florida they are afraid that the coastal cities will be submerged by the rising Atlantic Ocean. In Arizona they are wondering whether the recent floods will become a permanent feature of their climate. And in New York they are thinking of selling the city’s snowplows.

The NFL did a Super Bowl XLVIII presentation in New York on Wednesday in preparation for the big game coming in — somehow — just 46 days.
By far the biggest concern with the 2014 Super Bowl, being played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, is the weather.
