The EPA says that the coldest winter on record in the US wasn’t cold. They show that 20% of the US was cold this past winter, making it one of the warmest winters on record in the US.
NOAA shows that 74% of the US was below normal temperature, 54% was more than two degrees below normal, and 24% was more than four degrees below normal.
The White House blames the poor economy on the cold winter, which the EPA says never happened. This is the same EPA which is trying to destroy the US coal industry, in order to keep the US from overheating.
The Commerce Department report offers more evidence of how the bitterly cold winter hit the economy. With temperatures in some states at 30-year lows and snows reaching as far south as Atlanta, Georgia, consumers cut back.
