More than One

Many people have send me articles and theories as to why this spring has been cool.  Almost all these articles deal with a certain issue.  Issue as in singular.  I mention that as I constantly remind people that the weather is far more complicated than a single reason.  There are multiple reasons why the weather does what it does.  The atmosphere is a chaotic non-linear system and often times individuals will simplify things by saying this is caused by this.  One common theme send to me is cold spring caused by our solar minimum.  I remind them that our hot and dry spring in 1988 was during a solar minimum.  Plus when we are cold, someone else is warmer than average.
