Headline of the day II: Punchline to an old joke?


You know, the one about selling refrigerators to Eskimos?

From Grist:

Greenland was hotter than New York City last week

The island experienced the highest temperatures ever recorded on June 9, when air temperature in Nuuk, the capital city, soared to 75 degrees F. While that may seem like no sweat, the average high for this time of year between 1961 and 1990 was just 44 degrees F, and even Greenland’s hottest month rarely broke 50.
