I recently read a story about a chief of the Sioux nation, a wise old man, who once lived in what is now the state of Minnesota.  It was during the Fall of the year that a group of young braves sought out his advice concerning the coming winter.    
“O great chief,” they asked, “will the winter this year be a mild one or will it be very harsh with extreme frigid temperatures?”  
Not rightly knowing how to predict the weather, the old chief replied that the winter was going to be very cold and that the members of his tribe should go out and collect wood in order to be prepared for difficult times.  
Being a responsible leader, the old man then went into his tepee and called the National Weather Service on his cell phone.  
“Sir,” he asked, “is this winter going to be cold or will we be blessed with mild weather due to the effect of global warming that I hear so much about?”  
The weatherman responded,
“Chief, this winter is most certainly going to be very cold; that you can count on.”
