Global Warming

You know how when climate crisis deniers say things like, "look!  it's snowing!  obviously global warming is a hoax!" and people like me rush to point out, "Hey, there's a difference between WEATHER and CLIMATE!"

Well here in New Jersey its 70 degrees out and Christmas is only a few days away.  When we see relatives this holiday season I'm going to use every opportunity to say, "Gosh, it is Christmas and its 70 degrees out!  Global Warming must be real!" and if anyone starts to clarify that there's a difference between weather and climate I'm going to just say...

Suggestions?   I have no idea what I'm going to say.

You say that you complete agree with them, of course! It's always good to start with a commonly held belief. And then you go one to point out the changes in the climate.

Yes, that.

In fact, one can just exclaim, "Exactly!" and wait for reaction.

I'm reasonably certain it doesn't help to give unscientific answers, even when they benefit our (your) side.
