The little furry prognosticator may not be a scientist but he makes more sense than most of the the global warming crowd. Naturally the A.P. has to find a conspiracy in Groundhog Day. They talk about the "inner circle" in Puxatawney and analyze the little furry critter's motivation. Anyway, I never figured out how seeing a shadow on a sunny day indicates cold weather but like the warmies say "you gotta trust the science"..
