Dr. Altaf Arain, the director of the McMaster Centre for Climate Change, was recently quoted in a news article discussing how the recent cold weather does not mean global average temperatures aren't still increasing.
Check out the article about MacSMS, which lets people text to receive data from the weather station: http://dailynews.mcmaster.ca/article/macsms-puts-local-weather-in-the-palm-of-your-hand/

Three McMaster Students have created a new service for the McMaster Community and others around campus. Now current campus weather information can be accessed by sending a text message, using either work “w” or “weather”, to the phone number 1-289-724-1622. It is very quick and simple!
The weather information comes from McMaster University's Weather Station operated by the McMaster Centre for Climate Change, rather from Hamilton Airport or other nearby stations. Therefore, it is more relevant to the campus community.
