Just about the only place in the northern hemisphere that didn't have an unseasonably warm winter compounded by drought or monsoon was the Midwest and Eastern seaboard of the United States. Of course, because that's where the biggest media markets are, the rest of the world doesn't exist. Therefore, climate change is a hoax. Or, at least, that is a lie that some people in those markets will believe so long as the most wealthy people on the planet pay a lot of money to the media in those markets to repeat the lie. And now we understand why cable news is so terrible.
