Individual temperatures are about weather. Averages, over time and space, 
are about climate.

But for both, shouldn't we be looking at short-term energy generation from 
temperature differences, such as between -6 degrees and the temperature of 
the Willamette River, maybe using a propane turbine system, in the process 
maybe making and storing ice for energy generation in the summer? I figure 
we might be doing that kind of thing when we get serious about dealing with 
fossil fuel shortages and changing climate.
