NOAA: Coolest Winter Since 2001 for U.S., Globe

Start teh panic machine--Global cooling hysteria is on its way.From NOAA , the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.
The average temperature across both the contiguous U.S. and the globe during climatological winter (December 2007-February 2008) was the coolest since 2001, according to scientists at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. In terms of winter precipitation, Pacific storms, bringing heavy precipitation to large parts of the West, produced high snowpack that will provide welcome runoff this spring.
A complete analysis is here.

By the way, just a question but how does NOAA "Administer" the oceans and atomosphere?

It is not like the Food and Drug Administration or the Federal Aviation Administration where the are actually administering rules regarding food drugs and flight safety.
