The debate on warming of the earth’s climate due to rising levels of atmospheric CO2 and associated climate change has gone on for over 40 years. Environmentalists and news media continue to point out increasing incidences of extreme weather events (e.g., heat waves, droughts/floods) and their harmful impacts on human societies. There is mounting evidence of increase in cold weather extremes which is at odds with the pervasive view of a warming climate. This paper deals with this overlooked but important issue of climate change and cold weather extremes. A brief overview of the global warming science as espoused by the UN climate body; IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is presented. Several examples of cold extremes since the new millennium are provided and briefly discussed. Short comments on the perceived “Climate Catastrophe” and the ‘net-zero-by-2050’ theme are provided in the end.
