People forget about global warming during the dead of winter.

Perceptions of Global Warming and the Seasons:
There is a large drop in google searches for "global warming" in the US, Canada and the UK during our February winters. The same drop in searches for Australia and South Africa happens during their July winters. The search for "Calentamiento Global" in spanish South America has the drop coinciding with that of the English speaking southern hemisphere countries.
What does this say about how people understand these issues?

These graphs were made possible with Google Insight. See if you can find your own interesting trends. Post them here or tell the people at Google Israel

Unrelated, see where people have been searching for Obama.
