Will RFK, Jr. Retract Last Years Article About Lack of Snow in Virginia Supporting Global Warming?

Man-made global warming proponents used warmer winters as anecdotal evidence of global warming. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. joined in this strategy last year in this article. Will he write one this year claiming historic snowfall is evidence of global cooling?

The Washington Examiner reported:
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who flies around on private planes so as to tell larger numbers of people how they must live their lives in order to save the planet, wrote a column last year on the lack of winter weather in Washington, D.C.
In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today's anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don't own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.
