A new temperature analysis by the scientists and journalists at ClimateCentral.org shows the manifestation of global warming in various regions of the United States.
The implications for forests in each region are, of course, significant. But the new analysis provides a different seasonal perspective on what’s happening.
In the Northeast, Great Lakes and Northern Plains, for example, wintertime warming is the most dramatic. Average winter temperatures in Burlington, Vermont, have increased by 7 degrees since 1970 – and they’re still on the rise.
