AP cites Climate Reanalyzer in report on cold snap

The Associated Press cited the University of Maine’s Climate Reanalyzer in an article about a deep freeze in the Upper Midwest. Schools closed and warming centers opened across the Midwest when temperatures plummeted Jan. 25, according to the article. Even colder weather was expected for the following week. Temporary harsh cold does not disprove global warming; according to the Climate Reanalyzer, the globe was 1.08 degrees warmer than the 1979–2000 average for Jan. 25. The Washington Post, NBC, USA Today, Madison.com and Sioux City Journal carried the AP article.
