Climate Reanalyzer cited in Stock Daily Dish story about brutal cold – S. Birkel
Stock Daily Dish mentioned the University of Maine Climate Change Institute Climate Reanalyzer in a story about a cold snap in the Midwest that prompted the closing of dozens of schools Friday, Nov. 22. Cold weather advisories were in effect from North Dakota to Ohio, with cold wind chills that could dip to as low as 45 below zero (minus 42 Celsius) in northern Wisconsin and Minnesota and to 35 below (minus 37 Celsius) in parts of northern Illinois and Iowa, according to the story. “The University of Maine’s Climate Reanalyzer notes that the temporary icy cold doesn’t disprove global warming, despite what some non-scientists may claim. On Friday, the globe as a whole was 1.08 degrees (0.6 degrees Celsius) warmer than the 1979 to 2000 average,” the piece concluded.
