Climate Reanalyzer cited in AP polar vortex story

The Associated Press cited the University of Maine Climate Reanalyzer in a story titled “EXPLAINER: Topsy-turvy weather comes from polar vortex.” The reanalyzer, according to the story, shows that the “globe as a whole is about the same temperature as the average was from 1979 to 2000 for this time of year,” which is still “warmer than the 20th century average.” ABC News, Voice of America, Yahoo! News, KTAR News, MyNorthwest, the Independent Tribune, WKBT-TV,, the Mooresville Tribune, the Harrison Daily Times and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette shared the AP article.
