Maine Public notes UMaine contributions to climate reporting – I. Fernandez

In a roundup of the year’s climate stories, Maine Public cited an interview with Ivan Fernandez, a professor of soil science at the University of Maine, where he said that snow in Maine has decreased by 7% and will decrease by another 20%–40% by 2050. The article also noted that, according to the University of Maine’s 2020 update on climate change, the spruce and fir trees that made Maine famous will decline as a result of warmer seasons.
