Mayewski, Birkel speak to USA Today about warming world

USA Today featured Paul Mayewski, professor and director of the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute, and Sean Birkel, Maine state climatologist and assistant professor with a joint appointment in University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the UMaine Climate Change Institute, about data from the University of Maine Climate Change Institute’s Climate Reanalyzer showing that the Earth is getting hotter. “July 4th-July 6th of this year we saw the largest daily global mean temperature increase on record for that day. There’s no doubt that the continents and the oceans are warming,” Mayewski said.
