What Will the Future Hold?
In the past few weeks, we have experienced freezing rain and chilly conditions quickly followed by fifty-degree days and sunshine, an abnormality for February weather. While this may just be a strange pattern, we have experienced this phenomenon over the past few years, and now some are wondering whether it might be a sign of something more.
The country has become numb to the term “climate change,” as a result of its constant misuse in American politics. In spite of this, we must reassess whether this topic is purely political, as global changes are already taking place as a result of warmer climates all across the globe. They range from raging wildfires in California, intense hurricanes in Florida, to severe flooding throughout the world. While these changes may seem far in distance and irrelevant to local life, scientists can measure exactly how close to home global warming has already started to hit.
