Climate change is a pressing issue that certainly needs to be addressed, not just in the US, but also with the rest of the world. In the US alone, we’ve experienced very unpredictable weather such as stronger hurricanes, hotter summers, and longer and colder winters like the last one. In Michigan, some cities experienced temperatures as low as – 29 °F. The long stretch of cold weather ground numerous activities to a halt.
Meteorologists attribute the extreme cold wave to climate change. And things will continue getting worse from here on. An article in wxyz.com had this report:
Our heat waves are more frequent and last longer, while intense, flooding rains are happening more often. Our growing seasons are getting longer and our air quality is getting worse.
“Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present,” according to the large scientific panel charged by the United States government with writing the report. Congress mandated in 1990 that such a report be prepared every four years to monitor how climate could be changing in our country.
