The Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research’s co-director Jerry Schnoor has released a column on climate change.
In the article, Schnoor discusses how trends in record temperatures can indicate climate change. The United States has seen about two record highs for every record low over the last few years. This ratio is expected to increase to 20:1 by mid-century due to climate change.
Schnoor also states that events like this summer’s drought will occur more frequently because of greenhouse gas accumulation in the atmosphere.
