    Where To See The Climate Crisis In The U.S. Now

    The Climate Crisis Is Not Evenly Distributed, But It's Already Here; A new report details which areas of the United States are already undergoing the most serious change.

    Charles P. Pierce, August 14, 2019 (Esquire)

    “…[T]he most extreme consequences [and impacts] of the climate crisis are already here in the United States…Alaska is the fastest-warming state in the country, but Rhode Island is the first state in the Lower 48 whose average temperature rise has eclipsed 2 degrees Celsius…[Because of higher winter temperatures, other] parts of the Northeast — New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine and Massachusetts — trail close behind…[The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that if Earth heats up by an average of 2 degrees Celsius, virtually all the world’s coral reefs will die; retreating ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica could unleash massive sea level rise; and summertime Arctic sea ice, a shield against further warming, would begin to disappear]…

    Scientists do not completely understand the Northeast hot spot. But fading winters and very warm water offshore are the most likely culprits…[C]limate change is a cycle that feeds on itself…Warmer winters mean less ice and snow cover…[As they] retreat, the ground absorbs the solar radiation and warms…[I]n every Northeast state except Pennsylvania, the temperatures of the winter months of December through February have risen by 2 degrees Celsius since 1895-1896…

    …[I]ce breaks up in New England lakes nine to 16 days earlier than in the 19th century…[B]eaches are disappearing in Rhode Island…And the ripple effects of a warmer planet shake entire ecosystems…[On lake’s warmer]water has resulted in an algae bloom that's made swimming in the lake impossible…[Warmer temperatures have spurred [the southern pine] beetle’s migration north, where it has damaged more than 20,000 acres of the state’s Pine Barrens, a vast coastal forested plain that Congress has defined as a national reserve…The crisis is here, now.” click here for more
