Warming winters across the United States:
According to The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), currently on average, winter is warming across much of the United States, especially in northern locations and higher altitudes. Since the 1990s winters have been dramatically different. The 2000s decade had so little area with extreme cold, that the decadal average sits barely above the zero line of percentage of areas experiencing extreme cold.
And, according to VOX by 2050 about 67 cities in the United States could lose a month or more of days with temperatures below freezing. And this loss of freezing days will in turn harm ecosystems, human health, and water resources!
