Cold Winters in the Conditions of Global Warming?


Fox59 informs that parts of the US are facing record cold temperatures, and some people wonder what happened to global warming.

To understand why, you have to first know the difference between weather and climate. Weather is what happens today, climate is what happens over the long run.

For years, climate skeptics have pointed to cold winter weather as proof that global warming is a hoax. Marshall Shepherd, director of the Atmospheric Sciences Program at the University of Georgia and a former president of the American Meteorological Society said that people also confused what was happening where they lived as an indication of what was happening globally.

While portions of the US might be mired in a deep freeze, many other parts of the planet are seeing record-breaking heat waves.

Today, climate change is commonly used as a term to describe the effects of global warming that have occurred as a result of human activity following the industrial revolution in the 18th century. So that’s why global warming is still a thing, even when it seems like the winter weather reigns supreme.
