Climate Change Institute Maps Featured in Business Insider Article

The Business Insider article, “It’s warmer in Alaska than in Texas right now,” featured maps produced by the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute. The maps, which were created using CCI’s Climate Reanalyzer, showed average temperatures across North America today and how much those temperatures differ from their overall average levels. According to one of the maps, most of the central U.S. is seeing temperatures more than 20 F below their averages for this time of year, while Alaska is more than 20 F warmer than usual in some regions, the article states. Star Tribune’s On Weather blog and The Washington Post‘s Wonkblog also featured a Climate Reanalyzer map.
