BDN covers climate report findings
The Bangor Daily News shared findings from the 2020 Maine’s Climate Future report authored by University of Maine scientists, with support from the Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park. The state’s climate is not only changing due to global temperatures increasing overall, but the rate at which it is changing is speeding up, according to the article. In addition, Maine is getting warmer and wetter, and there is greater variability in the weather, with occasional periods of drought in between intense storms and temperature swings in the winter that can produce single-digit temperatures one day and melting conditions the next. The report can be read here. Maine Public carried the BDN article, and Phys.org and Environmental News Network published the UMaine news release about the report.
