Lyon speaks to the Guardian about September heat waves in California

Bradfield Lyon, a research professor at the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, spoke to the Guardian about this September’s record-breaking heat waves in California. “By mid-century, the [spatial] size of heatwaves in the US are expected to increase between about 50% to 80% from what they are in the current climate. The frequency will increase, the duration will increase, as well as the intensity,” Lyon said.
