#tbt to 2 weeks ago when my backyard was an Arctic playground for this little fellow, the Dark-eyed Junco. And now it's over 60°F and feels like summer is just around the corner #thisweatheriswhack
Now from some #realtalk . Research from NOAA and Princeton University had already predicted 2 years ago climate change may change how often we see mild weather (64-86°F). It may seem like we are recieving milder weather overall, BUT it was predicted that globally the number of mild weather days will decrease due to global warming. Tropical areas are predicted to have the greatest decrease in mild weather days. This could have quite the impact in areas where there are periods of prolonged heat or prolonged rain/monsoons. Just think of the effect of having a higher chance of extreme weather days throughout the year on people's livelihoods, health, and the local economy.
