2°C ‘tipping point’ has already arrived for these 70 U.S. counties

For years now now, we’ve been hearing warnings about 2 degrees Celsius of warming — the global average cautioned against as part of the 2015 Paris accord. But according to a Washington Post interactive published on Tuesday, that so-called “tipping point” has already arrived in many towns across the country.

The earth is warming at an uneven rate. The Post looked at 100+ years of data from over 3,000 U.S counties and found that over 70 have already exceeded 2 degrees C of warming above pre-industrial levels. That translates to 34 million people (roughly 1 in 10 Americans) living in regions that are heating especially rapidly.

So where are the U.S. hot spots? The counties that have already reached 2 degrees C or warming are spread throughout the U.S., but there are some regional trends. The fastest-warming state in the country is Alaska, which may come as no surprise given its recent spate of heat waves and wildfires. In the Lower 48, Rhode Island’s average temperature increase is the first to pass 2 degrees Celsius, with other parts of the Northeast, including New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine, and Massachusetts, not far behind.




While the east coast has been sizzling this summer, the Post found that most regional increases were driven by warming winter temperatures, not summer heat waves. That’s means lakes can’t freeze (causing algae blooms, in some cases) and pests don’t die as per usual in certain historically cold regions. Less snow and ice also means those regions are less able to reflect solar radiation during winter, further feeding into the warming cycle.

The freezing point “is the most critical threshold among all temperatures,” David A. Robinson, New Jersey state climatologist and professor at Rutgers University’s department of geography, told the Post.

Scientists aren’t yet sure why the Northeast is warming so quickly. But experts say these 2-degree C hotspots are like little pieces of the future here in the present, showing us what’s coming.

Most people agree that there is global waring.

It’s that man is the cause sh*t we don’t agree with

So 70 of 3,000+ counties had temps 2 degrees higher. How does man made "global" warming only hit 70 counties? That isn't very global and there's no way for human activity to affect 70 random dispersed counties out of a group of over 3000. It's called weather.

DUMB ASS!

Blah, blah, blah

Taxes will fix this. If we all give 95% of our wages to the libs/UN, the sun will decrease its energy output, and the natural climate cycles will be stopped.

That's bullshit. I live in an area they claim is most effected and I am not living in a different climate than the one I was born into. Junk.

There are cold spots too. The climate, is, changing.
But this is just a phase of weird and extreme weather. Like one that happened 25,000 years ago, last time the northern hemisphere was heating up.

And as far as warming worries go..
Wait till after the last half of this century. And the grand solar minimum has passed.

The floods and effects we are getting from the solar minimum, this year. Will be worse, in (about)11 years. And worse than that, in 22 years. And in (about)33 years, in the 2050s, the worst it will get, for hundreds of years.

The effects of that GSM, should accumulate to create something like the 'Little Ice age', that happened last GSM.
Unless greenhouse effect, or global warming, might help mitigate it some.
