My Take On Climate Change: Warmer Weather in New York By City Tech Blogger Noel Nova

 

The changes in the temperature in New York are starting to feel very noticeable.  You notice that summer is appearing to be longer while winter seems to be shorter. Due to the rise in climate change, the average United States temperature has increased by 0.16 Fahrenheit every decade since the beginning of the 20th century. With the increase of climate change in the United States, New York winters have been getting warmer quickly. They are 3 times faster than summer. Having New York with warmer winters will affect the transitions between seasons from winter and spring because the changes may take some time for many agriculture to adapt to the changes and the natural wildlife. The increase in the temperature of winter will make a major impact on the natural ecosystem via the fluctuating temperature increase. Not only the land but also the ocean will be affected by the increase in winter weather.

Many coastal temperatures in the northeastern part of the United States have shown that ocean water temperature has increased from up to 0.06 Fahrenheit every year from 1982 to 2016. Warming of the oceans have contributed to the rise of sea levels and impacting marine life and ecosystems that are disrupting the natural cycle of marine migration.
