You know the old joke that everyone complains about the weather but no one ever does anything about it. Well, that quip takes on a more serious tone these days with so much concern about climate change and threats of global warming.
Enter this winter if you want to call it that. There are some snow flurries out there right now but to this point the notorious Vermont winter has felt more like a chilly spring at best, and that’s prompted the question: Are we feeling the effects of global warming now?
It’s a question meteorologist Mark Breen gets asked a lot these days. He spoke with Mitch Wertlieb about the subject and says he recalls some other especially mild starts to winter.
