Climate Change in the Northeastern United States

What does this mean?Average NE temperatures are rising by ~2°F each century or ~.2°F per decade.

Annual Average Precipitation (1895-2015)

Annual Average Temperatures (1895-2015)

January 2015 has seen the warmest ocean temperatures and the third warmest land temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere since 1880. (NOAA, 2015)

Act on Climate

Based on current data and long term trends average annual precipitation as well as average temperatures will continue to rise. We can reasonably conclude that the extent of sea ice will continue to decrease while sea levels continue to rise.

These trends may appear trivial, but left alone the effects of rising sea levels and decreasing sea ice will have implications for generations to come. The effects of changing climate can be seen in many species today.
