Local Warming: An almanac of American climate change

by Thomas Munro

Did the winter feel more like fall in your town? Does it seem like there are more weirdly warm than weirdly cool months where you live? Do heat waves seem to be more severe? You may wonder how your experience of the weather in your city relates to the global phenomenon of climate change. “Local warming” makes answers to this question easily accessible for the first time.

Unseasonable, odd, even unprecedented weather is part of the lived experience of the vast majority of Americans. Yet the phrase “global warming” is rarely uttered on the nightly weather report. It is this disconnect between the powerful, unsettling lived experience of a changing climate and the bogeyman of “climate change” that inspired this book. “Local Warming” presents and compares in charts, graphs, and an explanatory narrative the local climate changes nearly every American is experiencing.
