Warmer winters are happening across the globe

 As climate scientist Kai Kornhuber walks around New York City this winter,
an eerie feeling creeps into his body. It’s warm enough for a T-shirt in
December, and the birds are chirping loudly.

The temperatures tell birds
and trees that it’s time for action, but the systems are out of sync for
December, says Kornhuber, a postdoctoral researcher at Columbia
University’s Earth Institute. “It’s not right, there’s a disconnect
between how it should be and how it is.” Kornhuber said.

Warmer winters
are happening across the globe, and leading to some big impacts: 2021
brought the planet’s 16th-warmest February since records began. While the
popular imagination might associate the climate crisis with scorching
summers and their attendant droughts, wildfires, hurricanes and heat waves,
milder winters can also be drivers of catastrophic weather events and
profound changes. They range from shifts in agricultural use, triggering
changing weather patterns to boosting the likelihood of violent events,
like the swarm of tornadoes that wreaked havoc in the American midwest and
south over last weekend.
