The Mitteldeutsche Zeitung (Central German Newspaper) reports on Europe’s extended brutal winter. In today’s online article, it reminds us that the cold is not only a phenomenon that is isolated in Central Europe, but one that is widespread and extends all the way across Russia to Siberia.
The article writes that there’s lots of data showing that March, 2013, was a record cold month, citing German meteorologist Dominik Jung
In northeast Germany, March 2013 was even the coldest March in 130 years. However, not only Germany and wide areas of Europe suffered from the cold wave reports Dominik Jung: ‘Quite to the contrary, the dramatic negative temperature deviations from the 1981 -2010 longterm mean were widespread across western, central, eastern Europe, all the way to Siberia.‘ Moreover, there were many regions in North and South America where it was very cold. … the cold in Germany was no single isolated case here.”
I never knew global warming could cause such widespread cold. I thought it was supposed to make things warmer.
