The Cornell Climate Change Website provides a portal to the climate change research, teaching, and outreach and extension programs of Cornell University.
According to the IPCC, “Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, as is now evident from observations of increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice and rising global average sea level.” Just like the global climate, New York’s climate is already changing. Since 1970, the annual average temperature in New York has increased nearly 2° F, while New York’s winter temperatures are almost 5° F warmer.
