Scientific American Needs to Do a Better Job at Communicating Science

by Sierra Rayne,  American Thinker

A report in Scientific American discusses summer heat in Madison, Wisconsin:

To [Jason] Schatz [from the University of Wisconsin in Madison], the summer of 2012 exemplified temperatures Madison and the rest of southern Wisconsin could see more frequently in July and August by the middle of the century.

That summer, Madison had 39 days above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The annual average is usually 12 days over 90, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data.

Schatz cited a 2011 report by the Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts that predicted the southern part of the state will likely experience about 25 days above 90 F per year by 2050. Read the entire story.
