Is global warming to blame for rising temperatures in Michigan?
When temperatures turn extreme, two questions are bound to be the subject of debate: Are our temperatures getting warmer and, if so, is it because of global warming? MLive took a look at trends in three Michigan cities to give readers some context and perspective.
Grand Rapids also was studied but unlike Flint and Detroit, the city had more temperature fluctuations since record-keeping began and did not experience a sharp warming in temperatures until 1998, according to the MLive report.
MLive's story also asks readers to determine what they consider a s significant rise — is two and a half degrees over 30 years a big deal? Over 60 years?
