Letter: Warming trend is clear



I read with bemusement the “Not seeing a climate catastrophe” letter in the Jan. 21 edition of Current in Carmel. I am assuming that Mr. Smith is a climate scientist, or perhaps has worked in the energy or environmental field, so he speaks from a place of authority. Personally, I choose to read scientific reports coming out of institutions like Purdue University, Indiana University, NASA and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change versus looking out the window to determine if climate change is affecting the planet.

According to reports, frost-free days in Indiana are already increasing, and average annual precipitation has increased. These trends are predicted to continue. The fact is that the planet, not just my backyard, is indeed experiencing rapid warming, which is already affecting the agricultural, aquatic and forest ecosystems of Indiana.
