Environmental News this week...

In the last month 55 million Americans have experienced below zero temperatures in the states of Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Minnesota. North Dakota has experienced temperatures as low has -32° Celsius and Minnesota -52° Celsius. This is extremely important since it affects the citizens of these states in extreme ways. According to the National Weather Service wind at -32° Celsius can freeze the human skin in about 15 minutes, this is dangerous for all the homeless people living in America who could die because of this.

This fall in temperatures has caused authorities to close schools and government offices temporarily, and cut all flights arriving and coming to the affected states. This also caused a problem since when this happened the Super Bowl was just days around the corner and the fans of the teams where expected to arrive during those days.

This is because of the polar vortex having a sling causing the cold temperatures to make it farther north in America than usual. Of course we all know that this is a result of Climate Change a problem caused by us, humans. We are putting ourselves in danger because we are not taking advice from what the analysis and experts are telling us about this problem. It is time to make a change.
