Daniel Swain in NY Times: Snow in Forecast for a 2,500-Mile Path From California to Maine

Daniel Swain, a UCLA climate scientist, spoke with NY Times about forecasted snow from California to Maine. 

“Increasingly in California and elsewhere we’re seeing anecdotes that are lining up with the physical science evidence,” Mr. Swain said. “The last 30 years have changed a lot more than the previous 30 years, and we expect that the coming 30 years will change a lot more than the present 30 years.”
