Environment Canada's senior climatologist: "The swings in temperature have had nothing to do with climate"
appears to have
a realistic view
on the recent big temperature swings:
While some experts are pointing to climate change as a pivotal factor in weather fluctuations, Environment Canada’s senior climatologist says temperature changes are par for the course.
“There’s a difference between climate and temperature,” explained David Phillips in an interview.
“The wild swings in temperature have had nothing to do with climate. It’s about where the winds come from.”
The recent warming trend, for example, was caused by breezes blowing in from the southern United States.
“This thaw did not come out of our chimneys and exhaust pipes,” said Mr. Phillips. “It came out of Colorado.”
