Blizzard disrupts press conference about early snowmelt

NOAA had planned a press conference in Washington D.C. yesterday to release the following statement:

“More and more, Americans are witnessing the impacts of climate change in their own backyards, including sea-level rise, longer growing seasons, changes in river flows, increases in heavy downpours, earlier snowmelt and extended ice-free seasons in our waters. People are searching for relevant and timely information about these changes to inform decision-making about virtually all aspects of their lives,”

Because of the blizzard, the press conference could not be held at the National Press Club and had to be conducted via telephone.
