Bob Whitewood, climatologist with Environment Canada, said the results aren’t unexpected.
“Clearly what we’re seeing in Canada is an increase in temperatures throughout the year, mostly in the winter months,” he said. “And what it’s showing is a warming that is above the global average.”
The greater average warming in Canada is in line with climate change model predictions of greater temperature changes in the Arctic regions, Whitewood said, and confirms climate scientists have a good understanding of the phenomenon.
