Myth #3. But how can global warming exist when it’s still cold?
Global warming means the Earth’s average surface temperature is increasing, but that doesn’t mean every place will be impacted equally by it. While it’s true that certain areas, such as Earth’s poles will experience temperatures rising significantly, other regions nearer to the equator will experience milder changes.
But that doesn’t mean there won’t be cold days or low temperatures, because there will. In fact, climate change causes heatwaves and extreme weather conditions, such as storms and hurricanes, which will be more intense and last longer.
But it depends very much where you live. New York will have longer winters with a lot of snow, while the U.K. will likely experience more rain. But on average, temperatures will rise all across the globe.
