[Ed. – This sounds suspiciously like analysis by rectal extraction. The purpose of framing it this way appears to be nothing more than keeping the “warming/climate change” drumbeat going. The paragraph in bold below (emphasis added), while just precious, doesn’t seem to make any sense.]
“It was very definitely strange, especially now,” said study co-author Gabriel Vecchi of Princeton University. A century ago “it wouldn’t have been that strange. Things like this are becoming stranger.”
The study by the World Weather Attribution analyzed weather records dating back to 1880 and found the cold weather that hit a swath of the U.S. from Maine to Minnesota tends to happen once every 250 years. In the early 1900s, it happened about once every 17 years. Climate change has made such cold spells less common and less intense, the group said.
