Analysis | Thanksgiving is warming up as human activities heat the climate – The Washington Post
In Philadelphia, for instance, the week of Nov. 22 to 28 has warmed nearly 4 degrees since 1950. That may not sound like much, but it’s the equivalent of Thanksgiving shifting two weeks earlier in the years during that interim. A number of cities, notably Minneapolis, St. Louis and Miami, are warming even more quickly. Thanksgiving week in Phoenix has heated up half a dozen degrees since 1950.
