MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota is warming up faster than most of the country, according to a new study.

A study by the group Climate Central ranks Minnesota ninth among the states in warming trends over the past century.

Climate Central promotes lower carbon emissions.

Pete Boulay, an assistant state climatologist, isn’t surprised by the figures. He says they reflect warmer winters caused, in part, by less snow cover.

“You know, I used to plug in my truck all the time. And last year I didn’t plug it in once. And that’s something that we’ve seen more of in recent winters” said Boulay.
