ELLSWORTH, Maine — According to a Maine-based environmental advocacy group, there is evidence that Maine has been experiencing warmer temperatures and more “extreme precipitation” events in recent years.

In a prepared statement released Oct. 16, Environment Maine said increases in extreme weather have been attributed by scientists to global warming. More severe weather events can be expected in the future, the advocacy group said, if carbon pollution emissions that are fueling global warming are not reduced.
