I think that the Climate Central item is not accurate in that the South is not among the states warming most. In fact, the southeast is among the areas warming least. here's a direct quote from Climate Control's site: The states that have warmed the most — whether you look at the past 100 years or just the past 40 — include northern-tier states from Minnesota to Maine and the Southwest, particularly Arizona and New Mexico. Places that have warmed the least include Southeast states, like Florida, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina, along with parts of the central Midwest, like Iowa and Nebraska.
