ERG Alum Zeke Hausfather Cited by NY Times Regarding Global Warming

Recent ERG Alumnus, Zeke Hausfather (PhD ’19) was quoted in the New York Times last week, with two correspondents reaching out to the climate change expert for commentary.

“June 2019 will likely be the warmest or second-warmest June in all the global temperature data sets since records began in the mid-1800s,” Hausfather said in an article regarding recent heat wave data. “This further boosts an already near-record-warm start to the year, putting us on track for 2019 to be the second or third-warmest year on record.”
