In this year global warming has caused a drastic increase in temperatures, which made this winter season much hotter than years before. Some studies have found that this increase in temperatures can have small benefits in America. According to an article by the Associated Press, the benefits can be related to the increase in physical activity by people who would be more inclined to leave their houses and enjoy the warmer weather outdoors. However, this global warming side effect will not be beneficial for everybody. In some states such California, Nevada, and Arizona these high temperatures will keep people inside their houses.
