Kink in the Jet Stream and Climate Change Spur Extreme Weather (Brian Wullivn, Eric Roston, Bloomberg) USofA27.Jul.2018
Brian Wullivn, Eric Roston, Bloomberg: Kinked, buckled, stuck or stalled, it doesn’t matter how you describe it, the jet stream -- the ribbon of wind that circles the Earth -- is doing strange things. The calamity list includes wildfires across Scandinavia, Greece and California, record heat in Texas, Japan and Africa and flooding rains along the U.S. East Coast that could last another week. The world is hotter in general, which means when temperatures spike, they do so off a higher baseline. Is all of this due to mankind's use of fossil fuels?
The climate alarm media, the bureaucracy and the Green Energy industry follow an agenda which is served by inflating any short-term weather event into a climate calamity. They should take a long-term view. Earth’s climate is never still – it is always changing, with long-term trends, medium-term reversals and minor oscillations. Humanity is best served by those who use good science to study geology, astronomy and climate history searching for clues to climate drivers and the underlying natural cycles and trends hidden in short-term weather fluctuations.
The key role of Carbon in the cycle of life is as a source of food and energy and in the atmosphere.
