The video link "Understanding the Jetstream" to your right explains the basic meteorology behind the unusual spring weather that we have had not just this year but in recent years.
These weather patterns with more and later winter storms and wide fluctuations in temperatures in the spring are very likely, no, almost certainly going to be the norm. This is just the beginning of serious, costly and, if we do not act immediately and decisively, irreversible climate change.
Next, we could see changes in ocean currents including a disruption of the Gulf Stream that could send Europe into much colder weather, perhaps even a mini-Ice Age. Please access the following links for more information.
