Global warming and climate change have influenced our lives for many years now, but a new study showed that global warming can cause extreme cold winters. Although it might seem crazy, Global warming can cause cold waves in the atmosphere.
The warming and melting of the Arctic are actually causing the opposite for the U.S and U.K because it creates a jet stream that reacts. This jet stream may be responsible for the extreme cold winters in 2015 and 2014 in New York. In the U.K there were cold winters in 2011, 2010, and 2009.
Other previous studies showed that the jet stream goes on an irregular and erratic path it, causing cold fronts. These then dive down from the Arctic. This is what causes the extremely cold winters. On the other hand, when the jet stream is steady and even, winters are milder than they should normally be.
In the last 20 years, the winters have been getting more frigid due to the amplified jet stream. The extreme weather changes are the result of this phenomenon. The problem is that if the jet stream is not regular, it can bring freezing conditions in the U.K and the U.S. Another problem is that our body is not used to this difference between winter and summer because the summers are too hot and the winters are too cold.
Specialists are working on a new way of predicting weather in order to avoid any crisis. If people are aware of the weather changes, they know how they how to dress. Predictability is an important thing when it comes to the weather.
The weather forecasting needs to be more accurate so that people know what to expect. They will also believe meteorologists easier if the forecasting will be more accurate. Maybe if they realize that global warming is actually harmfull as they became more aware of climate change.
This study was made in order to show people that they need to prepare for extremely cold winters this year. Let’s hope that this winter is not as cold as scientists predict and that the weather conditions are going to be stable.
Do you think that it is strange that global warming is causing extreme cold winters?
