Because You Use An Ice Maker, ‘Climate Change’ To Make Droughts And Floods More Common

This is all your fault

Drought and floods will become more common as global warming causes weather to ‘stall’

Scorching summer heatwaves and floods are set to become more extreme in the northern hemisphere as global warming makes weather patterns linger longer in the same place.

According to a study published by Nature Communications, growing temperatures in the Arctic have slowed the circulation of the jet stream and other giant winds, affecting pressure fronts across continents.

This summer, parts of Europe were hit by heatwaves and wildfires including Sweden, Greece and Spain.

The research found that high and low pressure fronts are becoming “stuck”, while the weather is increasingly less able to moderate itself.

These extreme systems could turn sunny days into baking heatwaves, tinder-dry conditions into wildfires, and rainwater into floods.

The research paper warned that the mixed colliding pressures could lead to “very extreme extremes”, that happen when abnormally high temperatures linger for an unusually prolonged period.

“Could lead”

And there’s still no proof that this is mostly/solely caused by mankind’s release of greenhouse gases. But we can fix it with a tax/fee!

    What physical proof would you find convincing?

    Arctic ice volume is fifth highest in the DMI record and temperatures have been below the ERA40 average for almost the entire summer.

      Do you have more detail on your claim?

      Here’s what the DMI (Danish Meteorological Institute) says about Arctic ice on their website:

      Since the 1970s the extent of sea ice has been measured from satellites. From these measurements we know that the sea ice extent today is significantly smaller than 30 years ago. During the past 10 years the melting of sea ice has accelerated, and especially during the ice extent minimum in September large changes are observed. The sea ice in the northern hemisphere have never been thinner and more vulnerable.

      from NSIDC (National Snow & Ice Data Center):

      After declining rapidly through July, sea ice extent decline slowed during the first two weeks of August. A new record September minimum is highly unlikely. Our 2018 projection for the sea ice minimum extent falls between the fourth and ninth lowest in the 40-year satellite record.

      Through the first two weeks of August, ice extent declined at approximately 65,000 square kilometers (25,100 square miles) per day, slightly faster than the 1981 to 2010 average of 57,000 square kilometers (22,000 square miles) per day.

      Temperatures at 925 hPa (about 2,500 feet altitude) were generally 1 to 5 degrees Celsius (2 to 9 degrees Fahrenheit) above average over much of the Arctic Ocean for this period, with the area just north of Greenland reaching 5 to 7 degrees Celsius (9 to 13 degrees Fahrenheit) above average (Figure 2c). Below average air temperatures persisted over the Kara Sea, 1 to 3 degrees Celsius (2 to 5 degrees Fahrenheit), and the Beaufort Sea, 1 to 5 degrees Celsius (2 to 9 degrees Fahrenheit).
