Thank you for recommending this post to our Best of feature. Interesting video on the cause of Weird Weather from Dr. Jennifer Francis; a research professor at Rutgers University. The talk was given at the University of Victoria in BC Canada. You may wish to skip to around minute 20 as it starts slowly... - AndrewXnnThanks, Andrew! Dr. Jennifer Francis offers a cogent, step-by-step analysis of the factors that have led to Arctic Amplification and the consequent weakening of the jet stream and resulting weather patterns. Although, admittedly, one must have patience to view the entire presentation, Dr. Francis recaps what more than a few climatologists have noted. What I appreciate most is that her presentation is based on actual observations, not modeled behavior. She notes, near the end, that there's work to be done on the models to incorporate what we're now observing.Her presentations go a long way towards explaining what we're actually observing. Anyone truly interested in UNDERSTANDING the interplay between the increase in GHGs and hemispheric weather phenomena should take the time to watch her presentations in their entirety.
