Climate change expected to make turbulence stronger and more frequent

Thursday, 4 May 2017

Climate change is expected to affect your life in some surprising ways in the coming decades. From http://suratha.lk/hotels-near-parx-casino/ to lowered sex drives, raising the planet’s temperature by continued greenhouse gas emissions has wide ranging impacts — but did you know that global warming may also make your plane ride significantly bumpier?

There is a growing amount of research that shows that as the planet warms from climate change, the second half of this century will see an increase in turbulence, especially along the heavily-traveled transatlantic routes in the Northern Hemisphere (like routes between Europe and North America).
“Climate change is strengthening the north-south temperature difference that drives the jet stream,” according to Dr. Paul Williams of the University of Reading in the UK.
