Recently, climate in some parts of the states and some countries are changing. The latest news is the negative degrees temperature and the very cold atmosphere in some states.
- Global warming
- Solar flare
- Tilting of earth's axis
- Nuclear test underground
- December 21 effects
- alignment of Planets
- End of the world
- Natural phenomenon
- No worry when we can pray
Recent cold temperatures in the United States and other countries are not a change in climate. They are a change in weather. What we are experiencing right now is an arctic outbreak caused by a warming of the stratosphere high above the North Pole.
Normally, a low-pressure area around the North Pole known as the Polar Vortex keeps the frigid air of the Arctic in its place. When the stratosphere warms, however, this vortex weakens and breaks up, allowing icy Arctic air masses to flow south. This is why we currently have bitter temperatures in North America and Europe.
Why this stratospheric warming occurs is largely a mystery. Some meteorologists say it is due to depletion of the ozone layer during the winter, but this has not been proven conclusively.
Climate change due to excess atmospheric carbon dioxide may be another factor, but I have not seen any studies linking the two.
The rest of the "insights" you cite, from solar flares to the December 21 hoax to the alignment of planets, are not responsible for the sudden stratospheric warming.

I recently did some research on global warming. I found out that the USA is emitting over 25% of the world's polluting gases. These include sulphur dioxide which causes acid rain, and nitrous oxides which causes health problems. I find this very alarming, as the USA, as a developed country, is...

I came upon this news that a study showed majority of the Americans do not believe humans caused global warming / climate change. Any idea if this is true? What about the rest of the world, what do we believe?This is the website - http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2 … -activity.

Why do you not believe in Global Warming/Climate Change?I have no doubt our earth is warming at an alarming rate. One of the reasons I think this is because of the photo I included with the question. Otzi--the Iceman--was frozen over 5000 years ago and has remained that way through all sorts of...

Is it a natural reoccurring Earth cycle? Or is it due to human productivity? I want to hear your opinions on this ongoing controversy.

I'm confused. I've read and heard arguments that global warming is really just part of a natural temperature change process for the earth. I've also read that it's completely man-made? Is it one or both of these? Please explain.
