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.
