    Global warming pause

    So lots of new data...not really matching the models...

    Lots of new theories...

    Still believe all of global climate science is known.

    We should get really sneaky while AGW is looking the other way.

    Evidently, someone missed the memo.

    Flights have become bumpier in the past 44 years, and are set to get worse as climate change affects the jet stream, a study has shown. Photograph: Pictorial Parade/Getty Images

    Climate change will lead to bumpier flights caused by increased mid-air turbulence, according to an analysis by scientists of the impact of global warming on weather systems over the next four decades.

    The increasing air turbulence results from the impact of climate change on the jet streams, the fast, mile-wide winds that whistle round the planet at the same altitude as airliners. The shifting of the jet stream over Europe has also been blamed for the UK's wash-out summer in 2012 and frozen spring this year.

    The rough ride ahead joins other unexpected impacts of climate change, which include dodgier wi-fi and mobile phone signals and even slower marathon race times for athletes.

    Paul Williams, at the University of Reading who led the new research, said: "Air turbulence does more than just interrupt the service of in-flight drinks. It injures hundreds of passengers and aircrew every year. It also causes delays and damages planes, with the total cost to society being about 100m each year."

    The study, which used the same turbulence models that air traffic controllers use every day, found that the frequency of turbulence on the many flights between Europe and North America will double by 2050 and its intensity increase by 10-40%.

    "Rerouting flights to avoid stronger patches of turbulence could increase fuel consumption and carbon emissions, make delays at airports more common, and ultimately push up ticket prices," said Williams.

    All it's going to take is one good volcanic eruption like Krakatoa or Tambora and Wham, mini ice age.

    The OP is not creative, and neither is your excuse to post funny pictures.

    However, the evidence in my post posses some very severe consequences. I think we really need to get to the bottom of this AGW thing, once and for all.

    That's one nasty looking troll. Maybe this could be a troll thread about trolls.

    You are not gonna get to the bottom of anything on the OC here...unless your searching for the bottom of the IQ curve.
    This thread will only serve to bring out the Dum-Dums.

    At the risk of sounding like a dum-dum, debating climate change is a pointless mental masturbation session that will likely never end until an actual disaster strikes this planet and wipes us off the face of it.

    You'll likely never convince either side that it is wrong. Such is the way with nearly blind faith.
    Trying to win hearts and minds, but willing to stomp them if necessary.

    Well since yer laid up from that foot surgery, Mookie, ( and all the best to your healing on that) I'd say that makes you a natural for the job!

    It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it. Or do they?

    RC if your going to be calling out AZ trolls at least be accurate. There may be a few AZ socks here about's but the ones you are referring to are way off.

    Hmmm, perhaps it's a double blind... someone else doing a very good job of diverting attention... I don't have your savvy DJ, I can only go by evidence 'on the ground', and it is compelling...
