"Jennifer Francis, Ph.D., Research Professor I, Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences, Rutgers University, speaks about the question on everyone's minds: why is the weather so crazy? And is it related to climate change?

In this presentation, Dr. Francis will explain new research that links increasing extreme weather events with the rapidly warming and melting Arctic during recent decades. Evidence suggests that Arctic warming is causing weather patterns to become more persistent, which can lead to extremes such as droughts, cold spells, heat waves, and some flooding events."

I'd say this is because of how much the polar vortex is shifting but it says there's no such thing as a polar vortex so I wouldn't have any idea why.

Jennifer Francis...
Evidence suggests that Arctic warming is causing weather patterns to become more persistent, which can lead to extremes such as droughts, cold spells, heat waves, and some flooding events.

I think hot cold wet and dry pretty much covers the weather anywhere. Wow, and people are just awestruck by her intelligence....sad.
Only 3 Oklahoma tornadoes this year. Lowest in recorded history. Just sayin.

You know, evidence suggest that having a credit card can lead to high cash flow, no cash flow, high debt, no debt, good spending habits and bad habits too. Wow, I'm a regular Rutgers genius.

OK, I've cut this down for you with just the key words so your head doesn't get too foggy with the lengthy read.

Evidence suggests that Arctic warming is causing droughts and flooding , cold and heat(hot
).


This sounds reasonable to you? I'm the crackhead?

That's too short you're confusing me.
Can you pad it up to an hours read, like the presentation?
(Spice it up with some charts.)

Go back and look at the video. At 4:10 into it she talks about when she was in school around 1984.

Paraphrased quote...
Weather information at that time was limited, hard to get, didn't mean much and was pretty much wrong most of the time.

Then she spends the next hour comparing this bad data with today's data.

You didn't see a problem there?

You could have at least done a drawing.
There's a thought have you regulars ever considered that?
Go radio silence one night and all sketch a cloud and submit that instead of jawing nonsense?

We're talking climate here not weather, but regardless, we've got good data now - but some people disagree with that, so who cares if we had great data back then - no doubt the talking point would be to deride it as 30 years old!

Anyway, maybe it was the lens - but I couldn't get over the size of her hands.

Almost right.

Climate is typically defined as something similar to 'weather over a long time'. This could be said to be the 'average' of weather, except that weather is not a numerical value.

Since climate is related to weather, this tends to imply a regional thing, since weather is regional in scope. There is no such thing as a 'global' weather, so there is no such thing as a global climate.

If only extreme weather events were so predictable.

They generally are, within 24 hours of the event.

The average of all meteorological variables in a given region over long periods of time. Can we agree on that?

Agree. Weather is a multitude of numerical values, which is why it is so ridiculous to try and pin any local change or event in the weather on ANY one factor, be it a legitimate player or not.

Sure. It's close enough a definition to how it's usually defined.

I won't even dignify that with a response.
