Weird Winter - March Madness
Posted on 22 April 2012 by Rob Honeycutt, grypo
Here's the latest video creation from Peter Sinclair and Climate Denial Crock of the Week. In my own opinion this is one of the strongest videos Sinclair has produced yet. In this episode we are treated to interviews with Dr. Jeff Masters from Weather Underground, Paul Douglas from Weathernation TV, Stu Ostro from the Weather Channel, Scott Mandia professor of Physical Sciences, and Dr Kevin Trenberth from NCAR.
This video does a great job of explaining the how and why of the recent March heat wave in the US.
In Part II of "Weird Winter", several scientists discuss the recent research that links the decreasing Arctic sea ice to changing jet streams which causes profound effects on mid-latitute weather in the Northern Hemisphere. Last week, SkS reposted Jennifer Francis' Yale essay on her work and its implications.
