Scientists stated that weather condition or climate change could be adjusting the jet stream in a way that prompts heavy flooding, dry seasons, heat waves, and other intense climate effects. It appears that man-made climate change is not only prompting more intense climate or weather by usual mechanisms, including warm temperatures and additional air moisture.

Pennsylvania State University’s Dr. Michael Mann and his partners announced that climate change is straightforwardly affecting intense weather events by means of changing the jet stream’s movement, Phys stated. Jet streams, strip-like air currents and flows across the northern part of the globe up to 7 miles over Earth’s surface, are driven by conflicting cool polar air and tropical climes. The path of these extreme air streams forms weather design, like, pressure systems that prompt hot or cold spells.
