Global heating is shrinking and accelerating the jet stream

Times 24th Nov 2019, The jet stream – the powerful transatlantic wind that dominates British weather – is being shrunk by climate change, scientists say. It means that Britain is at growing risk of more violent storms in winter and searing heatwaves in summer.

Tim Woollings, associate professor of atmospheric physics at Oxford University, who has published a new book, Jet Stream,
said: “The planet is warming rapidly due to humanity’s greenhouse gases. It
means the whole of the Earth’s tropical belt is likely to expand, pushing
the jet stream north so it shrinks in size and accelerates.”
