"Scientists discuss how strongly a warming Arctic is implicated in extreme weather" via @skepticsc…

Implying that the jet stream pushes weather systems around the world is a little like the plumb pudding model of an atom. It was fine until the solar system model explained a few more characteristics of atoms and this was fine until the sub orbital model explained even more. In fact, the jet stream marks the location where Hadley cells come together and the jet streams form at this junction high in the sky. Between the Polar Hadley cell and the Feral cell is a rising wall of air and between the Feral cell and the equatorial Hadley cell a falling wall of air. Surely these walls of air are what is pushing weather systems and the upwhelling and downwhelling is marked by the jet stream. It may sound like nit picking but perhaps we will achieve deeper understandings just as when each atomic model was upgraded. All this is powered by rising heated air at the equator and falling ...
