Unprecedented Storms of OUR Lives: Climate Bomb Mayhem // Published on Jan 8, 2018
Weather bomb. Bombogenesis. Cyclone Bomb. Terms for the beast that hammered North America’s East Coast, knocking iguanas out of trees in Florida, bringing ice floes from the ocean onto coastal Boston streets, and dumping feet of snow. Air pressure in the “eye” plummeted faster than most hurricanes (59 mb in 24 hours) to 951 mb (equivalent to a Category 3 storm). Climate change disruption of our planetary heat transport via atmosphere and oceans is accelerating; this is just the first few moves of the chess game.

New normal? NO. Just Act I of our planetary Play. The Arctic has warmed so much that our jet streams have fractured. Waviness has increased so much, that loops and swirls have broken free, creating a chaotic mishmash with pockets of low and high pressures. And thus a smorgasbord of bizarre weather: winter hurricane-like weather bombs, snow in the Sahara Desert, baking drought amping up wildfires followed by deluges causing mudslides in California, oven-like temperatures exceeding 47 C (116 F) in Australia…
