Similar to team-assembling montages in action films, the American Association for the Advancement of Science comes together once a year to discuss developments and discoveries in the field of science, pouring each other green tea and playing mirthful pranks on the younger PhDs. Predictably, the topic of climate change was put on display this year, as 84% of AAAS members believe that humans are causing global warming…According to research performed by Professor Jennifer Francis at Rutgers University, this newly meandering jet stream is likely to continue taking a longer time to pass over Europe and North America. As temperatures in the Arctic warm, the jet stream slows down and finds difficulty pushing over obstacles in the atmosphere. Francis claims this year’s bitter winter is a result of this, and that in future, "We can expect more of the same and we can expect it to happen more frequently."
