  1. Climate weirding, they’re beginning to call it. The extreme localized weather events that result from a warming atmosphere.

    For example – the extreme snowfalls you’ve been experiencing the past two winters, snowfalls my Mom doesn’t experience not even a hundred miles north and slightly west. The result of the North Atlantic Conveyor collapsing, because the glaciers on Greenland are melting. This has happened before (ice-dam above what is now the St. Lawrence Seaway), and from the geological record we can infer happening now.

  2. I grew up in a bit southwest of Milwaukee, WI, and I don’t recall tornadoes as being something we worried about. But in southwestern WI they were factors.

    I also have the impression that tornadoes used to be seen more in open areas and, for whatever reason, seemed to stay away from built up urban centers.

    I don’t now if my memory is correct — but tornadoes, strong, huge, fiercely powerful are sure hitting urban areas now.

    Is that just a factor of more built up areas?? Or….?
