    I just want to mention the possibility that since so much de-industrialization of the US has occurred and shifted to China and asia in general (where corporations are free to pollute as much as they want), that the jet stream has probably shifted and can be causing all the changed weather patterns and freakishness.   I know people (US persons) who worked in China for a few years and had to quit their jobs finding work back in the US with another employer JUST so they could protect the health of their families.  They couldn't take it anymore.

      has probably been more affected by the arctic ice melt than moving manufacturing to China.  However the air quality there is quite bad, esp. in the cities.  My daughter and her family lived two years in Beijing and said just living there was the equivalent of smoking two packs of cigarettes daily.

        Enhanced warming of the Arctic affects the jet stream by slowing its west-to-east winds and by promoting larger north-south meanders in the flow. Predicting those meanders and where the weather associated with them will be located in any given year, however, remains a challenge.
