But Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer smacks down warmist jet stream claims as 'silly:
Spencer: 'There is frequently cross-equatorial flow at jet stream altitudes, and that flow can connect up with a subtropical jet stream. But it has always happened, and always will happen, with or without the help of humans.'
'United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has predicted that climate change will continue to make the Middle East hotter and drier. That will mean that, instead of hundreds of thousands of refugees heading towards Europe, there could be tens of millions.'
Appearing on the Today show, Monday, to promote her new shark movie, actress Blake Lively implied that the reason her character is in peril is global warming. Talking to Savannah Guthrie about The Shallows, she asserted, “Because of global warming, sharks are pushed closer to shore. And she's attacked and you think of a shark attack being in the deep ocean, but it’s almost scarier when shore is right there.” Lively seems to use the global warming talking point in every interview promoting the film. In the June Marie Claire, she repeated, “Because of climate change and global warming, what was once in the deep is now in the shallows.” Interesting, the U.K. Daily Mail reported in November of 2015 that global warming might make sharks smaller and less deadly. In July of that year, the paper said climate change will increase shark attacks.
