Air travel already can be frustrating, but now that global warming has shot in, it could become even worse. For a plane to get off the ground in really warm weather, it may have to carry less passengers. Global warming has caused the air temperature around the world to rise drastically. These warmer temperatures can affect how airplanes fly because air molecules spread out more as the air warms. This generates less lift under an airplane’s wings as it is rolling down the runway. So if airplane tickets go up for some reason, this could be why!
Some particular microbes that grow on glaciers or/and ice sheets can make the snow have a pink color. This pink color can make the ice and snow look pink. The alga Chlamydomonas nivalis seems to be what is causing this crazy incident. This pink algae appears in the summer and spring. This algae soaks up sun much quicker than the regular snow so the glaciers and snow melts much faster. This is a big danger because there are animals in need of that snow and ice and without it, they could die.
Global temperatures change from day to day and season to season but average temperatures have increased exceptionally quickly lately. One of the main reasons for this is that humans have been releasing crazy amounts of pollution that may hold in the sun’s warming rays. Most people have thought climate change and global warming won’t happen till the future, but recent studies from scientists are showing that the planet is changing now and that humans are a big part to blame. Scientists say if you conserve the time of using your car and polluting crazy things into the air, the Earth’s global warming will slow down.
At the end of 2017, every single U.S. state had gotten a snowfall, even in the warmest states. What is causing this is the jet stream. The jet stream is a river/stream of air in the upper atmosphere. December’s wacky snow went all the way to the Mexican border! Though this winter is crazy, it was very rare.
