Dr. Kevin Trenberth, the former head of the Climate Analysis Section of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, emailed me that “the study is plausible.” Both Trenberth and another top climatologist, Dr. Michael Mann, agree that: This latest study provides further evidence for what many climate scientists have already surmised: that climate change is substantially altering the atmospheric environment in which thunderstorms and tornadoes form, increasing risk of major tornado outbreaks when conditions are ripe. Mann adds, “The findings, moreover, undermine the claim made by some contrarians that human-caused climate change will reduce tornado activity and risk.”

Increasing Tornadoes can be a problem we created by altering the way energy flows through the crust of the earth. Fracking and excessive mining of high metallic mineral bodies might alter patterns. The energy flow through the earth does not just happen at the north and south poles, those are the major ones. There are dipoles all over the place, also things insulate the current from exiting in places. Oil could also lubricate the plates so they slide smoother but the natural gas could also cause some secondary problems.
I think they should investigate how energy flows through the crust better before fracking the hell out of everything. But they probably don't want to look at this, just blame the tornadoes on climate change.
I wish I could find actual evidence that proves this wrong, but all I find is an avoidance of testing this particular subject, because of the negative effect on the economy and societies.
This is a way of expressing very dilute concentrations of substances. Just as per cent means out of a hundred, so parts per million or ppm means out of a million. Usually describes the concentration of something in water or soil. One ppm is equivalent to 1 milligram of something per liter of water (mg/l) or 1 milligram of something per kilogram soil (mg/kg).
Scientists can study Earth’s climate as far back as 800,000 years by drilling core samples from deep underneath the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica. Detailed information on air temperature and CO2 levels is trapped in these specimens. Current polar records show an intimate connection between atmospheric carbon dioxide and temperature in the natural world. In essence, when one goes up, the other one follows.
