I don't know if it's related but this article about severe turbulence on a flight from Houston to Ireland made me think of a thread I did some yearts back concerning how climate change would lead to more violent turbulence in the skies.

Here's the post:

Climate change=More turbulence

A flight from Houston to London with more than 200 passengers and crew had to make an emergency landing in Ireland after severe turbulence injured a number of those on board. A spokesperson at Shannon Airport confirmed to ABC News that United Airlines Flight 880 en route from Houston had a medical situation and landed safely this morning. Ambulances were at the scene upon arrival and the injured passengers and crew members were taken to a nearby hospital. "A total of 12 people were transported to hospital, nine adults and three children. Two of the 12 were crew members," Limerick's University Hospital said in a statement, adding that the main injuries were "soft-tissue injuries, minor head injuries and lacerations." One patient, a flight attendant, is still being assessed, United Airlines said in a statement, and 11 have been discharged. They are on their way back to Shannon Airport to continue their journey to London. Nikki Hartin Boriack was one of the passengers. Speaking to ABC News, Boriack said there was a sudden drop, long enough for her to think about it. "There were a lot of little kids on the flight, so we are worried about them," Boriack wrote on Facebook, adding: "People literally we flying through the plane. ... We were trying to hold down the girl next to us to buckle her in." The cause of the turbulence is unknown at this point.


Of course there has always been turbulence as long as there has been flight but the fact that violent turbulence is predicted as a result of climate cvhange and then this happens raises my eyebrow.. I like to wait and see if these episodes of turbulence become more frequent in the coming months/years. I think it's interesting. What says ATS?

Wait a minute.. your suggesting a plane landing due to turbulence is because of climate change..

I've been reading stories like this for 50 years, so I think it's going to be hard to correlate it to any climate change unless it starts happening much much more frequently (as you said).
