I brought this up over the Summer during "global warming" threads and the children laughed.
You know that the OP is about the upper atmosphere, right?

Yes. A comet impact would have a dramatic effect on climate.

a reply to: Bluntone22>>> Its science so don't expect the global warmers to want to accept it as fact. We're getting a few inches of snow here today in Pa before it turns over to rain. Up state could get a foot of snow. I know. When its hot its global warming, when its cold its weather.
We wobble about in space like a drunk sailor every 7 years my part of the world goes into the arctic circle i have seen -52c and regularly live through -20-30 in the winter the old folk used to tell me how mild it was then and how bad it was when they were kids , all those stories checked out when i saw old photographs from a elderly clients of mine like Canada, Scotland can have cold weather and mountaineers fear the cairngorms more than everest i have seen 20+ foot snow drifts ,but snow is getting rare these days and the sun is now not the same shade as when i was young

This purely anecdotal but it’s cold here has always been cold, will probably keep being cold. Might even get colder apparently

Last winter sure there was ice but not the two previous winters. And last winter wasn't even close to some I experienced in the 80's and 90's.

What a load of BS the lakes were FULL of ice..more than in quite awhile..coldest winter in almost 10 years last winter...was brutal.

The last decade stands out like a sore thumb! It has had 29 major impact northeast winter storms with NO previous 10-year period with more than 10 storms! In Boston, 7 out of the last 10 years have produced snowfall above the average 43.7 inches.
2014-15: 110.6″ Greatest On Record Back To 1872
Additionally, the trend for fall snow across the northern hemisphere has been increasing, defying the forecasts over the last two decades for snows becoming an increasingly rare event. The 10-year running mean of the Boston area snowfall has skyrocketed to the highest level since snow records were kept and that goes back about 145 years! Fluctuations in the temperature regime and annual snowfalls are a function of about 25 global factors including changing oceanic oscillations mainly sea-surface temperature anomaly locations which impact atmospheric conditions creating certain jet stream configurations plus others such as solar activity and irradiance, geomagnetic activity, volcanism, etc.
If you cherry pick your data. If you actually show the past 20 years, not so much. I wonder why he did that.
The article goes on to say the average winter Temps are falling around 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit for every 10 years
The greatest warming has been happening in the Arctic region and that can produce a weaker, less stable jetstream that allows frigid air to dive farther south to mix with the warmer oceans to trigger more potential snow events.
