I wouldn't be surprised if there is some sort of 'global warming' agenda behind this.
While there are such reports of global warming there are also respected scientists saying there is an impending ice age.
Generally, there appears to more EXTREME weather around the globe that could account for an increase in mean temperatures annually.
There appears to be much more extreme winters and drought / wet summers. Here in the UK and other places in Europe we had aquifer droughts whilst
enduring the wettest summers on record, accompanied by flooding. The US had record breaking heat waves and droughts. Our winters here have been very
extreme, the Big Freeze where it was below freezing for weeks constantly, the Danube freezing over almost entirely last year.
My feelings are, it could be the position Earth is in in the Solar System, or more precisely, the Solar Systems' position in relation to the Oort
cloud and Kuiper Belt. The most likely reason for the mass extinctions on Earth is when traversing this area of space that is known for sending comets
Earth's way. This could somehow be affecting the protection offered by the Earth's protective electromagnetic shield and hence the climate.
ETA these extinction events are now known to have occurred over thousands of years, so the effects must have been gradual. For all anyone knows,
including scientists, effects of certain large space objects entering the solar system vicinity could have effects even if they are 63 light years
away. Even if the projected time scale for any effects of little known objects like Gliese 710 were 1.5 million years, who knows maybe it's effects
via affecting Oort cloud comets could have affects. Let's hope not,but science hasn't even the knowledge yet of so many huge things sitting in the
immediate vicinity of space.
Something is certainly affecting the Earth.
