Farmers of the region are facing challenges: November and December brought much rain, so lot of the seed was just rotting in the soil. Don't tell me about climate change, tell me about denial. While all sorts of experts are talking, fees for house insurances will certainly raise.
The temperature difference between the Arctic and lower latitudes is one of the main sources for the jet stream. This differences are causing winds. Also increasingly "freak-winds". So, because the Arctic is warming so fast, that temperature difference is getting smaller, and in consequence the fuel for the jet stream is getting weaker. When it gets into this pattern that winds are occasionally rather brutal then balanced the seasons as we know them spring, summer, autumn and winter tend to be more just summer and Winter without spring and autumn.
