Is it just me, or is turbulence getting worse?

Science, son. You should get yourself some.

That is true, however fractions of a percent change aren't exactly going to be perceptible. This is why the predictions of the 2005 hurricane season continuing year after year haven't come true, but we have set some new records here and there (which also could be due to lack of samples). What it does show is confirmation bias is a very real thing. Climate change is real, too, however this hardly proves it.

You and I both studied philosophy in undergrad, so let's let professionals discuss this one:

DTW has been dry in the 60’s and PHX has been rainy, flooding and in the 30’s the last week.

Everything is completely fine! :)
40 and rain in ANC a couple weeks ago.

im wondering when folks up here (AK) will finally stop saying “sure is a weird winter we’re having” and realize this is the new normal...

This whole week in ANC has been in the single didgets. Shoot when we landed last night all the UPS and FedEx planes were popsicle.

So is it your assertion that warming climate change will NOT cause more extreme weather in either direction?
What? How in the world did you ever put those words in my mouth.

I questioned someone who thinks COLDER than average temperature is LESS STABLE.

If'n ya'll can't figure out what's wrong with that sentence, keep on keepin on with the BRO science not my job to educate imbeciles.

I feel like moderate turbulence is becoming more and more common. This winter at least, it's been rare that I haven't experienced it at least once a trip, sometimes even every day. I've also had two bouts of borderline severe this year. Obviously if the atmosphere is getting warmer it's going to become more unstable.

Is it just me ???
NO, in fact Delta has stated they no longer experience turbulence. Saw it on 60 minutes or something like that.
