Death Of Winter? Jet Stream Crosses Equator In Unprecedented Event, Weather Chaos Predicted [Video]

Is the "death of winter" coming because of an unprecedented change in the earth's jet stream? Some scientists and meteorologists seem to think so. Scientists have recently witnessed an event they are saying could be the "end of seasons as we know them" on our planet, according to a report by RT.

So, what's happened that has got so many people so concerned? Northern Hemisphere jet streams have crossed the equator, and what that could mean to weather patterns isn't fully understood.

Indeed, Northern Hemisphere jet streams have completely crossed the equator and merged with jet streams in the Southern Hemisphere. This so-called "death of winter" jet stream anomaly has never before been witnessed by meteorologists or scientists, as the equator's warm air usually provides a barrier between the Norther and Southern Hemisphere's jet streams.

"Both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere consist of jet streams made up of either warm moist air or cold dry air."

Beckwith calls it a "global climate emergency" and says that it could have terrifying, profound and deadly impacts on the global human population.

"Welcome to climate chaos. We must declare a global climate emergency."

"It's the very picture of weather weirding due to climate change. Something that would absolutely not happen in a normal world, something, that if it continues, basically threatens seasonal integrity."

According to Scribbler, the "death of winter" scenario could take place as a result of the new jet stream pattern causing summer heat in winter and winter cool in summer, effectively erasing the seasonal weather patterns we're accustomed to.
