I know it may not seem strictly relevant to this forum to touch on current climate change, but here goes anyway. It seems certain that our man-made activities are contributing to climatic instability, but I do not buy into the exclusive obsession with greenhouse gases as being critical, especially as historically the CO2 rise FOLLOWED the rise in temperature. On the other hand there seems to be much evidence that the Jet Streams, four high speed tunnels of air flowing from West to East and located at the tropopause, driven by solar heat and the rotation and axis of the earth, themselves drive the weather below. Until 60 years ago, though doubtless variable, they were at least relatively undisturbed natural phenomena. Then we started to insert aircraft into them and this has continued increasingly as bigger, more numerous and faster commercial aircraft systematically hunt them while flying from West to East, and studiously avoid them while traveling from East to West. Newton would surely have agreed that since the jet streams are being used to change the flight of aircraft, there must be an equal and opposite effect of these jet aircraft on the flight of the jet streams. Is it commercially too inconvenient to ask for the answer to a simple scientific question; what effect are aircraft having on the jet streams, and if it is significant how might it be mitigated?
