Mother Nature must be really upset with us. As the effects of climate change multiply, she keeps delivering surprises, and not of the nice kind. The one piece of positive news for me is that it provides increased content for my posts.

Increased atmospheric humidity increases rainfall from all storms. It also has bad health effects in the world’s hottest areas. Smoke from wildfires are also hazardous to our health without good air filtration. Now a new negative effect of smoke above the tropopause is looming. This post is about these subjects.
