I want the wet weather to end. It's making life difficult for lots of people. Sadly, it seems that long spells of bad weather may keep coming. Usually the jet stream pushes away weather in its path, but it seems to be slowing down. Why?

It's too early to tell for sure, but it could be because of a loss of Arctic sea ice which is warming our atmosphere. I hope researchers get more data on the impacts of climate change soon so governments will take action. I feel powerless against floods and storms.
