In short, its usually too cold for lightning.

Paraphrasing:

The atmosphere is thicker at the Equator than it is at the pole. It grows gradually thinner as you travel north - which is why Tornado Alley is perfect for tornadoes, and why Tropical Storms thrive in specific latitudes (along with other reasons).

But, the atmosphere near the poles is too shallow to support thunderstorms. Thunderstorms need height to generate energy and become thunderstorms. We all it towering cumulus when it is tall - or even growing - but not tall enough or active enough to produce Lightning.

If we are recording lightning within 300 miles of the North Pole, that means the atmosphere is expanding seasonally (or being drawn north by jet stream flow) to allow for storms to form further and further north - which means there is more warm air further north to expand the atmosphere.

The Arctic climate has seemingly gone off the rails this summer. There is no longer any sea ice present in Alaskan waters, with Bering Sea ice having melted out beginning in February, and ice in the Chukchi Sea already pulling back hundreds of miles north of the state.

Alaska had its hottest month on record in July. Wildfires are burning across the state, and fires in Siberia have sent plumes of dark smoke into the Arctic, where soot particles can land on the ice and snow and speed up melting.

So, since the left basically thinks that Trump invented global warming, that is a lot to have happened in less than 3 yrs!

You can have lightning any time in any season.

The positive charge from the ground connects with the negative charge from the clouds and a spark of lightning strikes.

Based on real science, this thread will die a quick death

I surprises me that you believe a newspaper that is owned by a Russian Oligarch.


BTW it's mid summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

Who and how much will be decided larer; right now we just need to commit to more taxes to "fix" the "problem".

Here is how you can tell it's fake: They don't want to put equal hard limits on everyone; they want taxes.

Now, if a food for children were causing the death of kids due to chemicals added, would the solution be a tax in order to dissuade the use of those chemicals?

America and Americans could give all their money to the Climate Alarmists and nothing they do would impact the climate.
