How does global warming cause more severe and colder winter storms.
The poles warm faster than the equator. Relatively more energy at the poles means a less gradual temperature gradient. Because the air, water and land are warmer nearer the poles, the more energetic winter storms penetrate further towards the equator. They carry cold polar air deeper, resulting in lower temperatures in the moderate zones. The greater energy at the source of the storms results in stronger winds everywhere.
The equatorial regions still accumulate more energy than in the past. Thus summer and fall hurricanes and storms are stronger and more destructive. There is no upside to global warming.
