The problem with crying wolf and exaggerating is that it lends credibility to skeptics of climate change. They should stop telling us what'll happen in 50 years because their credibility is in tatters.

I'm convinced that that changes will happen. But blantant exaggeration also means thar I can't believe these predictions anymore, especially 50-year predictions.

There isn't much trans-Atlantic turbulence damage, so twice as much turbulence (if it happens) would only be about twice as much as not much, which would still be not all that much.
