What bunch of BS fed to us by the "settled science experts" about "Climate Change" (remember when it was Global Warming????) no doubt looking for more "funding" for research.

"The scientists looked at the impact of stronger “wind shear”, a major cause of turbulence, on winter-time transatlantic flights. Wind shear refers to vertical or horizontal changes in wind speed and/or direction over a short distance."

What did I miss?
