NASA Scientists: A Strange Thing Is Happening In The Stratosphere - Digital Journal

A change in the wind circulation pattern up in Earth's stratosphere has got NASA scientists baffled. Having been observed predictably for 60 some years, this quasi-biennial oscillation surprised everyone when westerly winds effectively blocked the downward descent of easterly winds. So far NASA cannot comment on whether this was a one-time anomaly or a portent of climate change. And when we think of portents, we think of Pondering Miracles, Medical and Religious. Drawing on the parallels of belief between medicine and religion, Jacalyn Duffin causes us to not only reevaluate what elements comprise miracles, but to accept that they are indeed a fact of life.
