6:42 am
speaking, "is the rock in the stream. that big read blob is, over the course of the examination, sitting where the jet stream and storm track would be," swain described. it's the physical cause of california's drought. swain published an academic paper on monday that is the first to connect climate change with the formation of that ridge. the study is based on a comparison of two types of model atmospheres: the one we have today with carbon emissions compared with others showing how it would have been before cars, coal plants and modern agriculture. >> i don't think there is any evidence that this is a permanent condition, although what we have shown is there is an increased risk that this sort of extreme pressure pattern will occur. >> so what does this study by a 25-year-old mean to the rest of us? a confirmation, mostly. >> this study is a peek into the mechanism behind california's water crisis, further proof that it has a cause. >> from stanford university, wayne freedman, abc7 news. >> well, nothing coming up to help with that situation anytime soon. >> no, unfortunately. in fact, we are going to cool down just a little bit. but, boy, it's going to take about four or five days for some of us. today right here you will feel a little bit cooler from our exploratorium camera. it's beautiful this morning. the sun up after 7:00 and in the
