And were the recent hot American summers that stirred popular interest harbingers of green house summers to come? Among the great driving forces of weather and climate is the temperature differential between equatorial and polar regions; convection currents coupled with the rotation of the earth are engines of atmospheric circulation and, ultimately, ocean circulation.
