The Stilling

All over the world, the wind is slowing. Bit by bit, low-level land wind speeds have been decreasing since reliable records began in the 1970s. It is called "the stilling".

Wind farms in Russia might struggle especially!

The latest theory is the Jetstreams are changing course and that is affecting the winds at ground level.
