Many scientists say that to avoid a doubling of carbon dioxide concentrations, energy efficiency must be increased drastically in the near future. Such divergence/convergences lead to general ocean circulation (discussed in the Ocean Circulation lecture).

Today, for example, very few Samis are involved in any way with reindeer—other, perhaps, than taking tourists on a sleigh ride, or allowing themselves to be photographed next to one of the animals. This jet circles the Arctic region, separating the polar vortex and the midlatitudes, and acts as a barrier to latitudinal transport of air—isolating that stratospheric air over the Arctic.
