Ash cloud pattern result of Climate Change

It seems, according to the New Scientist magazine, that global warming is partly to blame for the pattern of the ash cloud that stopped planes flying over most of Europe last week.

The Jet stream has weakened causing it to kink, this is no bad thing in itself, but it allows a stream of wind to push down over Europe from the far north. This is of course where Iceland is. So the cold, while sunny, few weeks we have been having may be the same reason the ash is here too. As the article linked to the picture explains it might give us a few cold winters here in Europe, again caused partly by Climate Change.
