We’ll always have prevailing winds, as long as there’s weather. Of course they may not remain the same “trades” we’ve known ...

effect on trades ...

WELL if it's in USA Today then it must be true!

Actually I think we should be more concerned with the effects of "Global Dimming" (and then it's effect on warming) for the trades as the amt of pollutants in the atmo change:

Well personally I'm ready for the "drying trend" in the Pacific North West.

On the brighter side, the NorthWest Passage is opening up, and as the sea level rises there'll be more draft. And plenty of mooring in what used to be coastal cities. "Venice"s all over.
