Flights have become bumpier due to an increase of clean-air turbulence, which is invisible to airplane radar. It has increased 50% in the past few decades and is expected to increase over 100% more in the coming decades. Why?

Clear-air turbulence results from chaotically swirling air within jet streams, which are used by airlines to minimize travel times. Warming atmosphere intensifies and increases this turbulence, causing bumpier flights. Over the last forty years, turbulence has grown by 55% worldwide, and a further 100-200% increase is predicted in the next 30-60 years.
