Why plants grow faster in warm weather than in cold weather?

In warm weather, the sun is usually present which is the source of light energy.

In the process called photosynthesis where light energy in plants is used to make their own food that's why plants grow faster. In cold weather, the sun is not present so there will be limited light energy.

DX has reformed, Check out monday night RAW!

Answerno because its illegal to copy other peoples trademark.............espacially if it got them famous Answeruthere could be a new d-x but some one from the orignal d-x will probley have to be in it Answerthere was already one that formed recently it was called "Evolution" Answerin my opioun at Summerslam this year, during the Hogan Hbk match triple H will interfere and DX will be reformed Answermy opinion on that is when you form a group there is only one original. for example the nwo started with hall, Nash and hogan. and even when the nwo had 30 people in there group it was still the best with the original 3. the same can be said for dx if they get back together they need chyna, micheals and hhh. dx will never be a group even with new member or not

How can you make a storm chasing truck?

Any vehicle can become a "storm chasing" vehicle. Most chasers will add electronic weather stations to the vehicle to give live temperature, humidity and wind information. Often times, chasers will have a HAM radio setup on the truck to talk with other chasers and the National Weather Service. I will stress that storm chasing can be extremely dangerous if you're not a professional with a meteorology degree! In order to chase is a safe fashion, you have to know tons of dynamic factors of the atmosphere to know where the safest viewing spot of the storm will be. This part of the storm will change between different days and different thunderstorms depending on storm structure and other properties of the upper atmosphere at the given time. That's why it's imperative to NOT chase UNLESS you have a meteorology degree and know all the details of how the storms will behave that day and how to determine signs of storm misbehavior in advance.

How much money do storm chasers make?

Storm chasers do not make a lot of money. Don't let this get in the way of wanting to be one, just you might want to know this.

Storm chasers spend a lot of money on equipment for the season. The first two or three seasons will be a big loss of money. Then again, some chasers make quite a lot. If you are famous, Reed Timmer, you will probably make a little more. Or if you film or capture data from a famous storm or record breaking tornado could bring in some extra cash.

Hope this didn't disappoint :( storm chasing might be more of a hobby. Notice, most storm chasers are usually meteorologists.

Do you have to have a license to be a storm chaser?

No, but if you're crazy enough to do this then it would be to your advantage to take courses, have the equipment, get your degrees and do it right so you can offer good concrete research. Why waste time just chasing storms if you can't offer some theories on them.

What good do snow storms do?

There are at least two benefits to snow storms. A snow layer insulates the roots of plants and the small creatures spending the winter in the ground from cold winter temperatures. It also benefits the same as rain, as it melts the moisture sinks into the ground for better plant growth in the spring.

Was there ever a tornado that came without warning?

Tornado warnings did not start being issued until the 1950s. Prior to that we did not understand tornadoes well enough to predict them, and forecasters were forbidden from mentioning tornadoes for fear of starting a panic. Even in the modern day a tornado occasionally slips through the cracks. One of the most notable examples came on December 31, 2010 when an EF3 tornado struck the small town of Cincinnati, Arkansas without warning, killing 4 people.
