    Gulf Stream causing ice age

    Forecasters say this winter could be the coldest Europe has seen in the last 1,000 years.

    The change is reportedly connected with the speed of the Gulf Stream, which has shrunk in half in just the last couple of years. Polish scientists say that it means the stream will not be able to compensate for the cold from the Arctic winds. According to them, when the stream is completely stopped, a new Ice Age will begin in Europe.

    • The most probable cause is because the Gulf of Mexico Loop current was destroyed when Odumbo dumped millions of gallons of banned toxic chemicals on it to break up the BP oil spill.
      This Loop current used to transfer warm water into the gulf stream and now it no longer does.
      Other countries had the equipment to skim the oil off the surface, but our fine government didn't want to know just how much oil was spilled, which would have destroyed their buddies BP.

        Since comparative analysis with past satellite data until may 2010 didn't show relevant anomalies, it might be therefore plausible to correlate the breaking of the Loop Current with the biochemical and physical action of the BP Oil Spill on the Gulf Stream. It is reasonable to foresee the threat that the breaking of a crucial warm stream as the Loop Current may generate a chain reaction of unpredictable critical phenomena and instabilities due to strong non linearities which may have serious consequences on the dynamics of the Gulf Stream thermoregulation activity of the Global Climate.

        Sentiment: Sell

    • Your quote is from 2010.

      I don't believe in "Global Warming" for one second, but I also think information refuting it should be current, or it should be stated that it was 2 1/2 years old.

      • OSLO — The Gulf Stream carrying warm water to the North Atlantic slowed about 10 percent in the Little Ice Age from 1200 to 1850, said a U.S. study published on Wednesday that may give clues to the effects of modern global warming.


        The report suggested natural shifts in the current might have affected climate in past centuries.


        The Gulf Stream carries waters from the Gulf of Mexico and boosts temperatures in northern Europe by between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius (9 and 18 degrees Fahrenheit) compared with similar latitudes in Siberia.


        Driven by winds and the earth's rotation and pushing heat towards the poles, the warmth it carries is equivalent to 2,000 times the electricity generating capacity of the United States.


        "The strength of the Gulf Stream was about 10 percent weaker during the Little Ice Age," David Lund, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, told Reuters.
