Global Warming Has Made Gulf Stream Slowest in 1,600 Years, and That Could Impact Our Weather

If we do not rapidly stop global warming…

How? By telling the sun to stop cooling? Oh it’s already doing that.

“We are only beginning to understand the consequences of this unprecedented process –

But they have the cause down pat-Man made global warming.

A separate study, also released Wednesday in the journal Nature, claims the 150-year slowdown of the AMOC is a result of natural changes, not man-made climate change. But both conclude the slowdown is occurring, and it could impact our weather in the coming years.

For years, scientists have studied a spot in the North Atlantic Ocean that has bucked the trend of a warming world. Now, they know what impact this colder-than-average region is having on the Gulf Stream.

According to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature, the Gulf Stream is flowing at its slowest rate in at least 1,600 years, and climate change is the likely culprit. If this slowing trend continues, the researchers fear a shutdown of the Gulf Stream’s circulation is possible in the long-term, and that would have disastrous consequences, bringing rapid sea level rise to the East Coast, more extreme winters to Europe and numerous other side effects…

Some scientists who weren’t involved in the study agreed with the findings, but others said a lack of data left them skeptical of the study. MIT professor Carl Wunsch said the study’s “assertions of weakening are conceivable, but unsupported by any data” in an interview with the AP.

A separate study, also released Wednesday in the journal Nature, claims the 150-year slowdown of the AMOC is a result of natural changes, not man-made climate change. But both conclude the slowdown is occurring, and it could impact our weather in the coming years.

“If we do not rapidly stop global warming, we must expect a further long-term slowdown of the Atlantic overturning,” Alexander Robinson, a co-author of the second study, told the Guardian. “We are only beginning to understand the consequences of this unprecedented process – but they might be disruptive.”…

Might be? They don’t know what is going on but they know the solution. AlGoreani$m.
