Climate change and ocean currents in flux

https://www.theguardian.com/environm...say-scientists

Quote: The Atlantic Ocean circulation that underpins the Gulf Stream, the weather system that brings warm and mild weather to Europe, is at its weakest in more than a millennium, and climate breakdown is the probable cause, according to new data.

Further weakening of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) could result in more storms battering the UK, more intense winters and an increase in damaging heatwaves and droughts across Europe.

Scientists predict that the AMOC will weaken further if global heating continues, and could reduce by about 34% to 45% by the end of this century, which could bring us close to a “tipping point” at which the system could become irrevocably unstable. A weakened Gulf Stream would also raise sea levels on the Atlantic coast of the US, with potentially disastrous consequences.

But we have to listen to clowns that deny anything scientific

Thanks for the heads up, Chicken Little.

"Climate breakdown" is second cousin to 46er meltdown.

If we are back to climate that means the pandemic is almost over.

Of course it's almost over. It ended the minute Biden was certified on January 6.

Apparently, some of his own comrades in Congress think so, as well.

it seems 'climate change' is no longer the correct phrase ... now it is 'climate breakdown'




and I am surprised it has not been mentioned before, but 'climate breakdown' is RACIST

Not in our lifetime, another Chicxulub crater will happen someplace and the planet will be on ice for a very long time.
