” It happens to be just that area for which climate models predict a cooling when the Gulf Stream System weakens (experts speak of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation or AMOC, as part of the global thermohaline circulation). That this might happen as a result of global warming is discussed in the scientific community since the 1980s – since Wally Broecker’s classical Nature article “Unpleasant surprises in the greenhouse?” Meanwhile evidence is mounting that the long-feared circulation decline is already well underway.”
More evidence that the AMOC is slowing down. The consequences of this have been well documented by Professor Guy McPherson on his blog guymcpherson.com and Paul Beckwith @ PaulBeckwith.net.
