The latest satellite data establishes that the North Atlantic Current (also called the North Atlantic Drift) no longer exists and along with it the Norway Current. These two warm water currents are actually part of the same system that has several names depending on where in the Atlantic Ocean it is. The entire system is a key part of the planet’s heat regulatory system; it is what keeps Ireland and the United Kingdom mostly ice free and the Scandinavia countries from being too cold; it is what keeps the entire world from another Ice Age. This Thermohaline Circulation System is now dead in places and dying in others.

This ‘river’ of warm water that moves through the Atlantic Ocean is called, in various places, the South Atlantic Current, the North Brazil Current, the Caribbean Current, the Yucatan Current, the Loop Current, the Florida Current, the Gulf Stream, the North Atlantic Current (or North Atlantic Drift) and the Norway Current.

So of course, we're all going to die in an ICE AGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :eek:

Global warming mixed with an ice age could cause 4 distinct seasons. What shall we call them?:confused:

Gotta be Bush's fault!

Seriously, it happens every once in a while. And if the information is accurate, we're due for another ice age. Hey, it was predictable that it would happen. Not when of course, but that it would happen.

Look on the bright side. At least somebody over on DU pays at least a little attention to the physical sciences. Climatology in this case.

So much for AGW!!!!!!!!!!

Is spring, summer, fall, and winter still available?

18. Also from infiniteunknown.net...

"The US Military now KNOWS Mossad carried out 9/11 Attacks"

"Warmists may be winning the big grants, but they’re not winning the argument"

"Elena Kagan Blocked At Least 9 Obama Eligibility Lawsuits"

"GLOBE MAGAZINE: OBAMA BORN IN AFRICA! WHY HIS PRESIDENCY IS ILLEGAL"

Oh, and be sure to check out their pictures of all the top officials, including Obama, using the secret Freemason handshake, and flashing satanic devil horns. But put down your coffee first, to protect your keyboard.

DU'ers need to do a better job of checking sources.

Edit: holy fuck. The OP just added yowsa to their original post. Yowsa. Where the lead story is:
"Planet X, 2012 and More: How-to Prevent an E.T. Abduction"

Serioulsy, get this idiocy into the dungeon.One DUer decides to not leap off the cliff. (Hopefully because he was thinking, like I was, "The Gulf Stream is gone??? That's impossible")

22. I get that, Sid...but, also typical that truth gets lumped in with conspiracy to diminish it. But some have to cling to the ridiculous.

“We now believe we are much farther from that threshold, thanks to improved modeling and ocean measurements. The Gulf Stream and the North Atlantic Current are more stable than previously thought.”



After consulting 23 climate models, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said in February it was “very unlikely” that the crucial flow of warm water to Europe would stall in this century.

It's all the propellers on the ships pushing the water and changing the flow!

I don't see it being true. I've lived through enough "world is ending tomorrow" hysteria. I think humans love to imagine they are living in the "end times"

The earth's magnetic poles have switched 1000's of times in the past 4 billion years.

Who are they going to blame when that happens the next time?

A team of US Scientists have found evidence of it not slowing down, by using... SATELLITE.

It's a bullshit story. Nothing more.

I sit around for 8 hours a day looking at satellite imagery, I wish someone would throw some grant money at me.
