Maybe someone can help me out here. Is all of the changing of the weather due to the weakening of the Gulf Stream? Please correct me if I'm wrong.
All the warm water comes into the Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf Stream circulates the warm water up to England and northern Europe. Now, since
the Gulf Stream has lost most of it's strength, England and Northern Europe will get a much cooler climate over say, the next 10 years(like
Labrador?). All the warm water will now stay around the Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico. I'm not an expert on the weather, but if the water warms up
drastically, the number and strength of the hurricanes that form in this region will increase correct? Now this is where I get alittle fuzzy on the
coming Ice Age. So the cooler weather from up north will work its way down, while the warmer storms work their way north? In turn we get alot of snow
and ice. Is this basically what could/will happen?
