S&F from me good post OP
Let’s be very clear here about this.
I AM SICK of the hyperbole and spin "Warming" "Change" "Anthropogenic" whatever the focus is, if the Gulf Stream stops ALL CURRENT LONG STANDING
WEATHER PATTERNS ON EARTH WILL CHANGE.
This isn’t about data here, or this report says, and only 20% of scientists say so and so, public hyperbole and spin to take your attention away
from the dangers.
It is impossible for the Gulf Stream to stop and all current historical weather patterns (since last mini ice age) not to be affected.
To even postulate that it would not has much effect is ignorant, it is like trying to say a football team's performance would not be affected much if
all the team lost a leg overnight.
It is ridiculous and very dangerous to hold and espouse that view. In addition to affecting every other climate system in the world and changing it,
it would also make most of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean almost an "ocean desert" as the rich nutrient water would not be driven from the
Greenland, Artic waters and rise up there for the ecosystem to feed of.
Rant over, if you guys research more you will find that in fact the Gulf Stream is at around 40% of the energy it used to have.
The actual physical evidence at the source can be seen by this current event that is taking place in part of the main driver for this entire
AFP 2 days ago
COPENHAGEN (AFP) — Greenland's ice cap, which covers more than 80 percent of the island, is melting faster than expected because of global warming,
a Danish researcher said on Monday.
The 1.8-million-square-kilometre (695,000-square-mile) ice cap, which accounts for 10 percent of the planet's fresh water, is losing about 257 cubic
kilometres (62 cubic miles) of ice per year.
Nasa is concerned too and has sent rubber ducks to try and save us:
When a sophisticated science probe failed to return any data about whether pools of melted glacial ice were showing up in the ocean, a NASA researcher
turned to a decidedly low-tech solution: a brigade of rubber ducks.
"We're a little frustrated right now," said Seelye Martin, the program manager for NASA's Earth sciences division. "The water has to go somewhere
but we don't know where."
So NASA is admitting they don’t fully understand the dynamics of the systems yet, modern technology cant work out the massively complicated and
interrelated climate of our earth, but yes of course "I have heard that man does not affect the climate, and also that it wont be that bad
Well guys enjoy watching your one legged team of footballer's attempt to play their game, do you think its worth betting on them winning though?
Doesn’t worry the government will use rubber ducks to protect you from the famine, flooding, biodiversity collapse and extreme climatic events.
Drivel , spin , manipulation and ignorance.
