The next Ice Age could take only weeks to engulf Britain. Scientists say the last great disruption to the Gulf Stream 12,800 years ago took only a couple of months to trigger a massive plunge in temperatures across Europe.
Scientists confirm unexpected Gulf Stream slowing.
The rubber duckies were tossed into a hole in Greenland's ice by NASA three months ago as a way to track how the polar icecap is melting. So far, however, they haven't seen signs of any of them.
Not to worry, just ask the corporations and their mindless servents and they'll tell you that none of it is real. There is no climate change. They know cause they saw the emails.
6 months of data is not enough. this could just be a seasonal shift.
Upper North Atlantic mixed layer already 0.5 C colder and fresher than in any winter since the inception of Argo.
During glacial times, reduced circulation caused the climate to cool.

It stopped.. For 8 days...
During the month of November 2004, the Gulf Stream was said to have stopped for ten days. Scientists were puzzled by this behavior. Scientist Harry Bryden of the National Oceanography Center, declares, "We'd never seen anything like that before and we don't understand it. We didn't know it could happen." Lloyd Keigwin, a scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution described the event as "the most abrupt change in the whole [climate] record". Kiegwin adds, ""It only lasted 10 days. But suppose it lasted 30 or 60 days? ... How can we rule out a longer one next year?". However, the whole affair was the result of measurements showing that the meridional overturning circulation actually seemed to have slowed for a while.
