Oceanographic satellite data now shows that the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico has stalled as a consequence of the BP oil spill disaster. This according to Dr. Gianluigi Zangari, an Italian theoretical physicist, and major complex and chaotic systems analyst at the Frascati National Laboratories in Italy.
He further notes that the effects of this stall have also begun to spread to the Gulf Stream. This is because the Loop Current is a crucial element of the Gulf Stream itself and why it is commonly referred to as the "main engine" of the Stream.
The concern now, is whether or not natural processes can re-establish the stalled Loop Current. If not, we could begin to see global crop failures as early as 2011 (it's already being reported in Flordia)
Anyone have more news on this item, I didn't see anywhere on the web that the gulf stream is "repaired", it forms part of the Oceanic conveyor belt that has been shown to be directly correlated to ICE AGES when it slows to a crawl .... well now this Italian physists says the gulf loop is broken .... and yup Florida and Europe are plunged into a really cold winter. Why no mainsteam news on this ? Is this real for real ???? If it is we are in big big trouble ......food shortages here we come. I so hope this is not the case.
