Britain and Europe are heading into a winter unlike any seen in our life times. This is because the gulf stream is gone. The gulf of Mexico BP oil spill killed the gulf loop which is the driving force of the gulf stream. In the past it has brought warm water and air over to the coast of Ireland and the UK, which is the main reason we don't already suffer winters on a par with n.Canada and Russia. Well, the gulf stream is gone - and we are heading into a winter that this country simply cannot cope with. We have already seen a horrendous start to the UK winter with more set to follow next week, with forecasters saying its going to be here til Xmas (that's as far as they forecast folks! this is here for the long haul)

A group of scientists dare to think the unthinkable and examine whether the Gulf Stream 'conveyor', the vast current of water that keeps us warm, could be cut off.
