Well it was actually an ice core scientist that first shared this Idea with me.
The flow of the current is enough to provide the flow of warmer water that will result in clouds and rain which are natural insulation blankets. Also the warmer seas don't reach huge parts of North America where there is freezing cold all the way down to Spain's southern position. Yet somhow it remains soft for Northern Europe.
The current cold however is said to be caused by changing air streams that caused the yet stream to positioned itself way south and cold air from the north is not running against it as it is a natural barrieredit on 12/12/2010 by Sinter Klaas because: (no reason given)

You don't see this very often do you ?? Snow getting towards the Equator !
A snowstorm whipped across the Syrian capital Damascus on Sunday, disrupting traffic but also bringing some relief from a drought which has gripped the country for the past four years. The UN estimates drought has affected around 1.3 million Syrians, 800,000 of them severely, in four consecutive droughts since 2006. The desert countries of Jordan and Egypt were meanwhile hit by sandstorms on Sunday as visibility deteriorated and temperatures continued to plummet.
I strongly believe that the suns output is very low just now and has been declining so its only natural that Mean temps will also drop.
