The change is reportedly connected with the speed of the Gulf Stream, which has shrunk in half in just the last couple of years. Polish scientists say that it means the stream will not be able to compensate for the cold from the Arctic winds. According to them, when the stream is completely stopped, a new Ice Age will begin in Europe.
Please do some damn research.....wow you people stun me

Gulf Loop Current Stalls from BP Oil Disaster: Global Consequences if Current Fails to Reorganize

Umm, -40 in Calgary in early November, people stuck of 24 hours on a highway in Ontario due to a snowsquall...and as the poster I was replying to said, rain rain and more rain in the maritimes (since it's mid-December shouldn't that be snow in your opinion?). Those seem like extreme conditions for this time of year and I've lived all across the country, I'm just kind of glad we get a real white Christmas this year.
.thankyou for doing some proper research finallly!!!!!!!!
....Siegfried Schubert of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., and colleagues used a computer model developed with modern-era satellite data to look at the climate over the past 100 years. The study found cooler than normal tropical Pacific Ocean surface temperatures combined with warmer tropical Atlantic Ocean temperatures to create conditions in the atmosphere that turned America's breadbasket into a dust bowl from 1931 to 1939. The team's data is in this week's Science magazine.
These changes in sea surface temperatures created shifts in the large-scale weather patterns and low level winds that reduced the normal supply of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and inhibited rainfall throughout the Great Plains....
The model showed cooler than normal tropical Pacific Ocean temperatures and warmer than normal tropical Atlantic Ocean temperatures contributed to a weakened low-level jet stream and changed its course. The jet stream, a ribbon of fast moving air near the Earth's surface, normally flows westward over the Gulf of Mexico and then turns northward pulling up moisture and dumping rain onto the Great Plains. As the low level jet stream weakened, it traveled farther south than normal. The Great Plains dried up and dust storms formed.
The research shed light on how tropical sea surface temperatures can have a remote response and control over weather and climate...

No; I'm stating no such thing. But, your "authority" attributes the decline to something other than BP; face it.
Second; this thread is entitled "jet stream problems."
How pathetic that we change back and forth at will with no support, only to avoid direct refutation of an untenable premise.
So, where's the evidence that the BP spill affected the jet stream?
Where's the evidence that the BP spill "stalled" the Gulf loop?
Where's the evidence that the BP spill "stalled" the Gulf stream?
Do not cite a blog, wiki, or Youtube. Cite a publication with at least a little credibility. Show some objective measurements that can be verified by a third party. You cannot.
