The ocean current that gives western Europe its relatively balmy climate is stuttering, raising fears that it might fail entirely and plunge the continent into a mini ice age.
I haven't really looked too far into the science of this report, so it might be hyped, but because the implications are so serious, I thought I ought to put it up.
I'm posting this for my friend, Grandmaster H, who enjoys all things weather and disaster related. (go ahead and leave a comment H, you can do it anonymously.)
UPDATE: The Guardian has a longer article on the same study. And a BBC piece. And a NYTimes piece. Okay, without doing the homework, I'm guessing this is a pretty sound study, but I still haven't read the original. If I read anything weird in it, I'll update.
