So let me see if I've got this right?
The Gulf Stream conveyor slows, or stops, and brings on a new ice age. (you said it's already snowing in Houston)
But hey! Hang on a second. Isn't all that CO2-e in the atmosphere going to produce run-away global warming?
Sounds like that dessert we sometimes see in Asian cuisine - the deep-fried ice cream ball!
Now, how does that work?
Regards to all
I guess the honest answer is I don't know
but I also think the scientists are ignorant too
The Glaciers in Greenland are MELTING at double the rate ...that is fresh water flowing into the Atlantic and Arctic ocean
I don't think CO2 is the only reason...I think HAARP could be part of it too.....Alaska
CO2 is a contributing factor on the acceleration
Most scientists involved in research on this topic agree that the culprit is global warming, melting the icebergs on Greenland and the Arctic icepack and thus flushing cold, fresh water down into the Greenland Sea from the north. When a critical threshold is reached, the climate will suddenly switch to an ice age that could last minimally 700 or so years, and maximally over 100,000 years.
And when might that threshold be reached? Nobody knows - the action of the Great Conveyor Belt in defining ice ages was discovered only in the last decade. Preliminary computer models and scientists willing to speculate suggest the switch could flip as early as next year, or it may be generations from now. It may be wobbling right now, producing the extremes of weather we've seen in the past few years.
What's almost certain is that if nothing is done about global warming, it will happen sooner rather than later.
I think the conveyor belt is moments away from stopping
We had no hurricanes in our gulf this summer and we have snow
Sometimes Mother Earth has to handle these things herself
I went to hear the Dalia Llama speak and his words were quite prophetic
I will share this with you
The lesson mankind learns in this generation will be
What one does in one country will affect everyone in the world
Oh by the way
He said it is a hard lesson to learn but we will learn it or die
