Significant new research findings indicate that a new ice age may be starting sooner than anyone expected…
CLIMATE change researchers have detected the
first signs of a slowdown in the Gulf Stream — the mighty ocean current
that keeps Britain and Europe from freezing.
They have found that one of the “engines” driving the Gulf Stream —

less than a quarter of its former strength.
weakening, apparently caused by global warming, could herald big
changes in the current over the next few years or decades.
Paradoxically, it could lead to Britain and northwestern and Europe
undergoing a sharp drop in temperatures.
