BERLIN: A German environmentalist has warned that the end of the “Gulf Stream”, a massive ocean current, could lead to unbearable and deadly cold in North America and Western European countries.
Remember that the “Gulf Stream” is a large, powerful body of water in the Atlantic Ocean that carries warm seawater from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean, which flows off the east coasts of the United States and Canada. Taxes reach the shores of Western European countries (including the United Kingdom).
Due to the Gulf Stream itself, the intensity of both heat and cold in the countries of North America and Western Europe does not increase much.
Due to the Gulf Stream in cold weather, the relatively warm seawater does not allow the coastal areas of North America and Western Europe to become colder.
According to the US Agency for International Development (NOAA), if it were not for the Gulf Stream, the UK would be covered with snow for most of the year due to its remoteness from the equator. The same is true of coastal areas in the continent of North America that are very far from the equator.
So far, experts have discovered that the Gulf Stream’s power has dwindled, but it was considered a natural cycle and it was said that the Gulf Stream’s strength would gradually return to normal in the coming years.
But Nicholas Boers, an expert at the Postdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Postdam, Germany, after careful analysis of available sea and temperature data over hundreds of years, says that the last 100 Irregularities and gradual weakening of the Gulf Stream during the year are not the results of natural processes but of human activities.
In their research, the Bowers examined changes in ocean currents using eight different indices of the Gulf Stream.
Research journal “Nature Climate Change” in the published date articles and pustdym Institute Related Press weakness in Gulfstream has been feared and irregularities are asking potential of such a change, as a result, accelerate the Gulfstream Speed may appear in case of slowdown.
“We need to integrate our environmental models and observations to find out how soon or how late this will happen,” Boers said.
According to current ecological models, if the situation continues like this, the Gulf Stream could end up to 2300. But new research from Boers suggests that this opportunity may be far ahead of our previous estimates. However, more detailed and careful research is needed.
