Under the heading above, Vladimir Choprin, in Moskovsky Komsomolets, wrote about the startling conclusions that scientists have reached that say the demise of Europe is likely.
The article reads: A group of German researchers from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research, together with colleagues from other countries, recorded a record decline in the speed of the warm Gulf Stream over the past millennium. Also, the results from the other side of the world are not encouraging. For example, scientists at the University of Washington and the Los Alamos National Laboratory and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have recorded an increase in freshwater content in the Arctic Ocean by 40% over the past twenty years, which promises the population of Western Europe and the United States bitter frosts in winter, and lack of rain in the summer.
Accordingly, we asked Alexei Karnukhov, a prominent researcher at the Bushino Federal Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, who developed in 1996 the model of relaxation of glaciation in the northern hemisphere, to comment on the situation, and he expected global warming to lead to the beginning of the ice age.
So what will be on our planet: cold or hot?
It’s not all about either this or that happening: either global warming or the Ice Age, there is no such alternative. Global warming is continuing and it is not going anywhere.
However, global warming could bring the Gulf Stream to a halt, and then a real ice age would come. So the weather today – snow and ice – will not be in February, but in June and July.
German scientists, who confirmed the data on the slowdown of the Gulf Stream, specified the period until the end of this century.
In my opinion, this might happen 30 years ago.
We live on a big climate bomb. The halt of the Gulf Stream, the “stove” of Western Europe, means the death of European civilization. The northern part will be covered by ice, while the southern part will turn into tundra. As a geopolitical reality, Europe will simply cease to exist. The average annual temperatures there will decrease by an average of 10-20 degrees, and the continent will become uninhabitable, let alone for agriculture.
