left wing propaganda, everybody knows that paying someone (al gore) for carbon credits will stop all of this from happening,Ocean currents distribute heat around the Earth. The Gulf Stream current current directs warm water to northern Europe from the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf Stream makes temperatures in Great Britain and the rest of northwestern Europe warmer than they otherwise would be. As global temperatures rise, Arctic ice melts and massive amounts of fresh water pour into the North Atlantic and slow the Gulf Stream down. By slowing or stopping this ocean current, global warming actually would cool Europe down dramatically. If other ocean currents were disrupted, the entire planet could experience the same cooling effect and cause an ice age.
