I mentioned the return of the “the oceans ate my warming which will soon stop the ocean circulation” meme the other day, now we get
The conventional understanding of global warming is that the planet will simply become hotter until all the ice melts, the sea level rises and forests turn into deserts and deserts into forbidden wastelands where nothing at all can survive. It’s a frightening prospect that has many wondering why people don’t take it more seriously.
Global warming will be catastrophic, but it will not necessarily render the planet uninhabitable. And some regions will find global warming a boon, while others will find it disastrous. But the problem remains that nobody knows for certain what’s going to happen.
Under the most accurate models for global warming, some places become cooler,
and weather becomes more chaotic, less predictable. Beyond this, it is impossible to say precisely what will happen. There is widespread agreement that polar ice will melt and contribute to sea level rise, a phenomenon that is already being observed.
But what happens when all that ice melts? Does the planet just keep getting hotter? According to one model, the opposite may occur, the northern hemisphere might freeze.
Essential to this transfer of heat is the salt water. However, a massive melting of freshwater ice has the potential to drown out and collapse this flow of salt water. If the current collapses, then the heat transfer from the tropics to the North Atlantic will halt, with disastrous consequences for Europe.
Even since the idea was proposed, climate change scientists have dismissed it. The idea was used as the premise for the move “The Day After Tomorrow,” which itself was filled with scientific inaccuracies and absurdities. Of course, that was a Hollywood blockbuster and not a documentary. But the idea has received little attention. After all, it sounds bizarre that a warming climate could suddenly turn into an ice age.
It’s not necessarily that they’re wrong. This is something that has been known for decades and decades as a possibility of big changes to the AMO. The problem here is mentioning a freaking movie, and blaming this all on Mankind. Yet, these same hysterics refuse to give up their own use of fossil fuels and go carbon neutral.
