Climate Adam: Could Climate Change cause an Ocean Tipping Point... Soon..?

Posted on 16 August 2023 by Guest Author, BaerbelW

This video includes conclusions of the creator climate scientist Dr. Adam Levy. It is presented to our readers as an informed perspective. Please see video description for references (if any).

The huge ocean current known as the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC - not the Gulf Stream!) shifts vast amount of water around the world. But scientists fear that by heating the planet and melting the Greenland ice-sheet, we're already slowing it down, with the risk that it could collapse - a potential tipping point with huge consequences around the world. And a new study (published in 2023) has tried to pin down what could happen, when. So what do we actually know about this current, does it have anything to do with the Gulf Stream, and is there anything we can do to protect ourselves?
