Gulf Stream Altered by BP Oil?
This is a huge news story.
If it turns out to be permanent, it will be one of the worst disasters of our time.
The Gulf Stream has stalled.
The Gulf stream is like a literal river of warmer water that flows up from the Gulf of Mexico and along the eastern seaboard of the US and then over to Britain and up toward Ireland . It is the reason for Bermudas warm weather and palm trees in Ireland!
Without it life would become almost unlivable on the coast and in Britain, etc due to extreme cold.
The oil now on the Gulf bottom has stalled and altered the Gulf Stream . To what extent remains to be seen but it is not good.
How did it alter it? Oil and water do not mix and oil can alter the way a stream flows.
Read the story. It is scary to say the least.
Let's hope it turns out to be nothing more than a scare.
