If this circulation shuts down, it could bring extreme cold to Europe and parts of North America.

"It’s one of those events that should not happen, and we should try all that we can to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as possible.".

A potential collapse of this ocean current system would have severe consequences around the globe, authors of the new study said. »
