HUGE parts of the USA and Europe, including Britain will be exposed to freezing temperatures if the Atlantic Ocean Current continues to weaken.
A shock study has revealed the current is weakening and is at risk of collapsing. If it does, temperatures in parts of Europe could become almost unbearably cold.
The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Current (AMOC) carries heat from the equator northwards, partially contributing to the heat of northern Europe’s climate.
However, while previous studies had found it is not affected by a spike in atmospheric carbon dioxide, new research suggests otherwise.
