– Decades Of Global Cooling Ahead (Ice Age Now, May 29, 2015):
A new study out of the U.K. predicts decades of cooler temperatures and fewer hurricanes hitting the U.S., says this article by Michael Bastasch.
(Excerpts) – Scientists at the University of Southampton predict that cooling in the Atlantic Ocean could lead to a global temperature drop a half a degree Celsius and may offer a “brief respite from the persistent rise of global temperatures.”
“Sea-surface temperatures in the Atlantic vary between warm and cold over time-scales of many decades,” said Dr. Gerard McCarthy, the study’s lead author. “This decadal variability, called the Atlantic Multi-decadal Oscillation (AMO), is a notable feature of the Atlantic Ocean and the climate of the regions it influences.”
