Story


Quote:Confirming work by other scientists using different methodologies, they found dramatic short-term variability but no longer-term trend.
A slow-down - dramatised in the movie The Day After Tomorrow - is projected by some models of climate change.



Quote:The satellite record going back to 1993 did suggest a small increase in flow, although the researchers cannot be sure it is significant.
"The changes we're seeing in overturning strength are probably part of a natural cycle," said Josh Willis from Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California.

So, not only is it not slowing down, but the trend since 1993 is that it may be increasing (although they're not sure about that, either.)

A very instructive quote. They don't know what they know, or what they don't know. Nice to see someone state that.
I think this is true and of lot more than climate research.
