Really cool new @saildrone  technology is going to help us better understand the Gulf Stream's role in climate change and for weather systems:

On Thursday, “Florida Man” Chip Hawthorne will ride his lawnmower from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico! will send all money raised to Habitat For Humanity. Chip will live stream his entire journey on State Road 50. Detailed video coming soon!

You can also see our animated version of the Gulf Stream, one of the mightiest rivers you will never see, carrying far more water than all the world’s freshwater rivers combined.

The Gulf Stream has shaped climate and history on four continents. Its currents swing west from Africa, influencing weather from Caracas to Miami to Europe. Some scientists believe that melting Greenland ice will tip the balance of hot and cold that defines the North Atlantic.

If the world continues to warm at the current rate and the Gulf Stream system shuts down completely, scientists say that the whole globe would feel the catastrophe.

The Gulf Stream is a massive invisible underwater river and has a major influence on global temperatures. Now, scientists fear it could be weakening, and the consequences of this could be disastrous. #environment  | #ocean  | #temperature 

Perhaps the most important piece in the @nytimes  today: There is some evidence, not conclusive, that melting ice sheets are slowing the Gulf Stream in ways that could have devastating and relatively rapid consequences for climate around the world:

Starry North Atlantic: The Gulf Stream in today's NYTimes looks like a Van Gogh painting.

Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation probably doesn’t exist after all. (That’s NOT the AMOC/gulf stream.) Shows how identifying slow, natural cycles can be really difficult.

Scientists are watching the Gulf Stream closely. Some argue that Atlantic currents are already changing, others that it’s too soon to tell. “It’s not at all predictable how bad things will be,” one oceanographer said. Read the story from @dotearth  here:

The Gulf Stream is among the mightiest rivers you will never see, carrying far more water than all the world’s freshwater rivers combined. Some scientists fear global warming is causing Atlantic currents to weaken.

Jaw-dropping interactive account in @dotearth  of the jaw-dropping trouble in the Gulf Stream. (If the world ends, at least the graphics will be intense)

A #USCG  Station Hatteras Inlet crew released 30 sea turtles back in the ocean. From smaller greenback turtles to a 132 lb loggerhead turtle, the crew drove 10 nautical miles out to sea to release the turtles in the warmer waters of the Gulf Stream current. #SaveTheTurtles  🐢

This baby turtle died with 104 pieces of plastic in its stomach. It is 1 of 40 a nature center in Florida has found with microplastics in their systems — likely from garbage that collects in the Gulf Stream. All have died. (Photo: @GumboLimboNC )
