You might want to mention the fact that it is more accurate to call it Global Climate Change -- and some have dubbed it Global Climate Weirdness. Any unbiased observer would call the "summer" that we have been having here in New England pretty weird...extremely cool and very damp. I think we have had about 3 or 4 sunny days in the last 2 months. Yesterday, parts of eastern central Massachusetts got 4 to 8 inches of rain in about two hours...pretty frickin' weird.

I've been searching for current info on the relative strength of the Gulf Stream current, and all I'm getting is that it is definitely weakening. It actually stopped for about 10 days in November 2004, and the number and strength of the thermohaline columns that drive the current at the northern end.
Sincerely, Neil
