“Atlantic conveyor belt – still going strong and will be the day after tomorrow“. Anthony Watts hints that he now knows that what Steven Goddard presented as a discarded climate change prediction for the UK was really just a movie dramatization.

It seems one requires a deluge. The IPCC are not expecting a deluge of freshwater into the N. Atlantic, rather a steady flow.
