Flipflop back to global cooling prophecies?

From Eric Worrall at Watt’s Up with That?:

The alleged weakening of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation appears to be triggering a growing amount of speculation about abrupt cooling, like the plot of the movie “The Day After Tomorrow”. More.

We’ll see. Good thing I didn’t put away my parka. Please. No more persecution of dissenters.

I read things like this and wonder if this is willful stupidity. If the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation breaks down, no GLOBAL cooling is expected. At most there will be reduced heat flow into the far North Atlantic and relative cooling of the European north west. But the heat that would no longer flow to Europe will just go somewhere else. GLOBAL temps will not be reduced because the warm water that would have gone to the north will remain in the middle Atlantic which will become even warmer. And to be clear, climate change denialism has never been prosecuted; it is not a crime. Fraudulent statements to fossil fuel investors and to investors in related industries are being investigated; those would be crimes. sean s. sean samis
