Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'd like to see a bit of analysis of this by other climate scientists.

The ones I've seen (at realclimate.org )tend to dismiss claims of a change in the Gulf Stream, because they don't see the evidence for it.

Recent discussion there is very focused on atmospheric circulation to explain the global warming/European winter cooling coupling, particularly with reference to the polar "hot spot" (the North Pole is warming much faster than the rest of the earth, there are probably boomerang effects going on).

I think it's a bit early to hang the European winters on the Labrador current.
