Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is an important difference between explaining the European winters with the Labrador current and measuring a decreasing Labrador current. If - as  understand this report claims - the Labrador current can be measured directly and has been decreasing continually since the 1970s, then sooner or later this will translate into colder winters in Europe. Climate having lots of feedbacks, it might not be what we see now, but it will come so winter planning is in order.

Then again, I would like to see this report discussed by relevant experts to better understand how it measures the current and what the strengths and weaknesses are with that approach.
