    But what does the increase of flow really signify?

    On the other hand no attention of course to articles about the large excess accumulation of ice in the mainland of Antarctica: http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/abstract/1110662v2

    Speaking of Atlantic gulfstreams, there is a positive correlation between general Sea Surface Temperatures and storms. Due to the confirmation bias mechanism everybody "knows" that global warming "causes" more and more hurricanes.

    This put things in erspective:

    Anyway the former speculation has lead to the resignation of the IPCC specialist on Hurricanes:
