Atlantic Ocean's slowdown tied to changes in the Southern Hemisphere

(University of Washington) Unlike in the movies, and in theories of long-term climate change, the recent slowdown of the Atlantic circulation is not connected with melting of Arctic sea ice and buildup of freshwater near the North Pole. Instead, it is connected to shifts around the southern tip of Africa,
