Loop Current Changes in Temperature
Normal loop current flow
The loop current “stall,” caused by the BP oil spill, appears to be effecting the temperature and flow of the loop current.
This post is based on a report by Dr. Zangari, of the Frascati National Laboratories (LNF) – National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN)
The Loop Current is a clockwise flow that extends northward into the Gulf of Mexico and joins the Yucatan Current and the Florida Current to the Gulf Stream.
The BP spill:
The Loop Current which is integral to the Gulf Stream current has been severely messed up due to BP oil spill (which these experts don’t believe has been fully stopped).
Since three months ago, we have seen the severe winter storms hammering Europe among other places – a result of reduced moderation of temperatures that was caused by the BP fiasco.
Currently, the Loop Current is “stalled.”
There is a 10 degree drop in temperature in 2010 that has been measured at 3 time points, and compared to 2009.
Zangari’s concern is that should the Loop Current fail to restart, dire global consequences may ensue as a result of extreme weather changes and many other critical phenomena.
The repercussions of which could trigger widespread droughts, floods, crop failures and subsequent global food shortages.
Approximately 1.8 to 2 million gallons of Corexit have been spayed in the Gulf of Mexico.
This is a critical fact as current satellite data of the Gulf feeds, tell Zangari that the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico has clearly stalled.
This due to environmental impacts from a man-made introduction of oil, which were then compounded by other agents (Corexit and so on).
Worse yet, these real-time satellite data feeds offers clear evidence to Zangari that a new artificial system has been generated in the Gulf in a remarkably short period of time.
It is this new and unnatural system which has changed the viscosity, temperature and salinity of the Gulf’s seawater, thereby causing the Loop Current to stall.
These CCAR data maps offer researchers like Zangari a continuous stream of markers for sea and ocean dynamics: surface height, velocity, temperature.
A fourth marker that Zangari has found to be especially helpful, are chlorophyll infrared emission maps.
This is because they show him real-time changes in the shape of the Gulf Stream.
The YELLOW ARROWS below show the “break” in the loop current.
Instead of one continuous ( red – warm) area, we see a division of the red area, and cooler waters ( green-blue) incorporated into the region.
In addition to changes in ocean velocity, Zangari is reporting an equally troubling analysis with sea surface temperatures. The data published by Rutgers University is from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data maps. Dr. Zangari re-elaborates and checks these data maps using his own calculus system called SHT (patented in 1999.)
Temperature Comparison – August 2, 2009 / August 2, 2010

Notice the change from red (warm, 89 F) to pink (cool, 79 F)
Temperature Comparison – July 20, 2009 / July 29, 2010 – Notice that there is LESS red color ABOVE the yellow line

Taken altogether, these four oceanographic markers began taking a turn for the worse, shortly after the Deepwater Horizon well explosion on April 20, 2010.
This rapid turn of events raised Zangari’s concerns about the Gulf’s Loop Current, and then on July 28, 2010 the worst case imaginable happened.
“The Loop Current simply stalled,” Zangari noted sadly “and we have no idea if it can reorganize itself, because now we’re dealing with troubling unknowns.”
Velocity and Temperature Worries
At present, Admiral Thad Allen is trying to assure Americans that the worst of the disaster has passed, and that the oil slicks have disappeared due to natural processes.
However the markers from oceanographic satellite feeds Dr. Zangari is studying tell him an entirely different story.
The millions of gallons of Corexit sprayed in the Gulf have given BP and the US government a convenient way to mitigate public concerns by removing the threat from sight.
The logic being that since the oil is disappearing, so is the crisis.
However, taking oil from the surface and spreading through the water column is not a PR matter. Instead, it has become a convenient way to cover up one massive mistake, with a tragically larger one.
Will This Stall Spread Into the Atlantic?
The importance of the Gulf Stream was brought to the forefront in the blockbuster film The Day After Tomorrow (2004) where the Gulf Stream stalled, causing temperatures in New York City to plummet from sweltering to freezing in a matter of hours.
Based on real science, the film showed movie audience how the Gulf Stream transports warm water from the equatorial regions of the Earth, along American’s Eastern seaboard and then across the Atlantic to Northern Europe.
Now, current temperature measurements for the Gulf Stream on the Atlantic Front (from 76 to 47 meridian) now appears to be about 10 degrees Celsius cooler than it was this time last year.
Consequently, a direct causality nexus has now been established, between the stall of the Gulf Loop Current and this new temperature drop in the Gulf Stream on the Atlantic Front.
For this reason, the focus of Zangari’s research is presently centered on finding signs of a return to the former natural equilibrium of the Gulf. Again, he stresses making predictions (pessimistic or optimistic alike) because “these phenomena are unpredictable because they are ruled by strong non-linearities.”
Nonetheless, we must ponder the question: What does this new nexus portend for our future?
To that, Zangari says “we can affirm that this system (the Gulf Stream) is changing in an unpredictable way, which may produce serious consequences on planetary scale.”
Effect on Europe
It would be a logical conclusion that if the waters of the Atlantic became cooler, so would the air above it.
This would contribute to cooler temperatures in winter for those in Europe close to the current.
Russia says it is expecting one of the coldest winters in its long history. It is already cold there in winter.
If the 10 degree drop in temperature continues for another year, this would put a heavy stress on northern countries in the Atlantic region.
They claim the leak has been capped off. Only time will tell.
My prayers go out to all those affected by this disaster.
This incident teaches us that man cannot be in control of this earth, because he makes horrible mistakes which affect the entire planet.
Only a perfect, holy, and powerful God should reign on this earth, because only He is perfect, and can bring nature back into harmony.
Instead of fighting over territory, power, money and possessions, man needs to submit to God and his righteousness.
If he does, he will be saved from himself, his biggest enemy.
