"Global Warming" may cause an abrupt North Atlantic "Ice Age" Northern United States, Northern Atlantic Ocean and Europe could switch in a 3 to 10 year period to extremely cold winters. The North Atlantic becoming less salty, "freshening" could shut down the Gulf Stream which keeps the North Atlantic region warm. Right now there is no evidence for cooling, only for freshening of the northern Atlantic Ocean.
