It’s actually more Global Weirding — weird weather like the enormous floods in normally dry australia, like hotter summers and colder winters. As the world heats us, it disrupts the Gulf stream, the current of warm water that goes from the Gulf of Mexico, along the east coast, up past the UK and the west coast of europe, touching at Murmansk in Russia. Because of this warm current, those regions don’t experience the freezing temperatures of say North Dakota or Poland or Siberia. But if the current weakens or breaks down...

I believe you are confusing the gulf loop current with the atlantic gulf stream current. The gulf loop current is quite small and insignificant when it enters the atlantic ocean -like a fraction of a percent of the gulf stream current. The gulf loop current is no warmer than the gulf stream current. Ocean currents fluctuate with the climate. Both currents are cooler and weaker right now because the climate is cooler. Although they affect large areas as you pointed out, they are like el nino in that they are secondary effects of overall climate.

South America had a very cold, record breaking winter last year and is not affected by the gulf currents. Similarly, the gulf currents are not the cause of the Northern hemisphere’s cold winter. They just aren’t helping to moderate it as much as they do in warmer years because they’re also cooler.
