What will happen to the planet if the Global Conveyor Belt stopped?
By:Jesus ,Mario ,Edgar
Process of water currents
The constant motion in the ocean is caused by thermohaline (thermo = temperature; haline = salinity) currents in the deep ocean and wind-driven currents on the surface.
The effect on the climate
It helps balance climate. The warm water from the Tropical Atlantic moves poleward where it gives up some some of its heat to the atmosphere.
What would happen if it shut down?
Without the vast heat that these ocean currents Europe's average temperature would likely drop 9 to 18°F, Such a dip in temperature would be similar to global average temperatures toward the end of the last ice age roughly 20,000 years ago.



Prevention
Use energy wisely
Don't pollute
Recycle toxins correctly
Don't dump waste down sink
