The fate of the Gulf Stream -- those warm, deep-ocean currents that flow from the Gulf of Mexico to northern Europe -- may play a pivotal role in a coming ice age, according to documentary filmmakers Nicolas Koutsikas and Stephan Poulle. Climatologists demonstrate how changing weather patterns and global warming could obliterate the Gulf Stream, which would leave London with a climate similar to that of Siberia.
