"Drive by an oil or gas well pad, maybe out West, and it may not look like much. You’ll see a couple of storage tanks, some pipes, maybe a see-sawing pump jack.

For a different and more eye-opening view, fly over one of these industrial sites with an infrared camera."

"Scientists and economists at the University of California Santa Barbara, the University of Washington and Environmental Defense Fund spent the last two years developing the most comprehensive database on fisheries ever assembled. Using that, we were able to develop a model to see that with the right fishing approaches in place, we can increase the number of fish in the water, the amount of food the oceans produce and at the same time increase the incomes of the world’s 38 million fishermen and their families."

Insofar as the science ever supported the hypothesis that conveyor shut down leads to an anthropogenic ice age, yes, with new information it has been revised.  The conveyor is likely to more or less shut down.  But the additional heat retained in the atmosphere due to higher CO2 is probably enough to prevent the spread of localized cooling due to the conveyor shut-down.
