Temperatures have increased over virtually the entire planet since the mid-19th century, but the warming rate has not been the same everywhere. When looking at the changes relative to the global average, it is clear the Arctic and land areas are warming faster than the ocean.

Great illustration of the Atlantic „cold blob“ due to a slowdown of the Atlantic overturning circulation! Another prediction by climate models which has come true!

Could the extensive emissions of SOx from shipping in the Northern Atlantic and the impact on clouds and regional cooling have contributed to he cold blob? SOX emissions from shipping reduced with ~80% from IMO 2020 regulationg.

Yes, something we are aware of, if the overturning circulation stops turning over aka the Gulf Stream stops working.
