A recent NASA satellite image of the UK, shows the entire country covered in snow and ice, in the middle of one of the worst winters it has experienced in years. Amazingly were it not for a warm body of water that travels north through the Atlantic Ocean called the Gulf-stream, this freezing image of the UK would unfortunately be the countries natural state.
If the gulf-stream were to stop or change course, the UK would literally become and arctic nation encased in snow and ice for much of the year, and as the Earths climate continues to change, we just might be getting a glimpse of the future Great Britain.
The future looks rather chilly, old Chap...
