Summary:Learn about the role of the sea in global warming. The global conveyor belt is part of the large-scale ocean circulation that is driven by differences in the density of the waters. It plays a role in keeping the climate at balance and Europe warm. Global warming may change it forever with unforseeable consequences. German animation team Kurzgesagt investigates how global ocean currents play a part in shaping the climates of some countries and provinces. The Guld Stream, one such current, is currently being researched as a potential renewable energy source.
