Group of climate scientists after analyzing computer simulations revealed that the strait that separates North America and Russia can become a stabilizer in global temperatures.

From there, the cold water masses fall into the Atlantic with no obstacles in the way of nature, and influence miridionalnuyu circulation of the Atlantic Ocean (AMOC) and the temperature of
