No, CNN and Other Media Outlets, Climate Change Is Not Causing the Ocean Circulation to Collapse

A recent CNN headline, “Critical Atlantic Ocean current system is showing early signs of collapse, prompting warning from scientists“ misleads its readers into believing that a collapse of a critical Atlantic Ocean current is pending. This is false.

The CNN article opens by saying:

A crucial system of ocean currents may already be on course to collapse, according to a new report, with alarming implications for sea level rise and global weather — leading temperatures to plunge dramatically in some regions and rise in others.

The CNN story is referring to a study in Science Advances, titled Physics-based early warning signal shows that AMOC is on tipping course.

Dozens of other media outlets picked up the story, also running frightening headlines, all blaming climate change. For example:
