Caption: The Abbey gardens on Tresco, one of the Scilly Isles, off South West Cornwall, UK, renowned for its tropical plants which are able to grow due to the Gulf Stream, or North Atlantic Drift. This is a warm ocean current which keeps the island warmer than they would otherwise be for their latitude, and also frost free. Scientists have already recorded a slowing down of the Gulf Stream caused by climate change. As cold fresh water pours off the arctic ice sheets, it prevents the denser salty water from sinking, which is the start of the conveyor.
