A deafening clap of thunder and a brilliant stroke of lightening: though sometimes fun to watch, there is something troubling about such moments of nature's beauty. Rain showers may be harbingers of an unwelcome future. Extra rain and snow might be evidence that global warming is coming to the northern half of the United States. Some scientists say the extra precipitation could disrupt a balance between fresh and salt water in the Atlantic Ocean, and might abruptly cripple a massive ocean current known as the Great Conveyor. I traveled to Igloolik as part of reporting for a documentary on concern that global warming could bring about such an abrupt climate change.
