Motivated by discussions among scientists at UW about whether the ocean's play an active role in regulating the climate, and in particular whether changes in ocean circulation, and by consequence heat transport, can significantly modify climate, long held paradigms about the role that ocean circulation plays in climate and climate change were questioned by the PCC community at the 2008 PCC Summer Institute.
