What would happen if ocean currents stopped?

    The ocean currents do many things. The flow moves nutients around the world, bringing up items from deep in the ocean to the surface, where they feed animals and plants. The available supply of oxygen would likely go down due to fewer plants being fed. Which would result in fewer fish for food supplies. They also move large quantities of heat around, moving heat from the equitorial regions to the northern climes. Loss of these currents would change the climate of many areas of the world, making many areas much colder. There is likely to be some major changes in preciptation as a result, meaning more drought in some areas.
