New pathway proposed for ancient flood

Meltwaters off northwestern Canada’s ice sheet would have shut down the ocean’s heat circulation 13,000 years ago

"The 1,200-year-long cold spell, known as the Younger Dryas, interrupted a warm period 12,900 years ago when the massive ice sheet covering much of Canada was melting. During the cold snap, temperatures in parts of the Northern Hemisphere dropped to about 10 degrees Celsius colder than they are today."

I wish they would make up their minds & quit waffling.

But there’s still one missing piece of the puzzle. Condron and Winsor assume most of the freshwater came from a melting dome of ice in northwestern Canada. Geologists have yet to find direct evidence that such a large pool of water actually existed,
Well, it will give them something to look for.
