June 2005:
Since the late 1960s, much of the North Atlantic Ocean has become less salty, in part due to increases in fresh water runoff induced by global warming, scientists say. Now for the first time researchers have quantified this fresh water influx, allowing them to predict the long-term effects on a "conveyor belt" of ocean currents.

Climate changes in the Northern Hemisphere have melted glaciers and brought more rain, dumping more fresh water into the oceans, according to the analysis.
August 2007:
The surface waters of the North Atlantic are getting saltier, suggests a new study of records spanning over 50 years. And this might actually be good news for the effects of climate change on global ocean currents in the short-term, say the study's researchers.

The seawater is probably becoming saltier due to global warming, Boyer says.
Global warming fits any scenario, apparently.

Cooling = global warming too, in some circumstance. Maybe this is why they all lump it under "climate change". Great catch-all for the AGW fearmonger!

Boy, it doesn't say much for the efficacy of a 50 year study when the results can be flipped in a two year period.
