Ocean Currents

Present day Ocean currents.

below note  large doldrums, lack of current zones.

Below note no major Arctic current because of ice cap.

With melted ice cap there IS a strong Arctic current that in turn forces Gulf Stream south to Africa - delivering

 rain to the Sahara,  while in N America the stronger North Pacific (Japaneese) current keeps heat from the

Alaska current  and not going to Canada, but to the California current, causing warmth there, but a frigid zone

in Canada,  a totally different weather pattern.

Once the Glacial pattern sets in it does not easily shift back  to the interglacial pattern.
