    This statement is mostly true within the parameters of the study from which it emerged. The study concludes that there is a risk of the AMOC collapsing between 2025 and 2095. Picking the central estimate of 2057 seems rather arbitrary.

    I do think that their estimate is possibly true and should be concerning. The underlying reasoning is very credible.

    The Gulf Stream/AMOC has only been properly measured since 2004. It is found to be slowing down. But "collapse" in 2020-2095 is too strong a statement. We can at present not rule out the possibility that a collapse will only be partial lAmoc is also only one part of the wider Gulf Stream system, much of which is driven by winds that will continue to blow even if the Amoc collapses. So part of the Gulf Stream will survive an Amoc collapse.

    There are valid facts in the claim but the conclusion about the timescale for impact on the Gulf stream seems to overstated.

    Collapse of the AMOC would be devastating, so it's worth considering this statement at face value. Still, I think there are too many variables which make this statement problematic.

    When predicting complex systems with sophisticated mathematics but sparse date, it is essential to list the assumptions made. Unfortunately newspapers cannot assess those. And so we are left with disagreement among experts. The IPCC Sixth Assessment Report addressed this issue specifically, and found that based on model projections and theoretical understanding, the Gulf Stream will not shut down in a warming climate.

    While the range of times in which this collapse could possibly happen does include the mid-21st-century, it also extends to the beginning of the 22nd century, Many scientists think the likelihood of AMOC collapse is not as eminent as the study concludes.

    I feel that the conclusion reached by the study is probably apt, WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE STUDY, but the design of the study doesn't take into account the predictive model's shortcomings. I'm not convinced that the study considers several other important variables, and setting a collapse date of 2050 is not generally supported by other studies/researchers.
