You post two older studies from 2013 and 2020.

You seem to have an obsession with publication date. If, for example, I have data on the height measurement of people on the Isle of Wight over three decades then it doesn't matter whether I publish now or five years from now. The average height for that period is still the same.

As for the overturning papers, you are missing the differences. The Caesar paper used proxies to estimate the overturning rate. They found two periods of slowing -- the beginning of the 1800s and the mid-1900s.

The other two papers were anchored on real-time measurements. If fact, one of the titles is "On the long-term stability of Gulf Stream transport based on 20?years of direct measurements".

"In contrast to recent claims of a Gulf Stream slowdown, two decades of directly measured velocity across the current show no evidence of a decrease."

"the [30-year] time series shows no overall AMOC decline as indicated by other proxies and high-resolution climate models."
