    Now we have heard much BS about the ocean cooling. Here are the real facts.

    Skeptical Science explains how we know global warming is happening: It’s the oceans, stupid! « Climate Progress

    Now I’m sure the deniers and delayers out there are shrieking, “There are peer reviewed analyses that document that upper ocean warming has halted since 2003!” — a claim I dealt with in my July post, “Like father, like son: Roger Pielke Sr. also doesn’t understand the science of global warming — or just chooses to willfully misrepresent it.”

    Subsequently, however, another JGR article, “Global hydrographic variability patterns during 2003–2008” (subs. req’d, draft here) details an analysis of “monthly gridded global temperature and salinity fields from the near-surface layer down to 2000 m depth based on Argo measurements.” Background on Argo here. Their findings are summed up in this figure:



    Figure [2]: Time series of global mean heat storage (0–2000 m), measured in 108 Jm-2.

    Still warming, after all these years! And just where you’d expect it. The study makes clear that upper ocean heat content, perhaps not surprisingly, is simply far more variable than deeper ocean heat content, and thus an imperfect indicator of the long-term warming trend.

    Parroting and nothing of substance, just like Spam.

    But, since you have not read the site, your comments are simply worthless.

    Your source is biased ... thus ... it's no more valid than any denying it.

    I see. The Journal of Geophysical Research, Atmospheres is biased. Well yes, I suppose that they are. They are scientists, so they tend to be biased in letting the evidence speak for itself, rather than trying to present things as they think 'they ought to be'.

    Whatever the bias of the source, when evidence is presented, best address the evidence.

    Um ... no ... you pointed out that scientists are biased ... who pays these ones? How do they make money to live?

    There is only one true scientific way to find out if the ocean is cooling or warming.

    The Frogen shrinkage test.

    If my penis shrinks to six inches, the ocean is dramatically cooling.

    If the Australian Navy declares a massive urine spill off the coast of WA the ocean is warming.

    And who pays the deniars? Not only do they get more money, they don't even have to work for it. Just stand and lie.

    I envy your remarkably large penis.

    It only adds to the dissapointment of the confirmed fraud of global warming - it was my hope shrinkage would be in great decline with warmer temps. Alas, it was but a cruel hoax, and more shrinkage is surely to follow...
