    Here is the graph for oceanic heat...Appears to be not moving upwards...:confused:

    [​IMG]

    In this says that 93 percent of the heat of the imbalance goes into the ocean.

    This does show some warming, but not even 1/5th as much as pre 2003. So should we take the pre-2003 data with a grain of fucking sand or not? It was wrong. So lets assume that the warming in this graph is true and that is how it has been the whole time and the pre-2003 was wrong. must take a shit load of energy to heat the ocean.:eek:

    So the second graph is the one that matters and pre-2003 should be thrown in the trash. That is my opinion.

    Another graph that supports warming, but how good is it?


    The question that needs to be asked is this the warming that 93 percent of the energy that the imbalanced is causing by the co2 should be causing within the oceans?

    Smokescreen, the question the deniers need to answer is what happens, if CO2 and other GHGs keep going up? THAT'S the bottom line. Keep increasing them and temp rise is inevitable. That's simple logic. It may be a small rise, but that would lead to an increase in water vapor in the atmosphere, which we all know is an even more potent GHG.

    Oh of course, it's "inevitable". That's why we need to hand over all our money to you global warming fascists because you "believe" it will happen. Keep your global warming "religion" to yourselves.

    All you "geniuses" are doing is your own version of a S.W.A.G. Scientific Wild Ass Guess.

    You call yourself a scientist?!?! Why does the known ability of GHGs to trap energy have to do with my "belief"? You "Mad" because no one will accept your crackpot theories?!?! Seems you're the one with the "religious" fervor! :cool:

    None of these deniars can give real science supporting their position. They simply want the world "the way things ought to be". So, in return for the observations of real scientists, they give the rants of politically driven op ed writers. Or accuse the people who post science from real scientists of being 'religiously' driven.

    If you have no answer or valid point, obfuscate. That is their creed and motto.

    Could the massive amounts of plastic floating in our oceans have anything to do with the issue?

    I think what we are seeing is that the heat is now mixing to far greater depths.

    Wrong again konrad. If CO2 is the driver that it is claimed to be, the temperature should be another 1 degree C warmer than it is. That's a fact. That is what Hansen predicted would occur with less CO2 then there in fact is! The only thing that is inevitable is the temps are going to continue to drop for the next 20 or so years then hopefully they will rise again for the following 20 or 30 years and the cycle repeats....like it has since time on this planet began.

    Very likely....But not in a way the warmist kooks believe.
