    Warming of the World Ocean

    Warming of the World Ocean -- Levitus et al. 287 (5461): 2225 -- Science


    We quantify the interannual-to-decadal variability of the heat content (mean temperature) of the world ocean from the surface through 3000-meter depth for the period 1948 to 1998. The heat content of the world ocean increased by ~2 × 1023 joules between the mid-1950s and mid-1990s, representing a volume mean warming of 0.06°C. This corresponds to a warming rate of 0.3 watt per meter squared (per unit area of Earth's surface). Substantial changes in heat content occurred in the 300- to 1000-meter layers of each ocean and in depths greater than 1000 meters of the North Atlantic. The global volume mean temperature increase for the 0- to 300-meter layer was 0.31°C, corresponding to an increase in heat content for this layer of ~1023 joules between the mid-1950s and mid-1990s. The Atlantic and Pacific Oceans have undergone a net warming since the 1950s and the Indian Ocean has warmed since the mid-1960s, although the warming is not monotonic.

    It's more like:

    Warming of the World Ocean

    We believe we have successfully hidden the decline in the ocean's temperature the Argo Buoys showed in a six year test using well over 3000 of these buoys. We won't release any raw data though for others to study, even with Freedom of Information Act requests pending.

    We're pretty sure our faithful minions of religious zealots out there will cut and paste this report all over the internet, satisfying their desire to follow our religious teachings no matter the cost to their self esteem.

    Thank you.

    OC will be very disappointed you are not bowing down to St. Albert.

    NPR, in the story I linked, did their best not to ruffle any Goreian feathers with their spin of this disaster.

    Of course, answers like these simply indicate the intellectual poverty of those in denial of reality.

    That's you.

    The REALITY is, the Argo's measured and proved ocean COOLING, not warming. AND NOAA and NASA are stalling on FOIA requests for raw data. Have been stonewalling it for years.

    That's part of science? You're okay with it?

    No go, ol' Midnight.

    I gave you a peer reviewed current article concerning the warming of the oceans.

    You gave me a crock of shit with no backing links or articles.

    One reality of this article is that it was written in the year 2000. Another reality is that the array of Argo Buoys was not deployed until 2003.

    Data available to these folks was spotty at best compared to today's capabilities. Thier conclusions are, for all intents and purposes, wothless by today's standards.

    Weren't Jones' and Mann's articles peer reviewed?

    There was an article, and a link. You're too stupid to notice.

    And we all know now what "peer reviewed" really means.

    Again, you dodge. You're okay with NOAA and NASA stonewalling FOIA requests for raw data? For years?
