Our cooling oceans...

...with patience, and ongoing science the myth of catastrophic global warming continues to be exposed. Click on graph at left to enlarge...There has been a change in direction by global warming alarmists, as shown by “Synthesis Report - Climate Change: Global Risks, Challenges & Decisions,” published in Copenhagen and released in June. In that report, those claiming there is a human-induced global warming crisis have abandoned air temperature as a measure of global climate and switched to ocean temperature. The change in focus from air temperature to ocean temperature was predictable given the sustained decline in global air temperature over recent years. The new report claims ocean temperatures are rising, and fast.
This is rubbish, but it will take time to inform the public and politicians that it is rubbish. With the U.S. climate bill and the Copenhagen meeting of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change coming up, proponents of carbon dioxide restrictions need only to make the public believe these fables for a few months. All the public education the climate realists have accomplished regarding air temperatures will have to start all over regarding ocean temperatures. Here are some key points to be made: Ocean temperatures can be measured adequately only by the
Argo buoy network. Argo buoys dive down to 700m, recording temperatures, then come up and radio back the results. There are 3,000 of them floating around all the world’s oceans According to Argo temperature measurements, the world’s oceans have shown a slight cooling since Argo became operational in 2003. In sharp contrast to model predicted heat build-up ...more here...
...and from Peter Taylor’s new book CHILL: a Reassessment of Global Warming Theory, reviewed here...“The oceans play a crucial role in the absorption and dissipation of heat over decadal and millennial timescales and with distinct cyclic patterns.These patterns are poorly understood and not replicated in global warming models, and any conclusions drawn with respect to those models being able to isolate an anthropogenic global warming signal must be regarded as unproven and unlikely”.
