Oceans Are Now “Hiding” The Effects Of Someone Driving An SUV Instead Of A Volt

See, the reason that the world is not burning to cinders from slightly above 350ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere….it’s about 387ppm now, a level certainly never seen in the history of the Earth. Doom!……..is because those mean oceans are hiding the effects

New analysis led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) suggests that the relative slowdown in global air temperature rises during the past decade may have been caused in part by the planet’s deep oceans.

Scientists from NCAR and the Bureau of Meteorology in Australia claim that the oceans at times may absorb enough heat to flatten the rate of global warming for periods of as long as a decade even in the midst of longer-term warming.

You see? Anthropogenic global warming is still happening, but is being hidden by a natural process….wait, a natural process is hiding it? Could it possibly be that natural processes have caused the vast majority of perceived warming since the end of the last cool period, the Little Ice Age?

The study, based on computer simulations of global climate, points to ocean layers deeper than 1,000 feet (300 meters) as the main location of the “missing heat” during periods such as the past decade when global air temperatures showed little trend. The findings also suggest that several more intervals like this can be expected over the next century, even as the trend toward overall warming continues.

Uh huh. Computer simulations. How about some hard data?

NCAR’s Gerald Meehl, lead author of the study said: “We will see global warming go through hiatus periods in the future. However, these periods would likely last only about a decade or so, and warming would then resume. This study illustrates one reason why global temperatures do not simply rise in a straight line.”

See? It’s so easy: they’ve found a way to say globull warming is real, it’s Mankind’s fault, it’s just that the oceans are hiding the effects. This way, they can continue pushing their cult (and getting research grants).

To track where the heat was going, Meehl and colleagues used a powerful software tool known as the Community Climate System Model, which was developed by scientists at NCAR and the Department of Energy with colleagues at other organizations. Using the model’s ability to portray complex interactions between the atmosphere, land, oceans, and sea ice, they performed five simulations of global temperatures.

The simulations, which were based on projections of future greenhouse gas emissions from human activities, indicated that temperatures would rise by several degrees during this century. But each simulation also showed periods in which temperatures would stabilize for about a decade before climbing again. For example, one simulation showed the global average rising by about 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit (1.4 degrees Celsius) between 2000 and 2100, but with two decade-long hiatus periods during the century.

So, no actual hard data? No measurements of the deep oceans to see if this is actually happening? You know, I love playing 1st person shooters, but, I am under no illusion that they make me a badass warrior capable of wiping out thousands of enemies a day. I’d actually have to go out and train in the real world. The “science” of climate change seems to always ignore the real world.

This study is simply a follow up to the one by Kevin “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at this moment and it is a travesty that we can’t” Trenberth that attempted to say that the warming was playing Where’s Waldo and hiding from us. Because it must be hiding! It couldn’t possibly be that decades of alarmist hysteria was based on a false notion (stamps foot)!
