Skip to comments.The Mystery of Global Warming's Missing Heat
Posted on 03/19/2008 7:44:52 AM PDT by milwguy
Some 3,000 scientific robots that are plying the ocean have sent home a puzzling message. These diving instruments suggest that the oceans have not warmed up at all over the past four or five years. That could mean global warming has taken a breather. Or it could mean scientists aren't quite understanding what their robots are telling them. "I suspect that we'll able to put this together with a little bit more perspective and further analysis," Trenberth says. "But what this does is highlight some of the issues and send people back to the drawing board."
Trenberth and Willis agree that a few mild years have no effect on the long-term trend of global warming. But they say there are still things to learn about how our planet copes with the heat.

If the facts don’t fit the theory, throw the facts overboard. That’s the Goracle Way.
And they call the skeptics flat earthers!
Hmmmmmm, a very inconvenient truth! Al Gore will be pi$$ed.
Think about the absurdity of the phrase “global warming’s missing heat”
More likely, the robots aren't telling them what they want to hear.
Not mentioned as the possibility that we are going into a period of global cooling. That is because nothing in their theology could account for human generated global cooling.
My son was in the car and I pointed out the blatant bias in this piece so at least it was a teaching moment.
Goracle...interesting play.....makes me think of the Stargate “ORI”. Perhaps, we could call his followers the (get ready for it, get ready for it............) Gor-eye......
Their endless quest to prove that Al Gore should have been President in 2000 has cost the Libs an Oscar, a Nobel and whatever sanity they may have had.
“That could mean global warming has taken a breather. Or it could mean scientists aren’t quite understanding what their robots are telling them. “
It’s stuff like this that makes me crazy. Global warming taking a breather?! It’s unacceptable to the zealots to admit that it’s possible that global warming is a scam, so they just figure it’s a bad thing that took a break?! Please.
And the scientists don’t understand what the robots told them?! You mean the scientists can’t read temperatures suddenly? Or could it be, they need time to modify global warming dogma to fit the data?
And in that one line, it tells me why we will never be rid of these global warming zealots. No facts will disuade them. We could be in an ice age, with a glacier creeping into south Ohio and those morons would be crying about how global warming is the reason!
I saw it posted before, Algore makes P.T. Barnum look like a piker.
Maybe the answer lies in the quiet sun. As of this very moment, still very, very few sunspots in this current cycle. Climate science has drunk the AGW KoolAid and is not interested in any other climate models. Well, there is another climate model, one where the correlation between climate swings and solar activity is very high.
Indeed, climate science loves their models going forward, but few scientists seem interested in back-testing them, especially to test them against the 1800’s when snow in July caused such massive crop failures that many died from famine.
This corresponded to a sunspot cycle that lacked sunspots, a period that was named the Maunder Minimum. So far, this current cycle seems to mimic the paucity of sunspots during that time. If we have a similar paucity, we can expect similar weather disasters.
2006: The term was “Global Warming”
2007: The term was “Climate Change”
2008: The term is “Climate Inactivity”
Climate Inactivity is caused by man! Factories and SUVs are preventing the climate from changing naturally!
I love the line towards the bottom that tells us that maybe some of the warmer temperature has gone deeper into the water. That is soooooo funny!
These guys really don’t have a clue!
or see this great site..........
They finally decided to consider the laws of thermodynamics. Greenhouse theory doesn't account for any mildness, just always increasing heat. When they say 2005 or 1998 was the warmest year, they need to explain why the most recent year wasn't the warmest and they will eventually claim that the heat is hiding deep in the ocean where they don't have any thermometers.
so the calculations about continued growth in heat due to co2, have, er taken a break...
BAWHAHHA...yep cos maths works that way...when things dont total correctly, just say one column is on vacation...
