The following plot shows global average sea surface temperatures from the AMSR-E instrument over the lifetime of the Aqua satellite, through Dec 31, 2010. The SSTs at the end of December suggest that the tropospheric temperatures in the previous graph (see post here) still have a ways to fall in the coming months to catch up to the ocean, which should now be approaching its coolest point if it follows the course of previous La Ninas.
“global warming” wasn’t a myth!! It was an intentional LIE!!
Al Gore should go to prison for FRAUD!!! Don’t give me the “Climate Change” crap. What the hell is that?
But I thought the reason for the Big Freeze is because it is getting warmer because of Cars and Cow Farts
Earth to Gore & the dipsticks that believe that man made religion, It Changes!
They went up when Bammy was “elected” and down again when Republicans were elected to the House. Case closed.
Send me money or the earth is doomed.
Doomed I tell you. Use Paypal.
Certain proof of man made climate change, the warming is now increasing at an accelerated rate. We can expect further cooling and increased polar ice as a result of this warming.
Mostly cow farts and greenies hot air.
"Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere [historically] is the product of oceanic respiration due to the well-known but under-appreciated solubility pump. Carbon dioxide rises out of warm ocean waters where it is added to the atmosphere. There it is mixed with residual and accidental CO2, and circulated, to be absorbed into the sink of the cold ocean waters. Next the thermohaline circulation carries the CO2-rich sea water deep into the ocean. A millennium later it appears at the surface in warm waters, saturated by lower pressure and higher temperature, to be exhausted back into the atmosphere. Throughout the past 420 millennia, comprising four interglacial periods, the Vostok record of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration is imprinted with, and fully characterized by, the physics of the solubility of CO2 in water, along with the lag in the deep ocean circulation.
Notwithstanding that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, atmospheric carbon dioxide has neither caused nor amplified global temperature increases. Increased carbon dioxide has been an effect of global warming, not a cause [historically -etl]. Technically, carbon dioxide is a lagging proxy for ocean temperatures. When global temperature, and along with it, ocean temperature rises, the physics of solubility causes atmospheric CO2 to increase.
If increases in carbon dioxide, or any other greenhouse gas, could have in turn raised global temperatures, the positive feedback would have been catastrophic. While the conditions for such a catastrophe were present in the Vostok record from natural causes, the runaway event did not occur. Carbon dioxide does not accumulate in the atmosphere."
Don’t you understand that all of the melting glaciers are causing the oceans to cool?!?
The logic from the left will say (Because it is so hot it is causing evaporation and the evaporation causes water to cool, therefore the hotter it gets the cooler the ocean will become).
Twisted Logic but just wait and see how long before that explanation us utilized.
Lol. These shysters are not too different than the Reverend Jim Bakker there on TV telling you to send money and you would be saved.
Notice there that the very same levels of CO2 are observed while the temperature is trending both up and down. This proves that CO2 cannot be the driver of temperature.
Even when CO2 levels did rise (due to naturally warming oceans releasing it), temperature rises didn’t follow. In other words, the so-called “runaway greenhouse effect” algore and the other lefties try to scare us about never happened.
If that is your “wave runner” then I need a new hobby. And Botox, and a hair dye. And lipo.
That’s my wave rider and my Babe!
