LIVERMORE, Calif., June 11 (UPI) -- Human activity has been the primary cause of global ocean warming during the past 50 years, a team of U.S. and international researchers says.
Scientists say the observed ocean warming in the last 50 years is consistent with climate models only if the models include the effects of observed increases in greenhouse gas during the 20th century.
"We have taken a closer look at factors that influence these results," lead author Peter Gleckler at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California said. "The bottom line is that this study substantially strengthens the conclusion that most of the observed global ocean warming over the past 50 years is attributable to human activities."

Great science at work. /s
Let's assume this is correct.
They (scientists) cannot prove whether this is good or bad, net for the long term; the next 1000 years for example. That would be a math problem that could never be modeled.
In the summer of 1973, I peed in the water at Ocean City. I am soooooo sorry. Next time I’m in the area I’ll toss in an ice cube. Are we good?
Nope...can't be these cycles (which...BTW...when you look at them you see them cycling up and down in 40-50 year cycles).
How do these guys live with themselves.
This is HUGH!
Got to stop wee weeing in the water at the beach!
All the grant money they harvest in the process of producing this verbal diarrhea makes it a lot easier than it would be otherwise.
Well I did take a leak in the river last night...
Great minds think alike! I was thinking the same thing. In one of the shark movies (I’m not sure if it was “Jaws”) they describe how shark attacks started when people started swimming in the ocean for recreation.
It happened earlier than fifty years ago, but maybe the sea is just building up the urine content. When I was a kid we were at one of those beaches with like a mile of sand to the bathrooms (maybe Jones Beach in NY); I pulled down my bathing suit, and bobbing like a cork let out a #2 (I imagined that the water would clean my rear-end). I watched it ride up on a wave and then I never saw it again...
My wife and I were in the Bahamas at one of those pool bars; after I while I was bothered by the fact that so many people were pounding drinks (it was all-inclusive) and nobody was getting out to go to the bathroom. Not that I’m being judgmental (see # 11), but I wouldn’t do that in such close quarters.
You assume they have moral standards. Instead thy have the standard of greed of which they accuse Republicans. They are assuring their next multi million government grant to keep studying the hoax. Has any of them ever checked the location of the instruments which measure such things. Most are so rediculously close to a heat source as to be laughable.
Libs have no problem lying - it comes very naturally to them. Sir NoNothing Hansen at NOAA just won’t give up.
Journalists Refuse To Discuss The Mammoth In The Room
By Steve Goddard
According to Richard Black of the BBC, global warming is soon to be a $100 billion per year industry. This money pays for and drives the direction of the science.
The press corps(e) drones on endlessly about tiny amounts of imagined big oil money - yet refuses to discuss the scientific corruption caused by unimaginably large amounts of big government money, big bank money, big insurance money, . etc.
The message for scientists is simple. Give us the answer we are looking for, and we will pay you. Give us the wrong answer and we will fire you. Journalists wont touch this because they are on same payola scheme.
The big oil lie is propagated by Greenpeace on Sourcewatch and radical environmentalist David Suzuki and renewable industry funded Desmogblog and happily repeated by the journalists in the tank for the left and also by many ill informed commenters on the internet blogs and story sites. It is also behind the criminal behavior of UVA and OSU and PSU in purging skeptical scientists and protecting grant toting alarmist faculty.
Yep, must be all the SUVs (Sailing Utility Vessels). /s
The fish do it!
Thanks for the link. I found this pricelesss gem there.
“When the climate refuses to warm (as it has for the last twenty years), they just study warming in reverse! Most of us call that cooling, but they are very careful not to upset their Obama administration contract monitors with politically incorrect terminology.”
If you want to see how this is part of a plan do a search for Communist Goals. In 1958, Cleon Skousen wrote a book titled The Naked Communist. In it he listed the goals of the Communist Party which he obtained from a purloined KGB document. It is amazing how close to final touchdown they are.
Not long ago I decided to rebel against political correctness by ignoring it. In the future I will be calling the Democrat Party the Commmunist Party.
