THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New papers call into question the global sea surface temperature record
Two new companion papers published in Ocean Science call into question the data and methods used to construct global sea surface temperature records of the past 150 years. The authors find that measurements taken from ship engine cooling intakes can be "overly-warm by greater than 0.5°C on some vessels," which by way of comparison is about the same magnitude as the alleged global sea surface temperature warming since 1870.THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds N. Atlantic ocean heat content & sea levels controlled by the natural Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation [AMO]
A paper published today in the Journal of Geophysical Research Oceans finds ocean heat content and sea levels in the Northern North Atlantic are associated with the cycles of the natural Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation [AMO, also referred to as AMV].‘Skeptical Science’ Says Concerns About Dangerous Global Warming are Unimportant | Watts Up With That?
Let’s just focus on the fact Skeptical Science tells us it doesn’t matter whether or not Cook et al’s work proves there is a consensus that global warming is dangerous. They say that issue is a just a nit – an unimportant detail. They say there is no relevant difference between a paper saying, “Global warming is mad-made” and saying, “Global warming is man-made and dangerous.”2007 Shock News : Global Warming To Kill Almost Everybody By 2012 | Real Science
That settles it. They don’t care. Why should we?
