Warmist: “there is limited data available about the deepest regions of the sea”

This is how “science” is practiced in Warmist World (via Junk Science)

(Deutsche Welle) The output of heat-trapping gases like carbon dioxide (CO2) continues to surge, forcing up global temperatures. Sea levels are also rising, said Mojib Latif of the Geomar Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel. “This reprieve only refers to the ocean’s surface temperature. We can’t conclude that climate change has come to a halt.”

Mojib Latif predicted a temporary hiatus in global warming Latif is a calm, self-controlled man, but he is easily angered by having to explain again and again why climate change isn’t just a scam. Back in 2008, Latif shocked many of his colleagues by saying the rise of temperature could indeed stagnate. Oceans covering two thirds of the earth’s surface are able to absorb heat and store it – especially in deep sea levels below 800 meters (875 yards).

This theory is supported by many other scientists, but there is limited data available about the deepest regions of the sea. That’s why Latif continues to stress how important research is in order to learn more about deep sea areas. “We know about the surface of the moon, but we know very little about the deep sea,” he told DW.

Most the article is seriously Alaramist, as expected. Now, here’s how science works

  1. Could the heat be disappearing into the deep oceans?
  2. Do background research and realize this is idiotic
  3. But, since you have nothing better to do and received a nice grant, you construct some sort of hypothesis
  4. Experiment and gather actual data to test the hypothesis
  5. Analyze the data and realize that the question and hypothesis are idiotic
  6. Write a paper and be called a dupe of the fossil fuel industry, get blackballed and let go

Here’s how Warmist science works

  1. Freak out about why global temperatures aren’t co-operating with the computer models
  2. Chat with fellow Warmists, decide that the heat must be missing, get a nice fat government grant to postulate
  3. Realize there is little data for the deep oceans, postulate that it is doing a Where’s Waldo?
  4. Tell everyone that it is hiding in the deep ocean, publish press releases, get the backing of other Warmists
  5. Go on news shows and discuss with newpapers and magazines, say it is consensus
  6. Denigrate anyone who dares ask “where the f**k’s your hard data?”
  7. Say the science is settled, take a fossil fueled trip to a climate change conference

Notice that in the article Latif is essentially skipping all that pesky “gathering data and testing” stuff. He, like other Warmists, has essentially drawn a conclusion from a thought, without data. The hypothesis is “it must be Mankind’s fault, so we have to find a way to make everything fit our preconceived notions”.

    Or you could read a paper or two… Levitus et al 2012, for example. Or try this website:


    Clearly, the oceans down to 2000 meters continue to warm. The “pause” that Professor Latif described in his 2008 paper refers to surface warming (that’s all those surface thermometers all over the globe that Anthony Watts claimed were inaccurate but had his nose rubbed in his ideology).

  2. Jeffery says:

    and William typed: “…Latif is essentially skipping all that pesky “gathering data and testing” stuff.”

    But your own article said: “That’s why Latif continues to stress how important research is in order to learn more about deep sea areas.”

    Did not the warmists claim that if the oceans warmed up that the water would expand and the ocean rise would accelerate? If the oceans are asorbing the all the missing heat would not the evidence be the rising ocean? where is the data? If there is missing heat, would it not be important to determine if heat input is still the same or less before trying to find where it is going. Assuming the heat input is the same is a fatal to the logic.

  4. Blick, Blick, Blick, come on, your talking science. That’s not part of “climate change”.

  5. Jeffery says:

    Ocean volume (sea level) is increasing as predicted.

    Average total solar irradiance has varied by less than 0.1% over the past century, staying between 1365.5 and 1366.5 W/m2, but was increasing slightly during the first half of the century and has been decreasing slightly since the 50s.

  6. Jeffery says:

    Actually, the science supports climate change. What do you have?

  7. Blick says:

    If insolation does not vary, then why the worry about sun spot cycles and the output of the sun?

    The last I saw of the sea rise figures there was no acceleration of rise and the rate of rise is the same as usual — no acceleration. So the seas are rising as predicted without global warming.

    Ahoy there, Captain Teach. Aye Aye sir, Avast heaving on the science stuff. Blick
