Oops: NASA Finds Earth’s Deep Oceans Not Warming

How will Warmists spin this? Head in the sand? Say it means nothing? Say the science is settled? Deflect to the military supposedly believing? Throw out a few slurs?

NASA Study Finds Earth’s Ocean Abyss Has Not Warmed

The cold waters of Earth’s deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005, according to a new NASA study, leaving unsolved the mystery of why global warming appears to have slowed in recent years.

So, in other words, the excuse of the oceans ate my warming was about as credible as “no, really, officer, I had no idea how fast I was going”.

Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013 and found the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles (1,995 meters) has not warmed measurably. Study coauthor Josh Willis of JPL said these findings do not throw suspicion on climate change itself.

Well, of course not. Nothing can dissuade cultish zealots. You have a better chance of persuading Westboro Baptist Church members that gay marriage is OK, convincing Iran to support recognize the right of Israel to exist, to keep Obama from being an utterly partisan hack.

“The sea level is still rising,” Willis noted. “We’re just trying to understand the nitty-gritty details.”

Well, yeah, that’s what happens during Holocene warm periods.

“The deep parts of the ocean are harder to measure,” said JPL’s William Llovel, lead author of the study published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change. “The combination of satellite and direct temperature data gives us a glimpse of how much sea level rise is due to deep warming. The answer is — not much.”

To arrive at their conclusion, the JPL scientists did a straightforward subtraction calculation, using data for 2005-2013 from the Argo buoys, NASA’s Jason-1 and Jason-2 satellites, and the agency’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites. From the total amount of sea level rise, they subtracted the amount of rise from the expansion in the upper ocean, and the amount of rise that came from added meltwater. The remainder represented the amount of sea level rise caused by warming in the deep ocean.

The remainder was essentially zero. Deep ocean warming contributed virtually nothing to sea level rise during this period.

Whelp, there goes that prognostication right out the window. No that, again, anything will change the utterly closed and un-science interested minds of Warmists.

    Another interesting factoid. !
    Teach nasa and NOAA both say that this year is on track to be hottest year ever how are the driers going to spin that?
    2012 was either the 2nd or as low as 6th warmest ever depending on which data set is used
    Durring the last 150 years there have been gasp PAUSES for periods but then temps start going up again
    Teach if this year does break all records will we still be in a pause ?
    Can you post a temp timeline ( not the discredited “lord” Monkton (yeah he even lied about being a lord) scam one but a simple temp on one axis and year on the other. ?

    The odious warmists will spin it by reading the rest of the article.

    “Coauthor Felix Landerer of JPL noted that during the same period warming in the top half of the ocean continued unabated, an unequivocal sign that our planet is heating up. Some recent studies reporting deep-ocean warming were, in fact, referring to the warming in the upper half of the ocean but below the topmost layer, which ends about 0.4 mile (700 meters) down.

    Landerer also is a coauthor of another paper in the same journal issue on 1970-2005 ocean warming in the Southern Hemisphere. Before Argo floats were deployed, temperature measurements in the Southern Ocean were spotty, at best. Using satellite measurements and climate simulations of sea level changes around the world, the new study found the global ocean absorbed far more heat in those 35 years than previously thought — a whopping 24 to 58 percent more than early estimates.”

    And the execrable warmists will spin this without reading the rest of the article which does not attribute the warming to AGW.

  6. Yeah, that massive 0.09C increase in temps for the upper oceans over the last 50 years means the climate apocalypse is coming!!!!!!!

    Nothing that isn’t expected during a mild Holocene warm period, no anthropogenic causes necessary for an explanation

  7. John says:

    Others will spin that report by saying that in the southern ocean which us larger than the northern ocean. The rate if temp increase in the top layer of about. 2700 feet. The vhange has been 2x as fast as they thought
    Really teach the report. Overwhelmingly shows. The planet is getting hotter
    You MUST look at the primary sources and not just allow others to cherry pick data
    They are hiding you every freaking time

    Notice how everyone talks about warming but never, ever gives actual numbers that are not massaged and craked through a computer model to give what is desired. There is no observable evidence of warming, if there is, there is no connection to a trace gas in the atmosphere, then there is no evidence that man put the gas there, and there is certainly no propect of change by taking our freedom and wealth and being micromanged by a totaleratian government. Personally, I would rather fight the pending civil war than bow to the only answer to the supposed environmental problem. Lets get it on.
