NASA: Pause Is Real, And It’s Totally Due To The Heat Hiding In The Oceans

Bad news, Warmists. Even NASA is saying that the Pause exists. Of course, they use one of your favorite excuses, namely, that the deep oceans ate your warming

NASA Study Finds Indian, Pacific Oceans Temporarily Hide Global Warming

A new NASA study of ocean temperature measurements shows in recent years extra heat from greenhouse gases has been trapped in the waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans. Researchers say this shifting pattern of ocean heat accounts for the slowdown in the global surface temperature trend observed during the past decade.

Researchers Veronica Nieves, Josh Willis and Bill Patzert of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena, California, found a specific layer of the Indian and Pacific oceans between 300 and 1,000 feet (100 and 300 meters) below the surface has been accumulating more heat than previously recognized. They also found the movement of warm water has affected surface temperatures. The result was published Thursday in the journal Science.

During the 20th century, as greenhouse gas concentrations increased and trapped more heat energy on Earth, global surface temperatures also increased. However, in the 21st century, this pattern seemed to change temporarily.

“Greenhouse gases continued to trap extra heat, but for about 10 years starting in the early 2000s, global average surface temperature stopped climbing, and even cooled a bit,” said Willis.

So, nature can magically hide the heat, making it responsible for the Pause. But, according to NASA and the rest of the Cult of Climastrology, nature can’t be responsible at all for the warming.

“Given the fact the Pacific Decadal Oscillation seems to be shifting to a warm phase, ocean heating in the Pacific will definitely drive a major surge in global surface warming,” Nieves said.

Wait, I thought it was Mankind’s fault from GHGs? It really does sound like they pull this all out of their butts.

(reporting climate science) “Natural, decadal variability has been with us for centuries, and it continues to have big regional impacts on society,” said Nieves, a JPL scientist with a joint appointment at the University of California, Los Angeles. “We can expect to have more hiatuses in the future, but unless future hiatuses are stronger than usual, they will be less visible due to fast rising greenhouse gases. Right now, the combined effect of the human-caused warming and the Pacific changing to a warm phase can play together and produce warming acceleration.”

This is actually part of the new Warmists talking points, which attempt to incorporate natural variability, then say that GHGs from Mankind make things worse. They’ve been trotting this out as of late in instances where their typical Blame Mankind talking points do not work so well.

    Yeah, everybody knows that heat can travel downwards through cool upper water layers and deposit itself hundreds of feet below and then stay in place, completely making a fool of everyone who ever said “heat rises!”.

  2. John says:

    I was the PAUSE responsible for last years all time record high temp ?
    Will the PAUSE. Be blamed if this year also sets another record?
    JGlanton and of course everyone also knows that water freezes first not at the top where it is warmest right ?
    JGlanton knows more than the U.S. Navy about ocean thermoclines

    the deep oceans ate your warming

    Actually they claim a shallow ocean layer (100-300 m) has warmed, not the “deep oceans”. Several papers conclude the deep ocean (>2000 m) has not warmed.

    Try to think of the Earth (surface, atmosphere, oceans) as a system with energy input from the Sun. Greenhouse gases trap some of the Sun’s re-radiated heat from the surface, atmosphere and oceans. This warms the Earth more than if there were no greenhouse gases. The atmosphere and the oceans exchange heat – e.g., El Ninos, La Ninas, PDO etc, but the overall heat content of the system (surface, atmosphere and oceans) continues to increase from the increased heat trapped by the greenhouse gases.

    “NASA Study Finds Indian, Pacific Oceans Temporarily Hide Global Warming”

    The scariest part is that the new study shows that these oceans will hide the warming until just after it’s too late to do anything about it! That’s why we have to give more money and power to our masters all pitch in with just a small amount of tax money to fix this problem we can’t yet see.

    darn. Teach, the strikethrough (s, /s) html tag doesn’t work in your comments. Oh well. Can you guess which words I wanted to strike?
