Oh, Noes, The Ocean’s Circulation Hasn’t Been This Sluggish In 1000 Years!!!!!!!!

I’ve mostly been ignoring this idiotic bit of scaremongering, but this one takes the cake

There’s one simple point: do they have the actual scientific data to prove the assertion? Measurements from over the entirety of the last 1000 years, of which the majority was during a Holocene warm period? What about comparisons to the time during Holocene warm periods?

But, don’t totally blame Greenpeace (which uses vast amounts of fossil fuels to pull all sorts of stunts to fund-raise): the link goes to the Washington Post, where an editor either allowed hyper-Warmist Chris Mooney to write the alarmist, unscientific headline, or did it him/herself. And includes this

The two studies have their differences: The second suggests the slowdown probably began for natural reasons around the time of the Industrial Revolution in 1850, rather than being spurred by human-caused climate change, which fully kicked in later.

But like the first study, the second finds that the circulation has remained weak, or even weakened further, through the present era of warming.

So, it started naturally, but, then they just Assume that it is now all man-caused. They have no actual proof using data that can stand up to the Scientific Method. You just have to take their word for it.

Watts Up With That? also points to a 2010 NASA study that the circulation was not slowing down. Warmists might proclaim “but, that was 8 years ago!!!!!” Yes, but the ocean circulation doom study proclaims that it has been slowing down for well over 100 years. The NASA study used actual data, rather than computer models.

Anyhow, even if it is slowing, there’s no proof of anthropogenic causation.

    I blame the Moon.

    Sounds like a cycle to me. lets see roman Warm period about 2000 years ago, Medieval warm period About 1000 Yrs. Current weather Warm perod all about 1000 years apart Slow down of the ataltic about a 1000 years ago. I wonder how we could verify that and maybe prove it happened two thousand years ago.
