NPR: Where’d Our Global Warming Go?

National Public Radio (NPR) is having a hard time finding the warming, but there’s no shortage of excuses. h/t Sweetness & Light

The Mystery of Global Warming’s Missing Heat

Some 3,000 scientific robots that are plying the ocean have sent home a puzzling message. These diving instruments suggest that the oceans have not warmed up at all over the past four or five years. That could mean global warming has taken a breather. Or it could mean scientists aren’t quite understanding what their robots are telling them.

This is puzzling in part because here on the surface of the Earth, the years since 2003 have been some of the hottest on record. But Josh Willis at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory says the oceans are what really matter when it comes to global warming.

In fact, 80 percent to 90 percent of global warming involves heating up ocean waters. They hold much more heat than the atmosphere can. So Willis has been studying the ocean with a fleet of robotic instruments called the Argo system. The buoys can dive 3,000 feet down and measure ocean temperature. Since the system was fully deployed in 2003, it has recorded no warming of the global oceans.

The rest

3000 scientific robots can’t find the facts they want, in fact they found the oceans to be slightly cooling. They’ve got a real mystery on their hands alright. How will they keep up the lies when the facts don’t support them? Of course that’s never stopped Algore’s cult before.

Perhaps the warming is coming from the way the temperatures are taken. Look at this piece on how where you take the temperature makes a difference in the overall readings, and could be responsible for some of global warming statistics.
