"I'm sorry Al, I can't do that." I'm predicting an oceanwalk by the Goracle to shut down H.A.L. The robots MUST be malfunctioning if they don't show the global warming that a "CONSENSUS" of scientists say is happening.
According to National Public Radio:
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.HELLLLOOOOO???? Earth to Willis. Perhaps that means THERE IS NO GLOBAL WARMING!!! It is religion that ignores contrary data, not science. In science, if the data contradicts your hypothesis, you modify the hypothesis.
"There has been a very slight cooling, but not anything really significant," Willis says. So the buildup of heat on Earth may be on a brief hiatus. "Global warming doesn't mean every year will be warmer than the last. And it may be that we are in a period of less rapid warming."
This is a must-read story that shows how little we really know about the climate of this planet. Far too little to say that we are warming, cooling, or anything else with any certainty.
