Powerline is counting down the days to the latest climate report.
There is some data to support the hypothesis of ocean warming, but nowhere near enough. And there are the several anomalies about why the ocean–but not the air–would be absorbing all the heat. And why the deep ocean, rather than surface waters? One of the leading “mainstream/consensus” climate scientists told me in June that he was “certain” that ocean warming explained the pause. I didn’t think to ask him just when or where the climate models had previously predicted that this might happen; that the temperature slowdown and ocean warming were surprises ought to tell us something.
How to make the data fit their theories - that's making them hot.
