Good grief!!! And, this is what happens when you have a bunch of dishonestly constructed data sets. Eventually, they’ll contradict the babbling inanity of the lunatics.
The Hockey Schtick has this ……
Kevin “it’s a travesty!” Trenberth has published a new paper today in the Journal of Climate, which shows that the rate of change of global ocean heat content hasdecreased since ~2001, contradicting his prior claim that the ‘pause’ of global warming can be explained by an increase in the rate of ocean ‘missing heat’ uptake.
They then post one of the graphs from the paper …..
Now, clearly, as the graph shows, the rate of heat uptake is diminishing after about 2001, not increasing. Of course, there’s only a gadzillion things wrong with this graph and the many others along with the information presented in the paper. The first being the presumption that we know what the OHC is. We don’t today, we certainly didn’t know what it was in the “base period” (1958-65). This model being used by Trenberth is used only because it agrees with a bunch of other lunatics’ models presuming to know what the OHC was 5 decades ago. It’s stupid. But, this is much of what the Global Warming lunacy is based upon ….. crap that no one can objectively state that we know. It’s based upon utter fantasy.
Still, it’s hysterically funny to see the own goal being made here. Well, it’s a peer-reviewed paper so the lunatics have to accept this as objective fact, amirite?
Here’s part of the conclusions from the paper ……
While previous estimates of OHC changes over time have revealed an overall upward trend, their agreement with regard to interannual and even inter-decadal variability has been lacking. An obvious key issue is the extent to which the main large climate signals associated with volcanic eruptions and ENSO are clearly evident in the OHC tendencies. ORAS4 has clear volcanic signals following Mt. Agung (1963), El Chichón (1982) and Pinatubo (1991) eruptions, but they are not as clear in other OHC reconstructions, in part because of inadequate temporal resolution.
Understand the logical acrobatics necessary to come to such conclusions. It’s insane to believe any of this. They’ve come up with a model which gives us better temporal resolution for the information of which we don’t know in the in the first place.
The lunatics live in a world of coloring books, unicorns, and monsters under the bed,a nd pretend their scientists investigating such.
