    Ocean Warming Is Accelerating Faster Than Thought, New Research Finds

    Scientists say the world’s oceans are warming far more quickly than previously thought, a finding with dire implications for climate change because almost all the excess heat absorbed by the planet ends up stored in their waters.

    A new analysis, published Thursday in the journal Science, found that the oceans are heating up 40 percent faster on average than a United Nations panel estimated five years ago. The researchers also concluded that ocean temperatures have broken records for several straight years.

    “2018 is going to be the warmest year on record for the Earth’s oceans,” said Zeke Hausfather, an energy systems analyst at the independent climate research group Berkeley Earth and an author of the study. “As 2017 was the warmest year, and 2016 was the warmest year.”

    I thought Florida was supposed to be underwater ten years ago. What happened?

      So, once again we see that climate scientists are unable to make accurate predictions about the climate. What else is new? It is extremely difficult to make accurate predictions. The further into the future one predicts the more minor imperfections in the theory will cause large deviations in results. This is true for climate, the stock market, and just about everything else.

      Increasing warmth and CO2 levels correlate with increased food production and improved living conditions for people. Historically, the Earth is coming out of an ice age and the climate is cooler than normal.

            Berkeley Planet would be a better moniker for a group living in their own world.

              Our CO2 emissions are down something like 13% - 14% since 2005 despite a growing population and a growing GDP.


              What do you suggest we do? Bomb China's coal plants?


              Are you giving up your car? Air conditioning? Beef? Maybe you start small by just taking fewer showers?


              What? No? None of those things? You just want a big fat carbon tax? :rolleyes3:

                If Ocasio gets her way, you will be giving up all those things and more.

                  Ocasio and her ilk will help us win the House back in two years.

                    All good questions.
                    Me, I'm buying land in Wyoming. I figure that'll be the new garden spot in 50 years.

                          First we have to agree there is an issue before we address the issue. I do agree a carbon tax makes sense, not so sure it has to be "fat" right off the bat.

                          I do think we should do things that help, and have other positive side effects. I'm not for big unilateral actions by the US. I don't think whatever we do will have a dramatic effect either way. I also think we need to at least start thinking about the consequences that we are probably already experiencing and preparing for them.

                              I said it before and I'll say it again.....we'll have 280 or more seats after the 2020's. These lies and non action bit them when they held the POTUS.....I can't imagine what it will do when they don't.

                                There are really no circumstances, in non Presidential elections years the President's party usually loses seats and it's majority. This time around it was a smaller loss than normal, much better than OBama's off year elections.
