Read it and weep




From the NASA/NOAA news conference

And showing how NOAA "fixed the climate record" by making the trend smaller.

If you'd like a little background to that, I have a post explaining the adjustments to the land and ocean temperatures.

Climatologists have manipulated data to REDUCE global warming

If, while you are weeping, you happen to read the recently published Nature Climate Change article "Industrial-era global ocean heat uptake doubles in recent decades" by Gleckler et.al. and you see
this chart which shows that 50% of the heat added to the global ocean in the industrial age has been added since 1997, and the volume of your tears increases by an order of magnitude or two, please refrain from depositing those tears anywhere that will drain into the ocean. We've got enough problems with sea level rise without you adding to it.

Either that or I've been using the wrong dataset for these past few months.

We interrupt your regular scheduled "programming" to bring you this important message ...

IT'S A CONS PIRACY I TELL YOU, A GLOBAL CONS PIRACY!

NOAA, NASA and the UK Met office all release datasets and PR statements at the EXACT same UTC time.

What more PROOF do you need for a NEW WORLD ORDER!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled "programming" ...

David, yes, but sea level rise is the least problem. The next least trivial is the heat content. What makes any elderly oceanographer weep is the plastic content, the destruction of fish, and now the acidification...

December 2015 was the first time a monthly anomaly exceeded 1C from baseline for HadCRUt4.

Florifulgurator, coincidentally the Australian ABC spoke on this subject about an hour and a half ago:
