Oceans May Not Be Coming to a Boil After All

At this point, the only reasonable option is to panic. Scientists have discovered that over the past 25 years, oceans have absorbed 60% more heat than previously thought! According to the scientists, this means we have less time than we knew to suppress greenhouse gas emissions like hitherto harmless CO2.

Sell your house at once while you can still get something for it. Head for high ground before the seas rise from melting ice. The heat will be lethal, so go north. Maybe in the mountains of Alaska the last humans might hold out for a few more years…

Oh wait. Never mind:

Two weeks after the high-profile study was published in the journal Nature, its authors have submitted corrections to the publication. The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, home to several of the researchers involved, also noted the problems in the scientists’ work and corrected a news release on its website, which previously had asserted that the study detailed how the Earth’s oceans “have absorbed 60 percent more heat than previously thought.”

Typically of global warming research that produces hysterical findings, the researchers did not adequately address the uncertainty in their measurements.

As a result, the findings suffer from too much doubt to definitively support the paper’s conclusion about how much heat the oceans have absorbed over time.

The flaws in the research were discovered by independent British researcher Nicholas Lewis, who revealed them in a blog post. Lewis said of the ballyhooed paper by establishment researchers from around the world led by Laure Resplandy of Princeton University, “it’s fairly obvious it didn’t make sense.”

Funny how errors are always in favor of anthropogenic global warming being a terrible catastrophe that justifies taxes and regulations on a life-altering scale.

An inquisitive researcher ought to look into the likely correlation between government grant money received and the severity of the prognostications of doom that are produced in return for it.

On a tip from Lyle.
