I’d rather just defer to the Koch brothers on matters of science. I am their errand boy after all.

Study at link. Oceans only warmed 0.01 C in last 50 years.

Big problem!

Bless your heart CUF4, you can't even quote an article correctly.

The ocean has warmed by ~0.1 degrees celsius over the last 50 years, not 0.01. But we typically don't look at the whole ocean, because most of the ocean is not influenced much by the surface temperatures because the ocean is pretty deep. Ocean circulation takes ~1200 years.

If you look at sea surface temperature trends, which are the temperatures in the first 100m of the ocean, then temperatures look like this.

Temperatures at the sea surface have increased by about 1 degree fahreheneit since 1970, or 0.56 degrees celsius. Doesn't seem like much until you think about the heat capacity of the world's oceans. This is less than the atmosphere, but that is to be expected, since it takes a lot longer to heat water than air.

A definitely atypical and kinda crazy temp spike during the early to mid '40s, which makes me wonder 1) what accounts for that? and 2) who the hell was out in the ocean measuring temperatures during World War II? If I'm a climatologist in, say, 1943, I'm thinking to myself "you know, one place I'm not going right now is in the ocean with just a thermometer".

I'm sure the sampling representativeness during WWII was affected by the conflict. The uncertainty interval for that spike is much larger than the surrounding periods. Doesn't mean it is not real, just that we have a lot less confidence in what was going on during that time period.

Newport, RI complains about radical increases in electricity due to wind farm.

Weren’t we told wind mills were cheaper? Scam.

Story below shows what a laughable scam global warming is. Shills buried in snow sell their scam to global elites.

Meat consumption causes global warming. Therefore, tax it.

James Hansen: There might be a pause in global warming but don’t worry: it’s fake.

Bless your heart CUF4,

I'm not sure why you are inserting your own interpretation of this paper somehow showing a "pause". Hansen didn't say there was a pause. The data don't show a pause.
How does the second highest global average temperature year on record indicate a "pause" in warming? Can you explain your reasoning?
