Models Saved: Always a new corner to hide in
Posted by Jeff Condon on September 19, 2011
Deep ocean temperatures are some of the least known. Records are short and incomplete – sound familiar. Trenberths missing heat has now been found, or maybe not. Like money in the hands of politicians, green climate energy is slippery stuff.
If anyone has a link to the paper, I don’t have time to look but it may make for an interesting discussion.
Trenberth (still apologizing to his friends for his climategate quote) is quoted in the article:
Kevin Trenberth, a study author and NCAR scientist, said: “… this study suggests the missing energy has indeed been buried in the ocean, the heat has not disappeared and so it cannot be ignored. It must have consequences.”
I thought we were the ones who ‘misinterpreted’ him that the heat was missing. It looks like in fact we stupid skeptics may have read the comment exactly correctly and the heat was missing, models were too high and now it’s back. How long until deep ocean ‘forcing’ -not feedback- is changed in models? CO2 is still the badguy, skeptics are always wrong, and the mission continues.
