The PAUSE IS BACK and it is now lengthier than "evah""
In the atmosphere and in the ocean. Where else would it be?
So 1/3 of all the carbon dioxide that was discharged by man was discharged in this century. Now the question remains - where is all the heat????
Why is there no doubt? Is not OHC rebounding? Is the data wrong?
But there is also no doubt that the heat has not been re-absorbed back into the ocean.
Really? Global warming says that there can't be temporary variations in forcing?
The only place the heat could be is transferred into space. But global warming says that can't be happening.
It has risen.
If heat had been re-absorbed in the ocean, OHC would have risen.
Global Temperature Anomaly vs Ocean Heat Content:
Third Quarter of 2016: 0.88, 19.146
Forth Quarter of 2016: 0.76, 21.558
They didn't "find the heat" they found a source of bias in the instrumentation which had not been considered in the previous temperature models.
How is the Pause to be erased by the Pausebuster Study and Zeke Hausfather's latest study and the other 50 or so different scientific studies saying there never was a Pause because the found the heat, if the Pause keeps coming back?
Is that what Dr. Bates said happened?
They created a warming bias by 'adjusting" good buoy data with "bad" ship data and declared the Pause erased.
“The issue here is not an issue of tampering with data,” he said, “but rather really of timing of a release of a paper that had not properly disclosed everything it was.”
The average for the quarters ending September and December, actually. The most recent data available since the end of the El Nino event.
You state the heat is in the ocean by comparing OHC in Oct and Dec 2016
