The effects of Global Warming can also be capitalized on. The best way to do that is to do nothing which is exactly what the US government has done regarding all of it. One side says it's happening, the other laughs and scoffs and say it's impossible for us to have any effect on the climate... the result? Little more than words.
Meanwhile the climate is changing and already having drastic effects in various areas and on various peoples, doing nothing ensures who gets to manage the consequences.
Regarding the topic...
Yes the oceans are warming, at the surface and down to about 600m it's fairly clear that AGW is responsible, if the very deep oceans are in fact warming as well, it's less clear and I'd like to read the scientific opinions on why.

then last week we went to Trearddur Bay, Isle of Anglesey same again very cold water

Does this mean Global Warming is back .....
According to climate depot, dated 7/8/2013, there has been no arctic ice melt north of 80n this year, and as heat rises, seems like the heat is just not enough to affect Arctic ice at all.
Going back a year, to 4/12/2012, largest amount ever recorded of ice in the Bering sea since records began.
Just why is the northern hemisphere having such cold summers? Alaska has only just come into its 'spring' !
A couple weeks back I went to the wife's family reunion and her uncle and his wife were down from Wasilla, Alaska and they said that it had been in the 90's for weeks up there. She said that she has lived in Wasilla for 30 years and never seen it hit 90 degrees before. So, although they had a drastically wet and deep snow well into spring, they are now having one hell of a hot summer!edit on 13-7-2013 by Rezlooper because: (no reason given)edit on 13-7-2013 by Rezlooper because: (no reason given)
