Climate Oscillations And The Global Warming Faux Pause

Climate Oscillations And The Global Warming Faux Pause – http://huff.to/1wsjlNX

The big thing everybody is missing is the energy balance.

Energy retained in the earth system is energy in minus energy out.

Measurements in specific locations are just details, the extra energy has to go somewhere.

That’s another way of testing the models, and the utility of measuring and estimates.  The extra energy is going somewhere, probably to warm the water given it has a very large majority of the heat capacity of the planet’s surface.

Also in time the subsurface land which normally doesn’t change much in temperature will retain more heat.

The surface ground and surface air has only a tiny fraction of the heat capacity of the portion of the planet that can absorb the incoming energy. 

Then the air at the surface rises when it gets hot, excess heat gets rapidly distributed.

The only thing surprising about that is that anybody is surprised. Everything I’m writing here is basic undergrad science, some of it high school science.
