Another excuse for ‘the pause’ – small eddies in the southern ocean

So having moved at breathtaking speed from denying the pause to 57 flavours of it, we are now on a collision course to 101 Reasons for the Pause (and why d£ni€r$ just don’t get Thermageddon)’ I look forward to the compendium volume 1001 Carbon Excuses – why we are still going to burn and why it’s still all your fault which should arrive just about the time AR6 and 110% confidence lands on us. #Repent

Watts Up With That?

From the University of New South Wales:

Sea surface temperature from a fine-resolution (1/10° ⪝ 12 km grid spacing) from GFDL’s CM2.6 model. The view is of the South Atlantic and shows Agulhas eddies originating near the Cape of Good Hope (bottom right of image).

Small eddies produce global effects on climate change

The increasing strength of winds over the Southern Ocean has extended its ability to absorb carbon dioxide, effectively delaying the impacts of global warming.

New research published in the Journal of Physical Research found the intensifying wind over that ocean increased the speed and energy of eddies and jets, which are responsible in large part for the movement of nutrients, heat and salt across the ocean basin.

The increased movement and overturning of these eddies and jets has accelerated the carbon cycle and driven more heat…

  1. In fact, reports of altered temperature data ended the AGW debate.

    The data were altered to hide effects of a secret solar force that produced, in solar cycle #24, the lowest sunspot number recorded since 1750. (Sunspots are produced when powerful, deep-seated magnetic fields emerge through the photosphere.)

    The unacknowledged solar force was publicly pointed out in 2002.
