Oceans Buck Global Warming

While it does not mean there is no such thing as global warming, the seas are acting funny. According to NPR "80 percent to 90 percent of global warming involves heating up ocean waters" yet somehow the oceans are cooling without significant atmospheric warming. Where is the heat going and how does this affect the grand scheme of things, who knows?

The latest news about climate change is so alarming (the right wing would say alarmist) as to make many people want to plant their aching heads in the sand. Some scientists using advanced computer models now argue that if we want to stop the Earth from warming, the amount of carbon we should be emitting is ... none. None? As in, zero? As in, shutting down the global industrial economy? After all, global energy demand is expected to accelerate until at least 2020. Yet attempts even to slow the rate of increase of carbon emissions have paralyzed world politics for more than a decade.
