Analysis: ‘Big Claims About Tiny Numbers’ in ‘record ocean temp’ study – ‘Angst is about a temperature change of three & a half thousandths of one degree. EVERYONE PANIC!!’
Willis Eschenbach: A new paper yclept “New Record Ocean Temperatures and Related Climate Indicators in 2023“ … So all the angst is about a temperature change of three and a half thousandths of one degree. EVERYONE PANIC!! But that wasn’t the interesting part. The interesting part is their uncertainty… Their claimed uncertainty says that four ARGO floats could measure the temperature of the entire global ocean to an uncertainty of less than one tenth of one degree … yeah, right.
Sadly, I fear that’s as far as I got in their paper … I was laughing too hard to continue. I’m sure it’s all sciency and everything, but they lost me by hyperventilating over an ocean warming of three and a half thousandths of a degree and put me over the edge by claiming an impossibly small uncertainty.

https://notrickszone.com/2023/08/09/oceans-retain-methane-new-nature-study-finds-very-little-danger-of-methane-reaching-surface/ By P Gosselin on 9. August 2023 A Nature study finds there’s very little risk that global warming would lead to more methane escaping from the oceans into the atmosphere. Hat-tip: EIKE here. Global warming alarmists have often used the scenario of increased methane in the atmosphere accelerating warming and climatic change. But a recent study appearing in Nature, Negligible […]
Wrong, Mainstream Media, Florida’s Sea Water Is Not Setting Records – Single spot measured was ‘not an ocean buoy’ & ‘not in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean’
Meteorologist Anthony Watts: “”The media missed is that MNBF1 is not an ocean buoy at all, in fact it is partially inland, designated as part of the Everglades National Park, and not in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean…” On this Google Earth closeup, seen in Figure 3, we can see this buoy is in exceptionally shallow water, near the shoreline- you can see the bottom of the bay.
“The media completely missed the fact that this sort of temperature at that buoy has happened before and this was not the highest temperature ever seen there. The record for the Manatee Bay site is 102 degrees. It was set on Aug. 15, 2017. … if they had bothered to check tide table, they would have learned that the high temperature correlated with a lower than normal tide, which allowed the subsurface structures heated by the sun to also contribute to heating the water.”
Extreme Weather Expert Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.: “Science journalism is broken. No it is not a world record. It’s not even the highest at that station in the past 6 years. When did journalists and editors stop doing journalism and start turning incorrect but viral Tweets into headlines? Recipe for misinformation.”
Florida Meteorologist Jeff Berardelli told CNBC: “These buoys that are inside Florida Bay – so that’s to the north of the Florida Keys and to the South Florida peninsula- they’re all in very shallow, murky, dark water…it’s contaminated with sediment, the water temperatures are reflective of the fact that darker surfaces absorb more heat…it’s not really comparable to most water measurements…there are no official records that are kept on water temperature.”
Even though CNBC debunked the ‘hot tub’ ocean temperature claims, its sister organization MSNBC went full alarmist, ignoring CNBC reporting. See: MSNBC Warns of ‘Boiling Seas’ from Climate Change – MSNBC warned Monday of ‚””boiling seas- due to climate change, citing ocean readings of 100¬∫F off the coast of Florida. Never shy about employing incendiary rhetoric, MSNBC seems to have forgotten that while the boiling point of water is 100¬∫ Celsius, it is actually 212¬∫ on the Fahrenheit scale.

Great Barrier Reef in record coral cover but 97% of Australians don’t know it – Only 3% know the true state of the Reef!
https://joannenova.com.au/2023/04/great-barrier-reef-in-record-coral-cover-but-97-of-australians-dont-know-it/ By Jo Nova Only 3% of Australians know the true state of the Reef! Ten years ago, coral cover on the Great Barrier Reef hit record lows. The news has been full of dire reports of bleaching ever since, but quietly, a phenomenal recovery was blossoming across the full 2,000 kilometer span of the […]
https://joannenova.com.au/2023/04/the-science-is-settled-but-we-just-found-19000-new-volcanoes/ By Jo Nova What would we know? Underwater seamounts are one to four kilometer high mountains that mostly used to be a volcano. But under a kilometer of water they are hard to see, holy smoke, and we know more about the moon than the bottom of the Mariana, and it’s only 11km “away”. […]
World’s coral reefs not declining, new paper reveals – ‘Corals are amazingly adaptable to climate change’
Shapeshifting corals are amazingly adaptable to climate change London, 8 February – A new paper published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation refutes alarmist claims about the state of the world’s coral reefs. According to the author, eminent reef scientist Peter Ridd, the official data show no signs of any long-term trends in reef health. Indeed, the […]

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projects that a 2 degrees C of warming would […]
