This result was published back in April in reporter who covered the story.The headline was technically correct…but misleading. (I can also make up technically correct headlines: “Scientists Agree: Sea Levels are Rising, We are All Going to Die”) The researchers in April made a major adjustment to the first 1/4 of the satellite record, bringing those early sea levels up.Fortunately the climate models got all their major predictions wrong. Every serious skeptical scientist has been consistently saying essentially the same thing for over 20 years, yet most people have never heard the message — here it is, put simply enough for any lay reader willing to pay attention.will cause more evaporation from the oceans and that this extra water vapor will in turn lead to even more heat trapping because water vapor is the main greenhouse gas.And extra heat will cause even more evaporation, and so on.This amplification is built into all the climate models. The amount of amplification is estimated by assuming that nearly all the industrial-age warming is due to our CO, but rarely admit that two thirds of their projected temperature increases are due to amplification by feedbacks.They admit there are discrepancies, and go to great lengths to resolve them (see for example, Thorne, Dessler, Sherwood).
We’ve only been measuring ocean temperature properly since mid-2003, when the Argo system became operational.  In Argo, a buoy duck dives down to a depth of 2,000 meters, measures temperatures as it very slowly ascends, then radios the results back to headquarters via satellite.
This results in adding curvature to the upward trend (an acceleration) by flattening out the early part of the curve. Short-term undulations in the sea level rise curve should not be used as a predictive curve for the future.
This new signature of “acceleration” was what made the news in the new study, even though the long term trend went down. They are affected by a wide variety of natural phenomena.
Over three thousand Argo buoys constantly patrol all the oceans of the world.
The ocean temperature has been basically flat since we started measuring it properly, and not warming as quickly as the climate models predict.
A new brief summary of the reasoning and evidence behind the skeptics case.
