An Excellent 'Pro' Global Warming Story
I have often been critical of Nature's reporting on global warming (just scroll down to see one example). I want to congratulate them on an excellent story here.
The one missing element is solar effects. Do I think when we move more toward an El Nino will we see temperatures 'spike'? Yes, unless the odd behavior of the sun is able to overwhelm the oceanic effects. We have no way of knowing because we have spent too little effort in investigating the sun's influence on earth's climate.
So, yes, I believe there is something to the ocean influence hypothesis outlined in the article. I also believe the sun plays more of a role than most climate scientists believe.
We live in scientifically interesting times.
