Between 1993 and 2008, the study finds, the upper 700 meters of the oceans absorbed about 0.6 watts per square meter of energy. That is roughly equivalent to the power of 2 billion copies of the atomic bomb the United States dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, during World War II, said lead author John Lyman, an oceanographer at the University of Hawaii's Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research.Read more at the New York Times.

The Oceans are Warming
Yet again, there is more evidence that the earth is warming. This time the data is from the oceans, not air temperatures. I do not know how there can still be climate deniers with all this data from global warming. Are they just going to say it's all fake. That's pretty much what their whole argument is based on, that data from 98% of climate scientists is fake. However, the studies done by the other 2% is correct. It isn't a small majority, it's an overwhelming majority of scientists who say global warming is true. According to the climate "realists," we should believe the 2%. Do we really want to take a risk hat big with our planet?
