Anthony Watts is a former weather man that makes the news from time to time by making outlandish, and unsubstantiated, claims. His claims are very weak, have no supporting science and are routinely debunked by reputable sources. But, the climate deniers love him, so he makes the news.
I’ll have more to say about Watts and his claims in future postings, but take a look at this video to get a good idea of who he is.
Dr. James McCarthy testified at a Senate hearing on Wednesday that the temperature deep in the ocean is increasing. This is very important. Water is very difficult to warm up and the amount of water in the world’s oceans is very large. So, it would take a very great deal of energy to noticeably warm the oceans. But, that is just what is happening.
Dr. McCarthy’s testimony (as well as the rest of the day’s hearing) can be seen here.
I wonder how the global warming deniers will try to spin this one.
