Chart of the Day

Figure 1 from Craig Loehle's article "Cooling of the global ocean since 2003," Energy and Environment, Volume 20 (2009) (abstract only; similar figures in Loehle's Heartland presentation, pages 22-24):

As Jennifer Marohasy explains:
Craig Loehle has analysed the data from only the profiling floats for ocean heat content from 2003 to 2008. In a paper recently published in the journal Energy and Environment he has concluded that there has been ocean cooling over this period. . .

Dr Loehle’s findings are consistent with satellite and surface instrumental records that do not showing a warming trend over recent years.

This could be a statistic that supports a warming theory.
If the icecaps were shrinking, wouldn't the ocean cool after you dumped all that ice in it?

I'm just askin'
