Here is the abstract from the Hansen study 2005-2010. The first paragraph shows an energy imbalance of .58 watts, meaning earth is taking in more energy than is being radiated out. When you look at the second paragraph you see -1.6 watts. That -1.6 is the decline of energy imbalance from the previous study period 1993-2008.<quoted text>
We just started measuring the deep oceans about 10 years ago, how do we even know what is "normal" in regards to the warming of the deep oceans?
Even James Hansen says the oceans are taking up less heat and claims aerosols and a solar minimum are the cause.
