"The confusion on this subject lies in the fact that only about 2 percent of global warming is used in heating air, whereas about 90 percent of global warming goes into heating the oceans (the rest heats ice and land masses). But humans live at the Earth's surface, and thus we tend to focus on surface temperatures. Over the past 10–15 years, Earth's surface temperature has continued to rise, but slowly. At the same time, the warming of the oceans – and the warming of the Earth as a whole – has accelerated."

Forbes on Science, you know that's gotta be good for a few laughs. As if Big Energy aren't their best buddies!

Never too late to bring back those golden oldies like "global cooling," especially after a chilly winter...LOL

toxic topix AGW deniers think that giving neg. icons supports exxon, like Forbes believes that writing wrongly about science, supports exxon.

May be! LOL. Also in multiples.

Perhaps their pay is proportional to their weekly icon counts!!!!

Good old Larry does it all.

As FAST as the land. The temperature will eventually be at 'equilibrium' which is the same temperature for land, sea and air surface. But the huge thermal mass of the ocean mans that it takes longer to warm up. And has more effect on climate as it does..

Very interesting, do climate scientists have a forecast as to when temperature will eventually be at 'equilibrium'?
Seems like the last time such an event occurred was during a time that is known as 'Snowball Earth'.

Pending confirmation, that actually appears to be a "fact." What fun!

It is an exponential decay function with lag, so it is not exactly definable as AGW is increasing at the same time. Climate models can work out the trend over time (as they have) and this can be confirmed against total thermal content (as it has).

That is a non-sequitur and total nonsense. The equilibrium is always the point where the climate trends and is always a little bit out of balance, even during the Snowball Earth period.

WILDFIRE SEASON IN CALIFORNIA OFF TO AN EARLY START
Wildfires gripping Ventura County, Calif., have spread to 28,000 acres, forced evacuations and laid waste to thousands of acres of woodland. The 1,895 fire personnel has managed to contain about 30% of the flames, and so far the only injuries — to a firefighter and a civilian — came in a traffic accident away from the fire. While 4,000 homes remain under threat, only 15 had been damaged and, fortunately, none destroyed.

The Southern California wildfires have marked an early and ominous start to the state’s fire season. So far, firefighters in California have responded to more than 680 wildfires this year — 200 more the average for this point in the season. The fires have been fueled by unusually dry conditions and 25 to 60 mph winds that usually aren’t seen until late fall The fire risk isn’t expected to let up as the summer goes on — forecasters doubt the Southern California region will receive substantial rain this summer, which has led federal officials to warn of a potentially “devastating” fire season for the state.

And California’s isn’t alone. Multiple studies have linked the risk of stronger, more frequent wildfires to the effects of climate change — most recently, a federal report warned that climate change will double the area of the U.S. burned by wildfires by 2050. Thanks to dry, hot conditions in much of the western U.S., the National Interagency Fire Center predicted this week that fire season could begin early in Oregon and Washington this year as well as in California.
Thanks to ongoing drought conditions and increasing temperatures in the American West, fire season may come early this year, as it has more frequently in recent years. As climate change intensifies, the West is expected to continue a warming and drying trend.
