More on global warming

The current issue of The Economist has an article summarizing new research results. The research indicates that global average deep sea temperatures have been rising even more rapidly in this century than they had been since 1970. This would seem to explain the pause in the increase in global average air temperature. Clearly it takes a lot of energy to raise the temperature of a layer of the world/s oceans. The graphs above show the global average, and also that the Atlantic Ocean seems to have had a more rapid increase for several years starting in 2000.
