Climate Science: Roger Pielke Sr.

There is an interesting post on the significance of the Levitus et al 2012 paper

Levitus, S., et al. (2012), World ocean heat content and thermosteric sea level change (0-2000), 1955-2010, Geophys. Res. Lett.,doi:10.1029/2012GL051106, in press

Comment On Ocean Heat Content “World Ocean Heat Content And Thermosteric Sea Level Change (0-2000), 1955-2010″ By Levitus Et Al 2012

This new post is on Niche Modeling and is titled

Levitus data on ocean forcing confirms skeptics, falsifies IPCC 

While, the lower diagnosed value of radiative imbalance raises questions on the skill of the models (and the IPCC reliance on them), it is important to distinguish between the three terms radiative imbalance, radiative forcing, and radiative feedback.  In terms of global averages their relationship can be written as

global radiative imbalance =  global radiative forcing + global radiative feedback.

The Levitus et al 2012 data provides a measure of the global average…
