Discussion > The missing heat

I can say with absolute certainty - it's not in my wife's feet.

In winter it's not in mine either, please pass on my sympathy to your wife.

Sandy, have you tried Icebreaker's Merino wool socks?

Blooming brilliant (if blooming expensive)!

There are 2 major issues with it being hidden in the deaths of the ocean.

1. How did it bypass the Argos system without being detected as it descended.

2. It it did get down to the depths, then considering the greater mass of the ocean compared to the atmosphere, why should it ever leave the depths and warm the atmosphere. So much for catastrophic warming if all that happens is the deep depths increase by 0.2C.

Thanks, I'll investigate.

Also, if it's colder than down there than it is up here, once the heat has finished up down there, how can the heat ever hope to get back out (other than with the aid of a friendly heat pump)?

Yup. If the heat really was disappearing into the ocean depths, then it would also be the death-knell for rapid warming over the next few centuries.

When I first started paying more attention to this issue (in the ~1990s media) the story was not that the warming would be harmful per se, but that it would be too rapid. The deep-ocean-ate-my-heat theory is another self-contradiction to add to the catalogue of cAGW alarmism.
