Global Warming Has NOT Affected The Abyss: Nasa reveals cold waters of Earth's deep ocean have not warmed since 2005

REMEMBER BACK IN 2008, WHEN OBAMA SAID HE COULD "SLOW THE RISE OF THE OCEAN AND HEAL THE PLANET"?  SOARING RHETORIC THAT GOT HIS ELECTED PRESIDENT.  BUT NOW WE FIND OUT HE CAN'T EVEN CREATE JOBS!  HE NO LONGER SEEKS TO UNITE AMERICANS BUT IS TRYING TO DIVIDE US JUST TO GAIN RE-ELECTION.  SO OF THE FOOLS THAT BROUGHT THE SNAKE OIL BACK IN 2008, HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT AND NOVEMBER 6, SHOULD BE A DAY OF RECKONING FOR THIS MAN.  A DAY TO REMEMBER!


The cold waters of Earth's deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005, according to a new Nasa study.
Researchers say that while the find does not throw suspicion on global warming, it is a mystery.

They say it cold be related to the fact global warming appears to have slowed in recent years.

Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013 and found the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles (1,995 meters) has not warmed measurably. 
Study coauthor Josh Willis of JPL said these findings do not throw suspicion on climate change itself.

'The sea level is still rising,' Willis noted. 'We're just trying to understand the nitty-gritty details.'

In the 21st century, greenhouse gases have continued to accumulate in the atmosphere, just as they did in the 20th century, but global average surface air temperatures have stopped rising in tandem with the gases. 

The temperature of the top half of the world's ocean -- above the 1.24-mile mark -- is still climbing, but not fast enough to account for the stalled air temperatures.

Many processes on land, air and sea have been invoked to explain what is happening to the 'missing' heat. 

One of the most prominent ideas is that the bottom half of the ocean is taking up the slack, but supporting evidence is slim. 
This latest study is the first to test the idea using satellite observations, as well as direct temperature measurements of the upper ocean. Scientists have been taking the
temperature of the top half of the ocean directly since 2005, using a network of 3,000 floating temperature probes called the Argo array.

'The deep parts of the ocean are harder to measure,' said JPL's William Llovel, lead author of the study, published Sunday, Oct. 5 in the journal Nature Climate Change.
