Sea and Oceans

Sea level is a key measurement given all of the media attention and AGW scientists' focus.   Add to that acidity and the concern for GW rises.    It is well publicized that somehow the sea level is directly tied to human emissions of CO2.  Nothing is proven on this question, but there is a lot of history and data to strongly suggest otherwise.  


Recent claims of a sea level rise increase have been greatly exaggerated and show the importance of looking inside a data summary.  Link, and in fact sea level for the past year has been near constant indicating a pause


See the following references for more details, but we are currently in a pause of the sea level.   

Ocean Cycles are numerous and do matter greatly in making the climate.

US Climate and Pacific Ocean Cycle  how the PDO cycle and US climate track

Ocean Acidification  the basics.  Since the ocean is alkaline and has a buffering process the idea of acidification of the oceans literally makes no sense.  

Ocean Absorption of CO2 is essential to better understanding how the oceans do absorb CO2.

Sea Level Rise Revised Downward an article by Roy Spencer on how the scare data is not true for the sea level.

Dr Soon on Sea Level is a definitive video on this measurement and how it is not as large as IPCC believes.

Ocean Warming Nil Since 1979  is counter to the alarmists who postulate that the pause in temperature for the past 20 years is caused by the oceans warming. 

Pause in the Sea Level Rise for the past year is instructive that the sea level is also a complex entity.

US Climate and Pacific Ocean Cycle shows how the Pacific Ocean cycle of PDO affects the climate in the US.





Section for a video or follow-on comment

We should revisit occasionally what the proper role of government is.   As the constitution was a good sense of direction, we need a core set of principles to add in order to deal with the future.


So many want to engineer society, remove risk, assist certain groups, rather than let individuals thrive and raise communities.  Why?


Is Democracy where we all "get it good and hard" or is it the best means to a free society?


Should we roll with the special interests, or make the government achieve its proper role, what is that role, and how to do this?


When do deficits and governments become too large?


Government is becoming more elitist while trying to sell corrections to problems it created, what makes this possible?


Could include a pic

This could also be inserted into the field above, or erased


Currently as a society, we are having a most difficult time discussing political issues.  What is driving this?   And why a rebirth in political culture would be a good thing.


Market Economy

Are "markets" dead as some would conjecture? Or is free enterprise what got us here?


Economic Theories

At the heart of economics there are several possible economic schools of thought, the essence of these schools of thought and how they relate to our lives.
