Gavin has been telling us for years that the reason the northern oceans are warmer than the southern oceans is because there is more land in the Northern Hemisphere – which is causing global warming to happen faster there.
Now that the northern seas have turned cold, global warming theory is again sent down the disposal.

As I told Gavin and company years ago before he banned me from RC. Long term natural weather patterns are a better fit to the current conditions than Anthropogenic Climate Change, But it was Global Warming at the time.
Those oceans are cold because they are warm. We’re past the tipping point don’t you see?
I can see Kevin’s missing heat off the Cape of Good Hope.
Warm water in the area where hurricanes develop. Could be an active season.
There’s a little warm spot in the Grand Banks area. Volcano?
You plot is of a single day? The statement about northern oceans is for an annual average?
Sea Surface temperatures do not change rapidly, because the ocean has a huge thermal mass. Had the ocean gained heat as Hansen predicted over the last few decades, it would be impossible to ever have a day below the mean.
Don’t you know that sea surface temperatures can fluctuate by 20C from month to month? I am sure the models can be adjusted to show that!
That is why it takes two weeks of below freezing temperatures for my pond to get an ice skim on top and another week to start freezing.
Water is soo much more variable than air! 😉
There is even more inertia in sea level vs. sea surface temperature (SST) and yet even more than temperature, surging sea levels have been promoted as the central issue at stake. I have looked at the several dozen or more century old tide gauge records and am now standing here telling all you math guys to figure out how to statistically quantify sea level records instead of just keep discounting them as unreliable. I do not see claimed unreliability in the charts themselves. The are bluntly linear, most of them, the old ones, most all if them.
