    while the air temperature is not warming much. The whole "it hasn't warmed significantly since 1998" routine by self proclaimed skeptics ignores the enhanced warming of the oceans during that time period.

    That added ocean heat without balanced heating of the atmospheric makes the atmospheric system more unstable.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
