Ladies and gentlemen, this is called a party hole. I designed this hole by myself. And then some people were like “David, why do you call it a party hole? It’s just you. There’s no guests. No one else can join you.”
I hope you guys are watching Going Deep with David Rees, it’s my favorite program of the year. (via trinandtonic)
I accidentally watched some CNN at the airport today.
Oceanographers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have discovered the heat content change of the Earth has been severely underestimated. New calculations suggest that the amount of heat added to the Earth in the last 35 years is 24% to 58% higher than thought, due to poor sampling of ocean temperatures in the Southern Hemisphere. The results have global implications as the ocean absorbs over 90% of the heat due to trapping by greenhouse gases. The implications are that there has been greater net inflow of energy from the Sun, and greater amounts being stored in the world’s oceans.
The scientists obtained satellite measurements of sea surface heights, and combined it with ocean temperature data collected between 1970 and 2004, a 35 year period. The reason for using sea surface height is that the volume change of the ocean is intimately linked to temperature: water expands as it is being warmed and additional water is added by increased melt from land ice.
An analysis of the southern hemisphere reveals that global warming has been underestimated by 24% to 58%.
