CO2 warming the oceans

“…water takes a lot of energy to heat up, and air doesn’t contain much. In fact, on a volume/volume basis, the ratio of heat capacities is about 3300 to 1. This means that to heat 1 litre of water by 1˚C it would take 3300 litres of air that was 2˚C hotter, or 1 litre of air that was about 3300˚C hotter!”

“This shouldn’t surprise anyone. If you ran a cold bath and then tried to heat it by putting a dozen heaters in the room, does anyone believe that the water would ever get hot?”

“The problem gets even stickier when you consider the size of the ocean. Basically, there is too much water and not enough air.”

“The ocean contains a colossal 1,500,000,000,000,000,000,000 litres of water! To heat it, even by a small amount, takes a staggering amount of energy. To heat it by a mere 1˚C, for example, an astonishing 6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 joules of energy are required.”

“Let’s put this amount of energy in perspective. If we all turned off all our appliances and went and lived in caves, and then devoted every coal, nuclear, gas, hydro, wind and solar power plant to just heating the ocean, it would take a breathtaking 32,000 years to heat the ocean by just this 1˚C!”

Sooner or later, citizens will start prosecuting and jailing the fraudsters promoting  global warming. The scale and collusion of this fraud makes Enron look like child’s play.

4 Responses to CO2 warming the oceans

  1. The issue isn’t CO2, 2C, CH4, sea level rise or abrupt climate collapse – all that is disinfo.

    The greatest threat to humankind is the colossal tsunami waves – similar to those that previously decimated our world. This rapidly approaching cataclysm will most likely be considerably more catastrophic than all the previous cataclysms put together. Very few survivors are expected. This forecast is the result of thousands of independent sources, translated from over a dozen languages.

  2. Mr. Bromley, glacial water freezes at 0 Celsius while ocean water freezes at – 1.8 Celsius. This difference is more than three degrees Fahrenheit, from 28.8 F to 32 F. The massive volumes of glacial water flowing into the Antarctic seas was freezing more rapidly than the sea water which resulted in an increase of sea ice, however, as the heat has continued to escalate, sea ice has now dropped to alarmingly low levels.

  3. Our oceans are abnormally warm because of massive heat coming off the seafloor volcanoes – from the Arctic to the Antarctic. This unusually warm ocean water results in rapid evaporation which results in increased cloud cover, record-breaking rainfall and raging flood waters – all across the world – while the warm ocean water also melts the sea ice and the undersides of the ice shelves – in the Arctic and in the Antarctic.

    Glacial lakes, glacial rivers and glacial waterfalls are found all across the Antarctic, along with huge cracks, crevasses, pressure zones, etc. This follows the 2014 of river tunnels 1,000 feet high in the underside of the ice shelves – due to the warm sea water.

    A few days ago, the New York Times reported that the Ross Ice Shelf is now only one hundred feet above sea level – if this is true, the Ross Ice Shelf, which is 90% under water, has lost 1,000 feet – from top to bottom – as a result of the abnormally warm sea water.

    Keep in mind that green algae has recently been reported in both the Arctic and Antarctic – green algae requires 45 degree temperatures to grow. This tells us that sea temperatures in the Antarctic are up another five degrees since 2016.

    What happens next is the ice shelves collapse, followed by the collapse of billions of tons of glaciers that extend up to the mountain tops at 10,000 feet. Some of those chunks of ice are the size of Mexico so if you imagine plopping Mexico into the Pacific you’ll begin to get an idea of how big the tsunami waves will be. This isn’t science fiction – it’s history repeating itself – but few people are aware of the true history of our Earth, so the vast majority of the public are sitting ducks.

    This map show the water that sits beneath the Antarctic ice shelves and glaciers – which is to say the glaciers have inadequate support – the chances of the billions of tons of glaciers crashing into the sea is rapidly increasing: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e0/AntarcticaRockSurface.jpg

    This forecast is the result of decades of research in Chemistry, Physics, geological anomalies, cataclysms, hundreds of historic documents from all across the world, including reports in the Captain’s Logs, and thousands of other independent sources.

    • budbromley says:

      “The graph of NSIDC data shows the maximum extent for each September since 1979 in millions of square kilometers. There is a lot of variability from year to year, though the overall trend shows growth of about 0.9 percent per decade.” ,,,in overall polar ice extent… Antarctic sea ice increased by roughly 17,100 square kilometers per year from 1979 to 2010.” In other documents, the onland icepack or glacial extent and depth has also grown significantly overall, though there is that one northern peninsula where the glacier appears to be about to calve into the sea. https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=79369
