Of concern to many global warming proponents is the impact of increasing temperatures on our oceans. But according to a news release by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, it appears new research is throwing some cold water on this ocean warming hype. According to the report, some 3,000 scientific robots were fully deployed in 2003 to study this issue, and since that time have recorded no warming whatsoever — in fact, there even seems to be a slight cooling. Since much, if not most, of the global warming concern arises from warming oceans melting away polar caps and causing increased flooding, this new study seems to indicate, according to the scientists involved, that “we may be in a period of less rapid warming.”
