Climate Change: Driven by the Ocean not Human Activity

William M. Gray
Professor Emeritus, Dept of Atmospheric Science,
Colorado State University


"This paper discusses how the variation in the global ocean's Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) resulting from changes in the Atlantic Thermohaline Circulation (THC) and deep water Surrounding Antarctica Subsidence (SAS) can be the primary cause of climate change. (MOC = THC + SAS) is the likely cause of most of the global warming that has been observed since the start of the industrial revolution (~1850) and for the more recent global warming that has occurred since the mid-1970s. Changes of the MOC since 1995 are hypothesized to have lead to the cessation of global warming since 1998 and to the beginning of a weak global cooling that has occurred since 2001. This weak cooling is projected to go on for the next couple of decades".

  1. Auringon vaikutus?

    “Last week, Nicola Scafetta and Richard C. Willson published a peer reviewed paper in which they revealed a considerable Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) increase of 0.033 % per decade between the solar activity minima of 1986 and 1996, which is comparable to the 0.037 % found in the ACRIM composite.

    The Sun affects climate dynamics in many more ways than merely electromagnetic radiation, even though this has been the predominant preoccupation of the scientific community that inquires into this phenomenon.
    There is solar plasma, the Sun’s electromagnetic field and the electromagnetic structures created by the Sun in the Heliosphere. See Professor Brian Tinsley’s home page for a good way into this work ( ). His view is that about half of the global warming over the past century can be accounted for by the impact of the solar processes he and associates study.

    Tämä uusi hypoteesi jättää auringon vaikutuksen pois (tai ainakin tutkija vähättelee sitä).
