Global Warming as Viewed from the Deep Ocean
Description: Global atmospheric temperatures have been stable, or even declined slightly, over the past decade. So, where did all the heat that humans are supposedly producing go?

The trend has now reversed in a big way and the deep ocean is warming. [Source: Rutgers University]
