No news thus far on the ABC about the recent paper by Knox and Douglas in press at the International Journal of Geosciences. The paper titled "Recent energy balance of Earth" finds that estimates of the recent (2003–2008) ocean heat content rates of change (observed from ARGO floats) are preponderantly negative, which does not support the existence of either a large positive radiative imbalance or a “missing energy.” This "missing" energy or warming made famous by Kevin Trenberth in a "climategate" email:
The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't.
If it turns out that the missing heat is not there, then neither is any substantial AGW, you'd think this would be worth reporting on.
Hint to ABC reporters there's an interesting discussion on the paper with comments by Trenberth and paper author Douglas. Available via Roger Pielke Snr's blog under the title: My Comment On Robert S. Knox And David H. Douglass – Kevin Trenberth On The Climate Etc Post On “Missing Heat"
