Missing Heat and Oceans

Looks like climate science still has not worked out where the missing heat is. According to Katsman and Oldenborgh, “the upper ocean has not gained any heat, despite the general expectation that the ocean will absorb most of the Earth’s current radiative imbalance”.

Radiative imbalance? Apparently more radiative energy is coming into the earth-system than leaving it, resulting in an imbalance, and theoretically the upper ocean layer should have increased in overall temperature. The problem is that this has not happened and climate science is now, desperately, searching for the missing heat.

The solution is rather simple and requires and understanding of specific heat and the unusual values for solid water, liquid water and gaseous water.

The specific heat capacity of a substance is a measure of how much heat is required to raise the temperature of one gram of that substance by one Kelvin, and for the three water phases, solid, liquid and gas the values are, approximately, 2,4 and 2. Liquid water has double the specific heat capacity of both ice and water vapour, and thus requires double the heat to raise its temperature than either ice or vapour. This is a well known property of water except for those involved in climate science.

Think about it – half the heat is involved in raising the temperature of liquid water, as it does with both ice and vapour, so what has happened to the other half of the incoming heat? Why is it missing? All that heat cannot be converted into brownian motion, and hence temperature, of liquid water because if it did, it would be released when water cools, and hence would not be missing. Climate science assumes that all of the incoming radiation impinging on water is converted into increased atomic motion and hence temperature, when a simple inspection of the specific heat capacities of the various phases of water would suggest otherwise.

It’s missing because, as Gerald Pollack has shown, it has been converted to electrical charge separation and molecular order of bulk water to produce EZ water, or liquid crystal water. And this heat, because it remains missing, otherwise climate science would not be so concerned over it, does not return back to the environment as heat. Which is why it’s missing. It’s been turned into electricity, not temperature.

So simple yet so difficult.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.

    It is interesting that often scientists’ huts fire in Antarctic (the last one destroyed completely the Brazilian Navy basis some years ago). It is claimed to be due to the very dry air. But in the poles the proton flux is more dense, so this may contribute to dry also materials by the liquid phase withdraw. Also some big fires in the past could be due to the same effect done by solar flares: Chicago, Tunguska, etc.
