And in our current "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" to AlGore and the Warmenists,

A new study out of the United Kingdom predicts the Earth is about to go through a major climatic shift that could mean decades of cooler temperatures and fewer hurricanes hitting the United States.

Scientists at the University of Southampton predict that a cooling of the Atlantic Ocean could cool global temperatures a half a degree Celsius and may offer a “brief respite from the persistent rise of global temperatures,” according to their study.
Note that they can't turn loose of that nonexistent 'rise of global temperatures'.  Also, I have a question on this:
Researchers argue that a negative AMO will bring “drier summers in Britain and Ireland, accelerated sea-level rise along the northeast coast of the United States, and drought in the developing countries of the Sahel region,” according to the study’s press release. Interestingly enough, the study also predicts fewer hurricanes hitting the U.S.– a result of a cooler Atlantic.
Not being a genius, I do not get how the hell a cooler Atlantic will 'accelerate sea-level rise', especially in one freakin' region.

There is discussion of solar cycles affecting the climate(surprise!), and the piece ends with this:
McCarthy and his colleagues, however, argue there could be a reprieve from warming based on natural ocean cycles– not solar activity. The British scientists argue that weaker ocean currents are carrying less heat northward from the tropics.
Really?  Why, have the currents changed?

Ah well.  Expect loud screaming and denunciations from the usual suspects.

OK, I am just a mechanic...but as far as I know all liquids seek a level. Someone please explain to me how in the hell sea level can rise*here* but not *there*. I know there are tidal differences and all that, but generally sea level is sea level. How stupid do they think we are?

J Bogan, Uhm, I'm just a truck driver(so no genius here, either), but I think that they think we are really, really, really.....REALLY stupid. I think.

J Bogan if you had a truly flat surface then yes liquids will seek there natural level however you exist on an oblate spheroidal planet which has differential gravity on it's surface and is spinning, not mention tidal effects of the sun and moon. This means sea level is higher at the equator than at the poles.

Think of it as counting cards. Even though it's a 3 of spades in one's hand they are reluctant to relinquish it because they're fairly sure it will come in handy. Hope against hope that they can last more than one more deal. In this current instance, look for increasing attempts to correlate salinity and Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) with everybody's darling, aka, carbon emissions. Of course it's smoke and mirrors but their are $Billions (OPM) at stake. If one hopes enough, that 3 of spades is worth 2 aces. I suggest psy ops non stop playing Kenny Rogers' famous song.

Yes, they really, really do hope you are that stupid.
