A strong relationship has been observed in recent years between seismic activity in the oceans and recent global warming (CSARGW, Correlation of Seismic Activity and Recent Global Warming).
In the upside down logic of climate change promoters, the warmer the ocean gets the more likely it is to absorb heat from the surface. They blame the warming pause on heat going into the ocean. This despite thermodynamics dictating it should be the other way round -- more heat should only be absorbed from the surface if the ocean water is cooler.
The oceans are absorbing almost all the heat added to the climate system. This is bad news http://t.co/tJz8eD4wQw pic.twitter.com/smBgSqDuTm— The Economist (@TheEconomist) October 14, 2015
