NOAA scientists targeted by House GOP were right: The ocean is warming twice as fast as we thought

A new study confirms that when NOAA scientists recalculated the ocean’s warming — finding that over the past 18 years, ocean temperatures have increased 0.22°F (0.12° C) increase per decade, rather than the previously thought .13°F (0.07° C) per decade — they were right.

The original findings, published in Science in 2015, came under intense scrutiny — not from other scientists, but from politicians. Specifically, the scientists involved in the study were targeted in a House Science, Space, and Technology Committee investigation, headed by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX).

As written about here many times the House Science & Technology Committee is a joke.  It is filled with men who fill their pockets with fossil fuel dollars.  They shame us all. And let’s not forget their witch hunt continues and is likely to increase with the new oil rich, climate denying Trump team.

Thanks!
