The equivalent of 5 billion Hiroshimas have been added to the ocean since the signing of the test ban treaty? We need a mechanism for defusing the 5 billion Hiroshima bomb equivalents worth of heat we have added to the ocean over course of the last six decades.

Global-warming Placebo versus the Remedy It is established science that 93 percent of the heat of global warming is going into the ocean. Less well understood is the fact that this heat will eventually come back to bite us, if not outright do us in. Even less well understood is the fact that the only way to safely remove heat from the ocean is to convert a portion of it to the work required to sustain 10 billion people who will live on the land by 2050.

The tech-fix that gives mankind from between 3 and 11 thousand years Thermodynamic geoengineering is that techno-fix that can sustain mankind, at at least current population levels, for a least the next three thousand years. Which is a good an answer as any to the question posed by the Jeff Gibbs in the opening frames of Michael Moore's documentary Planet of the Humans, how long do you think humans have?
Energy trifecta, From InText

The energy trifecta; entropy, economy, environment. The energy trifecta is energy too cheap to meter that provides the jobs and social benefits that a carbon tax, fossil fuels or energy privation can't. In short it is the only energy that makes winners of us all.

Energy legitimately too cheap to meter At $2.3 trillion less than and 39 percent more energy than is currently provided by current energy sources, it would be cheaper and less bureaucratic to simply provide energy produced by heat pipe OTEC platforms for a flat fee or even free and make a profit from the associated services, which include reduced surfaced heat loading, sea-level rise, storm surge, atmospheric CO2 and ocean acidification.

Channeling the Inertia of Global Warming The energy paths confronting the next two generations couldn't be starker. A "business as usual" case that assumes 4 degrees of global warming is inevitable. An "off-the-shelf" case that uses existing technologies that will get us to between 3 and 4 degrees. And a case for lowering the ocean's heat load that lowers atmospheric temperatures 1 degree each decade. The choice we should chose seems self-evident.

Science and politics disregard the climate lessons of Nature and mankind is failed as a consequence. Scientists have discovered, measured and explained the slowing of atmospheric warming this century and a decline in sea level rise in 2010. The practical implications of these events however seems to have escaped them; with the result policy makers are deprived of the information that would enable them to address climate change with the least cost and greatest benefit.

The Practical Implication of the Global Warming Hiatus. Global warming is arguably the most compelling problem this and future generations is likely to face. We can calmly and adequately address it by using the climate pause as a learning exercise.
