Marian Locksley's insight:

24.11.13 ~  http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/deep_oceans_may_be_storing_heat_20131124

If this finding – so far limited to the depths where the Pacific and Indian Oceans wash into each other – is true for the blue planet as a whole, then the questions of climate change take on a new urgency.
