It’s amazing what you find from the 1990 IPCC Report when you look. These were the days, of course, before the IPCC became fully politicised.
In their section on sea temperatures, they discuss the big cooling of the Atlantic in the 1960’s and 70’s.
What they are talking about is the immense heat storing capacity of the oceans, and how changes in circulation patterns can have a significant effect on climate, maybe decades or even centuries later.
The ability of CO2 to affect ocean temperatures is tiny in comparison.
Unfortunately, many scientists today find it easier, and more profitable, to blame all changes on CO2 and ignore all of the natural processes taking place.
