Damned Elusive Heat: Is it in Heaven Or is it in Hell?

"They seek him here,
they seek him there,
those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven or is he in hell?
That damned elusive Pimpernel."

The Scarlet Pimpernel

Some 3,000 scientific robots that are plying the ocean have sent home a puzzling message. These diving instruments suggest that the oceans have not warmed up at all over the past four or five years _ NPR

Fifty per cent of "global warming" heat has gone phantom -- missing, and nowhere to be found. That damned elusive heat: where could it be? We know it is here somewhere, because our models tell us it must be.

Of course, the smarter climate scientists have been telling us all along what was going on. Unfortunately, all the fame, political power, and grant money tied up in the global warming catastrophe debate has corrupted most scientists with the closest connections to governments, intergovernmental agencies, the news media, and the most influential activist lobbies and NGOs.
The heat is gone, oh where, oh where?
Maybe in the oceans?
Maybe in the air?
It’s just not there.
They could not find it any-where. _AnthonyWatts
Keven Trenberth at NCAR is flirting with complete absurdity when he claims that the "missing heat" may be hiding in the deep dark crushing pressure of the cold sea bottoms.

Clearly planet Earth possesses significant mechanisms for dealing with heat that model-bound climatologists such as Trenberth, Jones, Mann, and Hansen know nothing about (or are unwilling to acknowledge). That type of witlessness and / or dishonesty appears to be a de facto requirement for obtaining membership in the top levels of the climate catastrophe club. In ordinary science, the scientific method works like this:
The steps of the scientific method are to:
  1. Ask a Question
  2. Do Background Research
  3. Construct a Hypothesis
  4. Test Your Hypothesis by Doing an Experiment
  5. Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion
  6. Communicate Your Results
It is important for your experiment to be a fair test. A "fair test" occurs when you change only one factor (variable) and keep all other conditions the same.
But in climate science the steps are altered:

  1. Draw a Conclusion
  2. Communicate your Results
  3. Construct a Hypothesis consistent with your Results and supportive of the Conclusion
  4. Build a Model designed to achieve the Results and support the Hypothesis
  5. Analyse Your Data for as long as it takes until your communicated Results are supported
  6. Ignore any Real World data that conflicts with Hypothesis, Results, or Conclusions
  7. Re-Communicate your Results as having been doubly confirmed

No wonder fewer busy people, recently, are giving climate catastrophe the time of day.
