Subaqueous volcanism: ocean vents and faulty climate models

Interesting post on why climate modelers tend to ignore underwater volcanism: it doesn’t fit with their nice, neat, predictable equations. Yet how useful then are their climate models?

Watts Up With That?

Finally someone addresses the really big elephant in the room: the ocean vents and their role in climate modelling:

I covered this possibility in a previous post:  Do underwater volcanoes have an effect on ENSO? and I have updated that post with this animation showing a heat plume disconnected from the ENSO pattern and Google Earth graphic showing possible subaqueous volcanism sources (you may have to click the top graphic to get it to animate).

This excerpt from an essay published on Quadrant Online by John Reid also explores the question.

It hardly needs to be said that climate modelling is a far-from-settled science, despite what its practitioners would have us believe. Just how flawed becomes even more apparent when you consider that massive heat sources on the ocean floor have been entirely omitted from the warmists’ calculations

THE TOTAL power expended in volcanic heating of the…
