Newly identified evidence indicates that the Southern Ocean will likely stop absorbing as much CO₂ as it recently has been doing, with continuing anthropogenic radiative forcing:

Title: "How much longer will Southern Ocean slow climate change?"

http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/news/nation ... te-change/

Extract: "The vast and wild ocean current sucks up more than 40 per cent of the carbon dioxide we produce, acting as a temporary climate-change buffer by slowing down the accumulation of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere.

Yet the same westerly winds that play a critical role in regulating its storing capacity are now threatening its future as a CO2 bank, by bringing deep carbon-rich waters up to the surface.
Many climate models predict that the westerly winds overlying the ocean would get stronger if atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations continued to risk.

A new international study suggests that in the past, strong westerlies have been linked to higher levels of atmospheric CO2 due to their impact on the Southern Ocean carbon balance.

That meant stronger westerlies could actually speed up climate change if mankind continued to emit as much CO2 as it does today.

"Our new records of the Southern Hemisphere westerly winds suggest there have been large changes in wind intensity over the past 12,000 years.

"This is in marked contrast to climate model simulations that predict only relatively small wind speed changes over the same period."

Yet, Mikaloff-Fletcher added, sea surface carbon data suggested that there was a reversal of this trend in the early 2000s, when the Southern Ocean began taking up carbon much more quickly, even though the westerlies didn't slow.

"The mechanisms behind this change still aren't fully explained, which makes it hard to predict whether this is a short-term effect or a long-term one," she said.

"The Macquarie study suggests that the sudden increase in Southern Ocean carbon uptake may not persist on longer timescales.""

wp at asif point out:

Mauna Loa weekly CO2 value came in at 405.69 ppm. Up 2.53 ppm from this week last year. It is also higher than the last 2 weeks so it's possible that we hit our annual minimum.

is the time lag between emissions and the oceans reacting to the extra trapped warmth 15 to 20 years ?

If so what we are currently seeing is possibly more relatable to the emission levels of the late 90's / early 2000's.

T, do you think we've hit the fall low yet?

kiwi, not sure what you mean. Do you mean the atmosphere rather than the ocean. If so, yes, there's a lag. So yes, there's a lot of heat already 'in the pipe line' that will inevitably hit in the next couple decades. Of course we continue to make things even worse by spewing yet more ghgs into the atmosphere.

That's why I find talk of limiting GW to 1.5 or 2 degrees C above pre-industrial levels so absurd. That amount of heat is coming pretty much no matter what, and pretty darn soon.

Massive volcanic eruptions (or some similar, unlikely event) could postpone when we get that warm by a few years.

But only the invention and immediate massive deployment of something that effectively takes tens of billions of tons of CO2 out of the atmosphere...like every month...would provide any hope of avoiding those temps, as far as I can see.

My guesstimate is we are plateauing for the next 2-3 weeks, then we will start the annual climb.

Carl Rasmussen calculates that the de-seasonalised growth rate has now (at the middle of 2018) reached ±2.3 ppm/y. Carl adds: "the rate of growth is itself growing, [it is] the highest growth rate ever seen in modern times. This is not just a 'business as usual' scenario, it is worse than that, we're actually moving backward, becoming more and more unsustainable with every year. This shows unequivocally that the efforts undertaken so-far to limit green house gases such as carbon dioxide are woefully inadequate."

Mean global methane levels were as high as 1.91 ppm on the morning of September 20, 2018, at 293 millibar.

This is a level unprecedented in human history and it far exceeds the WMO-data-based trend (added on the right of above image).

Temperatures look set for a steep rise within years, as we now are fully in the danger zone.
