Not taking a depo here, but some things that would be interesting to delve into, given what LC focuses a lot on (deep tropics) -
Starting with the obvious -
•Are the oceans getting warmer? (Yes - but it’s a predicate question)
•Is that a result of solar heat building up over 200 years and being “stored” in 70% of the earth’s surface (cyclical?), or something else?
•Assuming either natural (solar) or other (GW) - what does he see as the release rate of heat from the oceans (steady/accelerating/decreasing???), and over what period of time?
•What does that heat release do to what we would consider to be "normal" climate?
•Until the oceans’ heat is released and water temps are back to “normal” - assuming that happens (and assuming "normal" can be defined) - what’s the impact on summer/'Canes/winters - going forward - starting short term and moving long term?
Or - toss all of these - but he does focus a lot on the Pac tropics ....
