It's Worse Than We Thought, Update

I've warned that global warming is worse than they say.  Evidence for this has been found, and reported on here and here.
A major new study finds that “scientists may have hugely underestimated the extent of global warming because temperature readings from southern hemisphere seas were inaccurate.” In short, as New Scientist puts it, “it’s worse than we thought.”
global warming's effect on upper ocean temperatures between 1970 and 2004 has been underestimated by 24 to 58 percent
Most of the focus on global warming has been on atmospheric temperatures but the oceans are heating as well.  And now we find that the warming of the oceans has been underestimated.

It is worse then we thought, and even less is being done about it.
