The 12-month increase is 2.38 × 1022 Joules, the largest jump since 3Q 2006. It works out to 1.48 W/m2 over the Earth's entire surface area.
A better indicator will be, as usual, the 0-2000 m OHC value, compromising the top half of the World Ocean.
Given this, though, it's difficult to understand Judith Curry's recent statement to the Senate EPW Committee that
The stagnation in greenhouse warming observed over the past 15+ years demonstrates that CO2 is not a control knob on climate variability on decadal time scales.Sure, climate models could do a better job of simulating short-term surface temperatures -- though long-term projections are far more important than short-term projections -- but how does this kind of strong and continued ocean warming happen without a forcing??
