|Al Gore Study: Global Warming Causes Global Cooling|

Former Vice President Al Gore has hired a team of climate change scientists to uncover why global temperatures have been dropping in recent years. They claim that global cooling is caused by global warming, because allegedly warmer oceans boost more frigid air temperatures.
According to Xinhua News, "Researchers from the United States and China on Thursday explained why the rapid global warming in the late 20th century has been slowing down over the last 15 years."
Prof. Ka Kit-tung of Applied Matematics at the University of Washington is reported as saying that, "Many of the earlier papers had necessarily focused on symptoms at the surface of the Earth, where we see many different and related phenomena. We looked at observations in the ocean to try to find the underlying cause."
As reported by Xinhua News, "The researchers reported in the U.S. journal Science that the so-called global warming hiatus may be mainly due to a massive movement of heat from shallow surface waters to deep regions of the Atlantic and Southern Oceans."
The Al Gore Climate Change scientist team contend that more global warming gets trapped into oceans to lower air temperatures.

"why global temperatures have been dropping in recent years"
They haven't. From NOAA's Global Analysis - Annual 2013:
"The year 2013 ties with 2003 as the fourth warmest year globally since records began in 1880. The annual global combined land and ocean surface temperature was 0.62°C (1.12°F) above the 20th century average of 13.9°C (57.0°F). This marks the 37th consecutive year (since 1976) that the yearly global temperature was above average. Currently, the warmest year on record is 2010, which was 0.66°C (1.19°F) above average. Including 2013, 9 of the 10 warmest years in the 134-year period of record have occurred in the 21st century. Only one year during the 20th century—1998—was warmer than 2013."
