Climate Heat Calculations - 50% Error!

They seek it  here 
They seek it there
The scientists seek it everywhere
Is it in heaven
Is it in hell
That damned elusive heat our models tell!

With apologies to the Scarlet Pimpernel we see the unedifying spectacle of "climate scientists" scrabbling to explain why the real world disagrees completely with the fantasy pictures drawn by faulty and incomplete models.
The most obvious explanation that the models are wrong seems to completely escape these one-track grant-getters

Current observational tools cannot account for roughly half of the heat that is believed to have built up on Earth in recent years, according to a "Perspectives" article in this week's issue of Science. Scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) warn in the new study that satellite sensors, ocean floats, and other instruments are inadequate to track this "missing" heat, which may be building up in the deep oceans or elsewhere in the climate system
The Argot float system of ocean heat measurement has been an embarrassment to the Alarmist scientists with data suggesting the ocean has been cooling not warming!
Until 2003, the measured heat increase was consistent with computer model expectations. But a new set of ocean monitors since then has shown a steady decrease in the rate of oceanic heating, even as the satellite-measured imbalance between incoming and outgoing energy continues to grow.
If scientists in medical research found a 50% error but said  we'll give the product to the patient anyway because this is the era of post-normal science jail terms would result .However this type of behavior is the norm for so-called climate scientists with snouts firmly emplanted in the public money trough.
