Missing Heat

An interesting article from Science Daily:
"Current observational tools cannot account for roughly half of the heat that is believed to have built up on Earth in recent years"
"Either the satellite observations are incorrect, says Trenberth, or, more likely, large amounts of heat are penetrating to regions that are not adequately measured, such as the deepest parts of the oceans. Compounding the problem, Earth's surface temperatures have largely leveled off in recent years."
Wouldn't warming of the deep ocean be good? It is really cold down there...
"any geoengineering plan to artificially alter the world's climate to counter global warming could have inadvertent consequences, which may be difficult to analyze unless scientists can track heat around the globe."
