Home again, 8/13/15

I thought my error had something to do with the energy per pound of water, but that one is okay as far as I know.  I double checked the weight of the oceans and it checked out.  The amount of energy striking the surface of the Earth looks right.  The rest should be okay, then.

This got me to thinking about the Gulf Stream.  How does so much water get so warm and stay so warm for so long?  This one is a bit strange, I must admit.  There must be an explanation for it, but it is hard to believe that it has anything to do with solar heating.

Of course, there's something I could still be wrong about, but the weight and the energy numbers should check out.
