CTDL 217: Ocean Temps again

Quick follow up on CTDL 208 with a bit less information, from the BBC of course.

Global temperatures did not dip sharply in the 1940s as the conventional graph shows, scientists believe.
They say an abrupt dip of 0.3C in 1945 actually reflects a change in how temperatures were measured at sea.
Until 1945, most readings were taken by US ships; but after the war, UK vessels resumed measurements, and they took the sea’s temperature differently.
