We investigate the bulk scaling of the convective heat transport in the Boussinesq equations. An a priori bound on the scaling exponent is obtained without making any assumptions on the turbulent fluctuations. If horizontal gradients of temperature fluctuations are relatively small near the boundary then different scaling regimes are obtained.
