NASA data blows gaping hole in global warming alarmism July 28, 2011Posted by tantamergo in asshatery, awesomeness, Basics, Dallas Diocese, episcopate, General Catholic, scandals, sickness.
New data analyzed from satellites records of earth temperatures over the past 11 years shows that far more heat is released into space than alarmist climate models predict. In fact, the data shows that global warming as predicted by the UN and other groups supporting a massive socialization of the economy to fight global warming cooling climate change is not occuring:
NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth’s atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.
Study co-author Dr. Roy Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. Science Team Leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASA’s Aqua satellite, reports that real-world data from NASA’s Terra satellite contradict multiple assumptions fed into alarmist computer models.
“The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show,” Spencer said in a July 26 University of Alabama press release. “There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans.”
In addition to finding that far less heat is being trapped than alarmist computer models have predicted, the NASA satellite data show the atmosphere begins shedding heat into space long before United Nations computer models predicted.
The new findings are extremely important and should dramatically alter the global warming debate.
Scientists on all sides of the global warming debate are in general agreement about how much heat is being directly trapped by human emissions of carbon dioxide (the answer is “not much”). However, the single most important issue in the global warming debate is whether carbon dioxide emissions will indirectly trap far more heat by causing large increases in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds. Alarmist computer models assume human carbon dioxide emissions indirectly cause substantial increases in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds (each of which are very effective at trapping heat), but real-world data have long shown that carbon dioxide emissions are not causing as much atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds as the alarmist computer models have predicted.
How much impact will this new data have on groups like the Catholic Climate Covenant? The answer – none! “Data? We don’t need no stiiiiinking data!” It’s an article of faith, a sacred shibolleth, among those of a certain political disposition that GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL!, caused by people, and the only thing we can do about it is to give control of our economy to socialist bureaucrats and go back to an 18th century level of existence. If a few billion people have to die along the way, well…..it’s just a sacrifice Gaia demands.
There was another scientist who had an article out recently, can’t remember where, stating that, in serious scientific communities (that is, not those with a political agenda and growing rich off global warming research grants), global warming as a theory has been disproven for 20 years. But we never hear that in the media, because it does not fit the ‘narrative.’
RELATED: The “scientician” who claimed that polar bears were drowning in their thousands due to melting artic ice caused by GLOBAL WARMING! has been placed on administrative leave for scientific fraud, because his claims have been shown to be completely false. He had no data to support his claims – he just made it up. Like the hockey stick, and ‘hide the decline.’
