NASA DATA SHOW LESS HEAT TRAPPED THAN EXPECTED

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 global warming will occur in the future 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 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 should dramatically alter the global warming debate.

    good to read an unbiased post David

    But if this is true and it can be proven then I am a little relieved but it will not stop me from continuing to use fewer natural resources, to cut back on my consumption of fossil fuels and to promote and support those who protect the planet.

    Guess I just think I don’t own any of it, morally speaking, have any rights over any of it, ethically speaking, and am merely a temporary lodger and custodian for future generations
