NASA is one of the world's leading scientific agencies, yet they have refused to use their own scientific data to correct their global warming computer models at NASA/GISS. Why?
The latest NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 demonstrates that the Earth's atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than the alarmist computer models have predicted. The results were published in the peer-reviewed Remote Sensing journal. (More details here.)
James Taylor writes is Forbes Magazine: New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming Alarmism.
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.
The real question is does scientific debate really matter? Using those unscientific NASA computer models, aided by a cooperative press, multiple government funded environmental organizations have convinced Californian's that global warming is real, a clear and present danger to their public health. A small minority have impressed their wacko science on the majority. See Rebane's Ruminations for more on the minority tipping point.
The latest Public Policy Institute of California study, Californians & the Environment found that most California's support the states climate change policy.
