A new NASA climate paper published in Remote Sensing Journal reveals that from 2000 to 2011the earth`s atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted. The study by Dr Roy Spencer principal research scientist at the University of Alabama Huntsville and US Science Team leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning radiometer flying on the NASA Aqua satellite, and by Dr D Braswell and shows far less future global warming will occur than UN computer models have predicted. The paper supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.. The new NASA Terra satellite data are consistent with long term NOAA and NASA data indicating atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds are not increasing in the manner predicted by alarmist computer models. The Terra satellite data also support data collected by NASA`s ERBS satellite showing far more long wave radiation(and thus heat) escaped into space between 1985 and 1999 than alarmist computer models had predicted. When objective NASA satellite data, reported in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, show a huge discrepancy between alarmist climate models and real world facts, climate scientists, the media and our elected officials would be wise to take notice. Whether or not they do so will tell us a great deal about how honest the purveyors of global warming alarmism truly are.
