Current coverage interrupted: Global climate disaster averted

Here.

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. (Has NASA decided to stop co-operating with the US government because the data cannot fit the “you gotta give up light bulbs,but we don’t” narrative? File to watch.) “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.” So can we get some of those “denialists” out of jail? How about: Real science, that we can obligate the public to fund, is about facts, evidence. Not about theories, scares. Follow UD News at Twitter!

  1. No, no, no! Humans are causing the galactic warming; this must be stopped before Europe melts!

    Preferably by everyone giving me all their money.

  2. … sorry, I meant ‘Europa,’ not ‘Europe’.

  3. You know people who have money? Wowza!

  4. Just about everyone but me, sadly.

    Future global climatological models certainly depend on a good many assumptions. Nor do these stand alone – many assumptions interact in multiple ways with OTHER assumptions, according to processes which much themselves be assumed. And really, this is in the nature of complex models with many independent and interdependent variables.

    If these findings hold up, AND if they make substantial differences in the predictions of current models, I think very few people will be unhappy. I’m probably one of the vast majority – I don’t want to change my lifestyle, so I’m always hoping the most drastic predictions are wrong, and glad to see indications that maybe things aren’t so bad after all.

  6. That would explain:

    Why Hasn’t the Earth Warmed in Nearly 15 Years?

    But it wouldn’t explain:

    There is no statistically significant warming trend since November of 1996 in monthly surface temperature records compiled at the University of East Anglia. Do we now understand why there’s been no change in fourteen and a half years?

    If you read the news stories surrounding a recent paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by Boston University’s Robert Kaufmann and three colleagues, you’d say yes, indeed. It’s China’s fault. By dramatically increasing their combustion of coal, they have increased the concentration of fine particles in the atmosphere called sulphate aerosols, which reflect away solar radiation, countering the warming that should be occurring from increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide.

    I’m not sure I understand the subtext here.

    Isn’t this good news?

  8. It is bad news for the global warming alarmists as it pretty much proves that they are full of it.

    Well, not really, Joseph. As I keep saying, all scientific models are provisional, and any predictive model is highly provisional.

    Your statement implies that the only motivation “global warming alarmists” have is to be right. Nothing could be further from the truth. The reason “global warming alarmists” are alarmed is because they fear they are right.

    As a “global warming alarmist” myself (i.e. someone who is alarmed by signs of global warming) I am very relieved by this news.

    But I do hope that it doesn’t stop people continuing to model climate change, their models now adjusted to take account of these new data, and to present us with the best possible current estimates of what is likely, so that we can be prepared, and of what we might be doing to make it worse, so that we can do less of it.

  10. Elizabeth:

    Your statement implies that the only motivation “global warming alarmists” have is to be right.

    You are confusing what you infer with what I implied.

    But anyway a warm earth is better than a cold earth. And what have we allegedly warmed? Something like 1 degree F in more than 100 years.

    Perhaps the warming is due to all the hot air from the alarmists…

    In what sense is a warm earth better than a cold earth, Joseph? For whom, or what?

  12. A warm earth is better for us as we should be able to grow more crops and raise more food than with a cold earth. Just a look at the ice ages prove that.

  13. Hmmm … didn’t someone assert not too long ago that she doesn’t subscribe to the view, common to those for whom ‘modern evolutionary theory’ is the be-all-and-end-all, that humans are *just* animals, and of no more particular worth than any other animal?

  14. In typical fashion the alarmists are taking shots at Roy Spencer and not caring about the data.

    And for the record- seeing that in the link I am being lied about, as usual- I do not deny the earth is warming. I say it is a good thing and soot, not CO2 is the issue for melting glaciers and ice-packs.

  15. The reason “global warming alarmists” are alarmed is because they fear they are right.

    As a “global warming alarmist” myself (i.e. someone who is alarmed by signs of global warming) I am very relieved by this news.

    You’re relieved to discover your fear were groundless?

    Sounds a bit childish, but ok.

    warm earth is better for us as we should be able to grow more crops and raise more food than with a cold earth. Just a look at the ice ages prove that.

    And what about the Sahara and Central Australia?

    Temperate is good, and if the earth is warming, the temperate regions will move north (for us northern hemispherites). That would be OK if it happens reasonably slowly, and the rest of us have time to migrate up with it (although it’s not much use for the southern hemisphere, except, maybe South America and Tasmania).
