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 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 longwave radiation (and thus, heat) escaped into space between 1985 and 1999 than alarmist computer models had  predicted. Together, the NASA ERBS and Terra satellite data show that for 25  years and counting, carbon dioxide emissions have directly and indirectly trapped far less heat than alarmist computer models have predicted.


In short, the central premise of  alarmist global warming theory is that carbon dioxide emissions should be directly and indirectly trapping a certain amount of heat in the earth’s  atmosphere and preventing it from escaping into space. Real-world measurements,  however, show far less heat is being trapped in the earth’s atmosphere than the alarmist computer models predict, and far more heat is escaping into space than  the alarmist computer models predict.
