July 29, 2011 – New data from NASA satellite contradict previous UN models that showed considerable global warming predictions.
The NASA Terra satellite study observations have been conducted from the years 2000 through 2011 and show that Earth’s atmosphere is releasing far more heat into space than the previous widely supported computer models have been predicting.

The study, which appears in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing, indicates that there will be far less global warming than the United Nations has predicted with their computer models.
These observations support prior studies that were criticized by the UN, which indicated that increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide traps much less heat than UN is claiming.
“The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show,” Dr. Roy Spencer, co-author of the study and 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, “There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans.”

Another finding in the NASA satellite data study is that the atmosphere actually begins shedding heat into space way before the UN’s computer models predicted.
While scientists on both sides of the global warming debate agree on the amount of heat being trapped by human caused carbon dioxide emissions – a small amount, – the bigger issue was the heat trapped indirectly from humidity and cirrus cloud increases due to carbon dioxide increases.

But, the real-world data has also shown that carbon dioxide emissions are not contributing to much atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds as UN’s computer models have suggested.
These new NASA satellite findings are also in agreement with other satellite data collected by NASA, such as the ERBS satellite, as well as NOAA’s long-term data that indicates atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds are not increasing at the accelerating pace the United Nations models showed.

This is an important new finding and will likely contribute to upcoming shifts in the approach to climate change from governmental and environmental institutions in the near future.
