The Disappearing Science of Global Warming

An excellent article by Peter Ferrera of the American Spectator with an overview of Global Warming Science at the moment from a skeptical viewpoint.
Establishment figures intone about the substantial "body of science" supporting the notion of man-caused global warming. But based on recent events, they need to check the body's pulse. The body is dead, and rapidly wasting away before our very eyes.

Peter says that because of  UHI and data corruption the only reliable temperature record now is the one produced by U.S. weather satellites measuring global atmospheric temperatures. Such satellites have only been in operation since 1979, but show no increase in global temperature trends until the unrelated El Nino spike of 1998, with temperatures declining back down since then.
He is critical of the US media who unlike their UK counterparts have largely ignored negative stories on global warming . American media outlets like Time and Newsweek are still disgracefully reporting the arrant nonsense from global warming fabulists that the record snowfalls pummeling America this winter are actually due to global warming. In America, we can no longer even get the news from the political activists posing as journalists at our major media outlets, which can no longer be distinguished from the Democrat National Committee.
Well worth a read.

  1. In the mean time, since they cannot convince adults, NASA turns its attention from the moon to launch a new propaganda campaign for kids:

    Air: Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas. Too much carbon dioxide in the air makes Earth get warmer and warmer.



    TEMPERATURE: Even a small rise in Earth's global temperature means melting ice at the North and South Poles. It means rising seas. It means flooding in some places and drought in others. It means that some plants and animals thrive while others die.



    SEA ICE: What is happening to the ice?

    SEA LEVEL: What if it keeps rising this fast?

    If the ice keeps melting, global sea level could rise more than 20 feet. That would put a lot of coastlines under water. Whole islands could disappear!

    BIG QUESTIONS
    What does global climate change mean?

    -Earth has been getting warmer fast, causing lots of serious problems

    -Humans are causing this warming



    What is the big deal with carbon?

    Throughout Earth's history, whenever the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has gone up, the temperature of Earth has also gone up.



    What is the greenhouse effect?

    The point is, if the greenhouse effect is too strong, Earth gets warmer and warmer. This is what is happening now. Too much carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the air are making the greenhouse effect stronger.



    How do we know the climate is changing?

    Well, after observing and making lots of measurements, using lots of satellites and special instruments, scientists see some alarming changes. These changes are happening fast--much faster than these kinds of changes have happened in Earth's long past.



    Scientists have learned that, throughout Earth's history, temperature and CO2 levels in the air are closely tied.

    You can see how CO2 levels change with temperature. Look at what it is doing now.



    Yipes!



    The map above of the southeastern U.S. shows in red the area that would be under water if sea level were to rise by 20 feet (6 meters).

    Our new climate kids’ site off with a bang! January 28, 2010

    posted by Dr. Amber Jenkins



    Climate change can be a daunting topic for most adults to grasp, let alone kids. That’s why we’ve just launched the kids’ version of our website, called “Climate Kids”, to help.



    Copenhagen



    At Oceans Day in Copenhagen we heard about the acidification of the world’s oceans as they absorb carbon dioxide [CO2],…

    Concerns were expressed about the expected date for the final disappearance of summer (permanent, all-year-round) sea ice in the Arctic, as a result of warming in the region, and the potential for that becoming a climate change ‘tipping point’.

    …along with sea level rise due to melting ice sheets.
