NASA's Finest Are Climate Skeptics

Unlike the pathetic little weasels at GISS, NASA’s finest are climate skeptics.

To the long list of right-wing, knuckle-dragging know nothings who dare question so-called “global warming,” environmentalists now can add six Apollo astronauts, two rocket men who flew aboard Skylab, and a pair of former directors of the Johnson Space Center (JSC).

'Climate models not only significantly over-predict observed warming in the tropical troposphere, but they represent it in a fundamentally different way than is observed'

New Paper by McKitrick and Vogelsang comparing models and observations in the tropical troposphere

This is a guest post by Ross McKitrick (at Climate Audit). Tim Vogelsang and I have a new paper comparing climate models and observations over a 55-year span (1958-2012) in the tropical troposphere. 946 more words

Modeling

Centinel2012 reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:

Actually this should be no surprise; it results from over estimating CO2 forcing s and underestimating natural processes. By properly modeling the heat/energy transfers from the tropics toward the poles and combining that with a reasonable factor for carbon Dioxide with sensitivity under 1 degree C per doubling a model can be constructed that will generate global temperatures in line with NASA-GISS global temperatures significantly better than any IPCC Climate models.

Something many climate alarmists are ignorant of or deliberately refuse to acknowledge: increased temperatures and higher CO2 are good for plant life, making food production easier. And maybe we can even grow wine grapes in Britain again, as in the Roman Warm Period.
