    Less heat is escaping
    out to space
    Satellites measure infrared radiation as it escapes
    out to space, clearly observing the greenhouse
    effect. A comparison between satellite data from
    1970 to 1996 found that even less energy is
    escaping to space at the wavelengths that
    greenhouse gases absorb energy. Researchers
    described this result as
    .
    This has since been confirmed by subsequent
    measurements from several different satellites.

    evidence for a significant increase in the Earth’s

    Change in outgoing radiation spectrum from 1970 to 1996 due
    to increasing greenhouse gases. Negative values mean less
    outgoing heat.4

    Due to over 18" of gullible warming:

    And 2010 will still end up as one of the three warmest years on record. You want to argue the science with irrevelant data. Perhaps you should consider what the decrease in outgoing heat at those particular wavelengths means. And the fact that while we are having a cold winter in some areas of this continent, other parts of the globe are much warmer than normal at the same time.

    Venus has a huge green house effect and yes earth does to, but What I'm talking about is the trapping of more heat with less heat going to space.

    So this should prove that global warming is real...You can whine about the temperature data, but this shows it. The question is, is the rate of decrease of heat going to space still doing the same or speed up the last few years.

    Yup...........its called weather s0n..........been happening my whole life.

    And nobody cares about 1/2 a degree in 100 years.............

    And even if you were right..........who cares?? Tell me..........even if you were right, what does it matter at this stage of the game?

    My friend, The difference between today and the base of the little ice age is less then 2c. The bottom of the last major ice age was around 8-9c colder then today globally. .5c change in 100 years is a good amount. :cool:

    There is significant data supporting your opinion.

    Well........thats awesome news. All this talk of the earth entering another ice age is not exactly encouraging. Id say we need a bump of a degree or two more over the next 100 years. December here in New York this year has been ridiculously cold..........we could use a little global warming.

    Anyway.....my point up there is that despite the chest thumping of the global warming crusaders and all their "science", nobody takes it seriously. If they did, we'd be marching towards carbon credits and destruction of the coal industry and mega-increases in electric rates. Were not........its on nobody's radar and given the recent election results, wont be for a long, long time. The crusaders havent quite figured that out yet..........:D:lmao::funnyface::rofl:


    Members will notice that the global warming crusaders NEVER respond to posts on this reality. NEVER!!!
