New Discovery: NASA Study Proves Carbon Dioxide Cools Atmosphere

New Discovery: NASA Study Proves Carbon Dioxide Cools Atmosphere

Written by H. Schreuder & J. O'Sullivan

A recent NASA report throws the space agency into conflict with its climatologists after new NASA measurements prove that carbon dioxide acts as a coolant in Earth's atmosphere.

NASA's Langley Research Center has collated data proving that “greenhouse gases” actually block up to 95 percent of harmful solar rays from reaching our planet, thus reducing the heating impact of the sun. The data was collected by Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry, (or SABER). SABER monitors infrared emissions from Earth’s upper atmosphere, in particular from carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), two substances thought to be playing a key role in the energy balance of air above our planet’s surface.

When do you think NASA will

When do you think NASA will discover CO2 is Plant Food?

Gilligan's picture

rotflol!

Good one, emalvini!

Google is government.

Congress foots the bill, determines correct results.

NIST say building collapsed due to fire.

NASA finds global cooling or heating as needed.

Free includes debt-free!

Oh Sh!7 time to ban soft drinks for all their CO2

Yeaaa for Blomberg the soft-drink tyrant. He's saving us from global weir-ding.

I don't think it was ever debated - just basic science.

The debate in AGW is whether or not human industry produces enough extra CO2 to create a devastating imbalance.

This hubristic attitude was easy enough to sell to the self-important American public but it is really a ridiculous notion.

9-11 was a panda job.

I don't know why you would

I don't know why you would say that because atmospheric CO2 is a greenhouse gas which was believed to have a net heating effect with increase in concentration.

Beyond that what you say is correct of course in that the degree of effect it has must be determined before even thinking of taking action.

This is definitely new science.

A recent example is that of the climate deniers who said that reduced could cover was responsible for heating but they did not follow through to check that reduced cloud cover also allowed more heat to ESCAPE, thus rendering the heating effect insignificant.

quite right. Since carbon dioxide was discovered by Joseph

Priestley it was since then known that the physical properties, not the chemical ones, of co2 would have them, along with sulfur dioxides and other molecules with 3 or more atoms composing, will trap heat through physical processes.

The question remains: could man in his madness, ever hope to produce such a suffocating cloud, through all his might?

9-11 was a panda job.

Hardly madness man, we're

Hardly madness man, we're just trying to grow our economies right? It would be madness to do otherwise.

That is one thing on which I part ways with the 'green' folk. They seem to think that it is somehow because of his hubris that man has brought it upon himself when the desire to progress and develop is one of the most noble characteristics of mankind.
