NASA designs new weapon for ICE Agents in Mexico

 

The latest technolgy from NASA?

 

Even after two unarmed ICE Agents in Mexico were murdered because they are left defenseless by government edict, Obama and Big Sis (Janet Napolitano) still do not want them to be armed. This is what I call a big fail!

This morning we had another failed satellite launch by NASA, that no doubt cost hundreds of millions of tax-payer dollars, another bug fail!

I do not know who came up with this as I found it on Craigslist Rant & Raves, but it seems to me that based on the aforementioned, this just could be the latest in weaponry for ICE Agents in Mexico.  It seems logical to assume NASA may have invented this and it also seems logical to assume that Big Sis and Obama heartily approve of it.

Personally, regardless of what you think about Homeland Security or ICE, there are brave men and women going to Mexico unarmed. I find this rather appalling to say the least and I sincerely hope that the people in charge see the light and either start arming these agents or quit sending them to Mexico until the Mexican government relents. We’re sending these people to help them, not to start a revolution, or to usurp their authority. These people should be allowed be armed for self-protection – period.

Now, this is all just an educated guess, but if you connect the dots it makes sense to me anyway. More CO2 Insanity, minus the CO2.

As another NASA Climate Satellite Explodes – Conspiracy or Incompetence?

 

NASA Glory Satellite end up crashing in glory

 

 

By: John O’Sullivan

Cynics suggest foul play as NASA rocket explodes and yet another crucial space mission to measure global warming ends in disaster.

Reports are that a catastrophic system failure of the second NASA’s ‘Glory’ Satellite is believed to have caused the craft to crash into the ocean somewhere near Antarctica. The onboard Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) was a satellite system designed to measure how tiny airborne particles in the atmosphere affect the earth’s climate.

Satellitegate conspiracy talk reared its ugly head again as soon as the rocket exploded shortly after take off from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.The satellite was, in fact, a replacement for the first OCO that also exploded in 2009 in similarly strange circumstances. Again, cynics are suggesting foul play.

The OCO system was designed to be instrumental in finally settling the global warming debate.The observatory would have been able to show scientists precisely how much energy is falling from the Sun onto Earth.

Thus researchers could have precisely calculated how much, if at all, human emissions of carbon dioxide were altering the climate; perhaps even proving that the scare over man-made global warming has been a hoax all along.

Lightning Strikes Twice’ to Thwart Climate Researchers

According to experts it appears the same problem that doomed the 2009 OCO launch has led to a second explosive failure causing further embarrassment to the faltering trillion-dollar US space agency. The back-to-back ‘Taurus XL’ failures have resulted in losses totaling nearly $700 million.

Despite NASA’s “ thorough investigation” and assurances that a problem with a detachable heat shield on the nose of the satellite had been fixed ‘lightning struck twice.’

“Exact same rocket, exact same failure” said BBC’s Science Correspondence Jonathan Amos who told BBC News viewers (March 4, 2011) that the “clam shell” nose cone covering that protected the rocket failed to detach properly five minutes into the launch.

The BBC speculated that the rocket might have been either too heavy or too slow precipitating the failure of the nose cone to detach; thereby the rocket’s trajectory fatally altered causing the craft to explode mid-flight.

More Proof to Deepen the SatelliteGate Scandal?

With yet another $250 million investment now laying on the bottom of the ocean floor the world is again left without reliable measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

As this author first exclusively reported in 2010, there are grave and persistent problems not only with both the OCO rockets but other satellites designed to measure climate change as shown herehereherehereherehere and here.

The OCO was “the only satellite in the world that will do the kind of global collection we need,” said James Lewis, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and one of the authors of a 2010 report on satellite monitoring of climate change. “And we haven’t thought about how to replace it.”

So will this turn out to be yet another ugly chapter in the Satellitegate scandal? A news conference is scheduled for later today to discuss this failure and how NASA will proceed. For updates check the NASA website here.

Is NASA going to hire Kim il-Jong?

Send me 100 of those babies and I'll cure global warming and compensate for my small dick all in one fell swoop!

Well, I thought the so-called science of global warming couldn’t possibly get any nuttier. Well, that’s what I get for thinking because those crazy computer models at NASA are now telling them that we can solve global warming with a nuclear war. Yes you heard right they claim they can cool off the planet’s temperature with a nuclear war! Per NASA Scientist Luke Olman at Goddard Space Flight Center we get the looniest f’in solution I’ve ever seen.

“I’m drawn to extreme scenarios,” said Luke Oman, a climate scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Perhaps the most extreme scenario in his portfolio is nuclear conflict. Using a NASA computer simulation, Oman and colleagues model the climate’s response to the smoke from fires brought about by regional nuclear war. His work, performed with colleagues at Rutgers University prior to joining NASA, is part of a larger panel discussing the issue on Feb. 18 at the meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Washington.

Well all we  seem to need is about 100 of what’s in the below photo going off and global warming is solved. So easy a caveman could do it!

Well hot damn! Let’s call Kim il-Jong and get him to fire those nuclear warheads up and solve global warming in one fell swoop! If this is what NASA scientists get paid to do all day then perhaps there’s some more places that Congress can do some budget cutting! Taxpayers everywhere should be going nuclear over this one.

Others are finally starting to get Satellitegate

NASA's Carbon Observatory Crashed and Burned (NASA)

Finally it appears that others are awakening to the fact that there are problems with those satellites that we reported about months ago, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. From the Washington Post we get this article titled “Aging and failed satellites jeopardize efforts to collect data on climate change.”

Shortly after it lifted off in February 2009, NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory crashed into the Pacific Ocean near Antarctica. With that, a $250 million investment became scrap metal on the ocean floor and an effort to begin using satellites to measure atmospheric carbon dioxide and trace emission-reduction actions was dealt a huge setback.

The OCO was “the only satellite in the world that will do the kind of global collection we need,” said James Lewis, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and one of the authors of a 2010 report on satellite monitoring of climate change. “And we haven’t thought about how to replace it.”

There are other problems in the works……

2005 report by the National Research Council sounded the alarm about the climate satellite system, declaring it was “at risk of collapse,” largely because of weakening of U.S. financial support for such programs. The 2010 report by Lewis and others asserted that half of all climate satellites will have outlived their design life within the next eight years.

The bottom line is the computer models suck (garbage in and garbage out) and they are desperate for good satellite data to really get a handle on what or what isn’t going on with the Earth’s climate. While I believe anthropogenic global warming is a sham I would be happy if they actually got some good data on things to give us a better idea of what is really going on. The way things are now they might as well toss the dice.

You can read their article about all the other failures and problems at the source below. Just don’t say we didn’t tell you about it. More CO2 Insanity.

Vast Solar Eruption Shocks NASA and Raises Doubts on Sun

Vast Solar Eruption Shocks NASA and Raises Doubts on Sun Theory

By: John O’Sullivan

NASA reports an entire hemisphere of the sun has erupted. The U.S. space agency now admits the cataclysm puts existing solar theories in doubt.

We are forever being told that the sun is a vast gas ball of hydrogen and helium at the center of our solar system. But new evidence may help prove this isn’t the case after all, according to solar experts who say the sun has an iron core.

A stunned NASA admits, “Astronomers knew they had witnessed something big. It was so big, it may have shattered old ideas about solar activity.”

The vast global solar eruption covers ~10^9 km of the solar photosphere. The US space agency reports, “The whole solar hemisphere erupted simultaneously in an avalanche effect that had been triggered in the tiny solar core and propagated outwards” (NASA: Dec 13, 2010).

Scientist have confirmed that the explosion that occurred on August 1, 2010 is unprecedented in recorded history and caused filaments of magnetism to snap and explode creating enormous shock waves that raced across the stellar surface. This caused billion-ton clouds of hot gas to billow out into space.

This unprecedented event is claimed to give support to an alternative theory long held by Professor Oliver K. Manuel, a Postdoctoral Fellow of the University of California, Berkeley.

Event believed to be a Self Organized Criticality

In a never seen before occurrence, an entire hemisphere of the sun erupted simultaneously in an avalanche effect triggered from inside the compact solar core and propagated outwards; scientists are describing the astonishing happening as like the sand pile effect in Self Organised Criticality.

Self Organized Criticality (SOC) occurs in physics when a critical point is reached in a dynamic system in flux whereby the system radically alters its behavior or structure, for example, from being a solid to acting like a liquid.

SOC is one of a number of important discoveries made in statistical physics and related fields over the latter half of the 20th century, discoveries which relate particularly to the study of complexity in nature. Such new evidence, say Manuel, must now force solar scientists to think again.

Cliff Saunders, working for the Neutron-Repulsion Group, describes how our sun may now, in fact, be more like an atom rather than a huge gas ball. He explains, “In the atom, electrons occupy 99% of the volume and have less than 1% of the mass. In the Sun, the atmosphere and planets occupy 99% of the volume and may also have less than 1% of the mass.”

Is NASA Bonkers?

Is NASA or someone at NASA bonkers? I was just going over my news stuff on Yahoo and from the NASA Earth Observatory box  I saw an item titled “Arctic Sea Ice Melting and Moving” that was noted as put up 7 hours ago (it’s 6:03PM in New York right now). I found the premise interesting, especially since it’s getting to be winter in the Arctic and the sea ice is building again.

Clicking upon the link I went directly to this page at NASA Earth Observatory. (I took a screen shot for posterity in case it “inconveniently” disappears at a later date – if so, put a comment up and I’ll put the screenshot up.

Nice pictures eh? The same ones are at the top of my post. Their post is dated today (November 10, 2010), so it’s not an old article. If you look underneath each photo there are dates. Note the year on those photos. RADARSAT mosaic April 2008, April 30, 2008 and November 30, 2008.

Now, I don’t know about you but I have to question why NASA would publish what I consider to be an alarmist article about the melting sea ice in the Arctic that’s based upon data from 2008? Is it funding time? Are they worried about what’s going to happen with the Republicans taking over the House of Representatives and feel the need to (pardon the pun) turn the heat up?

Or, is it merely that someone at NASA is trying to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes? As you can see from the below chart the sea ice really is building already, it’s not melting. Moreover, it’s slightly above 2009 and also above 2007 which is a good sign it could be building back up from the 2007 low. Perhaps a mistake?

Well, at least they didn’t include a touchy-feely photo of mama polar bear and her cubs supposedly stranded on a small iceberg. Seems like more CO2 insanity to me.

What warming goes up must come down

Well, my latest fun comes courtesy of NASA. Not due to anything that they have done wrong (they do good things, too!). Please take a look at their latest satellite image below of the Pacific Ocean that show’s the effect of the La Niña we’re now having.

Go ahead, take a look and note all the blue and white and also note there is very little brown. Remember we’ve been hearing a nearly constant global warming alarmist din about how hot the oceans are, how the coral is bleaching and how we have rising sea-levels and hell, we’re going to all drown and burn to up like crispy critters because of all that nasty old anthropogenic CO2 that causes about anything you care to name, good, bad, or indifferent.

So, look at the above map again and the key at the bottom.  The white is neutral (zero), neither higher or lower. The maximum low is -220 millimeters and the max high is +220 millimeters. If you’re in the USA where we’re more scared of the metric system than global warming, that is the equivalent of + or – 8.66141732 inches in each direction, or a maximum combined spread of 17.32283464 inches. Compared to the 15-20 feet some morons claim we will soon get, that’s a mere drop in the Pacific Ocean bucket.

To put it plain and simple look at how much white and blue there is and how little brown there is. It seems to me that Newton’s Law must apply to hot oceans and their heat-driven sea-level. If you remember Newton, he’s the dude who myth says got hit in the head by an apple and discovered gravity and his theory that what goes up, must come down. Not quite what happened but that’s the favored story.

I’d bet he would find that Newton’s Law is a very appropriate theory to apply to global warming. What temperatures the warmers scream about going up come back down, and what sea-level raise the warmers scream about goes back down, too. I’d term it climate yin and yang.

So remember whether it’s temperature, sea-level or gravity, what goes up must come down. At least Newton didn’t have CO2 Insanity.
