Oops! That Heat DOES radiate into Outer Space!

Well, it seems more computer models need to be flushed down the toilet.  According to this item from Forbes via Yahoo News……..

NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth’s atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxidetrap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.

Study co-author Dr. Roy Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. Science Team Leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASA’s Aqua satellite, reports that real-world data from NASA’s Terra satellite contradict multiple assumptions fed into alarmist computer models.

Gee, I wonder what people like Rajendra Pachauri, James Hansen, et al,  have to say about this? They’ll probably either hide out or come up with newer and better BS to baffle us all with. Contrary to warmer BS those CO2 molecules evidently do not radiate heat back to Earth in some magic focused one-way back to Earth beam.

Back to the thermodynamics law that heat flows to cold. Read the whole article at the source below.

IPCC – Intergovernmental Panel on Crack Cocaine?

Will Earth Henceforth be Known as the Planet with the Reflective Personality?

I thought IPCC stood for Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, but after reading this article I think perhaps it should be changed Intergovernmental Panel on Crack Cocaine. Why say you?

Well, I was taken aback by an article n the Telegraph today titled “IPCC  ‘considering sending mirrors to space to tackle climate change.’ I mean you have to wonder if  they’re all smoking crack? Here’s some snippets from the Telegraph.

Reflective aerosols would be sent into space under a series of radical “geo-engineering” measures being considered by the UN climate science body to tackle climate change, leaked documents disclose.

What are they planning to do send deodorant into outer space? Some aerosol deodorants do use aluminum, which I suppose might reflect all that nasty sunlight. We might even freshen up the planet if we send up a rocket full of the right scent. Imagine not having to buy bathroom spray anymore? I guess this could put Fabreeze out of business, though.

Or, perhaps they could use tiny little mirrors? I mean it really does go hand-in-hand with the crack smoking. They could call it the “smoke and mirrors” solution to climate change, global warming, climate disruption. I think I’ll have to reflect upon this for a while.

The article closes with……..

A spokesman for the IPCC was unavailable for comment.

I wonder what the spoksman was smoking I mean doing?

US Rainwater Radioactive

The monitoring of rain water in some places in the United States is now turning up some radioactivity. Below are some links to various articles about it.

Pocono Record – Uptick seen in iodine sales around Poconos

The Daily Mail – Poison particles from nuke plant found in AT LEAST 12 US States as Japan is put on ‘Maximum’ radiation alert.

The Economic Times – Radiation in US rainwater likely from Japan

MSNBC – Radioactive rainwater recorded eastern US

UC Berkely Air & Water Radiation Monitoring

If you want a good idea of what kind of radiation is blowing into Northern California from the nuclear power plant meltdown in Japan caused by the recent earthquake and tsunami, you can go to the UC Berkeley Department of Nuclear Engineering website for your daily update on what kind of dose you’re getting. They are also monitoring rainwater. Click on the source below and it will take you there.

If you go to their Frequently Asked Questions page there are links to two other monitors and other important information such as the half-life of various isotopes.

Radiation Dose Chart

The Japanese earthquake, tsunami which have been followed by massive problems have much of the world now concerned about radiation doses. Here is a radiation dose chart courtesy of Canada Free Press who deserve a Hat Tip. Click on it to make it larger.
