“Every climate scientist will freely admit that CO2 alone would NEVER have enough warming effect to whip up any concerns AT ALL! The linchpin of Catastrophic Man Made Global Warming hysteria has always been the question of how water vapor responds to the tiny amount of warming caused by CO2. Every IPCC computer model blindly assumes a positive water vapor feedback mechanism which creates catastrophic warming (even though CO2 levels 22 times higher than today failed to create any such ‘tipping point’ of runaway global warming).”That post went on to cite peer reviewed science demonstrating that the alarmist assumptions regarding the holy grail of climate change (the water vapor response) were not merely wrong but entirely upside down.
As expected, the alarmists fought back and attempted to discredit the evidence.
Well, we now have MORE peer-reviewed science which discredits the alarmist attempt to discredit the original science. With this, it is tempting to declare (as others previously have) game, set, match. But, it may be more appropriate to declare this “advantage, skeptics” (BIG TIME). The mythology of this Holy Grail of climate science may not yet have been completely shattered (especially in the eyes of the “true believers”). But, it is teetering badly and very, very close to completely falling in the eyes of all but the very most rabid, corrupt, purely political, money grubbing fanatics.
“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 dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.”
