Full story: Newsday

When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

New Discovery: NASA Study Proves Carbon Dioxide Cools 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.
I see. That is why Venus is so cold.....

Who would have thunkit... Anthropogenic Global Warming would look like Christmas?
Over a decade ago, AGW scientists predicted more snow & ice in some regions, due to warming oceans. You know that, since I & other AGW advocates have posted such, many dozens of times. But you, propagandistically, avoid the truth.

Scientific "proof" is when science says comet hits and asteroid hits are inevitable and eventual but climate science has never said a CO2 climate crisis "will" happen only 27 years of "maybe" and "could be" and.......Science gave us pesticides and made environmentalism necessary in the first place.
A climate crisis "IS" a comet hit of an emergency and thus needs certainty not "maybes" in order for the climate change movement to be sustainable but maybe it's too late?
*REAL progressives know that Occupywallstreet does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded carbon trading stock markets ruled by corporations and trustworthy politicians.*

Has it occurred to you that Venus is closer to the sun than the Earth? You think that MIGHT just have something to do with why it is hotter? Why is Neptune so cold? Its atmosphere is 1.5% methane and that is HUGELY more than on Earth. Isn't methane a "greenhouse gas"?

It's not NEARLY close enough to be as hot as it is purely from the Sun's rays. It might average 10-15 degrees or so hotter...human life could exist there, at least in terms of the average temperature.

It's actual surface temperatures are closer to 900 F, so obviously there's something else going on there. What's going on is long-term runaway greenhouse.

The interesting fact about Venus is that its upper atmosphere is so cold. This of course is explained by our understanding (that is, people of science, not ignorant twits like you) of the radiative properties of CO2.

The physics equations that determine the temperature of a planet's surface have been around for 60 years or more, as has the understanding that adding more CO2 will warm our own planet.

There are no credible scientists who dispute this, even those sceptical of the risks of AGW, and it's no surprise to anybody except a bunch of internet cranks and conspiracy theorists who wouldn't understand physics if it bit their behinds that CO2 cools the upper atmosphere.

Everywhere the plume went, the die-off went," Hollander said.
http://www.tampabay.com/news/environment/wate ...
In some areas where the die-off occurred, he said, the tiny creatures came back, but in others the bottom remains bare. Meanwhile, some of the burrowing kind are digging down into the contaminated sediment — and stirring it up all over again.
Tell that to the energy boom towns and Wall Street. Look at the citations, the CO2 emission limits aren't real.

Green energy doesn't work, fossil fuel does. CO2 doesn't cause die off, acid rain does.

Do you have proof that we are the only conscious beings in this universe? Didn't think so. Or have you been tripping around the Universe without telling anyone?

A friend of mine got a PhD in astro physics and obviously is not a retard. When he mentioned the same arguments as you, especially Neptune and methane, one "climatologist" told him there is a difference between the methane on Neptune and the greenhouse gas methane.

Even fundamentals of chemistry remains a "special" thing to these people it appears. I guess the next would be to rearrange the periodic table, maybe switching the space of fluoride with carbon?? For these clowns everything is possible.

But it has so much CO2 in the atmosphere that from your link it should reflect all the heat and turn into a refrigerator.

Why don't you propose that to the NASA experts that published the article? I just report it. I didn't write the paper so don't shoot the messenger.

There was a land bridge allowing people to walk to America, but since the sea level came up 390 feet, it is under water. There were glaciers all the way down into Nebraska. Research has shown that the first Americans caused the "faster than now" rise in sea level by having too many camp fires. It was an easy to prove since the camp fires were all the people had to increase CO2, and nothing else could of caused the sea level rise.

Boy, do I agree with you. The sun determines planet temperatures..... A, B, C. Its that simple. Mercury is hotter than Venus, Venus is hotter than Earth..........

Whoops! The average temperature of Venus is much hotter than the average temperature of Mercury.
