NASA: ?Impossible to deny climate change?; Nobody is denying it, we?re just not convinced it?s humans who are to blame

Nobody is denying it, we?re just not convinced it?s humans who are to blame.

It’s impossible to deny climate change following the record breaking temperatures last year, a scientist from the American space agency NASA says.

Compton Tucker told RNZ News there was every reason to believe that 2016 would break last year’s record.

“We’re starting to see the death of climate change denial, that is the evidence accumulated from multiple sources.

“The evidence is overwhelming and there are people who are wilfully ignorant about climate change and they invoke a wide variety of mechanisms which are pretty silly.”

New Zealand climate scientist James Renwick said countries needed to start getting on top of greenhouse gas emissions.

He said the global economy was built on fossil fuels and that couldn’t be changed overnight.

“There are very rapid changed changes in renewable technologies, electric vehicles and so on and that’s great, but to really change the direction of the global economy in terms of how energy’s produced is a big ask and it will take time. The thing is we really need to start.”

Dr Renwick said there had been talk about this problem for 25 years and nothing had happened – but he said wasn’t too late to turn things around.

He said New Zealand’s emissions profile was unusual, with almost half coming from the agricultural sector.

However, the biggest growth areas for emissions came from the transport and energy sectors. ?

“We could make big moves there, if it was possible for the government to incentivise the introduction of electric vehicles, to invest in public transport rather than building roads, just to move the economy, putting a price on carbon that would really help market mechanisms to move things in the right direction.”

Dr Renwick said there were a lot of things that could be done at a government policy level that weren’t happening.

But hang on a second…what about that pause?

A pause you ask? Yes a pause…don’t worry that Climate Scientists have figured that out…the satellites are lying.

The satellites? Yes, the same satellites that NASA, who say it is impossible to deny any longer, built and deployed.

The climate alarmists have come up with a brilliant new excuse to explain why there has been no ?global warming? for nearly 19 years.

Turns out the satellite data is?lying.

And to prove it they?ve come up with a glossy new video starring such entirely trustworthy and not at all biased climate experts as?Michael ?Hockey Stick? Mann?,?Kevin ?Travesty? Trenberth?and Ben Santer. (All of these paragons of scientific rectitude feature heavily in the Climategate emails)

The video is well produced and cleverly constructed ? designed to look measured and reasonable rather than yet another shoddy hit job in the ongoing climate wars.

Sundry ?experts?, adopting a tone of ?more in sorrow than anger? gently express their reservations about the reliability of the satellite data which, right up until the release of this video, has?generally been accepted as the most accurate gauge of global temperatures.

This accuracy?was acknowledged 25 years ago by NASA, which said that ?satellite analysis of the upper atmosphere is more accurate, and should be adopted as the standard way to monitor temperature change.?

More recently, though, climate alarmists have grown increasingly resentful of the satellite temperature record because of its pesky refusal to show the warming trend they?d like it to show. Instead of warming, the RSS and UAH satellite data shows that the earth?s temperatures have remained flat for over 18 years ? the so-called ?Pause.?

Hence the alarmists??preference for the land- and sea-based temperature datasets whichdo show a warming trend ? especially after the raw data has been adjusted in the right direction. Climate realists, however, counter that these records have all the integrity of Enron?s accounting system?or of Hillary?s word on what really happened in Benghazi.

Given the embarrassment the satellite data has been causing?alarmists?in recent years ? most recently at the??Data or Dogma? hearing last December ? it was almost inevitable that sooner or later they would try to discredit it.

In the video, the line taken by the alarmists is that the satellite records too have been subject to dishonest adjustments and that the satellites have given a misleading impression of global temperature because of the way their orbital position changes over time.

If NASA are going to ask us to believe them that climate change is real then they better stop making stuff up about their satellites.

How ironic that it is NASA imploring us to believe, and that the satellites are wrong, when they were party to the greatest data manipulation of all time in ClimateGate.

Not a single climate prediction has materialised and not a single projection met. If we follow the models, which have a large NASA component in them, then the real temperatures should be matching the models. They aren’t and are never likely to.
