NASA and many universities are now in the hands of the green/left PC thought police. Anyone who thinks differently is screamed at, silenced, vilified (eg called a denier). It's all about Orwellian control. CAGW is so beloved of the green left because it provides a huge gravy train of government funding and is the ultimate idiological weapon for increasing neo-marxist and loony green policies.

"The truth" hey? That sounds like some religious nut going off😁

CAGW(catastrophic anthropogenic global warming) is a theory. It's only a few decades old so a relatively new field. All the disaster scenarios that "might happen" are based on the theory that the tiny amount of Co2 in the atmosphere (and therefore tiny influence on warming) might somehow trigger runaway heating of the planet. Mostly this has been promoted by green/left zealots who got involved with this field. The main driver is politics (of the green/left variety). They use models (garbage in, in the form of a mere theory, and garbage out, in the form of dozens of failed predictions and pretending they have a crystal ball to feed an eager green/left media with a steady stream of "might happen" sensational crap (which grabs eyeballs and sells advertising... Hence why the media loves this shit).

Meanwhile you have dozens of eminent scientists appointed by the IPCC as lead authors and experts speaking out and stating "hang on this is all absolute crap!" That alone should stop any thinking person in their tracks.
There is more. Lots more.

My mate in Gisborne has been off the national grid since just before I moved from Gisborne to Wairarapa in 1998.

He generates all his own power from a mixture of solar, wind and hydro energy and has been doing so for almost twenty years.

So shove that up your clacker, dark-ages, selfish, polluting, “fuck the next generations” moron.

The green left utopia fantasy is killing jobs, killing the elderly in countries that have extreme cold or hot climates and killing hope of a modern life for the two billion plus people in the world who still live in medieval conditions of sickness and poverty.

Donald Trump and his partners in crime (stupid Republican righties) don't like organisations like NASA who do the scientific research, then publish the results, because it gives the lie to the desperate bullshit spouted by Trump, Republicans & co., so that is why they are planning to pull funding from organisations who carry out scientific research into the TRUTH, because the TRUTH disturbs their greedy, selfish, fucked-up minds.

How NASA tracks carbon emissions from space to better
understand — and deal with — climate change


By AMINA KHAN | 12:40PM PDT - Thursday, October 12, 2017

FIRES, drought and warmer temperatures were to blame for excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere during the 2015-2016 El Niño, scientists with NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 say.

The findings, part of five papers published in the journal Science, shed light on the mechanisms through which Earth “breathes” carbon dioxide, a potent greenhouse gas, and reveal how those mechanisms affect climate change.

Global temperatures have been on the rise, thanks largely to the human-driven increase in greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide. But not all of the carbon dioxide produced each year ends up in the atmosphere. Some of it ends up trapped in the ocean, or locked on land thanks to plants that use the gas during photosynthesis.

“We know how much we're emitting when we burn fossil fuel, and we see that about half of it stays in the atmosphere and the other half appears to go get absorbed into the land and the ocean,” said Jet Propulsion Laboratory atmospheric scientist Annmarie Eldering, the mission's deputy project scientist. “But there are still these questions of which parts of the land are doing that.”

And on top of that, the amount that gets pulled out of the atmosphere shifts dramatically from year to year, from about as little as 20% to as much as 80%.

“Why is it that there's a lot of variability from year to year?” Eldering said. “We didn't understand why that was.”

Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2, or OCO-2, was launched in July 2014 to help discover those mechanisms and solve that mystery. Because the spacecraft was launched prior to the 2015-2016 El Niño season, it allowed the scientists to get a glimpse of the effect that the weather pattern had on the Earth's ability to store carbon.

“You can think of it as like a big natural experiment where you had a lot of heat and a lot of drought,” Eldering said. “So we could start investigating, how do plants respond when these conditions happen?”

OCO-2's near-infrared sensors revealed that normal carbon sinks — forests in tropical South America, tropical Africa and Indonesia — weren't pulling as much carbon down as they had in the past. But they were all doing so for different reasons.

In South America, a long drought was slowing down the growth of trees and other plants, which meant they were taking up carbon dioxide more slowly. In Africa, temperatures were higher, which could mean that dead plant matter was decomposing faster than usual, allowing carbon dioxide to escape. And in Indonesia, a rash of wildfires burned through trees, releasing their stored carbon, while also leaving fewer plants to pull that carbon down.

“Now we can see that the tropical forest and plants didn't absorb as much carbon as they usually do and that's what caused this big increase in that time period,” Eldering said.

Drought and higher temperatures have been linked to the climate change fueled by greenhouse gases. Now, it seems that there could be a vicious cycle at work.

“The projections of climate suggest there will be more heat and there will be more drought in the future,” Eldering said. “This would suggest that with more warmth and more heat, we'll have more carbon left in the atmosphere, so that would even accelerate the growth rate of carbon dioxide.”

The results should help experts develop more effective strategies to deal with climate change in the future, Eldering said.

“If you want to make a good plan, you've got to have some good information,” she said. “This is going to add to that information, and hopefully be reflected in a better plan down the road.”

The findings come a few months after President Trump’s budget plan proposed to cut OCO-3, a follow-up mission that would continue OCO-2's work.

Nah it's the loony left who are giving the poor and developing nations the big fuck you with demented pipe dreams of running current civilisation on piss poor and expensive wind and solar. Some even fully know this will kill millions but feel an imaginary force will be avenging those nasty cockroach humans for their sins against the lefty fantasy of utopia.

While he may be a rightie, at least Rex Tillerson is a responsible ADULT in the room, babysitting the narcissistic, thin-skinned, immature Trump.

And he has help from the other adults in the room, the White House Chief of Staff and the Secretary of Defence.


BTW....did you see the tiny little hands on that Trump Troll Doll? They go perfectly with the tiny little penis....Grin
