NASA: No Warming Over the Past Decade

Stop_Global_WarmingNo warming.

That is what can be deduced from data compiled by NASA as it relates to temperature over the past decade.

The average temperature in 2003 was 14.61 degrees Celsius. And the average temperature in 2013 was 14.61 degrees Celsius, at a growth rate of 0 percent.

Yet, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increased by more than 5.5 percent, from 375.77 parts per million (ppm) to 396.48 ppm, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).


In fact, since 1959 — as far back as NOAA’s dataset goes for carbon dioxide levels — carbon dioxide has increased a whopping 25.48 percent, from 315.97 ppm to today’s level of 396.48 ppm.

Yet, temperatures are up a mere 4.2 percent, from 14.02 degrees Celsius to its current level of 14.61 degrees.

Casting doubt on the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s man-made global warming hypothesis, carbon emissions have been accelerating, too. For example in the 1960s, they grew at an average rate of 0.27 percent a year, 0.39 percent in the 1970s, 0.45 percent in the 1980s, 0.42 percent in 1990s, and 0.54 percent in the 2000s.

Shouldn’t temperatures be accelerating, too?

They only grew at an average rate of 0.18 percent in the 2000s. That compares with 0.01 percent average annual increase in the 1990s, 0.12 percent in the 1980s, and 0.14 percent in the 1970s. In the 1960s, temperatures actually dropped an average annual 0.39 percent, even as emissions increased.

Does this suggest that the more carbon increases, the less impact it has on temperature?

A better question might be if there is any correlation — at all — between the rate of increase in carbon emissions versus temperatures?

In the meantime, policy makers at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) say we have to take their word for it and attempt to curb carbon emissions here in the U.S. — if that’s even possible — while those emissions promise to continue growing unabated overseas at an ever-faster pace.

According to BP, carbon emissions will increase by 29 percent by 2035 based on continued growth in emerging markets.

That implies carbon dioxide will be at a whopping 114.98 ppm above today’s levels, or an average annual increase of 1.3 percent. That is faster than carbon dioxide has ever grown.

And so, if carbon emissions will be accelerating over the next couple of decades, then temperatures should, too. Right?

That is, if the man-made global warming hypothesis is correct.

The good news is we’ll find out very soon if the rapidly increasing carbon emissions result in rapidly increasing temperatures. So far, they have not, calling into question why the EPA is issuing any carbon emission restrictions at all. This isn’t settled at all.

    Curious, indeed! Seems that those who are determined to ram “climate change” down our throats would have seen these statistics and thought them curious, as well. Though they are insistent that those of us who don’t believe in the “global warming” hoax are swayed by misinformation, you’ve gotta’ wonder that they don’t put any stock into NASA’s findings. Curious, indeed!

      To liberals, science is only valid and worthy of our attention when it can be twisted to support the Leftist agenda.
