Those Stubborn Facts: Satellites Confirm NASA's Failed Prediction of Venus-Like Warming of Earth's Atmosphere
The RSS global temperature dataset for end of 2013 has just been released.
These satellite measurements of atmosphere temperatures not only confirm that "runaway" and/or "tipping point" global warming is not happening, they also confirm that the NASA "expert" predictions of Venus-like warming that causes "boiling" oceans was, at best, a wild, lunatic, fringe prediction. In other words, pure climate-porn fantasy without any earthly scientific merit, nor any empirical evidence .
The adjacent chart depicts all monthly satellite measurements prior to the super El Niño of 1997/1998 and those measurements subsequent to that dramatic climate event. In addition, the grey columns represent the estimated CO2 emission tonnage for the respective periods. (click on chart to enlarge)
Despite massive amounts of CO2 emissions since the super El Niño event, the atmospheric temperature change has been a paltry +0.1°C per century trend - essentially, global warming has been non-existent.
In contrast, the period prior the super El Niño was only warming at a barely tepid +0.7°C per century trend. Note that while this warming trend is 7 times greater than that of the post period, human CO2 emission were 40 billion tons less - the fallacy of CO2 being a global temperature thermostat control knob is clearly documented.
The chart's red curves are moving 36-month averages for the two distinct periods leading up to, and subsequent to, the 1997/1998 event. The aqua dashed lines are simple anomaly averages. Obviously, over the last 174 months (14.5 years) the moving average temperature reveals the reality of non-accelerating global warming.
Finally, the December 2013 satellite measurement was only +0.16°C, which is lower than the +0.20°C measurement observed for January 1981. That means, in contrast to all the consensus "expert" predictions, one could surmise that global atmospheric temperatures have not really budged in over 32 years.
Conclusion: Venus-like warming of Earth's atmosphere, due to human CO2 emissions, has not happened and is highly unlikely to happen (unless, of course, there is some type of unique solar/cosmic incident that produces excess warming).
