Continuing man-made global warming fraud ignites a mass NASA rebellion. Rebels demand U.S. government pulls plug on the climate catastrophe cult. Dozens of top experts including astronauts and engineers trigger meltdown in American space agency.
The shocking ultimatum was made in a letter (March 28, 2012) signed by 50 NASA experts boasting over one thousand years of combined professional experience addressing their concerns to NASA Administrator, Charles Bolden, Jr.
The letter reveals fury about “unsubstantiated” and “unproven remarks” dressed up by climatologists as “fact.” The protesters claim that constant junk climate science claims are causing enduring “damage to the exemplary reputation of NASA…..even the reputation of science itself…”
Among the dissenters is Dr. Harrison (Jack) Schmitt. Dr. Schmitt famously took part in the Apollo 17 moon mission. The mission’s problems with the Lunar Rover were recently cited as evidence in a high-profile debate between climatologists Roy Spencer, Richard Lindzen and critics of the so-called greenhouse gas effect (GHE).
Smoking the Out Space is “Cold” Fallacy
Spencer and other greenhouse gas effect believers (the cornerstone of climate alarmist science) were humiliated in the email discourse for unscientific claims that outer space is “cold” and Earth’s atmosphere operates like “a blanket” acting to “keep our planet warmer than it would otherwise be.”
However, as Jack Schmitt and other Apollo astronaut moonwalkers demonstrated, the vacuum of outer space is not “cold” but, in fact, has no temperature. Indeed, outer space is Nature’s perfect insulator acting as the true inhibitor of heat loss from our planet (think: Thermos flask). Thus the moon missions demonstrated in the laboratory of outer space that the nonsensical heat trapping “blanket” analogy used by GHE-believing climatologists is pure junk science.
Dr. Schmitt and other space experts want to see an end to such ill-informed musings by climatologists who persist in pontificating and making pronouncements outside their area of expertise. Lindzen, Spencer and their sidekick Lubos Motl were shown the Schmitt evidence and asked: “So do we agree that the vacuum of space inhibits heat energy loss?” Lubos replied, “Not really.” A stunned Spencer and Lindzen made no comment.
A Litany of Hansen “Sciencegates”
Schmitt and his compadres are furious about a long list of apparent data crimes and misdemeanors being committed within the once peerless space agency. The unspoken target of their augur is NASA GISS front man, James Hansen.
Hansen’s junk science operation has featured prominently in several of the “gate” scandals of recent times. Among the controversies Hansen’s hellraising triggered was “Australiagate”. Hansen’s NASA GISS was caught combining GHCN data from urban weather stations to cook up an inexplicable two-degree temperature increase tellingly exposed when independent researchers revealed the shocking disparity between “raw” data and the “cooked” Hansen variety.
Then in June 2010 an anonymous whistleblower inside the U.S. Space Administration gave this author the scoop that NASA was deliberately hiding sunspot data to cover up the deepest solar minimum in centuries. The fall off in the sun’s activity actually suggests an imminent new ice age.
Then two NASA climate satellites carrying the ground-breaking Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) inexplicably exploded soon after take off from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. Fruitless post disaster investigations raised further questions as to whether these unexplained events were conspiracy or incompetence. They then became linked to other catastrophic failures by a slew of satellites designed to measure climate change as shown here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
NASA Hid Climate Truth for Forty Years
But the worst scandal these 50 NASA rebels want addressing is the space agency’s forty-year cover up of proof that the greenhouse gas theory was known to be bogus - before the corrupt era of James Hansen. Hansen and his GISS cronies had concocted a graphic representation of the energy budget of the Earth whereby the space agency conspicuously contradicted itself in its depiction of back-radiation based on its various graphs on Earth’s radiation budget.
In May 24, 2010 hidden NASA documents surfaced proving that the U.S. space agency had successfully devised unique calculations for the Apollo missions that safely put astronauts on the Moon. Those Apollo calculations – proven correct by the real world success of the moon missions – showed that the ‘blackbody’ numbers of the GHE didn’t apply in our three-dimensional universe.
Former NASA man and outspoken greenhouse gas effect (GHE) critic, Dr. Pierre R. Latour was once co-worker of many of the letter’s signatories. As far back as 1997 Dr. Latour, a chemical process system expert, proved the futility of applying a human hand on Earth’s “thermostat” by adjusting fossil fuel combustion – it can never work because the chemical process system atmosphere is not measurable, not observable and not controllable. As such, limiting carbon dioxide emissions cannot control the climate. Period.
Dr. Latour, as a prominent member of Principia Scientific International, is delighted that so many of his former NASA colleagues are standing shoulder to shoulder to squash this enduring myth about the “catastrophic dangers” of this benign trace gas.
It is the compelling Apollo evidence that demonstrates beyond all reasonable doubt that there was no such thing as a greenhouse gas effect and, if there is no GHE then there can be no such thing as catastrophic man-made global warming. But without a climate catastrophe to confront delusional James Hansen’s life work is rendered meaningless but at least $100 billion in taxpayer climate subsidies could be saved. But Hansen and his ilk can’t or won’t see reason - dumb is as dumb does and we can still readily find at least 53 crass authority statements preaching that our atmosphere acts just like the glass in a greenhouse.
But now that NASA is in open rebellion hard-pressed taxpayers are due a reprieve from the world’s worst government-sanctioned science fraud. Perhaps then NASA will finally kick James Hansen out into the long grass.
