The uncertainty of science: New satellite data covering the period from 2000 to 2011 now shows that the atmosphere traps far less heat than predicted by every global warming climate model.

The models had predicted that the increase in CO2 — which is insufficient on its own to cause a greenhouse effect — would cause feedbacks with water (the atmosphere’s real greenhouse gas) that would increase the amount of atmospheric humidity which would thus trap heat in the atmosphere and raise the global temperature. The new data instead shows the opposite. The atmosphere is not trapping any heat. The greenhouse effect is not occurring as predicted.

    The discouraging aspect is that this article is 2 years old, and was wrong in its prediction that it would change the debate. Nothing to see here!

    Nothing to see here, move along is about right, especially if you are the main stream media and have been trying to brainwash American idol viewers, Without the sun we would be popsicles!
