More good news for the climate, which means bad news for the lucrative climate change industry.Forbes reports:
“NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth's atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing.
The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed."
It’s further evidence that we are not going to die from rising sea levels or apocalyptic hurricanes. And polar bears can sleep peacefully once again, free of indigestion from last night’s seal dinner because they didn't have to swim so far from some melted iceberg.
Speaking of polar bears, the AP is reporting that a famous scientist who announced five years ago that polar bears were drowning in the Arctic is under investigation and on administrative leave.
Charles Monnett was one of the scientists whose work helped make the polar bear the poster child of climate change.
Now, the wildlife biologist is reportedly facing accusations of scientific misconduct.
The AP reports that:
“The federal agency where he works told him he was on leave pending the results of an investigation into "integrity issues." A watchdog group believes it has to do with the 2006 journal article about the bear, but a source familiar with the investigation said late Thursday that placing Monnett on leave had nothing to with scientific integrity or the article.”
Yet, “excerpts of interviews investigators conducted with Monnett and fellow researcher Jeffrey Gleason, (showed) they were questioned about the observations that led to the article.”
Whether or not Monnett has personally done anything wrong, climate science as a whole has clearly been corrupted and it's reputation seriously damaged by Climategate and other scandals; the result of the lure of big grant money for any scientist who can scape together enough evidence of an impending apocalypse.
