Global Warming Hysteria: NASA Measurements Appear to Prove Alarmist Models Wrong

Timberrrrrr!  GWH may be on its last leg if this is verified.  Apparently NASA measurements show that more heat escapes into space than the computer models predicted, meaning that any warming that occurs from greenhouse gasses will be much slower than “the consensus” thought, meaning we have time to transition from fossil fuels into renewables without crashing the economy or surrendering national sovereignty to an unelected UN technocracy.  From James Taylor’s post at Forbes:

The new NASA Terra satellite data are consistent with long-term NOAA and NASA data indicating atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds are not increasing in the manner predicted by alarmist computer models. The Terra satellite data also support data collected by NASA’s ERBS satellite showing far more longwave radiation (and thus, heat) escaped into space between 1985 and 1999 than alarmist computer models had predicted. Together, the NASA ERBS and Terra satellite data show that for 25 years and counting, carbon dioxide emissions have directly and indirectly trapped far less heat than alarmist computer models have predicted.

In short, the central premise of alarmist global warming theory is that carbon dioxide emissions should be directly and indirectly trapping a certain amount of heat in the earth’s atmosphere and preventing it from escaping into space. Real-world measurements, however, show far less heat is being trapped in the earth’s atmosphere than the alarmist computer models predict, and far more heat is escaping into space than the alarmist computer models predict.

If true, if the scare models assume wrong data–which we’ve seen alleged before–and the “crisis” really isn’t dire, how many global warming alarmists and environmental radicals will be disappointed?
