Want to know the latest global warming news? Don’t bother looking in U.S. media. They can’t be bothered with stories that contradict the man-made climate change narrative. But the truth is out there.
Let’s start with a new paper from NASA — a distinctly American organization — that was covered by the British Express.
The newspaper tells us that our space program has “found the Earth has cooled in areas of heavy industrialization where more trees have been lost and more fossil fuel burning takes place.”
This is, of course, the opposite of what we’ve been told for decades.
The Express reports that the findings confirm that the aerosols from fossil-fuel combustion “actually cool the local environment, at least temporarily,” as they reflect “solar radiation away from the planet.”
A NASA official said solar radiation is similarly bounced away from Earth when “deforestation in northern latitudes” results in bare land that “increases reflected sunlight.”
The Express further reports that the NASA paper’s lead author said the findings show the “complexity” involved in estimating future global temperatures.
This is something we’ve been saying for years. While the mainstream American press can’t get off its carbon-dioxide fixation, we’ve noted that far too many variables affect global climate to focus on a single influence.
The British Daily Mail also wrote about this NASA paper, which clearly has high news value.
But the U.S. press couldn’t get out of bed to cover the story. As far as we can tell, the legacy media in this country ignored it entirely.
The same can be said about a study conducted by the Norwegian Polar Institute, which found “that there are probably more polar bears than the last time the bears were counted in this area in 2004, in spite of the fact that there have been many years with poor ice cover during this period.” The American press doesn’t want the public to know this because it throws into doubt the story it’s been feeding us since the 1980s.
Remember, we have been told over and again that man-made global warming was a grave threat to polar bears, which are an endangered species.
Yet here’s this study telling us that “scientists now estimate that there are around 975 polar bears in the Norwegian region, whereas they estimated a number of 685 in 2004,” while another has found them to be in “excellent” condition, with some being “as fat as pigs.”
Indeed, polar bears are making “a surprise comeback.”
Finally, in an effort to deliver a public service that the mainstream media refuse to provide, we point out that the temperature data that supposedly show warming have been corrupted by poor positioning.
“The majority of weather stations used by (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) to detect climate change temperature signal have been compromised by encroachment of artificial surfaces like concrete, asphalt and heat sources like air conditioner exhausts,” says Anthony Watts, a former meteorologist who is the lead author of a study of temperature station locations.
Watts believes his work “demonstrates conclusively that this issue affects temperature trends and that NOAA’s methods are not correcting for this problem, resulting in an inflated temperature trend.”
As a result of this systematic error, Watt believes the U.S. temperature record needs to be revised.
Nor is this problem limited to America.
Watts says there’s also “evidence of this same sort of siting problem around the world at many other official weather stations, suggesting that the same upward bias on trend also manifests itself in the global temperature record.”
All three of these are significant stories. But instead of doing its due journalistic diligence, the press would rather muse about the role climate change might be playing in the warm Christmas weather in the Eastern part of the country.
It’s all part of the liberal narrative. Science that doesn’t agree with the media’s agenda is treated as if it’s myth.
