NASA is making global warming agitprop with taxes. Who'da thunk it? NASA and the military recently got new missions for addressing global warming. This is the left gone wild.

If teachers can't understand this article, they shouldn't be teaching any science dealing with this subject, IMHO.

You’d think NASA would be a little more careful when talking about infrared light. Even “radiant energy” would give the idea. “Heat” is transfer of thermal energy by any method capable of doing so.

Atmospheres do insulate planetary bodies, and thus contribute to greenhousing. But not in the way this silly NASA “lesson” would have it. Werner von Braun must be spinning supersonically in his grave.

Because all gases radiate the heat they acquire

Or they can transfer it by conduction...

Scientifically, AGW is so profoundly stupid that it has taken be an extremely long time to “get” that so many people believe it. To me, the entire AGW argument is like declaring that lightning causes fevers because lighting is hot and fevers are hot, and so we need to stop putting up lighting rods so we stop attracting lightning, and only then can we stop fevers - in other words, stupidity so profound, I can only stare at it with my mouth open.

Sometimes I feel that the last recourse of evil is to literally create mindless zombies in place of life - plastic dolls in place of humans. But I think, how could that ever happen? And then I look around...

NASA seems like it could care less. Go figure.

Greenhouse-whatever is language of the left with negative connotations whenever it's used.

Greenhouse gas and greenhouse effect became scientific terms when man made global warming became a scientific term.

What was the natural atmospheric order of things called before anyone knew what a greenhouse was?

There’s nothing wrong with the theory.

It’s the data that’s a problem.

Here is another article that takes Greenhouse Theory apart. There is no greenhouse effect. Thus, CO2 levels are meaningless. Except to plants.

Interesting.

In the heat of hurrying to bed, I haven’t fully absorbed this yet. Hopefully the full sense of it will radiate more efficiently to a less sleepy mind.
