A study by NASA is claiming to have confirmed the Democrat narrative, announcing that it discovered direct evidence of humans “impacting and causing a change in Earth’s climate,” according to Fox 2 Detroit.
Ryan Kramer, a co-author of the study, discussed the findings from the NASA study in an interview with FOX.
“Our study is the first time we’ve been able to track how humans are directly changing Earth’s energy balance on the global scale over time with observations,” Kramer said.
The study, which has been described as a first of its kind, calculated driving forces and found an increase between 2003 and 2018, which they say accounts for almost all of the long‐term growth in the total top‐of‐atmosphere radiation imbalance during this period of time.
“We confirm that rising greenhouse gas concentrations account for most of the increases in the radiative forcing, along with reductions in reflective aerosols,” NASA wrote. “This serves as direct evidence that anthropogenic activity has affected Earth’s energy budget in the recent past.”
This study claims to directly link humans to recent climate change.
“Our results show that human actions are directly changing the Earth’s energy balance,” Kramer stated. “It’s confirmation from observations that human activity is leading to climate change. While we’ve known this for decades and there are countless other lines of evidence, our finding is based on direct, modern-day global observations while the other sources of evidence often require at least a little bit of interpretation using climate model simulations.”
“By bringing in additional types of satellite measurements, we were able to first diagnose the energy changes caused by processes that can be either human-caused or naturally occurring, such as changes in clouds, which reflect and absorb energy, or changes in the amount of moisture in the air,” Kramer added. “We then diagnosed the portion of the energy change left over, after subtracting these components from the total. This is the energy change specifically caused by emissions of heat trapping greenhouse gases or reductions in aerosols – energy reflecting particles that often come from pollution. These human-induced energy changes are known as the radiative forcing of the Earth. Our study is the first to diagnose it on the global scale with observations.”
The Bottom Line
It’s really surprising to hear confirmation that there was no scientific study directly linking “climate change” to humans prior to this, as the left has constantly screamed that the right was denying science every time conservatives questioned the narrative. Can the study be trusted though? When a biased group of people is searching for information to confirm their bias, can it not be said that the information discovered could be manipulated to achieve the desired outcome?
