A NASA report that has been widely embraced by left-wing Climate Cult activists may actually prove that the “Global Warming” narrative started by Al Gore is a hoax.
The fake news and mainstream media mercilessly attacked President Donald Trump for telling the truth about climate change and the Paris Climate accord. He said it was a “hoax,” and the Paris Accord was a trade deal that hindered American businesses while allowing China and India to increase carbon emissions and steal jobs.
“As President, I can put no other consideration before the wellbeing of American citizens. The Paris Climate Accord is simply the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries, leaving American workers — who I love — and taxpayers to absorb the cost in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories, and vastly diminished economic production,” President Trump said at the time.
Reports in 2020 indicated that Paris Accord signatories such as China increased their carbon emissions by upwards of 5 percent in 2019. But as the pandemic hit late in the year and global economies ground to a near-halt, the massive reduction in fossil fuels sent carbon emissions to their lowest point in decades. Taking industrial China as an example, the Asian nation’s carbon emissions declined by a reported 25 percent in 2020. What should have logically followed was cooler temperatures. Well, if you believe the so-called “climate scientist” experts whose funding relies on perpetuating the narrative this is a “global crisis.”
“Earth’s global average surface temperature in 2020 tied with 2016 as the warmest year on record,” according to an analysis by NASA. “Continuing the planet’s long-term warming trend, the year’s globally averaged temperature was 1.84 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the baseline 1951-1980 mean, according to scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York. 2020 edged out 2016 by a very small amount, within the margin of error of the analysis, making the years effectively tied for the warmest year on record.”
The published NASA report indicated that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) agreed that 2020 was the second-warmest year. Of course, the NOAA came under fire for tossing out primary data that pointed to no significant ocean temperature change and using less credible data to make a case for rising temperatures. That data was the basis of the Paris Accord.
But the very evidence used to heighten fears about the planet going up in flames because of human activities such as burning fossil fuels defeats the claim. If 2020 saw at least a 25 percent reduction in fossil fuel use and emissions, shouldn’t cooler temperatures have been recorded? Logic, (real) science, and common sense dictate that fewer emissions result in cooler temperatures. But as President Trump pointed out many times, the climate hoax is about money and jobs, not an existential threat. Call it “gotcha” journalism if you like, but it looks like NASA just outed the climate con artists.
