A recent NASA report throws the space agency into conflict with its climatologists after new NASA measurements prove that carbon dioxide acts as a coolant in Earth's atmosphere.
NASA's Langley Research Center has collated data proving that “greenhouse gases” actually block up to 95 percent of harmful solar rays from reaching our planet, thus reducing the heating impact of the sun. The data was collected by Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry, (or SABER). SABER monitors infrared emissions from Earth’s upper atmosphere, in particular from carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), two substances thought to be playing a key role in the energy balance of air above our planet’s surface.
This is complete nonsense. Tide gauges show a constant rate of post glacial subsidence since 1850. Sea level there has nothing to do with “man made CO2″
I'm sorry. I don't see anywhere in that article where anything is said about climate. Nor do I see where is it said that increasing levels of CO2 in the lower atmosphere has a cooling effect. Can you point that out for me. It is my understanding that the thermosphere is actually the outer reaches of the atmosphere. I don't think what goes on up there has much to do with what goes on 50 miles below.
So nasa steps in with a new climate report on how co2 is going to freeze not fry.

No. It shows that with new tools new things are learned. That's how science works.
All this proves is that NASA and Science itself is Full of Crap. They can make the outcome anything they want it to be depending on the current agenda.
During the heating impulse, the thermosphere puffed up like a marshmallow held over a campfire, temporarily increasing the drag on low-orbiting satellites.

NASA, and everyone who worked on this study, are "GLOBAL WARMING DENIERS."
