Is NASA catching on to global cooling?

It appears so. Solar minimum. Things could be getting quite chilly.

“We see a cooling trend,” says Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center. “High above Earth’s surface, near the edge of space, our atmosphere is losing heat energy. If current trends continue, it could soon set a space age record cold.”

A few years in the scheme of things, meh. Interesting article though.

Check this one out.

Do you understand anything from this article?

Who are you asking?

But things are not getting chillier. It’s the observed and undisputable opposite. Which is in agreement with climate change predictions, of which upper atmospheric cooling is also expected.

nothing in science is undisputable, esp something that is so massively variable and complex


Hey, when was the last time you took a buzz through the thermosphere to say it’s not getting chillier?

Things are always chilly in the thermosphere.

Are you aware that increased CO2 in our atmosphere warms the lower atmosphere (ie. troposphere) and cools the upper atmosphere (i.e thermosphere)?

Seriously, you guys should learn the basics before rushing to post links you believe to refute AGW… its a bad look :wink:


You have a physics degree. Tell us all the constants you learned about and how disputable they are.

constants arent so called global climate “science”

wanna try again?

show us the relationship between co2 levels and lower atmosphere temperatures


If Thinking man really wanted to see the realtionship between increased CO2 and decrease in upper atmospheric temperatures he would look it up himself. Farming it out to others shows a lack of good faith posting and that the ‘thanks’ is not sincere. What kind of “discussion” are we supposed to have if there is a genuine lack of sincerity or even interest in the topic at hand?


No, Altair. I assumed he saw this and took it as global cooling in contrast to global warming. Which he does.

Is this a test? :grin:

Discusses CO2 in upper and lower atmosphere.

Atmospheric CO2 and change in several variables, including temperature.

Preparing for a big dose of anti-intellectualism.

I will tell you about constants. There are people here who are constantly negative. They are called negative constants.:man_shrugging:

“The thermosphere always cools off during Solar Minimum. It’s one of the most important ways the solar cycle affects our planet,

So why did you include “global cooling” in your title? This has nothing to do with cooling in the part of the atmosphere you actually live in. Or meaningful global temperature.

Wait, after our last exchange where you repeatedly refused to link to anything that supported your claim that temperatures were not rising, you think Im going to run off and do your own work for you? No thanks buddy… you get what you give.

But you could easily, I don’t know, google graphs for CO2 concentrations and lower troposphere temperatures. Dont make this harder than it needs to be…

Rather than simply repeating this, tell us what you think this means.

We’re all left to assume that you believe this article is promoting the idea of global cooling. Is that your position? Just asking because, if so, it would be wrong… :wink:
