NASA Admits Solar Activity Causes Global Warming “NASA spokeswoman Beth Dickey confirmed with SPACE.com earlier today that the reason [satellite] UARS is expected to fall early in its re-entry window is because of the sharp uptick in solar activity. Solar effects from the sun can create an extra drag on satellites in space because they can heat the Earth’s atmosphere…” Oops. I don’t know if this little Dickey is going to have a job tomorrow.

Wait! The sun causes…warming? Here? On Earth? WOW, I had no idea. I am so glad we have smart people to figure that out for me! Cause despite years of sunburn in the summer and freezing winters in Alaska and Colorado and Missouri, I NEVER would EVER have imagined such a thing. Wow again!

Uhm…. so the really hot star in the sky actually makes the Earth warm? Uhm… wow yeah so they needed their doctorates to figure that out? But not only that, the sun participates in global warming *sighs* this is so pathetic.

Okay I am not a Rocket Scientist, But I figured out a long time ago that big fiery ball at the center of our solar system has something to do with weather. You know when its closer in the summer its hot and ice melts (no matter what Al Fat ass says) and in the winter we are father away it gets colder. At night it cools down cause that fiery ball goes elsewhere. NASA hit its stride during the moon landings, since then its been plagued by bad management, and politics and trying to save itself jumped on the “sky is falling bandwagon”. It also decided to sleep with those morons in England who claim we are mere seconds from going poof and becoming our own fiery ball.

Now for all you believers in Global Warming, and other scientific bullshit here’s a little help for you.

If you go outside and its raining, you’ll get wet.
If you go outside and its snowing, you’ll get cold.
If you go outside and your hat blows away its windy.
If you go outside and you sweat, its hot.
If you go outside and see swirling debris, you’ll land in the next state.
If you send money to AL Gore you are stupid.

I don’t need NASA or a TV weatherman to tell me that. For however long earth has been here, its cooled down at times, got warmer at times, and Believe it or not, AL Gore had nothing to do with it.

If you still believe in Global Warming, How about giving me all your stuff cause your gonna die anyway?

……..At night it cools down cause that fiery ball goes elsewhere.

Ain’t never been able to figure just where that thing goes at the end of the day – ‘cept down – that I know fer sure!

Did NASA outreach to Muslims and other oppressed groups like ex-Solyndra employees before concluding this? Or are we going back to the bad old days Before Obama when they used instruments n’ stuff to figure these things out instead of consulting with all affected parties the way science is s’posed to?

Well duh! Most of us who have a lick of common sense have been saying this for years! So, this might mean that we have a warmer than normal winter, which is just OK with me.

I’d settle for warmer than the past 3 or 4 winters!
I live in Florida and am tired of freezing my ass off in the winter!

Oh… Waaah!

You’re not kidding, are you? I suppose not. I’m pushing the 4th year here. Winter 2007/08 wasn’t much. The following did last longer and get a bit colder. I did have concern about not being able to shut and drain the spigots to the outside. I remember replacing a couple of those after they burst in the first surprise freezes during my youthful home ownership in Wisconsin. That always sucked but the lessons that hurt are the ones you remember.

Last year I was in a house that had a nice pool and the pump needed some protection that seemed ridiculous to have been completely unplanned for. But that perspective is mine, built on the memory of 50 years in the north.

It’s all perspective Dean. I’ve lived here 7 years, came to get away from the ever worsening winters in NJ.
I laughed when they claimed a “hard freeze” was coming and found out that they considered getting to 32 degrees or less for 2 hours or more.
Now I am finding that it is not only a more common occurance, but it lasts longer than before. Daytime temps staying in the 40’s with it being windy and overcast. That’s what I mean by freezing my ass off.

I caught on to that, poppajoe. The way they’ve built places down here obviates the changes. Windy and cool feels nasty. Makes it feel cold. With the high moisture in the air, windy and cool is freaking cold! Going back up to MKE soon to enjoy some real weather for a couple weeks.

That right, the wet cold of Florida feels colder than dry cold of the North. Newer homes in Florida now have fireplaces for the two weeks a year when it is down right freezing. Yes, I think that’s funny.

I miss the one I had in Fl.Iit had blowers on it to blow the warmth out into the room rather than allowing it to escape up the chimney like most in Fl. do because you can’t get them to draw quite right. Same problem here in NC.

drb, there are fireplace inserts that can accomplish that for you.

NAH, waste of time and money right now. The one I have is for show only (gas). I’d have to convert it back to a wood burning fireplace first.

Actually, it’s now a month of that cold weather here in West, Central Florida. I have a friend up in the panhandle that tells me it lasts longer and gets colder up there.

Perhaps, I haven’t spent a winter down there in a decade.

I know what you mean poppa! All this globull warming caused the temperature here to drop to -28 below last February, we had near record lows for 5 nights straight. In northern New Mexico, in the Angel Fire, Eagle Nest and Taos areas they did set new low records. On one night Eagle Nest recorded a low record of -42 below zero.

It has snowed the past 2 years out of 3 in SOUTH TEXAS. Though having spent a fair amount of time in the north frowing up, I like a little snow now and again. Oh and a couple years before that, the area was literally frozen solid0big time ice storm.

My sister yelled out “Praise the heavens, she’s a walkin!” We got such a laugh didn’t even notice when the poor thing fell over.

from the Article: …..”but will only be able to pinpoint its actual crash zone to within about 6,000 miles (10,000 km) about two hours before re-entry.”

We got a balls to the wall bus on fire comin at us and this is the best than can do?

NASA has lost a bit of the old luster that made us believe they were all smarty pants over there. Just a quick perusal of this write up left me wondering what other source is there for Solar effects, besides the Sun? The statement seems 3rd grader authored – ‘Solar effects from the Sun…’ cause stuff. No kidding!
