There are small but important similarities with climate change and research in evolution. Both tend to create scenarios of hypothetical realities. Some interesting evidence recently came to light, NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011, shows the earth releasing more heat into space than what computer models predicting global warming said it would be.

“The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show,” Spencer said in a July 26 University of Alabama press release. “There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans.”
Man-made carbon dioxide emissions is generally referred to as the cause of all global warming. The question is asked, will carbon dioxide emissions produced by man indirectly trap far more heat by causing large increases in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds? What computer models say is one thing but real-time observations say another. The data clearly shows carbon dioxide emissions are not the major cause in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds as the computer models have predicted.
NASA satellite data has also shown more heat escaping into space between 1985 and 1999 than what computer models have predicted. So what does this mean? If man-made CO2 was responsible, there should be more heat being trapped in the earth’s atmosphere than what is being detected. In other words, the real-time data should be on par with the predictions of the computer models, right?
Does this mean the earth will never warm up? No! Historically the earth has warmed and cooled long before the industrial revolution and will continue to do so. But isn’t this a striking similarity between climate change and evolution? Both theories hold to predictions that are later falsified by the actual data. Then it becomes a media and political circus with claims that the major agrees there is no debate in this theory. Indeed, but they are being paid to discover global warming rather than being paid to see whether or not man is causing it. It’s the same thing with evolution, of course on different issues but their argument remains the same on the confirmation of it.
