Neutral Fact Finder Claims to Fully Explain Global Warming and Accuses NASA of Distorting and Withholding Climate Data

16 01 2018

SAN JOSE, Calif., January 16, 2018 - The following is the opinion of Kelleher & Associates Environmental Mgmt LLC. Dear President Trump and other interested parties: My prior news release on December 6, 2017, titled “Neutral Fact Finder Pinpoints the Primary Source of Arctic and Global Warming” includes an introduction section that is not repeated here. This is a follow-up to that release and it serves to explain exactly what has been causing climate change making good use of NASA’s Ozone-Watch Website maps and other NASA imagery.

The global-warming and rapid sea-ice melting and glacial retreat that has occurred since the late 1980s, is the predictable result of an unusually long period of unusually high levels of solar activity since the mid-1930s over solar cycles 17 through 24. Climate scientists that have been asserting that this is impossible are mistaken. The fact that CO2 has a documented specific heat...
