Of course we’re being told that “global warming is bringing clouds closer to the ground,” and that “Falling clouds could counter global warming.”
Data from the NASA Terra satellite shows that the world’s clouds have lowered during the last decade, says a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
Most of the reduction was due to fewer clouds at very high altitudes
The clouds “may be falling in response to rising global temperatures and having a cooling effect on global warming,” say researchers at the University of Auckland
“We don’t know exactly what causes the cloud heights to lower,” said lead researcher, Professor Roger Davies. “But it must be due to a change in the circulation patterns that give rise to cloud formation at high altitude.”
The time frame is short (only 10 years), but if future observations show that clouds are truly getting lower, it could have an important effect on global climate change.
Lower clouds in the atmosphere would allow Earth to cool more efficiently, “potentially offsetting some of the warming caused by greenhouse gases.”
The global warming religion rears its ugly head once again. But I’m thinking they have it backward.
Is global warming bringing those clouds closer to the ground?
Or could it be that those clouds are coming closer to the ground because of global cooling?

“Two thoughts, lower magnetic field lets in more gamma rays deeper into atmosphere and temperature of the atmosphere is dropping,” says Paul. “My thinking correct?”
“This one is funny with the ‘global warming’ dig in the middle…. ie, helps prevent such, without mention of the opposite affect such conditions might allow, such as an ice age,” says Greg.
“I had to send you this despite the obvious fact that a colder upper atmosphere causes Earth’s atmospheric bubble to contract and as a direct result for clouds to form closer to Earth’s surface,” says C. Peter.
“Yet the global warmist nutbars STILL try to blame global warming for this sure sign of quickening Global Cooling. Why do they continue with their lies and double-speak when it is becoming so obvious that we need to start fearing the coming cold?”
