An astronaut in space

Now THAT’s an awesome selfie

Everyone’s favorite Science Guy, Bill Nye, shared an article on his Facebook page about famous climate denier Marc Morano refusing to take a $20,000 bet offered by Bill Nye about whether the planet will continue getting hotter. It didn’t take long before climate deniers were swarming Nye’s Facebook page with their own “facts” about climate science. Facebook user Fer Morales offered the following comment:

Fer Morales Riiiiight, despite NASA confirming that fossil fuels are actually cooling the planet’s temperature, and that there’s more ice than in the last century in the polar caps. And the fact that the so-called rises of the sea levels have not materialized, and that any real scientist doesn’t back up man-made climate change at all, since it’s a cycle that has existed even before we did. Yep, solid science, leftards.

There can be little doubt that Fer expected this response:

NASA Climate responds to climate deniers
That’s gonna leave a mark

Oh, snap! The earth got a little hotter with that burn. And NASA didn’t stop there. They continued replying to commenters who had it all wrong:

NASA Climate Change Andy Andreadis NASA does not “fudge” numbers. All data requires statistical adjustments to remove bias. Temperatures are adjusted to coordinate time of day, remove the urban heat island effect, account for station moves, etc. This is all very clearly documented. These adjustments are performed to make the data more accurate.…

NASA Climate Change Matthew Kissell Please see the response above. The UK Met Office, NOAA, Japan Meteorological Agency, and Berkeley Earth all use slightly different corrections but arrive at very similar results.…

NASA Climate Change…

NASA Climate Change There is far too much focus on surface temperatures. They are but one measure of warming. All other measures (sea level, loss of ice sheets and glaciers, lake warming, etc.) continue unabated.

Way to go team NASA Climate Change!
