London - Climate change is far less serious than “alarmists” predict, an eminent Nasa scientist has said.

Dr Roy Spencer, who works on the space agency’s temperature-monitoring satellites, claimed they showed “a huge discrepancy” between the real levels of heating and forecasts by the United Nations and other groups.

After looking at the levels of radiation in the atmosphere over the past ten years, he believes the Earth releases a lot more heat into space than previously thought.

This means carbon dioxide emissions do not trap as much heat or force temperatures up as much as global warming bodies fear.

But critics say his research, published in the journal Remote Sensing, is over too short a period and ignores other factors. - Daily Mail
