NASA: "Climate Change" and Global Warming caused by Changes in Earth's Solar Orbit and Axial Tilt - NOT MAN-MADE CAUSES

Everything you have been told about "Climate Change" and man-made "Global Warning" has been a deliberate LIE, perpetrated by people who stood to make Billions by duping the public, and NASA has known about this since 1958 - but let the LIE propagate nonetheless.

On its Earth Observatory web site, NASA published in the year 2000, the information they possessed about the Milankovitch Climate Theory, which was PROVED to be fact by core samples from the earth's seas.  Climate Changes - warming and destructive weather - happen naturally from changes in earth's solar orbit, and the extent of earth's axis tilt.  NOT from man-induced factors!

The Serbian astrophysicist Milutin Milankovitch is best known for developing one of the most significant theories relating Earth motions and long-term climate change. Born in 1879 in the rural village of Dalj (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, today located in Croatia), Milankovitch attended the Vienna Institute of Technology and graduated in 1904 with a doctorate in technical sciences. After a brief stint as the chief engineer for a construction company, he accepted a faculty position in applied mathematics at the University of Belgrade in 1909—a position he held for the remainder of his life.

Milankovitch dedicated his career to developing a mathematical theory of climate based on the seasonal and latitudinal variations of solar radiation received by the Earth. Now known as the Milankovitch Theory, it states that as the Earth travels through space around the sun, cyclical variations in three elements of Earth-sun geometry combine to produce variations in the amount of solar energy that reaches Earth:

  1. Variations in the Earth's orbital eccentricity—the shape of the orbit around the sun.


  2. Changes in obliquity—changes in the angle that Earth's axis makes with the plane of Earth's orbit.


  3. Precession—the change in the direction of the Earth's axis of rotation, i.e., the axis of rotation behaves like the spin axis of a top that is winding down; hence it traces a circle on the celestial sphere over a period of time.

Together, the periods of these orbital motions have become known as Milankovitch cycles.



Orbital Variations 
Changes in orbital eccentricity affect the Earth-sun distance. Currently, a difference of only 3 percent (5 million kilometers) exists between closest approach (perihelion), which occurs on or about January 3, and furthest departure (aphelion), which occurs on or about July 4. This difference in distance amounts to about a 6 percent increase in incoming solar radiation (insolation) from July to January. The shape of the Earth’s orbit changes from being elliptical (high eccentricity) to being nearly circular (low eccentricity) in a cycle that takes between 90,000 and 100,000 years. When the orbit is highly elliptical, the amount of insolation received at perihelion would be on the order of 20 to 30 percent greater than at aphelion, resulting in a substantially different climate from what we experience today.

eccentricity = 0

eccentricity = .5

Obliquity (change in axial tilt) 
As the axial tilt increases, the seasonal contrast increases so that winters are colder and summers are warmer in both hemispheres. Today, the Earth's axis is tilted 23.5 degrees from the plane of its orbit around the sun. But this tilt changes. During a cycle that averages about 40,000 years, the tilt of the axis varies between 22.1 and 24.5 degrees. Because this tilt changes, the seasons as we know them can become exaggerated. More tilt means more severe seasons—warmer summers and colder winters; less tilt means less severe seasons—cooler summers and milder winters. It's the cool summers that are thought to allow snow and ice to last from year-to-year in high latitudes, eventually building up into massive ice sheets. There are positive feedbacks in the climate system as well, because an Earth covered with more snow reflects more of the sun's energy into space, causing additional cooling.









Left: The eccentricity of the Earth's orbit changes slowly over time from nearly zero to 0.07. As the orbit gets more eccentric (oval) the difference between the distance from the Sun to the Earth at perihelion (closest approach) and aphelion (furthest away) becomes greater and greater. Note that the Sun is not at the center of the Earth's orbital ellipse, rather it is at one of focal points.

Note: The eccentricty of the orbit shown in the lower image is a highly exaggerated 0.5. Even the maximum eccentricity of the Earth's orbit—0.07—it would be impossible to show at the resolution of a web page. Even so, at the current eccentricity of .017, the Earth is 5 million kilometers closer to Sun at perihelion than at aphelion. (Images by Robert Simmon, NASA GSFC)


Changes in axial precession alter the dates of perihelion and aphelion, and therefore increase the seasonal contrast in one hemisphere and decrease the seasonal contrast in the other hemisphere.


Left: The change in the tilt of the Earth's axis (obliquity) effects the magnitude of seasonal change. At higher tilts the seasons are more extreme, and at lower tilts they are milder. The current axial tilt is 23.5°. Image by Robert Simmon, NASA GSFC)




Left: Precession—the change in orientation of the Earth's rotational axis [this can be seen more clearly in an animation (small (290 kB QuickTime) or large (1.2 MB QuickTime))]—alters the orientation of the Earth with respect to perihelion and aphelion. If a hemisphere is pointed towards the sun at perihelion, that hemisphere will be pointing away at aphelion, and the difference in seasons will be more extreme. This seasonal effect is reversed for the opposite hemisphere. Currently, northern summer occurs near aphelion. (Image by Robert Simmon, NASA GSFC

Using these three orbital variations, Milankovitch was able to formulate a comprehensive mathematical model that calculated latitudinal differences in insolation and the corresponding surface temperature for 600,000 years prior to the year 1800. He then attempted to correlate these changes with the growth and retreat of the Ice Ages. To do this, Milankovitch assumed that radiation changes in some latitudes and seasons are more important to ice sheet growth and decay than those in others. Then, at the suggestion of German Climatologist Vladimir Koppen, he chose summer insolation at 65 degrees North as the most important latitude and season to model, reasoning that great ice sheets grew near this latitude and that cooler summers might reduce summer snowmelt, leading to a positive annual snow budget and ice sheet growth.

But, for about 50 years, Milankovitch's theory was largely ignored. Then, in 1976, a study published in the journal Science examined deep-sea sediment cores and found that Milankovitch's theory did in fact correspond to periods of climate change (Hays et al. 1976).

Specifically, the authors were able to extract the record of temperature change going back 450,000 years and found that major variations in climate were closely associated with changes in the geometry (eccentricity, obliquity, and precession) of Earth's orbit. Indeed, ice ages had occurred when the Earth was going through different stages of orbital variation.

Since this study, the National Research Council of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences has embraced the Milankovitch Cycle model.

...orbital variations remain the most thoroughly examined mechanism of climatic change on time scales of tens of thousands of years and are by far the clearest case of a direct effect of changing insolation on the lower atmosphere of Earth (National Research Council, 1982).

    Perfect theory on a time scale of tens of thousands of years.
    We are recently seeing a global temperature rise over a timescale of 50-years. And the temperature rise is a lot bigger.

    Are you intimating that long term weather variances (eg. climate) might be affected by the SUN?
    Most assuredly you jest!

    The climate change debate is not about science. It is an effort to impose political and economic controls on the population by the elite. And it's another way to divide the population against itself, with some who believe in manmade global warming and some who don't, i.e. divide and conquer.

      Politicians trying to get their sticky fingers in other people's pockets? Oh ye of little faith! Don't you know the congresscritters and senatesluts are in it to serve the public? Why else would they wade in the swamp for a paultry quarter-million or so bucks a year?

    Great show last night. I passed along to many friends. Some of those friends did science and engineering for private companies, and that work remains important today. Science run and conducted on government grants is mainly worthless. The old saying at universities and government circles was "Publish or Parish." That does not appear to have been true in Milankovitch's time!

    Couple this work with that of Dr. Valentina Zarkova on the Solar Dynamo: with that of the work on planetary gravitational effects on sunspots: and one has a pretty good picure of what's going on. Add to that the fact the the solar minimum will lead to a cooling of the Earth, already seen in the Thermosphere being at record low and the decreased magnetic coupling of the Sun and Earth due to reduced solar output and a decline in the Earth's magnetic field leading to incresed cosmic ray penetration and increased cloudiness and cooling: and the increased earthquake activity and volcanoes spewing eruptions into the stratosphere leads one to a very dismal view of the future of planet Earth for the next period of time. Interesting times ahead.

      The really BIG Question is why aren't our leaders preparing for this? Why aren't we, as a civilization, preparing for this??? Are they going to wait until it is too late, or go to war and try and annhilate most of the population of the planet?

        The elites have massive underground bases and transportation systems. They will simply go down and let the culling on the surface play out.

    GREAT science lesson Hal. . . . . too bad the low life, poor I.Q. intelligence level of the Helliewood movie slaves can't understand this .... aaah, can't say all , some are really intelligent souls that are trapped in their income method. Kinda like a kid that grows up into the undercounter drug business.

    You need to read this book Typhon:Reaper of the Worlds. Available at amazon here
    Mentions Milutin Milankovitch quite a bit. His cycle/theory etc. You won't have to worry about over population. Trouble coming our way!!

      Thank you for picking up the ball.
      History is telling us of a destroying comet returning in long cycles also through our sun system. They call him "destroyer" or by different names. Will he be back some time? Yes, some time in the very very distant future. More than 1000 (one thousand) years from now. That is not to say, there won´t be any other troubles ahead for earth, even from space. Climate cooling (instead of warming, thanks Matthew) could become and additional threat
      Despite of that all ... the subject/problem overpopulation will continue into our future, as we definitely will not be exterminated or wiped out by some possible events whatsoever, like some rumors try to make us believe. Of course we will see what one could term transformationtime ahead, others may call this a period of cataclysms. Whatever. Feel free ... After that serious correction period we´ll continue in our development, slowly further upwards. Not fast, because we will continue to have wars again and consequently destructions further on. We will NOT be enlightened at all after that very difficult period to appear now. I thought I had to share at least some points of my view to give courage to people seeing simply only black. For this there is no reason. But we definitely have to prepare. Firstly the way, Hal is suggesting, secondly, we have to become more stable mentally, otherwise the expected changes could be too much.

    More than ANYTHING else we have to understand in our narrow brains consisting of believes and linear concepts, that we have NOT THE LEAST CHANCE to survive on this planet with a population number that is about 15 times (or even more) higher just now, than our planet earth ideally is able to provide a comfortable home und life for.
    You got that?
    Is the crowd of people aware how much hunger is happening on earth right now already? How much poverty, how many physical and mental illnesses are there resp. still coming, how many wars are fought by aggressive arrogant fucking imoral empires (greetings Paul Lambert) to make sure they can survive easily on the back of powerless humans and other countries? Come on, everybody can see or hear that by simply turning on tv or radio.

    Lets see, how many american presidents actually wanted PEACE??? Think well before you answer! And I do not mean Eisenhowers "Atoms for Peace" way of life and policy. I mean a world policy aiming at true peace and understanding of our similar, commonly shared situation on this planet. And I mean peace in the highest consequence for that we have to banish the ONLY money greedy, "heartless" and totally arrogant individuals and families of this world to distant planets, who we definitely know of. (I am not in favor of death penalties.) There is nothing the earth human civilisation would need more desperatly NOW but a complete turn around in view on life and ethics which 100% would include a birth control to get down in numbers..
    Ignoring this fatal situation of ours completely, some countries, world organizations, religions or big foundations enthusiastically are now playing "green" or play responsible to avoid climate change or -warming? Why is that? Its for absolutly NOTHING but.... MONEY again. (Money makes the world go round.) In many places of the world they are planing to introduce soon all kinds of new climate taxes and worthless measures with regard to climate change, for nothing else but simply to lead new streams of an awful lot of money into their always "we want more money -crying" pockets.
    And by the way: None of their proposed measures to reduce CO² will yield any melioration of life on earth whatsoever.
    Why? Because world population number is growing further and further EXPONENTIONALLY, aggravating our life situation (for instance need for food, water, transportation, electricity,security...) on earth further and further, leaving nice sounding CO² measures totally worthless, and that in particular as a large number of serious scientists are demonstrating to us that a big portion of climate changes definitely are NOT man-made.
    In a world that is drowning in lies meanwhile (you also can say is heading towards war), you always have to try to look behind the curtain, not to get fooled.
    In thinking about how to generate new fresh huge floods of money, by even frenetic support of gullible masses of people the always money greeding individuals, families, foundations or bank institutions of our world sent out their messengers and made their think tanks work for them. To get some inspiration they decided to visit Hollywoods masquerade rooms and .... returned as climate-protectors to the world. They may be looking and sounding friendly to you in their green talks and outfits, but remember, they are pure actors, giving you a fantastic new fuckup show with measures and proposals useless to a climate change but nevertheless awful expensive. Remember.
    This world will return to honesty again, yes I agree. But NOT now. To re-learn what honesty is, we need to go through times of hard learning. The ones who promise you now something wonderful for even higher taxes and levies, are not your guiding angels.

    Superb article! Love it. Also, any inside intel either debunking or supporting a "intruding binary celestial system" would be awesome. And Antarctica info,if available.
