Measure earth temperature from the moon
by leon garner
Man, It's hot in here.
If the global warming argument is correct you would expect to see a reduction in earth's temperature as measured from a station positioned on the moon. This would seem to be a simple experiment for NASA.
- The moon, or some other vantage point such as our satellites, some of which are equipped with the correct instruments and infrastructure. I don't quite get why a reduction; most would expect to see an increase in an experiment of this type.
Have a look at a bit more insight into how temperature profiles are derived from satellite data.

In spite of the fact that it may appear as a simple experiment at first glance, there are scientific factors to consider that provide a more comprehensive understanding of global warming.
We need to clarify that global warming refers to the long-term trend of higher average temperatures on Earth's surface. Global warming is mainly caused by greenhouse gases building up in the atmosphere, which trap heat.
We have to account for distance between the moon and Earth, the moon's lack of atmosphere, and the complexity of measuring temperature remotely in order to measure Earth's temperature accurately. Conducting a direct temperature comparison between the moon and Earth is challenging because of these factors.
Furthermore, the Earth's temperature isn't just determined by its own radiative balance.
There's a complex interplay between internal processes, like oceanic circulation patterns, and external factors like solar radiation variations and greenhouse gas concentrations. Various local and global factors can influence regional variations in temperature.
Scientists use ground-based measurements, satellite data, and climate models to study global warming. Comprehensive studies give us a better idea of how the Earth's temperature and climate are changing
NASA and other scientific institutions monitor Earth's temperature continuously using satellite technology and ground measurements. As a result, we're better able to understand climate change and its effects.To fully understand global warming,
we need scientific consensus, extensive research, and rigorous analysis. We can better understand how greenhouse gas emissions, climate change, and Earth's temperature are related by examining multiple lines of evidence.
While measuring the Earth's temperature from the moon may seem intriguing, it doesn't provide a direct or comprehensive assessment of global warming. A robust scientific understanding of climate change requires considering a lot of factors and data from different sources.
Thanks for the thoughts, Leon
