Whew… No Carbon Monoxide or California Quake.


Whew… No Carbon Monoxide or California Quake // Published on Mar 6, 2016

Starting on Feb 25th, it seemed from NASA satellite data that the gases CO, CO2 and SO2 were at very high levels in the air over California. By Feb 29th, with no message from NASA, many people in the public were concerned and I produced two videos looking at the data. Thankfully, it turned out that the satellite data and thus the assimilation model were wrong. In this video I discuss the glitch timeline. Hopefully, everybody can learn something from this experience, like I have.

    Thanks for clarification, Mr. Beckwith! Some sick deniers are now trolling in the comment section under your youtube video. Some say, you have been threatened by NASA to silence you or that you are a “puppet” of NASA/the government. Others come up with chemtrails, harp and other shit. The deniers will use any conspiracy BS to discredit climate science. Ugly.

    Anyone who visits nullschool, should notize the DISCLAIMER at that webpage.

    Keep the serious, educational, real stuff coming and thanks again for clarification!

    A question on how methane will be released at certain temperatures. Could such a release be in very large amounts all at once ? A “champain-bottle with pressure release”? Could this result in a “new big bang” with the potential of a large earthquake or maybe even stronger ?

    Climate change=gas-release. Wether the nullschool/NASA-CO story was true or false should not be the point of discussion. CO, methane, etc are already escaping in large amounts and that is only getting worse. Could the Arctic become the hottest spot on the globe because methane contains the heat ?

    Cooling it with Earth involves working outside the limits of error in a one off effort to keep Earth HZ.
    The zeroing in on detail of an entropy rise at heat in a world that is at odds fundamentally w Earth. So to work – involves physics formed by quantum mechanics at snap awareness of emotional man.
    The error correction of pecuniary system large at basis of intelligence extinction blindness fault.
    So the story goes, who knew, why didn’t there happen to be multiple sources of information 2C.
    An earthquake of awareness needs to shake the trees world wide and rock the boat of money.
    The world enterprise needs accounting error correction so work naturally helps Earth recover.

    Paul, it has become clear that European satellite data (Copernicus) has revealed the exact same massive, vast CO emission on the US west coast. This is not an equipment glitch. The equipment has been functioning just fine. We know this because other independent monitoring equipment has reported the exact same CO emission conditions. I am not supporting any “conspiracy theory” (what a bogus moniker to begin with) when I say that we have concrete evidence to demonstrate that NASA has lied. I can envision no circumstance where this is not the case.


    • Nemesis says:

      You are not supporting any “conspiracy theory”, but you think, NASA is lying? What motive should NASA have to lie? We can hear that from the deniers of anthropogenic climate change deniers every day, that “NASA is lying”. See, no earth quake, no one died because of CO poisening, nothing, nothing happened at all^^


      • Miley Frederi says:

        NASA is a private corporation, “Nemesis.” They can, will, have, and do operate at the behest of a power structure. They are lying to hide potentially alarming or stirring information from the proximal public. The CO concentrations were indeed high, but not high enough to cause fatalities on the ground. Many respiratory symptoms were reported during the CO emission period. Sometimes you need to be able to think like a critical investigator instead of a faithful pupil.

      The real news from NASA are already scary enough, even without speculative earth quakes:

      “ February 2016 Was The Most Abnormally Warm Month Ever Recorded, Topping January 2016, NASA Says”

      Sometimes you need to be able to think like a critical investigator instead of a faithful pupil.

      Aha, thanks a lot for you kind advice. Please report your interesting/important findings to Paul Beckwith, who said “ Thankfully, it turned out that the satellite data and thus the assimilation model were wrong.” on this post (see above). He is the man, I am just a pupil 😎
      And please don’t forget to read the DISCLAIMER at nullscholl:


      Have a nice day,
