I figured I would just jump right out and say how I feel on this subject. GLOBAL WARMING IS NOT PROVEN. Global Warming, and Man Made Global Warming, and CO2 Based Global Warming are theories. This is not a religion, and those who are skeptical are not heretics. It is not certain, or likely, but plausible.
I thought about linking scientific papers, but I have some 1200 links, and that would be foolhardy. Let us just take some of the basic parts of the Global Warming Orthodoxy.
First that it is warmer now than EVER before. By now, almost everyone has seen the hockey stick from Al Gore’s film. What many do not know is that was statistically proven flawed more than a year before Al Gore filmed it. It was warmer in 1000AD than it is now, and was warmer for several hundred years. It was FAR warmer in the Holocene period around 4000BC, for almost a millennia. I’m sure it was all the automobiles and industrialization the Babylonians did that caused that.
More over, neither time did CO2 cause it. In fact the only time in that period when CO2 was spiking up was near the peak and during the fall in temperatures, past the peak so to speak. That leads me to talk about CO2 and how it effects global warming.
CO2 is the single largest component that allows plants to grow. There have been MANY studies that show more CO2 in the air allows plants to grow faster, and stronger (
Sounds interesting, doesn’t it. So what causes water vapor to fluctuate in the atmosphere? Cosmic rays, and the solar wind. So a single sunspot can equate many hundreds of years of total earth CO2 output. Is my SUV really all that bad?
That leads to another question. If CO2 isn’t even all that bad, how bad is human caused CO2 (all the planes, trains, cars, and power plants combined)? Well the oceans produce somewhere between 20x and 50x as much as humans on any given year, and for example animal droppings in
So why are people so hip on CO2? Today it has to do with being anti-capitalisms and Anti-West. Who produces the most atmospheric CO2? The
I’m all for removing our dependence on fossil fuels, and I don’t just mean Ethanol. I mean Hydrogen or some form of Fusion (there are many theories but no one has yet spent the money needed to research them properly.). I think the
Anyway, that is just a small part of how I feel on the subject. Basically Al Gore is nuts, and needs to give back the Nobel Prize because he is wrong.
