Gorebal warming never actually had anything to do with carbon dioxide. Not even a correlation except once in a while when there was a coincidence. During the Great Depression, carbon dioxide went down but temps went up, for example. [To avoid being nitpicked to death by the ringers, technically some of the ten warmest years occurred during the 1930’s.] Doesn’t prove anything; HOWEVER it does give lie to the claim that redcuing carbon dioxide emissions will cool the planet.
Keep in mind that the OCEANS [not an acronym … it’s the oceans, like the Pacific, the Atlantic, etc, and not the supermarket chain] are the biggest source of carbon dioxide emissions, all even more so when the oceans warm up. The oceans and biosphere REGULATE carbon dioxide concentrations. [What is really weird is that the most often quoted carbon dioxide measuring station is at Mona Loa, in Hawaii, which is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. When the ocean water warms up, the carbon dioxide goes into the atmosphere.
Humans produce less than 4% of the carbon dioxide that goes into the air every year and as a green house gas, carbon dioxide lags far behind water vapor both in quantity and the spectral range of infrared absorbed.
Finally, ALL of the claims about global warming, climate change and the rest comes from COMPUTER models that have never been verified. Not ever. And there are more than 20 of the computer models and they do not agree with one another.
If the science was really solved, the models would agree and there would be exactly ONE climate model.
And keep in mind, that the apostle of climate change, Al Gore, has no scientific background of any kind. At all. He is so weak that he won’t debate.
I went and got a subscription to “The Energy Advocate” a snail mail newsletter published by Dr. Howard Hayden. Fabulous. www.energyadvocate.com also visit www.valeslake.com
The October 2009 issue of The Energy Advocate provided some of the info above, but the October issue actually has a lot more that I just didn’t have time to key in. Great stuff.
It’s probably the best of the newsletters for both technical and lay people. Dr. Hayden explains everything and provides references for further looking up.
