Global Warming?

Hardly. Try Global-Cooling...

Main Points

The effect of so-called greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide is extremely minuscule.

1) Only 3% of the CO2 in the air results from human activity.

2) Carbon dioxide is already aborbing all available radiation at its peaks of 2.7, 4.3 and 15 �M; and most of it within 10 meters of distance. Changing the amount of CO2 can only change the distance, not total heat. details

3) The atmosphere is heated by conduction and convection from the surface, but propagandist imply that only radiation is involved.

4) The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is not determined by production, because it is regulated by the oceans. Cold oceans absorbs more, and warm oceans release more back into the atmosphere.

5) The 30% increase in atmospheric CO2 over the past century indicates oceans heating (due to other causes), and it is too minuscule to be relevant. It is an indicator, not cause, of oceans heating.

6) Air has a much lower heat capacity than water, which means oceans can heat the air, but the air cannot significantly heat the oceans.

7) Water in the air is a greenhouse gas which swamps the others. It is about a hundred times more prevalent than CO2 in clear air, and much more significant on a cloudy day.

8) When el Nino heats the Pacific, CO2 increases in the atmosphere; and after El Nino, it normalizes. It wouldn't normalize if oceans were not reabsorbing the CO2. And if oceans can reabsorb that CO2, they can absorb any other CO2.

9) Global warming has been continuous for about 20,000 years, as always occurs between ice ages, not just the past 150 years which propagandists refer to.

10) Plants need more CO2 to grow on. Their growth increases substantially when more CO2 is provided. The oceans had to be large to aquify the planet, but then they absorbed too much CO2 for good plant growth.

Back in 1998, thousands of scientists signed a petition offering that global warming was nothing but a bunko scheme. Today, more are "hesitating" because research dollars are often attached to the agreement that our miniscule production of CO2 has anything to do with warming.
