Skip to comments.The CO2 Lie (One more domino falls)
Posted on 02/11/2010 2:20:17 AM PST by The Raven
Climate Change: A new study shows that Earth's ability to absorb carbon dioxide from all sources, including man, has remained unchanged for 160 years. As it turns out, there may be no carbon to offset.
A major tenet of the global warming religion, straight from the Book of Gore, has been that the ability of the earth to handle increasing CO2 emissions is finite and that once the "tipping point" is reached, the earth will warm uncontrollably. Well, another climate domino has fallen the myth that man-made CO2 is leading to climate catastrophe.
The new study, ..show that only 45% of man's emissions, not 100% as warmers claim, stays in the atmosphere, ..
The rest is absorbed by nature, and that percentage hasn't changed since 1850. ..
.. This post-Climate-gate study provides another nail in the coffin of cap-and-trade and shows why the Environmental Protection Agency should not be allowed to destroy the U.S. economy by absurdly regulating carbon dioxide, the basis for all life on earth, as a pollutant.

Not surprised. Green plants (including microscopic plankton in the sea) consider CO2 to be a yum-yum.
I forgot the source-—Invester’s Business Daily
For later read.
So the final nail in the coffin of so called “AGW”.
Now when do the massive lawsuits and criminal indictments for worldwide fraud start landing on fat Al Gore’s desk?
That pompous horse’s behind just cannot get off scott free after pulling a swindle like this.
LOL. Hubby and I were discussing this today. He is a biology major. I said it sounds to me like we just all need to plant some trees. He laughed and said it made more sense than cap and tax.
Let your yard grow high. Do your part to prevent global warming.
LOL. Tried that when we lived in Springfield, Mo. Didn’t go over well. City Hall issued Citation and gave us 5 days to correct or be fined.
Al Gore is just riding the same horse that Bernie Madoff and Ken Lay came into town on.
Essentially, pulling something out of thin air this time. And a very small fraction of air at that, to boot.
As far as an agent of climate change, carbon dioxide cannot possibly compare with the simple water molecule. Why isn’t anybody getting into selling “water units”, as that apparently a very scarce and valuable product.
I have a “Yeah but....” question
If the earth absorbes 55% of the CO2 - in the plants and ocean.......how much of it is permanent and how much is not (later re-emitted after decay?)
I presume what they are saying here is the entire 55% is permanent???
The frauds at the EPA are trying to peddle the monstrous lie that CO2, necessary for all vegetative life, is a pollutant!
My God, that is a scientific fact we learned in elementary school.
We can only hope and pray that Washington DC will be continually battered by vicious weather year-round. The federal employees who work there should be prevented from ever going back to work. These troublemakers, like those at the EPA, are deniers of truth, and of science and would destroy life on the planet if left to their lunacy.
Arbor Day is coming up soon.
Now here’s the problem:
Knorr arrived at that figure by relying solely on measurements and statistical data, including historical records extracted from Antarctic ice. He did not rely, as the CRU did, on badly written computer models with built-in fudge factors to direct the data to a foregone conclusion.
Where’s this guy get off actually using real data? It reminds me of a story my younger brother told me about an economics professor he had.
A student asked the professor if he ever tried to apply his theories. The professor answered “Once, but the results weren’t what was expected so I quit doing it.”
Do not allow yourself to use the recent cold weather as the argument against the climate change groups.....it is no better than pointing to a heatwave as evidence of climate change.
The walls are coming down and the data is clearly showing the lies that were disseminated by scientists who allowed their political beliefs to over-ride facts.
Articles like this are great sources of information we can use. Massive amounts of snow in DC is just as rare as a Cat 5 hurricane hitting New Orleans and does not help either side.
HOAX exposed AGAIN.
from the article:
“Another result of this study, reports Anthony Watts at WattsUpWithThat.com, is that emissions from deforestation, caused in large part by the clearing of forest land to grow allegedly planet-saving biofuels, may have been grossly overestimated. This finding agrees with results published in November in the journal Nature Geoscience by a team led by Guido van der Werf from VU University in Amsterdam. It reanalyzed deforestation data and concluded that resulting emissions have been overestimated by a factor of two.
We have tried to help document this growing disparity between observable data and apocalyptic computer models that cannot even predict the past. This post-Climate-gate study provides another nail in the coffin of cap-and-trade and shows why the Environmental Protection Agency should not be allowed to destroy the U.S. economy by absurdly regulating carbon dioxide, the basis for all life on earth, as a pollutant”
Yes! Everyone plant a RAT Politician!
If anybody is familiar with oolitic limestone and the concept of equilibrium, they would know how false all this CO2 green house gas BS is BS.
My 10 trees and lilac bush from the Arbor Day Foundation are coming as soon as the snow melts.
That’s been what I’ve been confused about all this time. If there’s too much C02, plant more trees - the grasses, trees, philodendrons, etc all live on CO2. They absorb it, use it, and convert it to Oxygen for us mammals to breathe in. That’s the ECOSYSTEM that God designed.
Of course, dollars to donuts the AGW people don’t believe in God, so the ECOSYSTEM doesn’t work that way for them, and they say we need to just get rid of people. (Thus Planned Parenthood and the millions of abortions world wide).
Does it really matter? ALL carbon on the earth is here. Any that is ‘locked up’ in oil, trees, natural gas, biomass, etc was once part of the atmosphere and its cycles. We can put no carbon back into the atmosphere that wasn;t once there to begin with at some point.
Carbon in the atmosphere is self regulating in a band that has and will vary over time, depending on so many othe rvariables, that ‘control’ is just a vapor of an idea, much less a possibility. So, if one is concerned about ‘too much CO2” in the air, I would ask, “What is the ‘normal’ concentration for our planet, being as it has varied from highs and lows. What is good? What is bad? Why? And most important, WHAT CAN WE EVEN DO ABOUT IT? It’s like peeing in Lake Superior and worrying that you ‘warmed it up’.
"Sure, it works in practice, but does it work in theory?"
i think we should publish all the names of the Global Warming fraud on FR with their emails and all of us should send them a copy of the RICO act and then to the ag in their state.....
Trees are not permanent carbon storage. They rot. Frankly, perennial grasses put more carbon into the soil, but then we'd need those nasty cattle and sheep to help us out with that one.
The only really significant long-term carbon storage on the planet is in the skeletal calcium carbonate of algae-consuming flagellates, foraminifera in particular, aka "limestone."
The basic carbon sequestration reaction, and essential to most life on Earth.
More CO2 could contribute to more phytoplankton, which is the bottom of the food chain, and make the oceans a healthier happier place for bigger critters who dine at some link in the chain.
It is all interconnected, but those interconnections guarantee that the system is self-regulating.
A wonderful design, really.
Are there any believers in AGW left on FR?
Yep I learned that in earth science back in the early 70’s in middle school.
No one really is, they are just throwing crap back in the faces of globalwarmers who cite unusually warm weather as proof of global warming. We have seen that countless times. Even better though, is the video of such a citation, and recent video of the same people citing unusually cold weather as proof of global warming.
They are showing themselves to be completely ridiculous.
It's a little like the left’s eternal quest for Utopia and fairness. Since it is impossible, they eternally have things to say in a campaign.
It is humorous when the Warmers declare the snow and cold as caused by Global Warming.
I wish someone would ask them why they went out of their way to illegally hide these data if it made their case.
I am interested in the work of Dr. Henry Svenmark. There is a 6-part YouTube copy of a documentary of his work called "The Cloud Mystery" which is an alternative and understandable theory for the warming and cooling of the earth, based on cosmic rays.
There is also a book discussing his theory, called The Chilling Stars.
CO2 isn't involved at all.
