Skip to comments.The Man-made CO2 Global Warming Fraud! (Spirited and technical rejection of AGW)
Posted on 09/06/2012 7:50:11 AM PDT by Titus-Maximus
Here is an excerpt1 from a paper written by a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) meteorologist; "Climate models used for estimating effects of increases in greenhouse gases show substantial increases in water vapor as the globe warms and this increased moisture would further increase the warming." However, this meteorologist along with the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) crowd got it backwards about water vapor and CO2 -- they cool the earth like all other gases in our atmosphere!
Although moisture in the atmosphere does increase with warming, this is because the higher temperature causes more water to evaporate. With every pound of water evaporated 1,000 Btu is absorbed and that causes cooling. Further, increased water in the atmosphere causes further cooling (not warming) by reflecting more of the radiant energy from the Sun that is hitting the water vapor molecules back to outer space.
Al Gore presented the climate change fraud as well in his "Inconvenient Truth", actually a "Convenient Lie" presentation of the Vostok Ice Core data, see below.
Gore's "Inconvenient Truth" Documentary -- Cause and Effect Reversed
In this documentary, Al Gore fudged the Vostok Ice core temperature and CO2 line graphs so it would show a CO2 spike coming first in time, but the real graph showed just the opposite. See the data in a shorter time frame (240,000 Years Before Present rather than 420,000 years as presented by Gore). This makes it easier to see which came first, Figure 1.
The science is feeble yet that have come to these grotesque conclusions which may be totally wrong, oh, and by the way, will cost of trillions in dollars.
Water vapor cools the planet, not heats it! Evaporation in the atmosphere, takes heat out of the atmosphere.
CO2 in the atmosphere, lags the warming temperatures, not precedes it - which Gore infamously obfuscated.
Manmade CO2 is a drop in the ocean of natural CO2, and about 40% of it is absorbed and does not reside in the atmosphere. It is the dandruff on a tick on the tail of an elephant.
The additional CO2 is a growth boon for plants, which themselves lower the atmospheric temperature.
Water vapor, or clouds reflect the sun's radiant energy back into space. There is a natural thermostat at play.
The actual script reads: “The central organizing principle of governments everywhere must be the environment.
(AGW-Al Gore's Words)
Translation-It’s a power grab.
The #1 problem is most people are 2-dimensional thinkers but heap credit upon themselves as above brilliant. Ego is a very destructive mental and societal inertia.
Fantastic weather/climate in the shadow of the California Air Resources Board skyscraper in California. We are currently 87 at 5pm.
