All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

“Climate is and always has been variable. The only constant about climate is change; it changes continually.” ~Professor Tim Patterson

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks
It is a tragedy that there are a generation of children who have been forced fed false science; who have been taught that carbon (dioxide) is a pollutant.

So, in this post we are going to dispel some carbon dioxide mis-education.

Is atmospheric CO2 causing runaway warming?

This century atmospheric CO2 has risen from 369.14 in January 2000 to 398.72 in March 2014.
In this time, as the (UN)Skeptical Pseudo-Science trend calculator shows (fig below), there has been no significant change in global temperature.
So atmospheric CO2 has risen by 8% whilst temperatures have fallen very slightly. With this in mind, why do we get statements like this:
Global Warming is mainly the result of CO2 levels rising in the Earth's atmosphere. Both atmospheric CO2 and climate change are accelerating. Climate Scientists say that we have years, not decades, to stabilize CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
The source of this incorrect alarmist statement is the site CO2 Now. (Also the source for the above graph of CO2.) But CO2 Now is not alone in pushing a false scare re (peer-reviewed) innocent CO2.

CO2 Greening the Planet

CO2 is plant food. We know that the increase in CO2 is greening the planet. This has been reported in peer reviewed journals Biogeosciences; Remote Sensing 5; the American Geophysical Union; Geophysical Research Letters and we also learn that Too Little Carbon Dioxide will destroy the Earth.

In a recent discussion, a mis-educated young person asked:
How can CO2 be greening the planet when there are droughts all around the world?
Well, there are two flaws in this questions.

1. The IPCC has ruled out CO2 induced climate change causing extreme weather.

2. Also More CO2 Means Less Water Stress for Plants
Another major benefit of atmospheric CO2 enrichment is that plants exposed to elevated levels of atmospheric CO2 generally do not open their leaf stomatal pores - through which they take in carbon dioxide and give off water vapor - as wide as they do at lower CO2 concentrations. In addition, they tend to produce less of these pores per unit area of leaf surface at higher levels of atmospheric CO2. Both of these changes tend to reduce most plants' rates of water loss by transpiration; and the amount of carbon they gain per unit of water lost - or water-use efficiency - therefore typically rises, greatly increasing their ability to withstand drought.
Logarithmic Effect of CO2

Even if you agree that adding CO2 to the atmosphere causes (some) warming, scientific studies tell us that the effect of CO2 is logarithmic and so any future CO2 additions will have virtually no heating effect:

From Taxing Air: (P132)
Because it is a greenhouse gas, more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, other things being equal, does cause warming.
But other things are far from equal, two important considerations being, first, that the extra warming diminishes in magnitude rapidly (logarithmically) as carbon dioxide increases....
Saturated Greenhouse Effect.

Physicist Dr Ferenc Miskolczi's peer reviewed paper theorises that a saturated greenhouse effect exists and further additions of greenhouses gasses will not cause more warming. This has been supported by another paper by Isaac and Wijngaarden published in the Journal of Climate. (Hockeyshtick)

No Support for the Falsified AGW Hypothesis.

Science has never shown any evidence, any peer reviewed paper, not even a hint of support for the AGW hoax. As Einstein said:
“No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.”
Where does that leave us? CO2 is good for you and innocent of all charges.

Do you want to save the planet? Fire up the SUV this holiday weekend and go for a pleasure ride; burn some more coal in your barbecue grill; crank up the house’s AC; and, generally, aspire to a Paul Bunyan-size carbon footprint. Because according to astrobiologist Jack O’Malley-James speaking at the National Astronomy meeting at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, life on Earth will suffer a carbon-dioxide-related extinction. But contrary to popular-culture belief, the problem will be too little of the naturally occurring gas.

It probably won’t ruin any of your plans, as this fate awaits us nearly billion years down the geological road, but the process by which life may end is rather simple. The Daily Mail reports:
[A]s the Sun ages and grows hotter, greater evaporation and chemical reactions with rainwater will take away more and more carbon dioxide.

In less than a billion years, its levels will be too low for photosynthesising plants to survive, say scientists. When that happens, life as we know it on Earth will cease to exist.

With the loss of plants, herbivorous animals will also die out, as well as the carnivores that prey on them.
At this point microbes will rule the Earth, though their days in the sun — pun intended — will likewise end. As the sun grows even hotter, the oceans will evaporate, making the planet inhospitable to all but the sturdiest micro-organisms. “Any remaining life will be restricted to pockets of liquid water, perhaps at cooler, higher altitudes or in caves underground,” says O’Malley-James.

While it’s probably hard to forecast weather for 1,000,002,013 A.D., many experts have pointed out that CO2 needs to hire a PR team, misunderstood and maligned as it is by global-warming proponents. For instance, Mike Adams of Natural News asks, “If CO2 is so bad for the planet, why do greenhouses pay to produce it?” He then offers the answer:
CO2 is a plant NUTRIENT.

Nope, it's not a pollutant that threatens human civilization as has been ridiculously claimed by global warming doomsday pushers. CO2 actually increases plant yields, accelerates "re-greening" and improves reforestation of the planet. [Emphasis in original.]
In fact, Adams doesn’t mince words, stating:
The more you really examine the scientific truth about carbon dioxide rather than the politically-charged "hate speech" against Mother Nature being spewed by people like Al Gore, the more you realize CO2 is a crucial nutrient for the Earth's environment and ecosystem. In fact, the vast majority of all the CO2 released into the atmosphere is produced by Mother Nature via animals in the ocean.
Note here that carbon dioxide is to plants what oxygen is to man. People have reduced stamina and more trouble breathing at higher altitudes because there’s less oxygen in the air; likewise, decreased CO2 inhibits plant photosynthesis, which is why botanists pump the gas into their greenhouses. This is also one reason the age of the dinosaurs was marked by lush foliage blanketing the Earth: Carbon dioxide levels were 5 to 10 times those of today.

But while CO2’s affect on flora is well established, its influence on temperature is a different matter. In fact, some scientists believe increased carbon dioxide may actually cool the atmosphere. Writes Principia Scientific International:
A recent NASA report throws the space agency into conflict with its climatologists after new NASA measurements prove that carbon dioxide acts as a coolant in Earth's atmosphere.

NASA's Langley Research Center has collated data proving that “greenhouse gases” actually block up to 95 percent of harmful solar rays from reaching our planet, thus reducing the heating impact of the sun. The data was collected by Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry, (or SABER). SABER monitors infrared emissions from Earth’s upper atmosphere, in particular from carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), two substances thought to be playing a key role in the energy balance of air above our planet’s surface.
Whatever the effect of CO2 on climate, many experts also point out that the computer forecasting models predicting a steadily warming planet are belied by actual temperature records. Wrote the Daily Mail last year:
The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.

The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.

This means that the "plateau" or "pause" in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.
So if the critics of Anthropogenic Global Warming theory are correct, the only man-made aspect of the matter is the data itself. Nonetheless, while it’s entirely possible the climate won’t be heating up anytime soon, the rhetoric surrounding it most surely will.


I'd like to share a comment made by Patty Reynolds:
One did not have to subscribe to the "conspiracy" that conceived the carbon pollution/taxation to in order to see that CO2 is a nutrient, not a pollutant, necessary to the lives of the plants that sustain ALL life on earth.

Unless our elected officials have been either blackmailed, corrupted by the communist inspired public education system of the last 65 + years, and/or just born stupid and greedy: WHY HAVE THEY GOTTEN AWAY WITH THE "ONE WORLD ORDER" PLAN WHICH DEVISED THIS ASININE WAR ON CARBON DIOXIDE/ SAVE THE "ENVIRONMENT"/LAND WHILE U.N. IMPOSED PROPERTY GRABS ARE STEALING COUNTRIES VIA AGENDA 21/ IMPERIAL WARS WORLDWIDE?

It is corruption on a grand scale, and destroying our country wholesale under false pretenses, while destroying the the basis of our constitutional law in the process, which is their apparent target, which has allowed this military industrial complex, fueled by the Banksters to rule the world.
