Anti-Science Warmists Believe That Earth Is 5,000 Years Old

Warming gas levels hit ‘troubling milestone’

Before the Industrial Age, levels were around 275 parts per million.

Warming gas levels hit ‘troubling milestone’

Life evolved on Earth with CO2 levels much higher than at present. The graph below shows in the red circle the tiny change which has occurred over the last 100 years.

It is interesting how climate alarmists share the same distorted view of history as young earth creationists. Just another group of religious fanatics.

    I would like to include the graph above in a presentation.
    To whom may I give credit for preparing it?
    Thanks in advance for a reply

    One wonder’s, Steve, why so-called reporters continue to make idots of themselves. I attribute it to laziness and a desperate desire to keep one’s job. After all, they all have to make a house payment, put food the table, and save for their children’s education. Human nature.

    I believe that integrity is not for sale. It’s one thing no one can give you, or take away.

    Having mentioned what is obvious to you and others who actually read and research:

    A few facts about evil man-made CO2, the source in the minds of the Hansens,Jones, Briffas and Trenberths of the world of runaway global warming (now “climate change”). And these facts are beyond dispute:

    From Joe D’Aleo, longtime meteorologist and co-founder othe Weather Channel:

    “Carbon dioxide is 0.000383 of our atmosphere by volume (0.038 percent),” said meteorologist Joseph D’Alea, the first director of meteorology at The Weather Channel and former chief of the American Meteorological Society’s Committee on Weather Analysis and Forecast.

    From Robert Wood:

    A century ago, in 1909, physicist R.W. Wood disproved the thesis that greenhouses stayed warm by trapping IR. Woods set up test greenhouses using glass which reflects IR, and sheets of rock salt which does not. Woods demonstrated that greenhouses get warm by trapping warm air, not by trapping IR. The popularly believed theory about trapped IR is not how a greenhouse works. Sometimes an actual experiment is better than a century of myth. Wood’s experiment was originally published in the Philosophical magazine , 1909, vol 17, p319-320. Advocates of “Global Warming” now sometimes claim that the so-called “greenhouse effect” of the whole world is “different” from an actual greenhouse. There has been no experimental or physical evidence to support that claim, and in fact experimental evidence is all on the other side. There is no “greenhouse effect” that works by reflecting heat energy.

    From Australian climatolgist Ian Plimer:
    I
    If one imagines a length of the Earth’s atmosphere one kilometre long, 780 metres of this are made up of nitrogen, 210 are oxygen and 10 metres are water vapour (the largest greenhouse gas). Just 0.38 of a metre is carbon dioxide, to which human emissions contribute one millimetre.”

    From Dr. William M. Gray, CSU’s professor emeritus of atmospheric physics::

    ” It is impossible for us skeptics to believe that the doubling of CO2 which causes a global average infrared (IR) radiation blockage to space ~3.7 Wm-2 for doubling of CO2 can be very much of a climate altering feature. Especially when we contrast this 3.7 Wm-2 IR blockage (from a doubling of CO2) with the much larger and continuous 342 Wm-2 average short-wave radiation impinging on the earth and the near balancing concomitant 342 Wm-2 net long-wave and solar (albedo) energy going back to space.

    And about one of the Warmists’ favorite topic:

    Since increased C02 is thought to increase plant biomass, and higher temperatures also are conducive to plant growth, it is entirely possible that the decreasing C13/C12 ratio is the result of increased decay of photosynthesizing organisms, which is secondary to increased productivity.”

    This remark comes from someone who has done his due diligence. It caught my attention:

    I am suspicious of arguments which boil down to ‘we’ve looked at everything else so it must be…’ What they are really saying is ‘it must be if we haven’t forgotten something or something’s not yet been measured. The CO2 budget always looks like that to me — the C3/C4 versatility wasn’t even known when the Suess effect was confidently put forward as the great proof of anthropogenic CO2 rise.

  3. kirkmyers says:

    I messed up on Joe D’Aleo’s comment. Here it is in full:

    “Only 2.75 percent of atmospheric CO2 is anthropogenic in origin. The amount we emit is said to be up from 1 percent a decade ago. Despite the increase in emissions, the rate of change of atmospheric carbon dioxide at Mauna Loa remains the same as the long term average (plus 0.45 percent per year),” he said. “We are responsible for just 0.001 percent of this atmosphere. If the atmosphere was a 100-story building, our anthropogenic CO2 contribution today would be equivalent to the linoleum on the first floor.”

  4. kirkmyers says:

    The AP, New York Time and Guardian writers are lazy and would rather regurgitate nonsense: But as this scientist notes:

    As Navy meteorologist, Dr. Martin Hertzberg laments, “prior to the 1970′s, no mainstream science journals considered the “greenhouse effect,” let alone the theory that human emissions of CO2 add any influence on the weather.” Indeed, it can be shown that back in 1967, Hansen claimed (when he was a fringe theorist) that if there was a GHE it was likely induced by dust (aerosol particulates).

  5. kirkmyers says:

    As you mentioned in one of your prevous posts, Steve:

    “The Carboniferous Period and the Ordovician Period were the only geological periods during the Paleozoic Era when global temperatures were as low as they are today. To the consternation of global warming proponents, the Late Ordovician Period was also an Ice Age while at the same time CO2 concentrations then were nearly 12 times higher than today– 4400 ppm. According to greenhouse theory, Earth should have been exceedingly hot. Instead, global temperatures were no warmer than today. Clearly, other factors besides atmospheric carbon influence earth temperatures and global warming.”

  6. kirkmyers says:

    Three good quotes, Steve. One is yours:

    Yogi Berra
    “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”

    Steve Goddard
    “Once again we see that global warming alarmism is rooted in nothing more than superstition and ignorance.”

    Author unknown
    “It’s the sun, not the SUV.”

  7. DC Andy says:

    Recently CNN stated that the worst tornado of all time took place near Oklahoma City in 1999. It killed 36. That certainly means the world must have begun after 1925, when ancient legend says a tornado killed almost 700.

  8. kirkmyers says:

    It was time to stop reading when Mr. Science Borenstein called CO2 a “pollutant”? Does AP realize how stupid he makes the wire service look? Isn’t there a fact-checker at AP? Or has AP pink-slipped the last person in the bureau who knows anything about science?

    These are Borenstein’s first few laughable paragraphs:

    “The world’s air has reached what scientists call a troubling new milestone for carbon dioxide, the main global warming pollutant.

    “Monitoring stations across the Arctic this spring are measuring more than 400 parts per million of the heat-trapping gas in the atmosphere. The number isn’t quite a surprise, because it’s been rising at an accelerating pace. Years ago, it passed the 350 ppm mark that many scientists say is the highest safe level for carbon dioxide. It now stands globally at 395.”

    Steve Goddard’s graph above (ice core data) puts the lie to Borenstein’s kindergarten science. We are currently living suffering through a CO2 depleted period. If we could talk to the plants, they’d give us an earful. Exhale for the good of the plants and the next wheat harvest.

    Note: CO2 doesn’t “trap gas.”

  9. oh good Lord, can we have some italics closed?

  10. kirkmyers says:

    Addendum to above post: long-wave infrared is not a gas. CO2 is a gas. CO2 constitutes 0.04 percent of the atmosphere. The human-caused portion of that life-giving gas is a humongous 0.001 percent of the atmosphere.

    There is no scientific evidence to support the hypothesis that 0.001 percent (or even 0.005 percent) of the atmosphere, a CO2 level that consititutes an overwhelming 0.117 percent of the so-called greenhouse effect, is going to trigger any measurable or discernable global warming.
