Report Proves Global Warming Folly
Today the report of the Non-Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) document was released. Unless you look really hard for it, you will not find this report, that took years in the making thereof, anywhere. Its release revealed a few facts: If we doubled the concentration of CO2 from where it was in 1750, which might occur by 2050, we can expect to cause somewhere between 1.1 degrees Celsius global warming or 0.3 degrees Celsius global cooling. If we have paid attention, most of the global warming has already occurred. Humans have had minute impact on the climate. Yet trillions of dollars are being squandered around the world by governments under the guise of protecting us from ourselves. How hard is it to get global temperature to change? In the past 420,000 years, temperatures have varied up or down about 1 percent. That is enough for an ice ages at one moment and comfortable warm periods like the present at another. Serious, objective scientists could not imagine that altering 1/3,000 of the atmosphere over the coming century would make a noticeable difference to global temperature. According to satellite records, there has been no global warming at all for 17 years. We all know CO2 is good for trees and plants. The NIPCC report conveys the good effects of CO2 as well as the bad. CO2 is plant food. Without it, trees and plants would die and there would be no life on Earth. To green the planet we need CO2 in the air. Here is a rather alarming summation: The NIPCC report says that with only 0.04 percent CO2 in the atmosphere, plants and trees are starved of it. Plants need more. So, why did the world get warmer in the 20th century? It was the sun. Now that solar activity is declining, the world is no longer getting warmer. In fact, we could be facing global cooling of as much as half a degree Celsius, or 1 degree Fahrenheit, over the next two or three years. With solar activity continuing to decline, it only has to change a little to have a big effect on the climate. Ever wonder why the Farmer’s Almanac is so consistent? They base forecast on the sun’s activity, for one. Another stunning revelation in the NIPCC report is that the “consensus” among climate scientists, that most of the global warming since 1950 was our fault, never existed in the first place. Of the 11,944 papers published and analyzed in learned journals over the 22 year period of 1991-2012, just 41 papers or 0.3 percent of the total and not the 97 percent that is often claimed, agree that the recent warming trend was the fault of humans. But what a wonderful and extremely creative stab at “taxation without representation” by our elected masters it was.
