Recently, scientists at the CO2 monitoring station at Mona Loa Observatory in Hawaii announced that CO2 levels in the earth’s atmosphere have reached 400 parts per million. Pieter Tans of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimates that CO2 levels haven’t been this high in 2 million years.
On the surface, it seems we should all be concerned with this high level reading of CO2 in the atmosphere and rush to do whatever we can to bring the level down, based on their assumption that CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for causing global warming/climate change.
However, nothing could be further from the truth, both from the aspect of the high reading of CO2 as well as the assumption that CO2 is the main gas that causes a greenhouse effect in our atmosphere.
As with all other fantastic claims made by the global warming/climate change crowd, the latest claim of CO2 levels being the highest ever recorded in modern times simply falls apart when actual facts are examined.
First of all, the high level reading of 400 PPM is incorrect in the sense that it’s supposed to represent the levels in the entire atmosphere of the earth. This is because of the location of the CO2 monitoring station itself, being at Mona Loa Observatory. The observatory itself sits essentially on the rim of Mona Loi Volcano, which is an active volcano that erupted in the spring of 1984 and is currently considered active. The main gases released by volcanoes are H2O and CO2. These and other gases are constantly being released, both from the actual crater and from fissures near the crater every day. So what we have here are scientists at Mona Loa Observatory recording drastic rises of atmospheric CO2 but failing to admit why this is. Of course, anyone will record high levels of CO2 when they are looking for it near an active volcano. Thus, the high level reading of CO2 is a false reading.
Interestingly, most CO2 monitoring stations around the world are located on or very near areas that naturally produce CO2 such as volcanoes and fault lines, and near coastal areas where sea mounts are located. So, actual CO2 readings from any of these monitoring stations cannot be trusted as accurate.
Secondly, most scientists at these stations are not climate scientists at all but are highly educated environmentalists, masquerading as climate scientists. This is true of Pieter Tans of NOAA, who isn’t educated in any aspect of meteorology at all, only holding a PhD in experimental physics and a degree in theoretical physics. Since he has no education in any aspect of weather, climate, or overall atmospheric physics, he isn’t qualified to present himself as a climate scientist.
CO2 simply isn’t a greenhouse gas. Most geologists, “except those standing to gain financially and in standing from promoting GW/CC,” will agree that the driving force behind a greenhouse effect is water vapor above all else. Ice cores show an increase in CO2 levels only after a warming period, not before. Thus, increased levels of CO2 are a result of warming periods, not the other way around.
We can use the planet Mars as an example of the fact that CO2 is not a greenhouse gas since scientists estimate the atmosphere of the planet to be nearly 100% CO2. During the summer months in a given area of the planet, the temperature will reach into the 80-degree range. However, after sunset, the temperature will rapidly drop into the single digits. Even given the distance from the sun and its rotation, Mars should be experiencing a runaway greenhouse effect with temperatures well above 100 degrees during the day and not dipping below 90 degrees at night, with hardly any cooling taking place during winter season. Yet, this is not happening. Why? Because CO2 isn’t a greenhouse gas, nearly as much as water vapor.
Here on Earth, this can be seen in comparing desert temperature variations between day and night with those of very humid areas such as Florida. In arid desert areas, the temperature can reach well over 100 degrees during the day; but the overnight low can dip into the 60′s.
In places such as Miami, the daytime high can be 95 degrees; but the overnight low will seldom dip below 80 degrees. This variance in heat loss between these examples is due to humidity. Desert areas usually have humidity levels into the teens while areas such as Florida and the Deep South have humidity levels constantly over 60%. So, if science was serious about the Greenhouse effect on Earth, they would purposely blow oil rigs in most ocean areas to prevent evaporation rather than try and regulate a harmless gas like CO2. The bottom line here is that it isn’t about CO2 being a greenhouse gas at all, as much as it is about getting to regulate it by legislation for the purpose of financial and political gain.
Since global warming cannot be proven in any form of concrete evidence (and only exists in false data and computer manipulated models), it therefore doesn’t exist in the real world–only in the imaginations of those promoting it and in the feeble minds of those who blindly believe it.
We are at the stage where we must demand that those responsible for spreading this false information, for the purpose of scaring people into accepting their sinister plot, be prosecuted to the fullest extent.
Charges of fraud and racketeering first come to mind, aside from the financial scheme associated with GW/CC such as the Wind Energy industry, which simply supplies us with nothing while using more grid electricity than they ever produce, and very expensive solar power that would basically take a lifetime to get back what one initially invests for it.
These and others are snake oil schemes that cost us much more than we can afford. In this recession that is teetering on full blown Depression, we cannot have prices inflated to ridiculous levels on just about everything imaginable for the sake of a blatant lie.
The US is the only country in the world that goes along with destroying their own economy, based on lies and estimates of a dream. China, India, and most other industrial countries will not sacrifice their economy for anything, much less unproven fairy tales. Under the guise of saving the world from a conjured enemy in the form of GW/CC, the US is accepting outrageous unemployment rates, ridiculous inflation, and a previously unacceptable economic depression.
America was a great nation, shining above all others in the world until a few years ago. Now…we are a sorry bunch of individuals sacrificing the one thing that set us above the rest: our industry. Today, we are willing to become a third-world country while we allow the rest of the world’s industrial countries to prosper.
