Empirical evidence does not support the claim that anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions cause global warming and/or climate change.
We suggest that without adequately proven evidence being demonstrated – should it exist in the first place – such a conclusion cannot be adduced from the facts.
Nothing in the data supports the supposition that atmospheric CO2 is a driver of weather or climate, or that human emissions control atmospheric CO2.
Furthermore, CO2 is not a pollutant, but an essential ingredient of the Earth’s ecosystem on which almost all life depends via photosynthesis.
The various stated definitions of the greenhouse effect have been subjected to the rigorous scrutiny and application of the fundamental laws of physics and thermodynamics.
They were found to be unreal, and unless some new definition can be put forward that satisfies and complies with those laws it can only be concluded that the concept of a “greenhouse gas” or a “greenhouse effect” has not been demonstrated and is thus without merit.
The fear-mongering hysteria contained in the proposed draconian measures for “carbon control” being advocated by some “climate scientists”, government agencies, and others concerned with “global warming/climate change” which is being attributed to human emissions of CO2, requires a rational and scientific response.
While the presence of 0.04 % of CO2 in our atmosphere is essential for life in the biosphere, the notion that such a minor constituent of the atmosphere can control the natural forces and motions is absurd. There is not one iota of reliable evidence that it does.
Furthermore, human emission of CO2 is but a trivial fraction of all natural sources and sinks of CO2. The most recent research by Norwegian scientists Humlum et al. in Global and Planetary Change and earlier research by Segalstad show that the recent modest increase in atmospheric CO2 is coming from the Southern Equatorial Ocean and that it has absolutely nothing to do with human emissions.
It is most appropriate that the proof for the absence of any significant human origin for atmospheric CO2 is coming from the brilliant work of Norwegian scientists trying to correct the scientific record.
After all, it was the Norwegian Parliament that made the ghastly mistake of attempting to legitimize the fraudulent Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory by awarding The Nobel Peace Prize to the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC).
Which world do you prefer?
One cannot find a single example of where high humidity has caused a drought or expanded a desert, nor anywhere on Earth that high humidity has degraded the natural environment in any way, has inhibited plant growth, or put animals at risk for starvation, much less threaten them with extinction—things that are currently being asserted by certain self-proclaimed scientific “experts.”
