In other words, not far from zero.
CO2 is very nearly 0% of the atmosphere
“Deniers” need to start attacking the fairy tale more aggressively, at the roots.
By Ray Kraft
How can a trivial 1 part per 10,000 increase in a trace gas (from 0.03% to 0.04%) cause any detectable, distinguishable, change in the climate? It makes no sense.
The world has fallen for the classical sophomoric fallacy that correlation = causation.
And then it’s invented all kinds of computerized climate change models to prove it. Continue reading »
And CO2 levels were higher than today throughout almost all of history.
When you look at the above chart, you will see almost no correlation between atmospheric CO2 levels and temperature.
“The Late Carboniferous to Early Permian (315 mya — 270 mya) is the only time period in the last 600 million years when both atmospheric CO2 and temperatures were as low as they are today (Quaternary Period).
“Compared to former geologic times, our present atmosphere, like the Late Carboniferous atmosphere, is CO2- impoverished!” Continue reading »
Atmospheric CO2 levels have been declining for the last 500 million years, since the beginning of the Cambrian Period.
“By 250 Mya the planet had buried most of the free atmospheric carbon and the atmosphere looked much as it does today,” says long-time reader Duster.
“Then came the Permian extinction. Atmospheric carbon recovered over the next 100 million years reaching about half of the early Phanerozoic level before resuming its downward trend to the present.
“There is literally no significant correlation of temperature and CO2 over the Phanerozoic. Continue reading »

Scientist Piers Corbyn doesn’t mince words when explaining what all that hot air about global warming and man-made climate change is about. “Follow the money,” he says.
Corbyn is the brother of the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn and a scientist and long-term weather forecaster. He thinks we are all getting too hot under the collar about the issue, and he explains why in a three-minute clip.
While world leaders and corporate representatives meet in Paris during the COP21 with the intention of passing a new set of mandatory regulations which signatory members will have to abide by, Corbyn explains that not one single independent study shows that human activity is the sole or the strongest cause of global warming.

An international team of scientists have stunned attendees at the UN’s climate change conference in Paris recently by debunking claims that global warming is man-made.
The scientists say that while the science refutes the UN’s claim that man-made carbon emissions are to blame for global warming, they claim that the UN is pressing ahead with its sinister ‘climate regime’ agenda, which includes: destroying industrial civilization, propping up kleptocrats with Western tax funds, and seizing control of the global economy under the guise of regulating the immensely beneficial “gas of life,” also known as carbon dioxide.
– In Paris, Scientists Debunk UN “Climate” Hysteria (The New American):
PARIS — Amid United Nations efforts to shackle humanity to a UN “climate regime” at the COP21 global-warming summit, an international team of scientists and experts from various fields debunked the hysteria at a separate conference in Paris for realists. Essentially, the prestigious scientists said, there is no man-made global-warming crisis. The UN’s “climate” efforts, meanwhile, have a much more sinister agenda: Destroying industrial civilization, propping up kleptocrats with Western tax funds, and seizing control of the global economy under the guise of regulating the immensely beneficial “gas of life,” also known as carbon dioxide. The top U.S. senator on the Environment Committee also offered a message of hope to climate realists, saying the “climate charade” by the UN and the Obama administration was dead on arrival.

Global warming scam imploding . . .
The following graphs are not from a single ground station, they are from a satellite relay station in Puerto Casado, where satellites relayed composite global data back to Earth (for the later portion of the graphs). The left of the graph has the average global temperature in degrees celsius.
This is what Al Dork tried to push:

Both graphs quoted the same data. However, the top graph is a lie, which intentionally misrepresented the data. You were not delusional. It really has been cold.

“The Rothschilds AGAIN…..”
Dr. David M.W. Evans consulted full time for the Australian Greenhouse Office (now the Department of Climate Change) from 1999 to 2005, and part time 2008 to 2010, modeling Australia’s carbon in plants, debris, mulch, soils, and forestry and agricultural products. Evans is a mathematician and engineer, with six university degrees including a PhD from Stanford University in electrical engineering. The area of human endeavor with the most experience and sophistication in dealing with feedbacks and analyzing complex systems is electrical engineering, and the most crucial and disputed aspects of understanding the climate system are the feedbacks. The evidence supporting the idea that CO2 emissions were the main cause of global warming reversed itself from 1998 to 2006, causing Evans to move from being a warmist to a skeptic.

– Warnings about ocean acidification are completely misleading – and deliberately so (Ice Age Now, Aug 09, 2014):
“No honest chemist would claim the dissolving of the entire atmospheric mass of CO2 at once would make much difference to the pH of the oceans.”– Rosco Mac
Warnings about ocean acidification are completely misleading – and deliberately so
By Rosco Mac
Firstly, carbon dioxide in water is a very weak acid, whilst the ocean is a very stable buffer with a pH averaging around 8. The concentration of enough CO2 to significantly reduce that pH will not come from the atmosphere – there isn’t enough CO2 in the atmosphere to make much difference.
The mass of the oceans is 268 times the mass of the atmosphere
I can say this with confidence because the mass of the oceans is 268 times the mass of the atmosphere, and CO2 is currently only 0.04% of that.
No honest chemist would claim the dissolving of the entire atmospheric mass of CO2 at once would make much difference to the pH of the oceans.
Secondly, it is well known that an increase in temperature will reduce the solubility of CO2 in water. (The oceans are known as a carbon sink. When they’re cold, they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. When they warm, they release CO2 into the atmosphere. ed)
Warm up a carbonated drink and see what happens
Warm water naturally contains less CO2 than cold water. Warm up a carbonated drink and see what happens – the CO2 comes out of solution.
The oceans are outgassing CO2 due to the slight warming trend observed. The cause of this trend IS NOT known !
I find alarmists stunningly contradictory and amusing.
They point out the slight increasing trend in temperatures as alarming !
They point out the side effect of this slight increasing trend in temperatures – rising sea levels – as alarming !
Then they claim man’s CO2 emissions will increase ocean acidification as alarming.
But you simply cannot have it both ways – that is an “Inconvenient Truth” !!
Either the oceans are getting warmer and the CO2 concentration in seawater is decreasing – which means that ocean acidification by manmade CO2 from the atmosphere is complete BS !!
– or –
The manmade CO2 from the atmosphere IS dissolving in cooler oceans causing ocean acidification – which means that warming oceans and the associated sea level rises are BS !!
Take your pick – REAL SCIENCE says you can’t have both.
– The idea that man controls CO2 is “delusional nonsense,” says astrophysicist (Ice Age Now, Aug 6, 2014):
Video – “Satellite data shows clearly that for the last ten years temperatures have been falling,” says Piers Corbyn.
Astrophysicist Piers Corbyn on “The Myth of Man-Made Global Warming”
Piers Corbyn has received international acclaim for the accuracy of his long-range climate forecasts. Although we hear daily of a scientific consensus to the contrary, what does Piers make of mankind’s alleged role in affecting the climate on Earth?
Piers presented at the recent Electric Universe conference in Albuquerque New Mexico, which featured investigators from wide ranging disciplines who had come to a common conclusion. Namely, that the key to understanding so-called climate change is the electromagnetic connection between Earth and the Sun.
Here are some of the highlights of his talk.
“Carbon dioxide does not drive climate,” says Piers. “Rather, temperature changes in the oceans, in the long run, drive carbon dioxide levels.”
“There is no actual evidence for the CO2 theory. Termites emit ten times more CO2 than man. The idea that termites, or cows, or whatever you have, are going to hold still while man does his thing is completely absurd. The idea that man controls CO2 is actually delusional nonsense.”
“Climate has changed for millions of years. The only thing that’s different now is that man is claiming he’s doing it.”
What drives our climate? asks Piers. “Solar activity.”
When you’ve got periods of low solar activity, like now, two things happen. One thing is that the jet stream on average goes farther south, and the other is that it swings more wildly north to south. And that means we get much bigger extremes in temperature.
Central to Piers predictions is the recognition that the sun and earth are connected electromagnetically.
– Apollo Astronaut: Climate Alarmism Is the ‘Biggest Fraud in the Field of Science’ (CNS News, July 2, 2014):
Climate alarmism is “the biggest fraud in the field of science” and the 97% consensus claim is nonsensical, Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham tells MRCTV in a preview of his presentation at the upcoming Heartland Institute climate conference, July 7-9.
“Since about 2000, I looked farther and farther into it,” Col. Cunningham (USMC, Ret.) tells MRCTV in an exclusive interview. “I found that not one of the claims that the alarmists were making out there had any bearings, whatsoever. And, so, it was kind of a no-brainer to come to the conclusion.”
Cunningham rejects the notion of man-made climate, not only as fact – but also as even qualifying as an actual “theory”:
“In the media, it was being called a theory. Obviously, they didn’t know what it means to be a theory.”
“If we go back to the warmist hypothesis – not a theory, but, a hypothesis – they’ve been saying from the very beginning that carbon dioxide levels are abnormally high, that higher levels of carbon dioxide are bad for humans, and they thought warmer temperatures are bad for our world, and they thought we were able to override natural forces to control the earth’s temperature. So, as I’ve looked into those, that’s the problem that I’ve found, because I didn’t find any of those to be correct – and, they certainly were not a theory, it was just their guess at what they wanted to see in the data they were looking at.”
Cunningham urges Americans to look at the data and decide for themselves, instead of taking anyone else’s word for it: Continue reading »
– The IPCC’s Latest Report Deliberately Excludes And Misrepresents Important Climate Science (Forbes, March 31, 2014):
This week, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is releasing its latest report, the “Working Group II Contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report.” Like its past reports, this one predicts apocalyptic consequences if mankind fails to give the UN the power to tax and regulate fossil fuels and subsidize and mandate the use of alternative fuels. But happily, an international group of scientists I have been privileged to work with has conducted an independent review of IPCC’s past and new reports, along with the climate science they deliberately exclude or misrepresent.
– Global warming debunked: NASA report verifies carbon dioxide actually cools atmosphere (Natural News, Aug 22, 2013):
Practically everything you have been told by the mainstream scientific community and the media about the alleged detriments of greenhouse gases, and particularly carbon dioxide, appears to be false, according to new data compiled by NASA’s Langley Research Center. As it turns out, all those atmospheric greenhouse gases that Al Gore and all the other global warming hoaxers have long claimed are overheating and destroying our planet are actually cooling it, based on the latest evidence.
As reported by Principia Scientific International (PSI), Martin Mlynczak and his colleagues over at NASA tracked infrared emissions from the earth’s upper atmosphere during and following a recent solar storm that took place between March 8-10. What they found was that the vast majority of energy released from the sun during this immense coronal mass ejection (CME) was reflected back up into space rather than deposited into earth’s lower atmosphere.
The result was an overall cooling effect that completely contradicts claims made by NASA’s own climatology division that greenhouse gases are a cause of global warming. As illustrated by data collected using Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry (SABER), both carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), which are abundant in the earth’s upper atmosphere, greenhouse gases reflect heating energy rather than absorb it.
“Carbon dioxide and nitric oxide are natural thermostats,” says James Russell from Hampton University, who was one of the lead investigators for the groundbreaking SABER study. “When the upper atmosphere (or ‘thermosphere’) heats up, these molecules try as hard as they can to shed that heat back into space.”
Almost all ‘heating’ radiation generated by sun is blocked from entering lower atmosphere by CO2
– Solar Cycle 24 Freezes Out Al Gore (Veterans Today, July 15, 2013):
Al Gore promotes Global Warming because it is a money making scam, these past winters are freezing out Global Warming as a viable theory. Al Gore is now frozen in time as the village idiot who lectured us about carbon emissions and was stopped by the cold reality of a cooling earth. So what was Anthropocentric Global Warming (AGW) all about anyways?
Global Warming was a Marketing Ploy
The Global Warming theory was never really a theory, it was a marketing effort on part of the “globalists” to remake the world in their image of taxing ever more, you breath so therefore you are taxed. The church invented guilt for the same reason. Al Gore was their errand boy, CO2 was never a threat because it is a trace gas, and man made CO2 only a small 3% of the total. Water vapor is 95% of the global warming effect, and is hardly ever mentioned.
Global Warming by increasing anthropocentric Carbon Dioxide isn’t true in the real world, yet in DC tinsel town (a special kind of la la land) where an endless celebration of spending someone else’s money has created its own reality. Washington is a giddy simulacrum of make believe and laws because we can, and anything we say goes because we are the Gods on the Potomac. The AGW has-been theory is still going like the pink Energizer bunny even after full exposure as a boldfaced hoax.
Does man made CO2 drive warming? No. It does absolutely nothing. One chart is all you need, CO2 is a trace gas in the atmosphere and the human caused portion of total greenhouse gases is only 0.117% of the total, thus man made CO2 has negligible effect on earth climate. Pay no attention to the media whores and their carbon scare tactics, ANTHROPOCENTRIC CO2 DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Continue reading »
– Obama’s Climate Change Speech: Closed to the Public, Open to Activists (National Journal, June 25, 2013):
President Obama’s big climate speech on Tuesday is closed to the public — depending on your definition of public.
Several special-interest representatives were invited to the closed-door speech, including Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club; Gene Karpinski, president of the League of Conservation Voters; Christine McEntee, executive director of the American Geophysical Union; and Michael Bradley, executive director of the Clean Energy Group, a consortium of clean-burning utilities.
In response to a question about the speech being closed to the public, a senior White House official said Obama “will deliver remarks before several hundred stakeholders active in leading the efforts to address climate change by reducing carbon pollution, including business leaders, environmental organizations, faith leaders, scientists, and students.”
Global warming is a scam. (Links are down below.)
Real scientists predict a GLOBAL COOLING period (from 50 to up to 250 years).
The elitists know that the world is cooling and here is the Bilderberg group’s discussion agenda from 2010:

“The 58th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Sitges, Spain 3 – 6 June 2010. The Conference will deal mainly with Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations.”
Yep, that’s right. Global Cooling.

NASA – CO2 is a Global Coolant
… by Bob Nichols
[Editors Note: Armand Hammer of Occidental Petroleum (Hammer’s wikipedia has remained cleaned of his espionage history, despite it’s being out over a decade now. You can guess why) was the financial and political mentor for both Senator Gores. So they hold the honor of having a top Soviet spy as a patron. Hammer’s much advertised early Soviet business ventures (all of which lost money) were a cover for his espionage venture.
This was finally revealed when Prof. Harvey Klehr of Emory University here in Atlanta in his book, Venona, Decoding Soviet Espionage in America. The proof came from the Soviet archives when Yeltsin had them open for a few years. I was fortunate to spend an afternoon with him around ten years ago shooting two one hour Jim Dean Journals, one of them on Venona…and hoping to get this up on the Net some day… Jim W. Dean]
(San Francisco) The United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) lowers the Boom on Al Gore’s Big Lie that the humble, beneficial gas – CO2 – causes global warming. NASA states absolutely that Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a Global Coolant and massively cools the Earth.
You can bet that the NASA scientists designed, built, launched and placed in Earth orbit the satellite machinery to prove it, too.
So, there we have it. In addition, the Earth has not gotten any warmer for 17 years. NASA has finally pulled the plug on Gore’s Big Lie and ended the gigantic, world wide charade on CO2.
This “discovery” about CO2 is nothing new, it’s well known by scientists not employed by the Gore-istas. The Gore-istas probably know it, too; but the money was just too good to pass up. Besides, you don’t have to do anything except sit around, make up wild stories and tell lies. Great “job” if you like that sort of thing.
Why did Gore do it?
– Al Gore backlash: Why environmentalists are celebrating rising CO2 levels (Natural News, June 2, 2013):
Thank goodness carbon dioxide levels are finally rising ever so slightly in our atmosphere, bringing much-needed carbon dioxide to the plants and forests of the world which have been starving for CO2. The lack of CO2 in the atmosphere is one of the most devastating limiting factors for plant growth and reforestation of the planet, and at just 400ppm — that’s just 400 micrograms per kilogram — carbon dioxide is so low that Earth’s plant life can barely breathe.
