Why more CO2 is better

Natural climate change occurs continually, on any scale of time:
1 year, 10 years, 100 years, 1,000 years, 10,000 years, or more.

Statements by the UN's own IPCC:  "Climate has always varied on all time-scales."
"The long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible."

CO2 Levels

 

Historic Temperatures

 

Tyranny or Freedom?

Compared to the entire previous history of the Earth, the CO2 levels for the past 40-50 million years have been the lowest ever - dangerously near the starvation-level for plant life.   We should be doing everything we can to increase the CO2 level in the Earth's atmosphere.

 

Compared to the previous 10,000 years, the past 1600 years have been unusually cold. Even including the warming spike about 1000 AD, the overall average is still well below the norm.   The temperature over the last 750 years has been even more abnormally below-average.

 

The entire human-induced climate-change deception has been with the goal of achieving political control over people who now live in freedom.

Get the Big Picture


A thousand years ago, things were much warmer.
The Vikings farmed Greenland for 300 years.   Greenland cannot be farmed now; it is too cold.   The glaciers in Alaska were either greatly reduced compared to today, or perhaps absent entirely.

By five hundred years ago, the weather had gotten much colder.

Glaciers are not a permanent part of the landscape.

Things are warmer now.   Alaskan glaciers are receding, to the alarm of some who are ignorant of natural history.   And yet Antarctica's snow cover and ice sheet have reached their highest levels ever recorded.   That should tell you that the natural wobbles in the Earth's rotation and solar orbit have reduced the solar heating of the southern hemisphere, while increasing the solar heating of the northern hemisphere.

Anything between (and to some extent beyond) those two temperature "extremes", as we observe presently, is statistical, natural variation.   Temperatures are never static, on any scale of time - 1 year, 10 years, 100 years, 1,000 years, 10,000 years, or more.   The world's temperatures, CO2 levels, etc., fluctuate due to various long-term and short-term natural cycles.   As the UN's IPCC states: "Climate has always varied on all time-scales"

The causes are not just solar (the Sun being a variable star), but probably cosmological to some extent as well (though luckily for us, at a minimal level over the last 10,000 years; see this article about a supernova that may have caused a mass-extinction event on Earth about 2.6 million years ago).

The different factors, known and unknown, compound and counter-act each other on a regular basis, far beyond the impact of humanity's activities, and in a complexity that confounds our understanding at present.   In mathematical parlance, the environmental impact of humanity's activities gets lost in the much greater variability of natural activity.


Political Control  —  Political Power

The Weather as a Tool of Political Control

When people whose goal is to have political control over your life are repeatedly caught in lies about the climate data, that data is worthless.

When there are those who plot to steal away the First-Amendment free-speech rights of dissenters, and attempt to use climate change as an excuse of destroying all your rights, their goals should be crystal clear.   They are not interested in removing a danger, but in gaining control over people for their own tyrannical ends.

From page 26 of the 2016 Democratic Party platform (or see the pdf here),
      carte blanche to undermine and attack your freedom of speech:

"... calling on the Department of Justice to investigate alleged corporate fraud on the part of fossil fuel companies who have reportedly misled shareholders and the public on the scientific reality of climate change was also adopted by unanimous consent."

That statement, given the opportunity to be implemented and enforced if the Democrats took power, would translate into endless lawsuits against oil and coal companies, draining their resources and reducing their profits - solely because they voice their dissent in opposition to those in power - in opposition to would-be dictators with no respect for freedom; people who view climate change as nothing more than a excuse for subverting our freedom, and as a gateway to their tyrannical grasp of power.

Implemented into law, it would make this web page illegal.   And as simply as that, your First Amendment rights to free speech would be dead.

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on "global warming" - "the world will end in 12 years".   And of course, you should follow her dictates:   "Should we still have children?"

Note that the founder of Greenpeace lambasted AOC for her silly comments.

If the data was valid, its proponents would not have to lie and cheat and threaten.

To prove a theory as valid requires incontrovertible, inductive and deductive proof.

To prove a theory invalid takes only a single discrepancy.  The claim of human-induced climate-change is full of discrepancies.

Supporting the President's Political Policies and Objectives

Consider all those government "scientists" supposedly supporting human-induced climate-change as a "fact":

If your source of income – be it salary or grants – is provided by the government, your income depends on providing research supporting government policies – i.e., supporting the President's political policies and objectives.  The government does not support research that would contradict or undermine those policies.

Any honest scientists, or any scientists whose interests lie outside those government intentions, will by choice or by being viewed as non-supportive, necessarily seek employment elsewhere – in private universities or businesses.  Those entities unfortunately have more limited budgets, making competition for those jobs much greater.  Scientific research in businesses must necessarily support business profitability; purely scientific research and the need for research in climate science is rarely seen as supportive.

Since most research occurs in universities whose budget is largely paid by government grants, or in government agencies, free scientific inquiry is to a large degree absent.

Human-induced climate change is a political hoax – a lie.

See these two news articles for more about using climate-change as a political tool.

If you fall for the Climate Change Hoax, you give wannabe dictators the justification, invitation, and opening to order you to do what they want you to do.

Undermining your rights – America's Bill of Rights, the Constitution, and entire legal system – is the goal of every attempt to convince you of the validity of human-induced climate change.

Still not seeing it?  Actions speak louder than words.

Changes in the climate are a natural part of our environment; see the graphs below.   The whole issue of human-induced climate-change is junk science.

Climate change is a political issue, with political ramifications - freedom vs. control - and not a scientific issue.

Water vapor – the greenhouse gas with the most impact – has been in a decline since records were kept


 
More CO2 is better
 

Plants require at least 200 ppm (parts per million) of CO2 in the atmosphere to survive.   The current level of 400-410 ppm is not too far above starvation-level for plants.   The periods with the most plant growth had much higher levels of CO2, as shown below.   An increase in the level of CO2 will provide a big increase in agricultural producton, reducing hunger, and in increased plant life generally around the world.

Even the worst of the anticipated levels of CO2 are far below what would be harmful to animals and humans.

More CO2 is better, not worse.

Less CO2  >>  less plants  >>  less food.

More CO2  >>  more plants  >>  more food.

CO2 Levels Through Half a Billion Years

The CO2 levels for the past 50 million years has been lower than at any time in the past 250 million years - since before the dinosaurs walked the earth.

No correlation between CO2 levels and temperature

Look how little solar energy is absorbed by CO2!

Natural Global Cooling

Holocene Temperature Variations – Note that the present temperatures are shown to be below the Climactic Optimum.

The Holocene Period is from 11,650 years ago to the present.

Greenland Tempertures In the Past 10,000 Years – the present temperatures are running well below the average

Temperatures During the Past 4500 Years

Fluctuations in temperatures of this magnitude and duration can only be due to solar fluctuations (again, the Sun is a variable star).   But why does volcanic activity increase during those periods? The Earth does not change significantly - except for the amount of heat it receives from the Sun.   Heating makes any material expand, and cooling makes any material contract.   That contraction while cooling would (1) increase the pressure on the Earth's molten interior, and (2) create cracks on the Earth's surface.   The pressure would tend to force the molten fluid up through those cracks, and through the porous outer crust, causing the volcanos of note.

Here is a very perceptive quote:
Climate Depot's Marc Morano compared the push to quickly ratify UN agreement to the sudden release of U.S. hostages by Iran in 1981 shortly after Republican Ronald Reagan was elected president. "The international climate community is terrified of the prospect of a Trump presidency, and with good reason," said Mr. Morano. "Trump has pledged to do a full 'Clexit' and pull out of the U.N. Paris Agreement, overturn the EPA executive orders on climate and defund" the U.N. expert panel that has strongly pressed the case for man-made global warming.
...
"But the reality is, this treaty is about forcing the U.S. and Europe to redistribute wealth, and it's about enriching the U.N.," he said. "You may as well believe in witchcraft if you actually believe that the U.N. can control the Earth's temperature and manage storminess."


About Those Computer "Models"

Below is a graph of six computer models forecasting the path of Hurricane Matthew, on 7 October, 2016.

It appears as though there is a total lack of consensus on a simple multi-day forecast.

Actually, however, this is a standout example of Ensemble Forecasting.  That process uses multiple models, each run with with multiple sets of input parameters.

This is essentially the making of a number of guesses, in hopes that one will be fairly close.  This is no more than guessing the result of rolling the dice.  If you make enough guesses, one is bound to be right.  The use of Ensemble Forecasting in and of itself implies the total inability to foreast the weather.

In the end, none of the forecasts got it right - not even reasonably close.  The storm went up the coast, joining a cold front sweeping across the U.S. (which is typical), through New Jersey and on up to Maine, Newfoundland, and on across the north Atlantic in the usual manner.

This satellite image loop is from October 6, when Matthew was a hurricane, to October 11, when it had joined a mid-latitude storm sweeping across eastern Canada.

Extrapolating planetary weather over decades is more difficult by many orders of magnitude, which makes any such forecast no more accurate than the roll of the dice.

Long-term Modeling

The UN's IPCC, in its Third Assessment Report (or see the pdf here), published in 2001, agreed that their models lack any reliability, as shown in these quotes.

In fact, the climate modelers do not even attempt to model natural climate change, such as the examples shown here.



From the book, Global Warming Skepticism for Busy People, by Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer:   their "models cannot reproduce natural climate change" and are "based on the assumption that the climate system doesn't change naturally on the time scale of hundreds of years."

Yet it is clearly evident that natural climate change does occur on a constant and ongoing basis.   Temperatures are never static, on any scale of time - 1 year, 10 years, 100 years, 1,000 years, 10,000 years, or more.   As stated by the UN's IPCC: "Climate has always varied on all time-scales".

Dr. Spencer notes, "Climate modelers don't understand the cause of natural climate cycles."   This results in circular logic:   "models that cannot simulate natural climate change, but are programmed to be dominated by human-induced climate change, are used as 'proof' that only humans can cause climate change."   In other words, modelers "point to their models as evidence of what they assumed to begin with."



Climate Change Summary – What Do We Know?

Influences on Climate

Earthly influences on climate

The impact on the climate of the Earth's internal warmth is unknown and cannot be predicted.

The Earth's magnetic poles continually drift, and periodically swap.  The most recent swap was 42,000 years ago, and had a substantial impact on Earth's climate.

The impact of the current drift of the north pole (from north Canada to north Russia) on climate is unknown and cannot be predicted.

The causes of changes in Earth's average temperatures and CO2 levels are unknown and cannot be predicted.

The impact of climate on the severity of hurricanes and the levels of precipitation and cloud cover are unknown and cannot be predicted.

Changes in the Earth's average temperature and CO2 levels cannot be correlated to each other, or to other factors, excepting large volcanic eruptions such as occurred during the Younger Dryas period, about 13,000 - 11,500 years ago.

CO2 levels have been particularly low for the past five million years, and (for plant life) dangerously low during the Ice Ages of the past million years.

There is a direct correlation between CO2 levels, plant growth, and food supply.

Likewise, temperatures have been unusually low for the past four million years.

Temperatures began dropping further for unknown reasons 700 years ago, hitting a minimum about 1650.  Temperatures have been recovering since then, but are still colder than prior to 1300.

Solar influences on Earth's climate

The impact on Earth's climate of the changes and perturbations of the Earth's orbit around the sun is unknown and cannot be predicted.

The Sun is a variable star.  The impact on Earth's climate of the variations in the Sun's output of light, heat, and other radiation is unknown and cannot be predicted.

Cosmic influences on Earth's climate

The impact on Earth's climate of cosmic radiation (i.e., that from other suns, novas, supernovas, black holes, etc.) is unknown and cannot be predicted.

Past cosmic events, such as the meteor impact that killed the dinosaurs 65 million years ago and the supernova of 2.5 million years ago, have impacted Earth's climate and caused mass extinctions.

Forecasting Climate Change

"Climate has always varied
  on all time-scales
" – U.N.'s IPCC

But the causes of that variation are generally unknown and the impacts cannot be predicted.

The Accuracy of Weather Predictions

In 1963, meteorologist Edward Lorenz showed mathematically that, due to all the unknown sources of impacts on Earth's climate, reasonably accurate weather prediction beyond about three days is impossible.

All forecasts are statistically-based guesses, and are particularly prone to ever-greater error beyond three days.  The weather / climate for one week out, for two weeks out, for the next month, for the next year, for the next ten years, for the next thirty years, or in the year 2100 cannot be predicted.  The more distant the date, the less accurate is the forecast.

Those statistical guesses are based on computer models.  Those models' parameters are set by the person running the model, based on his beliefs.  As Edward Lorenz demonstrated, the slightest, supposedly insignificant change to those parameters results in radically different forecasts.

Statistics are not proof.

Statistics never establish causality.  Never.

Weather Forecasting and Statistically-based Modeling

All modeling used for weather forecasting, whether for near-term weather forecasting or for the climate in some more-distant future, is based on statistics.

Statistics are a record – a historical record – of what has already occurred.

Statistical modeling uses the past to forecast the future.

Statistical modeling looks for historical patterns and trends, and uses any it finds as a tool to forecast the future.

But the future is never just like the past.  As the U.N.'s IPCC stated, "Climate has always varied on all time-scales."

That use of statistics to forecast the future is identical to trying to drive your car solely by looking in the rear-view mirror.

It is possible to drive that way for a very short period of time – maybe only a few feet, maybe even for a hundred yards – if there are no sudden curves, no oncoming traffic, no kids on bicycles, no busy intersections – i.e., no unforeseen events – in front of you.

For both driving a car using only the rearview mirror, and for statistical modeling, the number of unpredictable events that could happen quickly pile up, becoming ever greater.  Over time, an ever-greater number of those possible events – and others not foreseen – actually do occur.

The inability to anticipate an unexpected incident eventually and inevitably results in a failure – not only for statistical modeling, but in the consequences for the people affected.

The whole subject has an exciting-sounding name – Chaos Theory – and includes astounding amounts of complexity.

Mathematicians specializing in Chaos Theory have developed some extremely complex calculations, trying to increase the accuracy of not only their weather predictions, but also similar predictions in other fields of interest as well – with limited successes.

They keep on piling up complexities upon complexities – trying to build castles in the clouds.

If only they could get that first foundation laid and solidly attached to the clouds, the rest would be easy.  They could build magnificent castles indeed.  There is no doubt about it.

But it is getting that first layer of stones and mortar attached to the clouds that is the problem.  Those castles' foundations just cannot seem to be solidly attached in place by anyone – mathematicians included.

They have lots of extremely complex equations, far beyond what any of us mere mortals would want to try to understand.  And yet, they just cannot seem to get that first layer of the foundation started for those castles in the clouds.

In the end, they are reduced to saying, "If we could change the problem a little, in just the right way, we could get an answer."

Well, of course.  If only you could change the rules, the rules would be different.

If only you could build your castle's foundation on the ground, you could build your castle.

If only you could see what is in front of your car by looking through the windshield instead of looking in the rear-view mirror, you would know where you are going.

If only statistics could establish causality, statistically-based modeling would work.

Ensemble Forecasting

Because the forecasting models invariably produce incorrect forecasts, the Chaos Theory mathematicians have developed a new forecasting technique:  "Ensemble Forecasting".

With Ensemble Forecasting, multiple forecasting models are run, each with multiple sets of inputs, in the hope that one of them will produce a result close to what actually happens.

This is equivalent to rolling a pair of dice and, rather than predict the result will be "7" (the most probable result), make the prediction that the result will be "5", "6", "7", "8", or "9".  By giving more guesses, the chance that one of them will be right is increased.

The Ensemble Forecasting used for Hurricane Matthew in 2016 demonstrated the lack of validity of this technique:  none of the forecasts got an answer that was even remotely close to the actual path of the hurricane.

Ensemble forecasting is an implicit admission that weather forecasting does not work.

Weather forecasting is barely precise within a few hours.  We have all experienced isolated or scattered storms; they can generally be predicted to occur somewhere in an area, but predicting a specific location is virtually impossible.

Weather forecasting further into the future becomes increasingly imprecise so quickly that forecasting beyond three days – and as Hurricane Matthew proved, sometimes beyond a fraction of a day – must become progressively more vague to be even remotely close to what actually happens.

To claim to be able to predict the climate of a year or ten years from now, or in 2100, is laughably absurd nonsense.

Climate, Chaos, and Politics

Mathematicians who have staked their careers, reputations, and incomes on Chaos Theory have a vested interest in convincing and assuring those who fund them that continued research will enable the development of substantially-improved means of the successful prediction of events through statistical modeling.

The same is true for the Meteorologists and Climatologists who adopt and use those models.

Similarly, the Politicians who have based their rise to power and attenpts to circumvent liberties and exert control on "fighting Climate Change" have just as much of a vested interest in perpetuating the claims of that same coterie of Mathematicians, Meteorologists, and Climatologists.

Politics and Earth's climate

Unlike every other country in the world, the United States' Constitution is above the government, beyond its ability to change.

Politicians naturally work to circumvent that or any limitation on their political power, to subvert it, and to erode its control over them.

Politicians in other countries likewise work to subvert the U.S. Constitution.  It stands as an affront to their own power, and as a beacon and reminder to their own population, undermining those politicians' own power over that subject population, and giving them hope of a better future.

Politicians – both in the U.S. and in other countries (and in the U.N.) – will seize on and utilize any tool which they believe can aid them in their quest for greater power and control over populations.

Politicians' Rule 1: "Never let a crisis go to waste."  Rule 2: "Manufacture the crisis."  Climate change is that kind of "crisis".

Stoking fears of climate change to enact laws that limit freedoms under the guise of resolving those issues and fears provides an avenue to greater political power.

Politicians naturally believe they are better qualified to govern the actions of others than are those others themselves.

Politicians in countries which oppose the U.S. also see climate-based limitations placed on the U.S. as a means of diminishing its power and influence, which means more power for them.

Politicians uniformly strive for more political power.  The greater the political power at stake, the more ruthless the pursuit.

Politics is highly competitive, and politicians tend to be replaced by politicians who strive harder and are more ruthless than their predecessors.

The U.S. Constitution disarms would-be dictators, and so remains the best means ever developed to assure the greatest possible limitation and restraint of political power.

Ancient genomes suggest woolly rhinos went extinct due to climate change, not overhunting

The DNA data also revealed genetic mutations that helped the woolly rhinoceros adapt to colder weather.  One of these mutations, a type of receptor in the skin for sensing warm and cold temperatures, has also been found in woolly mammoths.  Adaptations like this suggest the woolly rhinoceros, which was particularly suited to the frigid northeast Siberian climate, may have declined due to the heat of a brief warming period, known as the Bølling-Allerød interstadial, that coincided with their extinction towards the end of the last ice age.  "We're coming away from the idea of humans taking over everything as soon as they come into an environment, and instead elucidating the role of climate in megafaunal extinctions."

Texas cave sediment upends meteorite explanation for global cooling

"These signatures were likely the result of major eruptions across the Northern Hemisphere, including volcanoes in the Aleutians, Cascades and even Europe."  The Younger Dryas cooling lasted about 1,200 years, so a sole volcanic eruptive cause is an important initiating factor, but other Earth system changes, such as cooling of the oceans and more snow cover were needed to sustain this colder period.  This research underscores that extreme climate variability since the last ice age is attributed to unique Earth-bound drivers rather than extraterrestrial mechanisms.

Chicago - not exactly global warming

21 November 2018

More than a dozen prominent scientists will be presenting evidence Friday and Saturday casting doubt on the United Nations’ assertion that human activity is causing a global warming crisis.

Several of these scientists co-authored or reviewed portions of Climate Change Reconsidered, a series of comprehensive climate science volumes compiled by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC).

Among the highlights of the EIKE conference, scientists will discuss the latest science regarding natural climate cycles, sea level, solar variability versus atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, shortcomings regarding renewable power, flaws in asserted temperature histories, the benefits of a warmer world, desertification, and ulterior goals of climate activists.

“The scientific evidence and conclusions reported by climate scientists are far different than what the environmental left and their legacy media allies would like the public to believe.”

Historic temperatures do not show a warming trend - and NOAA confirmed it before it began the data tampering.

Global "warming"?   Forget it!   The Sun is cooling!   And Earth is cooling with it.
Solar cooling allows more Galactic radiation to get into the Solar System, and to Earth

Currently, Solar output is down 0.1% across the energy spectrum.
The Sun is a variable star - a much bigger factor on changes to our climate than any man-made activity.

Someone had this perceptive commentary on geological issues -
No evidence the sealevel is rising. However, it's a matter of perception. I forget which geology class it was mentioned in when I was getting my geology degree, but the west coast rocks are rising, meaning that the sealevel appears to be falling, and the east coast rocks are subsiding, meaning that sealevel appears to be rising there.

There is also the perception that some subsiding islands mean sealevel rise and those islands that are rising suggest sealevels lowering.There IS a major problem with many islands that have starved out their coral reefs from overfishing. Some have even all but destroyed the live corals at the top from dynamite fishing. And some heavily populated islands have polluted their island reefs to death. The upshot is that coral atolls are built by subducting ocean floors, while the corals keep growing toward sunlight and thus keep the atoll above sealevel. Well, these goobers have damaged or killed off their corals. Time to swim.

But it's so much easier to blame someone else, and so religions like global warming make it easy for them. If it's magically someone else's fault, then they don't have to fix their own problems like bleaching of the corals from aspergillus from soil erosion.

Gobekli Tepe carving documents impact of comet fragments that made Earth colder, about 10,950 BC - The event described by the carving at Gobekli Tepe (in southern Turkey) seems to describe the Younger Dryas comet and the resulting extinctions described here, here, here, here, here, and elsewhere (search for "Younger Dryas impact", "Clovis comet", and the North American "Clovis culture demise").

The Gobekli Tepe setlement was built at the very beginning of the human race's transition from nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes to permanent settlement, supported by the discovery and use of the methods of agriculture.   This article suggests that the catastrophic damage caused by the comet may have triggered the transition, due to a greater dependence on agriculture as a necessry means to survival.

If true, human civilization can be pinpointed as having begun at Gobekli Tepe, about 10,950 BC.

Climate scientist did not toe the party line - and politics out-ranked the data

Antarctic (South Pole) sea ice has not shrunk in 100 years; land ice increasing according to NASA
"We know that sea ice in the Antarctic has increased slightly over the past 30 years, since satellite observations began."

In another statement, the point was made, "One problem that persists is that there is still only a relatively short series of direct measurements on which to base our understanding of the Arctic. Satellite monitoring of the Arctic only began in 1978, giving us less than forty years of reliable data." (emphasis added)

In studying the climate, forty years is but an instant in time.   Natural variation will inevitably mask any man-made impact during such a short period.   No claim of human impact on climate or specifically, the Arctic ice pack, is therefore possible.   To do so is to state an unabashed falsehood - a deliberate, deceptive lie, which can only serve the purpose of the liar.

Excerpts from Media falsely spins Trump's comments on climate change
- The U.S. has had no Category 3 or larger hurricane make landfall since 2005 - the longest spell since the Civil War.
- Strong F3 or larger tornadoes have been in decline since the 1970s.
- Sea level rise rates have been steady for over a century, with recent deceleration.
- Droughts and floods are neither historically unusual nor caused by mankind, and there is no evidence we are currently having any unusual weather.

As noted, "Climate change is a political issue, with political ramifications - freedom vs. control - and not a scientific issue."

14 October 2016

Sadly, there are always those sick souls who will find any excuse to feed their desire to see rampant death and destruction.

As one person noted about Hurricane Matthew's passage, "Some seem disappointed there isn't tragic loss of life/apocalyptic." That describes the nature of those perverse people who so hate their own lives (and people generally) that they would like nothing better than to see destruction on a global scale, even if it would mean their own deaths.   The "global warming" / "climate change" movements serve to provide them with an excuse to feed that self-destructive hatred.

There is no rationale beyond their hatred for life itself that has any meaning for them.   "Science" - i.e., their selective use of a limited, isolated set of facts - to them is just an excuse.
