There is no disagreement about climate change. It has existed since the first day the earth was created. The weather changes every day, sometime good, sometimes bad.
The only disagreement is that the weather is influence by the carbon dioxide generated by man, and the answer is an emphatic NO.
Since 1979 the climate alarmists, sponsored largely by the U.N. , have tried to convince us otherwise with ‘models’, predictions, future graphs, fear tactics, deliberate distortions of the truth and endless deliberate lies.
These are some of them;
- 1. Melting of the Himalayan mountains.
- 2. Seas rising up to 5 metres in the next ten years (was quoted in 1979.)
- 3. Over 40% of the Amazon rainforest will die.
- 4. Seas will turn acidic and kill the Great Barrier Reef.
- 5. The world average temperature will increase by at least 5 degrees Celsius.
- 6. 100,000 people will die because they cannot grow food.
- 7. The Arctic and Antarctic ice caps will melt and cause the World to flood.
- 8. Severe weather events will become worse and more often.
- 9. Australia will run out of water and must build desalination plants at a cost of some 10 billion dollars. (Re Tim Flannery and his crazy predictions.)
- 10. Polar bears will die in their thousands.
Forty five years later not one of these predictions have eventuated, although when the summer melt comes every year to the polar caps the alarmists run around saying look, look its happening. Only to be disappointed when winter comes and they freeze over again.
The one sad exception is the glaciers that really are slowly melting. But they have been melting since long before Captain Cook’s time. He measured the glaciers in Glacier bay, Alaska when they were a further 15 kilometres down Glacier Bay and they have been melting since before then. Glaciers are a carryover from the last ice age and if we remove every trace of carbon dioxide they would continue to melt and there is nothing we can do to stop it.
I could go on to disprove every one of those ridiculous statements but all of these events depend on one supposed cause and that is Carbon Dioxide generated by man.
Proving that anthropogenic Carbon Dioxide has no effect whatsoever on out climate would immediately negate all these predictions and any event that occurs has nothing to do with man made Carbon Dioxide and is only a deceitful greedy grab for billions of dollars and World domination by the United Nations and their cohorts.
The alarmists tells us that the amount of Carbon Dioxide in our atmosphere has increased from 350 to 390 parts per million in the last fifty years.
So what is the total Carbon Dioxide in out Atmosphere. Part per million means little, so lets put it in a logical comparison. We will assume it is 400 p.p.m. for simplicity. (increase of 50 parts per million over 50 years.)
Take a 12 litre bucket ( 3 gallons) and fill it to the top with water. Now add one teaspoon of water---That is the total Carbon Dioxide in our atmosphere.
But that is not what they say is causing Climate Change—only that amount that has been added to the atmosphere by man and that is less than 4% of all CO2 generated.
Where naturally created CO2 is different from manmade CO2 is yet to be shown or proven.
50 p.p.m. increase in 50 years or 1 p.p.m. of CO2 added per year i.e. 400 x 12 litres =4800 litre. Equating to one teaspoon of CO2 add to 4800 litres per year.
But that is the total amount, manmade CO2 is only 4% of that or one twenty-fifth.
Thus the amount of manmade CO2 added by the whole World is 25 x 4800 or
One teaspoon per 120,000 litres of water per year.
Australia contribution is a maximum of 1.5% of that total i.e. 120,000 x 66.66 =7.992000 litres. That is: Australia contribution of manmade CO2 is one teaspoon in 8 million litres of water per year.
Can you honestly believe a totally harmless inert gas that you breath in at 400p.p.m. and out at 40,000 p.p.m. (see link) and is essential to all plant life, has no more insulating qualities than many other gases can affect out climate in this amount.
Hydrogen for instance has 14 times more thermal conductive qualities than air. But no one mentioned that.
These figures can be easily confirmed. Judge for yourself on the figures and run them through yourselves.
Typical of some of the lies are figures quoted by someone who did not have a clue about power station operations, that were complete fabrications and lies.
Power Station boilers are a closed system and do NOT use large amounts of water. In fact almost none is lost. Cooling towers use river or lake water and is no different to evaporation elsewhere. As for using energy to create power, of course they do like everything else.
If you can find an alternative you will make billions.
