‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’ Not Caused by Human Activities

History Lesson

When one thinks about Anthropogenic Global Warming – namely atmospheric warming due to man’s ‘alleged’ cause of spewing [CO2] – maybe, just maybe one will remember that 3-4 billion years ago, the sun had only 70 percent of today’s output.

Obama Slams ‘AGW’ With Non-Existent Money

After the recent Lima Climate Conference, Obama is spending another $33 billion from a budget already grown to a deficit of over $18 trillion.

Forget the ‘culprit’ of Anthropogenic Global Warming [CO2] is now called a “pollutant” by the EPA. Forget [CO2] is absolutely necessary for photosynthesis, driving every living plant on the planet earth.

Radiometric dates in black grid of 50 million year increments with epochs in alternating grey and white. Glacial periods are overprinted in solid cyan. Note the greater correlation between cosmic radiation and temperature than between carbon dioxide and temperature. Note also the sudden rise in extinction rates every time global mean temperature falls below 19 degrees Celcius. The only extinction event to occur above 19 degrees Celcius occurs in response to a sudden drop in oxygen levels. Up until the breakup of Gondwana, oxygen and temperature have a roughly inverse correlation. Relative sea level sometimes correlates directly, sometimes inversely, and at other times indefinitely which, is to say that mean sea level and temperature do not correlate throughout geological history.

Forget data from history revealing [CO2] as high as 17,000 ppm in the Precambrian Era, even though today it’s 400 ppm.

Scientists Smarter Than Thought

Forget that most scientists dispute any global warming crisis, and there is no scientific consensus.

Only 36 percent of scientists believe human activity is the problem, per peer-reviewed Organization Studies. It reveals the majority of 1,077 respondents believe nature is the cause of any global warming. Results show geo-scientists, engineers and meteorologists think similarly. Recent surveys of meteorologist beliefs are summarized here and here, with similar skepticism of global warming claims.

‘AGW’ believers never mention earth is a totally closed-loop system. Basically the exact same amount of [CO2], [CH4], [O2], and even [Au (gold)], has existed in the earth’s crust for eons.

Weather Actually More Complicated

Weather measurements – temperature, wind speed, barometric pressure – are developments only in the last century. All other sophisticated devices such as satellites, weather balloons, geosynchronous devices, etc…, have only been around for the last few decades.

Let’s also forget Australia’s Prime Minister Abbott will keep their coal reserves, and wisely use them.

Study Proves Scientist Beliefs

Organization Studies shows an overwhelming majority of scientists fall within four categories, each skeptical of alarmist global warming claims.

Those groups skeptical about ‘settled’ debate, recognize the bias IPCC has with the data, and understand nature is not ‘manually’ controllable. They realize the harm Kyoto Protocol and regulations add to the economy.

Taken together, the four skeptic-groups greatly outnumber the 36 percent group believing ‘AGW’ is from human activity.

This survey gives scientists’ beliefs – not bureaucrats publishing alarmist statements without member scientists’ knowledge.

Typical bureaucrats who try to represent meteorologists, geo-scientists, and engineers usually suck-up to media and government by attempting to say the opposite of what scientists actually believe.

Antarctic Sea Ice Abundant

And, directly from NASA, Arctic sea ice measured slightly smaller, but Antarctic ice was at an all-time high. In 2014, ice surrounding Antarctica covered more than it had since early satellites showed in the 1970s.

Walt Meier, NASA [!] Goddard Space Flight Center, wanted to know why Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets behave in different ways.

“The increase we’ve seen in Antarctic sea ice is a little bit of a mystery,” allows Meier. “We’re still trying to figure out how a warmer global climate leads to these regional increases in ice cover.”

It sounds like Meier may still not believe the whole story.

NASA Has ‘AGW’ Disbelievers

A group of former NASA astronauts has called on NASA to stop making “unproven and unsubstantiated remarks” regarding ‘AGW’ – specifically, the fallacy of human activities driving ‘AGW’. “We believe the claims by NASA that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated,” write 49 signatories from the NASA letter.

Even more exclaim how climate is not warming, but actually cooling since 1998 [e.g., Investor’s Business Daily, 2008].

It’s easy for bureaucrats to discount normal earth variances such as the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO), La Nina, Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO); every 20-30 yrs), Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO; every 15-30 yrs), Atlantic Multi-Decadal Oscillation (AMO), Madison-Julian Oscillation (MJO), North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), Southern Pacific Oscillation (IPA), Sea Surf Temp (SST), Aleutian Low (AO), Mixed Layer Depth (MLD), Rossby Waves (RW), Ekman Transport, Quasi-Decadal Oscillation (QDO), Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCRs), and the Pacific North American pattern (PNA).

Cycles Fill Climate

Milankovitch Cycles are caused by cyclical changes in earth’s circumnavigation of the sun. Variations in the earth’s rotational eccentricity [every 100,000 yrs], axial tilt [every 41,000 yrs], and precession [earth’s wobble as it spins on axis; every 23,000 yrs].

Along with all these climate-changers, there’s also cloud cover, volcanic eruptions [CO2], Thermo-haline Circulation, droughts, hurricanes, X-rays, Ultraviolet Radiation, and the “Dust Bowl.” All of these affect global warming.

Total Solar Irradiation, TSI, cycles with the earth are listed in a link below. They range from the shortest cycle found in sunspot numbers, 3.7 years, to the ice-age repeat-time of 100,000 years.

Seven Different Methods All Yield The Same Result … Cooling ahead!

Most geo-scientists, meteorologists, and engineers agree with this link above. All of the sunspot activity and various individual cycle times will amplify complete chaos in cyclic systems. This is why climate has been so unpredictable in the past. It’s also the reason a few hundred parts per million of [CO2] will never alter climate. All one has to do is look back at the Precambrian Era to see no effect of 14,000 ppm [CO2].

Just how many things are we supposed to forget?

Which Being, or Entity, determines how all these cycles come together to form a finite operating universe?

The answer is obvious…
