AGW Claims vs. Truth – 2. Carbon Dioxide and Warming

AGW Claim 2. Manmade carbon dioxide (CO2) is the main cause of global warming Truth: a.) Carbon dioxide is a minor player in any further warming. It is uniformly distributed in the atmosphere but only absorbs infrared (heat) in a very narrow wavelength range. The CO2 wavelength range is outside the range of most of… Continue reading AGW Claims vs. Truth – 2. Carbon Dioxide and Warming

AGW Claims vs Truth – 1b timeline of climate alarms

Part 2 of answers to AGW Claim 1. "Global warming and/or climate change are established facts."  See "Anthropogenic Global Warming vs. Truth - Part 1" blog post for Part 1. Quote: “Since 1895, the media has alternated between global cooling and warming scares during four separate and sometimes overlapping time periods. From 1895 until the 1930’s the media… Continue reading AGW Claims vs Truth – 1b timeline of climate alarms

Anthropogenic Global Warming Claims vs Truth – 1

Manmade global warming, AGW or climate change is said to be an established fact, and the consequences are dire unless global governments act now to mitigate its effects. The polar ice caps and glaciers will melt away; the oceans will rise and drown coastal and island regions; droughts, floods, storms and temperatures will all increase and millions,… Continue reading Anthropogenic Global Warming Claims vs Truth – 1

Solar Activity, Cosmic Rays, Clouds and Climate

  In this YouTube video Henrik Svensmark and colleagues demonstrate the links between Solar Activity and Climate, arising through interaction of the Solar magnetic field and Solar Wind with galactic Cosmic Rays. A weaker field lets more Cosmic Rays through to our atmosphere.  More Cosmic Rays form more ions that nucleate low level clouds. More low level… Continue reading Solar Activity, Cosmic Rays, Clouds and Climate
