The Independent Thinker’s GLOBAL WARMING FACT SHEET
“Major” media, governments and environmental groups are pushing for global protocols to address rising CO2 levels that are said to be causing worldwide “climate change” Al Gore’s Oscar-winning film “An Inconvenient Truth” depicted a terrifying future resulting from man-made global warming. More than 30,000 scientists around the world disagree with Al Gore. Here are 10 facts you should know:
1. Global warming is attributed to rising levels of CO2 (a greenhouse gas) in the atmosphere, in turn being attributed to industry and the burning of fossil fuels. Yet greenhouse gases have always surrounded the earth. The main component of greenhouse gas today is water vapor, accounting for 65-85%.
2. CO2 is not a pollutant. It is in fact essential to life and comprises only 2% of greenhouse gas. Of the 210 billion tons of CO2 released each year from the earth into its atmosphere, humans contribute a mere 6.3 billion tons - 3% of the 2%.
3. The earth’s average atmospheric temperature has risen and fallen throughout time. It was much warmer 7000 years ago than it is today. Even 800 years ago, portions of ice-covered Greenland were fertile and being farmed by Vikings (hence its name).
4. Climate scientists and biologists concur that solar activity (e.g., solar flares) occurring between 1975 and 1998 is most likely the reason that the earth experienced a recent warming trend.
5. In the 1970s, our media was reporting a threat of global cooling and an oncoming ice age. In the 1980s, average global temperatures rose slightly. By 1998, another cooling period had set in. We are now in a phase of global cooling, not global warming.
6. 1934 was the hottest year in 120 years, followed by 1998, then 1921, 2006 and 1933. Three of the five hottest years in over a century were in the 1920s and 1930s, when man-made CO2 was not at current levels.
7. Warmer temperatures of cities compared to surrounding countryside have to do with land use (the presence of concrete, asphalt, glass and metal buildings) - not automobile exhaust, industry, or CO2.
8. The documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth” showed CO2 and temperature graphs that led audiences to believe that as CO2 rises, so do global temperatures. But when these graphs are juxtaposed instead of being separated, it is clear that temperature rises first and CO2 follows. In fact, temperature leads CO2 by about 600 years.
9. The warmer the ambient temperature, the more things grow. Plants and vegetation need CO2 to survive, and also release CO2. As oceans warm, they give off CO2. Thus, warmer gobal temperatures are followed by an increase in plant life and a rise in CO2.
10. Man-made global warming is said to be causing “climate change”. However, the earth’s climate is a natural and fluid aspect of its physics and environment. Climate is not static and will always be subject to variability.
