Global Warming……

24 Aug

It is without doubt one of the most influential topics if our time.  Vast sums of money have been invested in researching the subject.  Ask any Scientist how they get their funding and more often than not there will be a Global Warming aspect to their research.  As the IPCC report affirms there is ‘incontrovertible’ evidence for its existence.  The report sights 2500 of the worlds top experts amongst its authors, even though many have withdrawn their support only to be told that, due to their contributions being included, their names remain on the list of authors, regardless of their questioning the conclusions drawn therein……

Inconclusive Data……

The link between Carbon Dioxide and Global Warming has been placed at the forefront of the debate.  This was primarily due to the apparent correlation between ice core samples dating back some 100,000 years,  which appear to show that, in the past when the temperature increased, so did the CO2.  Upon closer analysis of the data it appears to show that, whilst this is a fact, the CO2 increase lags behind the temperature increase by some considerable time.  Thus demonstrating that the link between the two parameters appears such that the temperature is responsible for the increase in CO2 and not the other way around.

Bad Science……

Of the gasses in the Atmosphere responsible for ‘The Greenhouse Effect’, 95% is water vapour.  Out of the remaining 5%, manmade CO2 is responsible for less than 0.5%, the rest consisting of rotting vegetable matter, volcanoes and naturally occurring bush fires etc.  The media would have us believe that man made CO2 was the ‘be all’ and ‘end all’ of the matter.  This is simply not true……

A Vested Interest……

Back in the early 1970’s scientist warned of a mini-ice age.  Funny how in 30 years the tables have completely turned and, now it is the catastrophic effects of a 2 to 5 degrees of warming over the next 50 to 100 years.  The facts of the matter are that this planet has varied in temperature quite dramatically in the past, yet still life has prevailed.  Huge sums of money and hundreds of thousands of jobs rely upon Global Warming.  In the past 20 years despite numerous global agreements to limit the proliferation of greenhouse gasses, to date, no noticeable change in the amounts discharged into our atmosphere can be measured.  This has more to do with money than the interests of our planet, which will survive regardless.  Unfortunately, any serious scientific challenge to the accepted Global Warming model is swiftly quashed and its author may find themselves on the outside, unable to fund valuable research.  This is a blatant assault on the peer reviewed scientific method which has served us so well for the past 300 years……
