They appear to have peaked and are going down again. This graph has appeared to end at about 2005. However, the overwheming trend is obvious, since about 1950, its been going up. Where we are now (in terms of abnormality) we are far above where we where during the recent 'warming periods.'
Pleases explain how this is an abnormality? If I remember correctly the winters of 1948 and 49 were the worst winters in a century. According to the first graph you linked it showed a high CO2 level. Is that a bad graph or is it as I have stated that CO2 levels are a forecaster of cold weather. The New York Times was talking about the coming ice age.
You see in the short term yes, there is a spike. In the course of the planet which has cycles of 20 thousand years there is not much of a spike. I have also mentioned that the Sun is getting larger and as it expands the planets get warmer.
The second chart you linked showed a steady rise in temp. That is good since it goes along with what scientists have been saying since the 1960’s that we are still coming out of the last big ice age. I mean you do know that without our atmosphere the temperature on this planet would be about 240 degrees right? You know the same temp as on the moon. So if that is normal then we are well below normal. I also noticed that the chart only goes back 2000 years but does not cover the last ice age and the recovery the planet is making from that.
The third chart is a joke right? there has been a steady eruption for a volcano there since the early 80’s and it was belching for years before that, don’t you think that at 1.4 million tons of carbon put out daily you would see it as well as temps going up. I mean the last time I checked volcanoes were warm sort of.
The fourth chart is strange since we are putting out less carbon now than 100 years ago according to the IPCC. It is an established fact that the 1800 was the worst for mankind and pollution. So if we are putting out less carbon why are the numbers still going up?
The fifth link is really cute. Two months ago the IPCC had to recant its never been published report on Global Climate Change because all the scientific data conflicts with the opinions of the scientist. You see there is a difference between theory and fact. The theory is that man is the cause of climate change. The facts dispute this theory. Also please don’t use Wikipedia as your source because it is a free site. What I mean by that is that you can post whatever you want on the site and unless it is challenged it will stay up there. I can say that Ronald Reagan is still alive and until someone points out that we buried him they won’t take it off the site. I can then use it as proof that he is not dead. Try the kook fringe sites that I use like NASA.
Thanks for trying to be balanced but I still don’t hold stock in Wikipedia. It will point you in the right direction but as a sole source it is suspect because anyone can input what they want as fact.
Based on what you have written you seem like a rational person so far. Do the research yourself. Start with the largest cause of global warming, the Sun. see how it has been expanding over the centuries and warming up all the planets. Based on the planets atmospheric composition some of the planets get hotter faster. Look at Mars for example. It has an atmosphere of carbon dioxide. It is toxic to humans. We have not burned any trees or coal and yet the global temperature is -75 degrees on the hottest day of the year. This does not sound like CO2 is much of a greenhouse gas.
As you can see, its pretty much accepted fact among scientists that climate change is real. Of course, they are all just part of the liberal conspiracy . In all seriousness, there are very few scientists opposing the notion of climate change. Everyone knows that we have had heat waves and cold spells, over time the trend has been up.
The fact of global warming or climate change has never been in doubt. It is a scientific fact and no rational person has ever disputed it.
The arguments start to fly when scientist argue that man is the sole cause of this warming or cooling. Don’t confuse the two points. One is that there is global climate change. The second is that man is the blame. People who are disputing the findings of these reports don’t disagree as to the change just that man is the sole cause.
Just for the record a consensus is not fact it is an agreement with something. The millions of people around the world that are still members of the flat earth society have a consensus that the earth is flat. That does not make it a scientific fact.
It was a scientific belief that women did not have orgasms. The clitoris was a piece of useless flesh in the scientific world. It did not even have a name until the 1890’s and not until the 1950’s was it known to be one of the causes of orgasms in women. So much for scientific consensus.
