I thought that I would take a break from relationships and sex and write about something else near and dear to my heart. Al Gore and the media have declared that global warming is a fact. Read my piece and see if you still think so after reading it. It is based upon hard science that is not opinion or consensus but real hard facts.
Many scientists have gone to great pains to put the blame on the temporary slight increase in the average global temperature on CO2. There are no scientific experiments according to the Scientific Method to prove this. The scientists conveniently forget to tell you that we have been in a world wide cooling cycle for the last 8 years with record low temps being set around the globe. Of the billions of dollars being funded to study global warming, there is none for refutation research in violation of The Scientific Method. There are no double blind studies like legitimate scientific research.
In fact, the IPCC does not respond to or publish refutation pieces by mainstream scientists. Their whole theory is based upon highly flawed computer modeling that posits that CO2 will rise into the atmosphere and stay there for 100 years. The simple answer to that is that CO2 has a specific gravity (relative to air) of 1.52 which means that it is 152% heavier than air and sinks to the ground when released. The scientists trumpet the fact that we have had an 80 ppm (parts per million) increase in CO2 in the last 100 years. The fractional equivalent of 80 ppm is 8/100,000ths of 1%. That is a trace amount by any legitimate measure. What you have is wind blown particles that settle out when the wind dies down just like dust.
There can be a case to be made for man made or anthropogenic global warming but it has absolutely nothing to do with CO2. We have over 5,000 jets flying over our air space in this country at any one time. That does not include the rest of the jets flying around other countries. These jets have an exhaust temp of 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. That could add to the average temperature increase.
We have millions of miles of asphalt roads that heat up and reflect back the heat causing increased temps. We have millions of houses with asphalt shingles that heat up and reflect heat back into the atmosphere.
We have millions of cars and trucks that put heat out into the atmosphere.
Then we have the heat sensors for recording temps being set up in cities. This gives a false positive for increased temps because of the “heat island effect”. This is a scandal that is little reported in scientific circles much as less in public circles.
We also have industry as well as heating plants burning coal to generate electricity that all contribute heat into the atmosphere.
The best microcosm of the globe can be represented by the Mall of America located in Minneapolis , MN. It is the second largest mall in the world. The temperatures routinely get down to 20 below zero in the wintertime. Now the Mall has no heating apparatus or furnaces of any kind. In spite of this, it stays a comfortable 68 degrees F in the winter time. That is an increase of 88 degrees F from outside ambient temperature. How is this possible? All of the heat from the lights in the mall plus the aggregate body heat from all of the visitors.
We have increased the world population by billions of people. Isn’t it possible that the increase population and all of the other heat causing factors mentioned in the article could result in the one degree increase in world wide temperatures. Does this not make more sense than CO2 which is a heavier than air gas that sinks to the ground when it is released. There is a principle in science called Occam’s Razor. The gist of Occam’s Razor is that the simplest explanation is usually correct. Does not my explanation make more sense than CO2? You decide and let me know what you think
