Could CO2 Actually Cause Slight Beneficial Warming?

December 5, 2020 by

3

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Precision research by physicists William Happer and Willem van Wijngaarden has determined that the current levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and water vapor are “saturated.” In radiation physics that means adding more CO2 or water molecules will bring modest warming that will benefit plant growth, and thus all life on […]

‘CO2 Levels’ And Your ‘Carbon Footprint’ – NOT The Problem You’ve Been Told

May 29, 2020 by

0

By Dan Nebert ~ Last year a student at a nearby university complained she couldn’t focus in class; she was convinced high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) were the cause. The entire building was immediately evacuated and tested for “toxic levels of this dangerous gas.” After determining the CO2 levels were less than 500 parts-per-million […]

Common Sense Musings On The Climate Debate

October 14, 2019 by

2

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Scientists on both sides of the climate debate agree; Fossil fuel use puts C02 (Carbon Dioxide) into the atmosphere. Plants need C02 to survive. C02 is a greenhouse gas. Water vapor (clouds) is the largest greenhouse gas, by far. C02 levels in the atmosphere have increased and are higher than […]

June 6, 2019 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ A lead May 14 article posted by Sonya Collins in WebMD, “Will Climate Change Cause Food Sources to Dwindle?” suffers from very poor planet, plant and people health diagnostics. Key claims of the medically-muddled meme are that human carbon dioxide emissions are causing more frequent severe weather conditions to occur (which […]

‘Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment’

May 18, 2019 by

2

Joe Bastardi  ~     Apparently, the new strategy to fight climate change is shock therapy. It’s like today’s environmental crusaders are channeling the Ramones song “Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment.” Here are some illustrations. Example #1: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said she was only kidding around when she made a big deal about the world ending […]

Feel Free To Exhale

May 15, 2019 by

By Craig Rucker ~ Global warming campaigners aren’t very good at being green. There’s their bird and bat chopping wind turbines, lifeless fields covered over by solar panel silicone, and generating electricity by grinding trees into pellets and burning them as “renewable” biomass. Then there’s their demonization of CO2, the gas you just exhaled. CO2 […]

By Craig Rucker ~ Marc Morano, over at CFACT’s Climate Depot, has been busy fighting the good fight of climate realism on various media fronts. These include recent television appearances on Fox News, Newsmax TV, and The Sean Hannity Show, among others. His powerful presentation of common sense and logic, of course, has not gone unnoticed by […]

Rising CO2 Levels Boost Agricultural Productivity, Human Health

May 9, 2019 by

3

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ A constant refrain of climate alarmists and “clean-energy” business eager to cash in on the scare is that the use of fossil fuels to create energy is endangering the climate by overloading the atmosphere with manmade greenhouse gases. This, we are told, is responsible for rising sea levels, floods, droughts, […]

Carbon Is Not A Synonym For Carbon Dioxide

April 26, 2019 by

3

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ From the very day that Al Gore signed his name to the well known book, An Inconvenient Truth, the general population was told that carbon emissions were going to destroy our planet. Gore, more or less, coined the term “carbon footprint” (while always hiding the enormity of his own footprint). […]

Perspective Needed in Climate Debate

March 9, 2019 by

Joe Bastardi  ~      I went to school with a lot of great forecasters. One of them was Scott Chesner, who is an on-air meteorologist in Tyler, Texas. Scott tweeted something this week that I thought was quite profound regarding the current generation’s “consensus” on climate: “One problem with global warming hysteria is ‘perspective.’ […]

Two CO2 Climate Change Myths

March 14, 2018 by

5

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ CO2 does not “trap heat” in the atmosphere and the increase in CO2 is not a buildup of our emissions. In fact these are two pseudoscientific myths that appear frequently in alarmist press reports and teaching materials. Neither one is true. The science is quite different. It is actually pretty […]

EPA Ponders Regulating CO2

December 27, 2017 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The second shoe has dropped in EPA’s wondering about how to regulate CO2 emissions from power plants. As the shoe dropping metaphor suggests, EPA can now go to sleep for awhile. Everyone else is going to be very busy commenting on this complex issue. The first shoe dropped in October when […]

Ignorance, Intolerance, Violence

Scientists, engineers, and policy analysts who are part of the nonprofit organization turned out in force Friday […]

Why The Media’s Portrayal Of Carbon Dioxide Is Often Wrong

September 7, 2016 by

1

By Nicolas Loris ~ The media is helping governments wage an all-out war on carbon dioxide while distorting the truth about the colorless gas. This blitz could come with considerable costs for Americans with negligible benefits, at most. Over the weekend, the United States officially joined the Paris Protocol to combat manmade global warming while President […]
