Critical Facts 6. Empirical observations indicate CO2 is not a major driver of climate change.
As previously discussed in Critical Facts 4 and 5, empirical (real) observations are important. A hypothesis such as "manmade CO2 is a (or the) major cause of global warming" must stand up to testing by real world observations to continue to be valid. Observe Critical Facts numbers 4 and 5 again to see that Earth's temperatures have declined for decades as CO2 levels continued to rise. Observed in the figures below how temperatures have varied even though the ice cores and IPCC data show that CO2 levels remain quite stable at approximately 280 ppm with the exception of the last 150 years. Also note that the recent rate of change is not unprecedented, a fact now admitted by Professor Phil Jones who directed the Climate Research Unit a East Anglia University that fed data to the IPCC committees.
Clearly other drivers were powering climate change on decade-long scales. Looking back over 1,000 years, we find that the supposedly stable interglacial CO2 concentration of 280 ppm, as professed by the manmade warming advocates, was accompanied by centuries-long temperature rises and falls. Doesn't this make you want to stop and think what could be the agenda of those who would choose to ignore the real data and even be willing to reduce the input of something as beneficial to the Earth as CO2?
Our goal is to educate the public on these astonishing benefits of more airborne CO2 and in doing so, help protect these benefits from being diminished in the name of a hypothesis that we believe has been proven false.
