Temperature changes drive carbon dioxide levels

How to mislead (lie?) with global temperature trends?….always start low

“This exposes the ubiquitous trick of the Climate Debate, in which Global Temperatures are [almost] always shown only from the depths of the Little Ice Age (clearly marked on the first graph by Gebbie), resulting in images similar to Gebbie’s Figure 2 — despite the fact that most 2 millennia reconstructions clearly show the Roman and Medieval Warm Periods as generally in the same range as the Modern Warm Period.   Given the acknowledged range of error  in any temperature reconstruction and in modern estimates of global surface temperatures (today, in absolute temperatrures,  around +/- 0.5ºC  or a range of 1ºC)  — there may be little, if any,  significant-to-the-global-environment difference  between the two periods.” click here

Texas surface temperatures increase due to arbitrary data changes

Anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is merely conceptual, not quantifiable

“According to one of the most frequently referenced papers advancing the position that CO2 concentration changes (and downward longwave radiation perturbations) drive surface temperature changes, Feldman et al. (2015)concluded there was a modest 0.2 W/m² forcing associated with CO2 rising by 22 ppm per decade. Again, that’s a total CO2 influence of 0.2 W/m² over ten years. In contrast, analyses from several new papers indicate the uncertainty and error values in downwelling (and outgoing) longwave radiation in cloudless environments are more than 100 times larger than 0.2 W/m².” click here

Policies to address man-made global warming are “counter-productive and harmful to ordinary citizens”

“Policies imposed by politicians to address purported man-made global warming are worse than fruitless; they are increasingly counter-productive and harmful to ordinary citizens.” click here

Natural forcing explains 1979 to 2011 satellite data temperature trend

“From 1979 to 2011, satellite data provide documentation of a reduction in cloud cover and aerosol depth that allowed an additional 2.3 W/m² of positive shortwave energy to be absorbed by the Earth’s surface rather than reflected to space.” click here
