The USEPA GHG Endangerment Finding is Flawed

Regardless of whether you are for or against attempting to control long-term weather patterns (by the way, that’s what climate is) by regulating CO2 (a futile quest) the EPA endangerment finding is both technically and legally flawed. Even a simple analysis such as mine (e.g. here) came to that conclusion in June 2013. But more knowledgeable people than I (e.g. here) have submitted comments ignored by USEPA revealing the inadequacy of USEPA’s GHG endangerment finding. In her 2012 appeals court opinion Justice Janice Rodgers Brown explained the situation well (here) .

A Critical Look at Surface Temperature Records

Data Opposing CO2 Emissions as the Primary Source of Global Warming

“This paper investigates United States and global surface temperature data sets and the many issues that call into question the integrity of the data and thus the ability to determine global temperature trends. These factors are shown to lead to significant uncertainty and a tendency for overestimation of century-scale temperature trends.”

Nonexistent Correlation between CO2 and Temperture

“The HadCRUT global temperature dataset that the IPCC references contains instrumental records that date back to the year 1850. Precise CO2 data (measured in tenths of parts per million)  from thousands of years ago can be found in Antarctic ice cores, with direct measurements (Mauna Loa) available since the 1950s.   In comparing the two records, it can be concluded that during the last 165 years, rapidly increasing CO2 concentrations only correlate with rapidly increasing global temperatures for one 25-year period (1977-2001).   Put another way, for 85% of the last 165 years there has been little to no correlation between CO2 concentration changes and temperature changes.” click here for full article

Jupiter Greenhouse Effect Due to Pressure, Not Greenhouse Gases

This post is very interesting. The argument has been that “global warming” will happen on earth just like on Jupiter if atmospheric carbon dioxide is continues to increase. This study refutes that argument.

“Prior work has confirmed the gravito-thermal greenhouse effect on 8 planets including Earth, and why this falsifies the theory of catastrophic man-made global warming. On the basis of this new paper, we find the gravito-thermal greenhouse effect also holds for Jupiter and that the pressure vs. temperature curve satisfies the Poisson Relation of the gravito-thermal greenhouse effect.” click here

Carbon Dioxide Induced Warming Nonexistent for Greenland and Antarctica

An interesting post at the Notrickszone (here).

IPCC Did NOT do Their Homework on Lapse Rate

“Thus, the AGW theory of the IPCC is collapsed due to the lack of parameter sensitivity analysis of the lapse rate for 2xCO2 in the 1DRCM studies with the fixed lase rate assumption of 6.5°K/km for 1xCO2 and 2xCO2.” click here
