The Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) cult is frustrated that they haven’t been able to convince enough people in the United States to believe their thesis lie that humans (with their lust for fossil fuels) are altering Earth’s climate and that if we don’t stop we’ll die from either rising oceans, drought, heat, snowstorms, hurricanes, earthquakes or ocean acidification. They’ve tried Global Cooling, Global Warming and Climate Change but no matter how much feces they throw on the wall, nothing seems to stick.
The latest gathering of AGW cult members (called COP18) was an even bigger disgrace than the last one. Not only did they leave Doha with zero binding agreements, a portion of the IPCC’s 5th Assessment Report (AR5) was leaked and it showed the AGW computer models were even more flawed than anyone expected.
This latest AGW failure gave me an opportunity to update my charts showing global temperatures as they relate to global atmospheric CO2 concentrations.
Here is the graph of atmospheric CO2 measurements as gathered by the Mauna Loa observatory and you can see that the CO2 levels are continuing to increase.
Let’s now look at these same temperature graphs but starting with 1998 and you can easily see that we are still in a period of flat temperature growth (I’ve added trend lines with the equation for extra emphasis).
Furthermore, if increasing atmospheric concentrations of CO2 cause increased global temperatures then we should see a linearly increasing line when we plot global temperature anomaly (delta from a baseline period) on the Y-axis and atmospheric CO2 concentration on the X-axis. From the graph below, you can see that something happened when CO2 concentrations increased to around the 370 ppm point to stop that upward trend and this inflection point raises questions. Is some other variable(s) counter acting any warming caused by CO2? Has the warming effect of CO2 reached a limit?
As with my previous updates, I’ll leave you with this. You can choose to believe the emotionally charge rhetoric of the AGW cult or you can choose to believe the data. Let’s hope the American people and those we elect continue to side with the data.
