Twenty-Two Inconvenient Truths That Debunk the Global Warming Hoax

Eco-authoritarian Al Gore has his so-called inconvenient truth. Watts Up With That counters with 22 inconvenient truths, which are all the more inconvenient for oligarchical collectivists because they are actually true. Examples:

• The Mean Global Temperature has been stable since 1997.
• 57% of the cumulative anthropic emissions since the beginning of the Industrial revolution have been emitted since 1997.

We could stop right there. Those two alone debunk the hoax. But let’s have a few more, even if it’s overkill:

• The amount of CO2 of the air from anthropic emissions is today no more than 6% of the total CO2 in the air.
• The lifetime of CO2 molecules in the atmosphere is about 5 years instead of the 100 years said by IPCC.
• In some geological periods the CO2 content of the air has been up to 20 times today’s content, and there has been no runaway temperature increase!
• The maximum surface of the Antarctic ice-pack has been increasing every year since we have satellite observations.
• The trace gases absorb the radiation of the surface and radiate at the temperature of the air which is, at some height, most of the time slightly lower that of the surface. The trace-gases cannot “heat the surface“, according to the second principle of thermodynamics which prohibits heat transfer from a cooler body to a warmer body.
• The temperatures have always driven the CO2 content of the air, never the reverse. Nowadays the net increment of the CO2 content of the air follows very closely the inter-tropical temperature anomaly.
• The forecasts of the “climate models” are diverging more and more from the observations.
• As said by IPCC in its TAR (2001) “we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.”
• Last but not least the IPCC is neither a scientific organization nor an independent organization: the summary for policy makers, the only part of the report read by international organizations, politicians and media is written under the very close supervision of the representative of the countries and of the non-governmental pressure groups. The governing body of the IPCC is made of a minority of scientists almost all of them promoters of the environmentalist ideology, and a majority of state representatives and of non-governmental green organizations.

You can see why warmists resort to silencing dissent. Objective reality has never been a friend to socialists.

Put all 22 inconvenient truths in your pipe and smoke them, Al. Don’t worry about the carbon emissions; they obviously are not a problem.
