"think your issue iis that we don't buy into false science like "global warming", which has been understood now to be false, and has been since renamed to "Climate Change". It's a moving target meant to confuse people into looking at platforms that are not as important as things like prolife and profamily issues "
You've just proved my point.
Time for a quick lesson on basic science:
- Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere traps heat
- More carbon dioxide = more heat trapped in the atmosphere
- Result = unnatural levels of heat, and thus "global warming" or "climate change"
- some sources of carbon dioxide going into the atmosphere: automobiles, factories, coal plants
See, I know my science and I'm not going to believe a bunch of pseudoscience spouted by oil lobbyists. Real science is actually very simple, but what those who try to distort it do so by making it seem more complext than it is.
When one states a premise that is valid, the conclusion has to be logical as well. There can't be glaring holes of missing premises for one to call it a "conclusion" that is logical. Liberals thrive on making arguments like this, just to confuse those who don't have the facts and realize, "Well that doesn't make sense, but I guess he ought to know."
Carbon dioxide traps 'heat', but why don't you tell everyone how much carbon dioxide it would take to raise a temperature to any measurable degree? That premise is conveniently missing, along with the improbability of that ever happening. OK, but, I'll mention it here:
Greenhouse gases consist of only 3% of the atmosphere with 97% of these gases being made up of CO2, CH4, Ozone and N2O*. (*CO2 constitutes about 0.037% of the atmosphere. )
Where is the sun, and the clouds in all these "global warming" assertions? Answer: no where.
The sun plays the biggest part in any climate warming, incidentally. These radiation changes are cyclical and changing all the time. (See: ice age.)
CO2 levels move up and down AFTER the temperature has done so, and thus are the RESULT OF, NOT THE CAUSE of warming. Geological field work in recent sediments confirms this causal relationship. There is solid evidence that, as temperatures move up and down naturally and cyclically through solar radiation, orbital and galactic influences, the warming surface layers of the earth's oceans expel more CO2 as a result.
You also forgot to mention that despite the HUGE surge in carbon dioxide level SOURCES (not the overall levels) emitted from unnatural sources, including homes/apartments/ condos (which, by the way, emit 2 to 3 times the amount of carbon dioxide that any automobile), yet global temperatures fell for four decades after 1940.
We've been sold a bag of goods that CO2 is dangerous to the environment, when in fact, plants require CO2 for food to survive. Plants, in turn, give off oxygen. I guess, maybe we all could hold our breath, stop wearing clothing that is made in factors, live in tents (or at least not in buildings with gas or electric heating), walk to work, and turn off our computers --- just as start.
