|The Greenhouse Effect|
Some actual facts and figures about greenhouse gases and the relative amounts produced by the natural world and human race
The politicians' case for a human cause for climate change is based on propaganda, not evidence, because facts can get in the way of raising new taxes. Here are some actual facts:
Q. What causes a greenhouse effect?
Q. Is Earth experiencing the greenhouse effect?
Q. How much of the gases which cause a greenhouse effect is produced by human activity, e.g. farming, manufacturing, power generation and transportation?
Q. Which gases in the atmosphere cause the greenhouse effect?
Q. We hear so much about carbon dioxide; is it really the head bad guy as far as the greenhouse effect is concerned?
|Greenhouse gas||% Global Warming Contribution||% Natural Source||% Human Source|
|CFCs, misc. gases||0.072|
|The figures in the above table will probably look quite different from the ones trotted out by the people making a living out of the global warming industry, 'scientists' and politicians alike. This is because reputable climatologists always include water vapour in their calculations while special interest groups and many news reporters leave water vapor out 'because it is customary for them to do so'.
If water is left out of the calculations, the total human contribution to a greenhouse effect rises from 0.28% to 5.53%, which gives dishonest politicians [Tautology? Ed.] out to raise taxation levels 20 times more room to wriggle and bamboozle their voters.
The Kyoto Protocol calls for mandatory carbon dioxide reductions of 30% from developed countries. If this requirement were to be extended to every country in the world, it would reduce the total human greenhouse contribution from carbon dioxide by about 0.035%. This is a negligible amount and well within the year-to-year variations of the natural world.
A final thought . . .
The carbon conmen blame the fall in global temperatures between 1940 and 1970 on the effect of soot particles, aerosols and other pollutants in the atmosphere reflecting sunlight before it could be absorbed by greenhouse gases and causing global cooling.
