Global Warming why we are not the cause! by:SEB

Intro

I will be telling you why we as people are not the cause for global warming. We are being told that we are the cause for global warming because of all the Co2 we put in the atmosphere. I will be talking about how all of this is lies and how we are being shown false evidence. We are being told by media that we are the cause for global warming and only we can stop it. Fact is it’s not us and I’ve got the evidence to prove it.

Thoughts(unorganized):

All around were being told that the world is burning up and its all our fault, that all the extra Co2 that we’ve put in the air has caused the temperature to raise greatly. Were being told that before industrial life the world was at one solid temperature and one only! But its all lies its been dressed up as science when really its media making us think that we are the cause of global warming, and were believing it because there’s nothing telling us were not. Were told that since the rise of Co2 in the atmosphere the temperature has been rising, so going on that theory temperature should of sky rocketed around 1940 when the industrial world really boomed, but instead it dropped and not for a year or two but for 4...decades! Most of the temperature rise was from 1900 to 1940 were industrial work was scarce. Now also if C02 was the cause then the that would mean that it was a major greenhouse gas and therefore up in the troposphere the a few thousand meters off the ground the temperature should be warmer then the surface temperature, so from two different tests satellite and good old weather balloon both state that surface temperature is hotter than the troposphere temperature. So why is it that we’re still being told that we are the cause of global warming when Co2 is clearly not the cause after looking at the troposphere and the past, in fact to look further in to the past. The worlds climate has not stayed at one solid temperature for the last 12,000 years off course there’s been much more climate changes just like the one were going through now, ever since the bronze age which for a good 3 millennia a period called the Holocene maximum were temperatures were much higher than they are now. I can’t seem too find any records of anything letting out any extra Co2 emissions oh that’s right, because there were none. So how come this climate change is different from any other. Its just like any other we have just as much a chance of an ice age happening...well not really but my point is what evidence is there that can definitely tell and convince me that we are the cause of global warming because so far everything they have said has been proven wrong.

Basic Facts:

  • The Earth has been going through climate changes for its hole life(4 billion years)
  • We have only been putting extra carbon dioxide in the air for the past 60-70 years
  • The earth has reached higher temperatures for over 4 centuries at a time called the Holocene maximum
  • There is alot more natural Co2 than man made Co2 so why now would it be making any difference
  • The earths Co2 can not possibly be the reason for the uprise in temperature because in there is an 800 year lag were Co2 is following temperature so it cant be the cause if anything temperature is the cause for Co2
  • Based on the theory that man made Co2 is the cause for Global warming than the temperature should of shot straight up in 1940 but instead it dropped
  • Co2 is an incredibly small amount of the earths natural gases its 0.054% and then the Co2 that humans are adding in the atmosphere and it gets even smaller

now notice how the temperature(BLACK) rises around 1900 and at that same time the greenhouses are staying relativly normal. Then when the greenhouse gases the temperature drops. also notice that even though its a bit slow the temperature does follow the solar increase.

Reflections:

I was never interested the least bit in Global warming I didn’t give it a second thought whenever I saw little ads on TV or commercials I just thought “like it’s ever going to affect us". Then I saw An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore. It opened up my eyes I saw that global warming is definitely happening and that we would most definitely be affected. So right after that movie I was DEAD SET on the fact that WE as humans are the cause for global warming. So I went online to do some research and I found a video called The Great Global Warming Swindle. It showed me that we are not the cause for global warming. We were just being fooled by the media. I thought about and I don’t remember seeing any SOLID scientific proof over the last five years and if there was it was proven wrong by The Great Global Warming Swindle. (Which by the way I have a clip of below the snowmen). When I took on this project I thought there would be tons to do with it really, but soon I saw that there is only so much I can do before looking like a complete moron. So I know this page may not be as big and bold and have any experiments, but I believe by taking on a topic like Global Warming and going against what most people think. Putting myself through that challenge I have shown higher level thinking. I am really thankful for this opportunity I learned so much about how Co2 is not at all a major Greenhouse gas and that really global warming has already happened at least twice without our help its just happening again. The ice caps may melt but they WILL freeze again it’s the circle of life in my eyes.

Why we are the cause for global warming:BY: BRADY

Carbon dioxide and other gases warm the surface of the planet naturally by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere. This is a good thing because it keeps our planet habitable. However, by burning fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil and clearing forests we have dramatically increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere and temperatures are rising. Although local temperatures fluctuate naturally, over the past 50 years the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. And experts think the trend is accelerating: the 10 hottest years on record have all occurred since 1990. Scientists say that unless we curb global warming emissions, average U.S. temperatures could be 3 to 9 degrees higher by the end of the century. Global warming is already causing damage in many parts of the United States. In 2002, Colorado, Arizona and Oregon endured their worst wildfire seasons ever. The same year, drought created severe dust storms in Montana, Colorado and Kansas, and floods caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage in Texas, Montana and North Dakota. Since the early 1950s, snow accumulation has declined 60 percent and winter seasons have shortened in some areas of the Cascade Range in Oregon and Washington.The multinational Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) report recently concluded that in Alaska, western Canada, and eastern Russia, average temperatures have increased as much as 4 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit(3 to 4 degrees Celsius)in the past 50 years. The rise is nearly twice the global average.external image 041203095938.jpg

Carbon dioxide


World leaders gathered in Kyoto, Japan, in December 1997 to consider a world treaty restricting emissions of ''greenhouse gases,'' chiefly carbon dioxide (CO2), that are thought to cause ''global warming'' severe increases in Earth's atmospheric and surface temperatures, with disastrous environmental consequences. Predictions of global warming are based on computer climate modeling, a branch of science still in its infancy. The empirical evidence actual measurements of Earth's temperature shows no man-made warming trend. Indeed, over the past two decades, when CO2 levels have been at their highest, global average temperatures have actually cooled slightly.

Indeed, over the past two decades, when CO2 levels have been at their highest, global average temperatures have actually cooled slightly. To be sure, CO2 levels have increased substantially since the Industrial Revolution, and are expected to continue doing so. It is reasonable to believe that humans have been responsible for much of this increase. But the effect on the environment is likely to be benign. Greenhouse gases cause plant life, and the animal life that depends upon it, to thrive. What mankind is doing is liberating carbon from beneath the Earth's surface and putting it into the atmosphere, where it is available for conversion into living organisms
Watch this to understand what global warming is about


Carbon Dioxide Emitted from Cars

About 20% of U.S carbon dioxide emissions comes from the burning of gasoline in internal-combustion engines of cars and light trucks (minivans, sport utility vehicles, pick-up trucks, and jeeps).US Emissions Inventory 2004 [[http://yosemite.epa.gov/OAR/globalwarming.nsf/UniqueKeyLookup/RAMR5WNMK2/$File/04executivesummary.pdf|Vehicles]] with poor gas mileage contribute the most to global warming. For example, according to the E.P.A's 2000 Fuel Economy Guide, a new Dodge Durango sports utility vehicle (with a 5.9 liter engine) that gets 12 miles per gallon in the city will emit an estimated 800 pounds of carbon dioxide over a distance of 500 city miles. In other words for each gallon of gas a vehicle consumes, 19.6 pounds of carbon dioxide are emitted into the air. [21] A new Honda Insight that gets 61 miles to the gallon will only emit about 161 pounds of carbon dioxide over the same distance of 500 city miles. Sports utility vehicles were built for rough terrain, off road driving in mountains and deserts. When they are used for city driving, they are so much overkill to the environment. If one has to have a large vehicle for their family, station wagons are an intelligent choice for city driving, especially since their price is about half that of a sports utility. Inasmuch as SUV's have a narrow wheel base in respect to their higher silhouette, they are four times as likely as cars to rollover in an accident tmes used as an anaesthetic.


Nitrous oxide


Another greenhouse gas is Nitrous oxide (N2O), a colourless, non-flammable gas with a sweetish odour, commonly known as "laughing gas", and sometimes used as an anaesthetic. Nitrous oxide is naturally produced by oceans and rainforests. Man-made sources of nitrous oxide include nylon and nitric acid production, the use of fertilisers in agriculture, cars with catalytic converters and the burning of organic matter. Nitrous oxide is broken down in the atmosphere by chemical reactions that involve sunlight.


Methane


While carbon dioxide is the principal greenhouse gas, methane is second most important. According to the IPCC, Methane is more than 20 times as effective as CO2 at trapping heat in the atmosphere. US Emissions Inventory 2004 Levels of atmospheric methane have risen 145% in the last 100 years. [18] Methane is derived from sources such as rice paddies, bovine flatulence, bacteria in bogs and fossil fuel production. Most of the world’s rice, and all of the rice in the United States, is grown on flooded fields. When fields are flooded, anaerobic conditions develop and the organic matter in the soil decomposes, releasing CH4 to the atmosphere, primarily through the rice plants.
