In contradiction to perceived wisdom, the airborne fraction of carbon dioxide hasn't increased during the last five decades, or, indeed, for the last 150 years, claims new research
The findings suggest that estimates of mankind's impact on the environment are more than 80 percent higher than they should be.
To assess whether atmospheric CO2 levels are increasing, Wolfgang Knorr of the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol has re-analyzed available atmospheric carbon dioxide and emissions data since 1850, reports Science Daily
Says Knorr: "Several recent studies have highlighted the possibility that the oceans and terrestrial ecosystems have started loosing part of their ability to sequester a large proportion of the anthropogenic CO2 emissions. This is an important claim, because so far only about 40 percent of those emissions have stayed in the atmosphere, which has prevented additional climate change.
"[My] study re-examines the available atmospheric CO2 and emissions data including their uncertainties. It is shown that with those uncertainties, the trend in the airborne fraction since 1850 has been 0.7 ± 1.4 percent per decade, i.e. close to and not significantly different from zero.
"The analysis further shows that the statistical model of a constant airborne fraction agrees best with the available data if emissions from land use change are scaled down to 82 percent or less of their original estimates. Despite the predictions of coupled climate-carbon cycle models, no trend in the airborne fraction can be found. "
Climate computer models also assume that the airborne CO2 fraction will increase. Knorr's findings seem to suggest that the warmist's claims of an approaching climate Armageddon are somewhat overstated.

Another domino in the global warming hoax has fallen. "It is shown that with those uncertainties, the trend in the airborne fraction since 1850 has been 0.7 ± 1.4% per decade, i.e. close to and not significantly different from zero." Knorr, W. Is the airborne fraction of anthropogenic CO2 emissions increasing? Geophysical Research Letters, 2009; 36 (21): L21710 DOI: 10.1029/2009GL040613.
This study, the climategate scandal, the contradictions of global cooling claims in the 1980's and the obvious political motivations of global warmers show any reasonable person that there is no global warming or that there are serious doubts about it. And if there is global warming, there should be questions if it is anthropogenic (manmade) and if it is something that is bad for us. This new study shows that it is not caused by anthropogenic CO2 as the global warmers claimed. This manmade CO2 theory was the basis of the entire hoax of manmade global warming.
This will not stop the global warming hoax. There are too many politicians and "climatologists" making billions of dollars off this scam. They belong in jail. They will ignore this study, explain it away, or twist it around. It is irrelevant how much proof you can show, they will insist that their way is right. And they will continue to lie.
The mountain of evidence will continue to grow. Just as "global cooling" was disproved 20 years ago, so shall this be disproving. It is just a question of how much money will be lost in the process. The hundreds of billions of dollars spent will be gone and it could have gone to help feed starving people instead of lining the pockets of greedy and dishonest politicians and climatologists. But then they will find some new scare tactic. They will even try to take credit for preventing global cooling despite the fact they have done nothing in reality. They have already taken credit for stopping global cooling in some articles I read. The contradiction does not even appear to faze them.
Despite their arrogance and audacity, we must fight back with the truth and reveal their true motivations and goals. By exposing their lies, we expose their agenda.
