The Great CO2 Global Warming Hoax
The claim by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that carbon dioxide is causing global warming is bogus science based on models developed around 2000 (the old garbage in-garbage out scenario). See the graph developed from actual data by meteorologist Joseph D'Aleo; even a non-scientist can see there is absolutely no correlation between the concentration of atmospheric CO2 and the earth's temperature.
CO2 is not a pollutant, it is part of the animal-plant life cycle, without it, plant life would not exist on earth. Further, increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases plant growth, which is a very good thing. Further, the amount of anthropogenic carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that was emitted by man is around 3% of the total. In 2008, the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere was 385 ppmv (parts per million by volume).
Therefore, man's total anthropogenic contribution is only 12 ppmv, a miniscule amount and if man produced no CO2 at all, the amount in the atmosphere would only drop back to the level we had in 2002-2003.
