Open Letter to Congress and the President:
Many of us are interested only in determining the influence of human activity on climate. Although the planet stopped warming years ago, demonstrating that human activity has had little, if any, influence on climate, it appears that many of you remain unconvinced. Many have been deceived by those who stand to benefit by continuing to deceive. They benefit by getting government grants to continue to examine the issue. Tens of billions of dollars have been wasted in futile attempts to prove that added greenhouse gases are a major cause of Global Warming and to predict what might happen if the planet continued to warm. Observe that their and your credibility decline as the atmospheric carbon dioxide level continues to rise and the planet continues on its cooling trend.
The IPCC and others who proclaim that the planet is still getting warmer, and that the main cause is increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide, are egregiously wrong. This is demonstrated by publically available measurements. From 2001 through Feb, 2011 the atmospheric carbon dioxide increased by 22.2% of the total increase from 1800 to 2001 while the average global temperature has not increased and the average of the five reporting agencies has been on a declining trend since about 2005 and has been declining steeply since the peak of the last El Nino in about March 2010. The 22.2% CO2 increase is the significant measurement, not the comparatively brief time period.
I am a licensed engineer and have a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering. This gives me the technological ability to credibly research this issue. I have been researching the global climate issue for thousands of hours for over three years. Although a solid background in science and technology is useful in identifying, relating and understanding the involved phenomena, anyone competent with a web-connected computer and a spreadsheet can verify any and all of my findings. Website links to all source data are provided.
