Cosmic Rays and Temperature

I found this interesting item while checking out various websites this evening. The website “How Can People Be So Stupid?” asks a very valid question in their article titled “Where Are Global Warmingistas & Main Stream Media On Reporting That Cosmic Rays May Control Earth’s Temperature?

The author makes some very valid points about this.  Of course I’d probably change the title to “Where are the mainstream media on reporting anything skeptical about global warming at all…ever?” but that’s just me. To get to the heart of the matter (you can go here to read his eloquent rant), the basic premise is…..

First, to put to bead the statement from the warmingistas that CO2 has never been higher, I would like you to look at the following figure which is taken from the “Cosmic rays and climate” lecture notes by Jasper Kirkby of CERN. The full lecture notes can be found here.  This shows CO2 concentrations, along with “error bands”, as well as temperature, over the last 500 million years. (OK, if you believe the earth is only 6000 years old, you might as well stop reading now, since there is no hope for you.) (Don’t worry about the bottom graph, it is what is called a “proxy”, and we will not concern ourselves with it at this time. If you want to learn more about it, go to the video that is posted with my original posting on this subject.)

If you look at the chart below it should be rather obvious what’s been going on with CO2 and temperature (or more like what HASN’T been going on).

(Current) CO2 concentration appears to be almost 0 on the scale of the graph, because it has been almost 8000 ppm in the distant past. The only time that CO2 concentrations were nearly as low as they are now was about 300 million years ago.   So, with one graph we have shown that CO2 has been much higher in the past, and also that there is no discernible correlation between CO2 and temperature.

This is a very good read and yet another nail in the coffin of anthropogenic global warming. (Note: Anthropogenic = man-made = CO2 = Bullshit).

You can read the whole article at the source below. I’d highly recommend it.
