The real question comes when there is overwhelming reliable information proving X, but because of personal bias, one is motivated to surf the Internet for any scrap of data, no matter how dubious, to cling to a discredited idea.
This describes climate change deniers far more accurately than the rest of us.
That's why, Mr Science, when it is very cold outside the humidity is generally lower.
I never said CO2 was a pollutant. I said TOO much CO2 in the atmosphere contributes significantly to global warming. O2 and H2O are not "pollutants" either but too much of either will kill you.
Then please explain the following...
The history of CO2 and temperature shows that there is no correlation.
Ask your local warmer:
1. Why was CO2 15 times higher than now in the Ordovician-Silurian glaciation?
2. Why were both methane and CO2 higher than now in the Permian glaciation?
3. Why was CO2 5 times higher than now in the Cretaceous-Jurassic glaciation?
The process of removing CO2 from the atmosphere via the oceans has led to carbonate deposition (i.e. CO2 sequestration).
The atmosphere once had at least 25 times the current CO2 content, we are living at a time when CO2 is the lowest it has been for billions of years, we continue to remove CO2 via carbonate sedimentation from the oceans and the oceans continue to be buffered by water-rock reactions (as shown by Walker et al. 1981).
The literature on this subject is large yet the warmers chose to ignore this literature.
Much of the sunlight that reaches the earth is reflected back to space by the surface, oceans and particularly the polar ice caps. Additional CO2 causes some of that reflected energy to be absorbed in the atmosphere raising atmospheric temperatures. As more and more CO2 and other greenhouse gasses are pumped into the atmosphere the planet slowly loses the ability to reflect heat back into space. As atmospheric temperatures rise the evaporation of water adds to the cloud cover but the cloud cover acts to retain heat rather than reflect it and the temperature continues to rise despite increasing storms. The increased cloud cover does, however, cause massive deforestation as lack of sunlight stops the photosynthesis process. The lack of vegetation denies animals at all levels of the food chain and the global starvation of all large animals begins. As food stocks dwindle and more large animals starve insects and the surface becomes dominated by insects and small rodents. As plants die off the absorption of CO2 and production of O2 slows hastening the heating process and the killing of all sentient life. Eventually the atmosphere becomes little more than steam and....
We become Venus.
that's the cycle you're trying to create.
The study of clouds, where they occur, and their characteristics, play a key role in the understanding of climate change. Low, thick clouds primarily reflect solar radiation and cool the surface of the Earth. High, thin clouds primarily transmit incoming solar radiation; at the same time, they trap some of the outgoing infrared radiation emitted by the Earth and radiate it back downward, thereby warming the surface of the Earth. Whether a given cloud will heat or cool the surface depends on several factors, including the cloud's altitude, its size, and the make-up of the particles that form the cloud. The balance between the cooling and warming actions of clouds is very close although, overall, averaging the effects of all the clouds around the globe, cooling predominates...
