Carbon Dioxide Emissions

NUCLEAR POWER BECKONS AS EMISSIONS CLIMB

ADOPT CO2 FREE NUCLEAR ENERGY OR REDUCE POPULATION Our quality of life and our population growth could not have been achieved without Fossil Fuels but scientists now say we must find an alternative power source because increasing carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of coal and natural gas is causing dangerous global warming. In the […]

WIND TURBINES USE ELECTRICITY FROM THE GRID

ELECTRICITY FROM THE GRID IS NOT ACCOUNTED FOR IN THEIR OUTPUT FIGURES Coal, gas, thermal, hydro and nuclear power stations have a life span of 45+ years that can be easily extended if maintained properly. Solar and wind turbines have a life span of 10 to 20 years. Any cost analysis would quickly determine that […]

RECORD CO2 LEVEL DESPITE WORLD IN LOCKDOWN

CARBON DIOXIDE CONCENTRATIONS HAVE INCREASED DESPITE A PREDICTED FALL It is early days, but their is no indication that the current lock down of the world’s economies have resulted in a reduction of global carbon dioxide concentrations, in fact, after only eleven days into May (at 417.16 ppm) they have increased by one part per […]

RAIN FOREST DISCOVERED BELOW ANTARCTICA ICE

HIGHER LEVELS OF CARBON DIOXIDE FOLLOWED HOTTER TEMPERATURES The Mid-Cretaceous era was the heyday of the dinosaurs but was also the warmest period in the last 149 million years, with temperatures in the tropics as high as 35 degrees Celsius and sea levels 170 metres higher than today. Even during months of darkness, swampy temperate […]

NO LINK BETWEEN EMISSIONS AND TEMPERATURE

The complete elimination of all fossils in the US immediately would only restrict any increase in world temperature by less than one tenth of one degree Celsius by 2050 and by less than one fifth of one degree Celsius by 2100, according to MAGICC,  the Model for Assessment of Greenhouse gas Induced by Climate Change, […]

MANN’S HOCKEY STICK ALTERED CLIMATE HISTORY

MEDIEVAL WARMING PERIOD AND THE LITTLE ICE AGE HAD TO GO The problem for the Climate Scientists, the  IPCC and the supporters of AGW, was that  they they had to prove that the current phase of warming was unnatural, unique and unprecedented. If a similar or greater warming period had occurred in the past such […]

OXYGEN-FUEL-HEAT KEY ELEMENTS OF BUSH FIRES

Wind also has a strong effect on the heat of a fire because it works like the bellows in a Blacksmith’s forge, blowing more oxygen into the fire, just like in the old days when people would use an old newspaper as a fan to get the kindling in the old wood stove going to […]

THE DOOMSDAY CLOCK EVER CLOSER TO MIDNIGHT

THE DOOMSDAY CLOCK IS WITHIN ONE HUNDRED SECONDS OF MIDNIGHT According to the United Nations the greatest level of peril to humanity since its creation in 1947 is the threat posed by climate change and the growing nuclear threat. On climate, two major UN summits fell dismally short of the action required to limit the […]

POPULATION GROWTH BEGAN WITH FOSSIL FUELS

AS GOES FOSSIL FUELS AS GOES HUMANITY To a first approximation, everything we’ve done since 1900, including agriculture, has been the result of our use of fossil fuels. The biophysical driver of fossil fuel energy transcends all political boundaries and philosophies. Fossil fuels have supplied 89% of the total primary energy used throughout the world […]

AGREEMENT ON PRE-INDUSTRIAL TEMPERATURES?

“ANTHROPOGENIC WARMING NOW ABOUT ONE DEGREE ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL LEVELS” But what if global temperatures exceed the tipping point for one or two years and then drop away like they have in the past, just as they had during the thirty nine year cooling period that took place between 194o-1979, despite a rapid increase in GHG […]
