Calling the Climate-Change Bluff

Written by Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser

The city of Warsaw, Poland, recently hosted the 19th Conference of the Parties (COP-19) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Conference host countries normally “play game,” but not in this case. Both the citizens of Poland and their government revolted.

Essentially, Poland CALLED the global-warming agenda, AKA the climate-change BLUFF.

Poland’s government sacked its Minister of the Environment (and host/chief of COP-19) half way through the conference and the people of Poland decided to give NGO’s like Greenpeace, Sierra Club and 350.org a clear “thumbs down. “ Japan was equally clear and announced a change from their previous Kyoto Protocol based commitment of a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2020 to a mere 3.8%.climate talks

Of course, the facts have been in favor of calling the climate bluff for quite some time already. From the revelations of shady scientists and shoddy science to nature’s failure to adhere to the fictitious predictions made by every single climate model created over the last decade, quite simply, the facts could no longer be hidden.

The Facts

The facts are more than a wee bit different from the proclamations, computer models, dire predictions, and related assertions by much of the green-blinkered media:

  1. Carbon dioxide (CO2) could not possibly provide a warming “blanket” to the earth’s atmosphere. The (relative low) frequency IR radiation emitted by the earth’s surface is entirely taken up by the CO2 below an elevation of 200 m (~500 foot). Therefore, any additional CO2 in the atmosphere above that level is of no consequence.

  2. Most of the CO2 in the atmosphere comes from volcanic emissions. Prior to mankind’s large-scale use of fossil fuels, ALL the CO2 in the atmosphere came from volcanic emissions.

  3. In the Arctic, contrary to common belief, the summer sea-ice extent has been quite stable or growing in recent summers. The observed “anomalies” (brief periods of faster decline or slower growth) were due to ice-breakers plowing the area.

  4. In the Arctic, polar bears are thriving. Today, their numbers are much higher than decades ago.

  5. In the Antarctic, the ice mass has been strongly expanding in recent years.

  6. Penguin colonies in the Antarctic are thriving. Previously unknown colonies have been discovered and others have increased in numbers.

  7. Typhoons (in the Pacific) and hurricanes (in the Atlantic) have been decreasing in recent years. The loss of life and property associated with them is due to increased populations in flood-prone areas.

  8. Typhoon Haiyan was one of many typhoons hitting the Philippines every year. While Haiyan was very strong, it was less of a calamity than predicted and not due to “climate change.”

  9. Globally, temperatures have been declining over nearly two decades. Previous assertions to the contrary were largely based on thermometers influenced by man-made structures.

  10. The earth’s climate is largely controlled by the sun’s radiation. The current and anticipated sun (-spot) activity, i.e. energy received by earth from the sun, will be below normal for the next decades.

In short, COP-19 was a phenomenal COP-OUT. Most unexpected was Poland’s citizens’ and government’s decision to stand up and look at the undeniable facts. They called COP-19’s bluff.

    Humlum and coworkers have shown that the major source of recent increases in atmospheric CO2 is the southern tropical ocean. Warm sea water emits CO2 and cold sea water absorbs it (the solubility pump).
    No doubt volcanic eruptions are another souce, but its magnitude maay be uncertain and highly variable.
