Carbon Dioxide May Be Our SaviorSome readers might believe that the Anthropogenic Global Warming hysteria is dying down, but nothing could be further from the truth. While the theory, if ever there was one, of AGW has been conclusively debunked, the true believers are continuing to propagate rules and legislation worldwide that will mitigate CO2 emission. Many otherwise clear thinkers may have decided that this is not important, but it could be crucially dangerous to human life on this planet. Just check out this chart of historical global temperatures as they relate to "greenhouse" gases:
Note the periodicity of the temperature declines, which proceed into ice ages. That means ice over New York and Seattle, and much of Europe, miles deep. The next ice age is overdue. Now look at the current period. There is the proof that the current warm period has lasted longer than the others, and this runs concurrent with industrialization. Could it be that Carbon Dioxide is the only thing holding back the next ice age?
Now, I am not claiming that I know everything there is to know on this subject, but I do suggest that the theory I just expressed has as much chance of being true as any other. And we must remember that this is ice core data, which may not be consistent for the latest readings. Just more food for thought for any zero base thinker who is still seeking truth in this jumbled issue.
