Rational Thinking About Irrational Numbers

 

 

 

 

” I am drawing this reference from this article from someone who I look up to and admire – Dr. Roy Spencer.

  In the last 100 years, the amount of CO2 in the air has increased from three molecules per 10,000 molecules of air, to four molecules out of 10,000 molecules of air.

  Which means we are being asked to believe the increase of one molecule of CO2 out of 10,000 molecules of air in the last 100 years is causing catastrophic climate change that threatens mankind.

  This is all fascinating to me, given Secretary of State John Kerry’s comments on the immense threat of a catastrophe based on out of control climate, when we have groups like ISIS and Hamas running around.

  But let’s really put this whole CO2 scare (scam) in perspective, okay?

  Here is the infamous hockey stick graphic (see above), the last 50 years of warming based on the most reliable temperature measurements versus tree rings that decided to show cooling instead of warming. This, of course, has stirred up the angst of Dr. Michael Mann when people suggested there was something very wrong with switching the way one measured temperatures after 950 years when that way no longer agreed.

  Now here is the real hockey stick, the increase in GDP per capita since the coming fossil fuel age really took off over the last 100 years. “

 

 

” That is a real correlation. No switching measurement horses midstream. During the time of the increase of one molecule of CO2 per 10,000, earth’s per capita income went up. And think about how many more people there are now against 1900.

  But let’s look more closely at this in the U.S., since we naturally want to lead the world to a brighter tomorrow. “
