The next time you are faced with a Global Warming Alarmist – dare I say I repeat myself- you may ask them if they have evidence that would suggest their models are accurately reflecting reality.
As Coyote mentions:
The warming from manmade CO2 without positive feedbacks would be about 1.3C per doubling of CO2 concentrations, a fraction of the 3-10C predicted by these climate models. If the climate, like most other long-term stable natural systems, is dominated by negative feedbacks, the sensitivity would be likely less than 1C. Either way, the resulting predicted warming from manmade CO2 over the rest of this century would likely be less than 1 degree C.
Don’t fall for the trap the Left will try to spring on you – namely accusing you of denying climate change. Certainly the climate is changing. And certainly:
- Green house gases cause warming that might not otherwise have taken place
- CO2 is a green house gas
- Man has added to the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere
- It is reasonable to assume that man has warmed the earth to a level that it might not otherwise have been at
It’s not global warming that I deny, it’s the Alarmist nature of the disciples of the religion that I disagree with.
