For those who want to keep an open mind on global warming, or feel there is some truth to it and its association with CO2, the following plots may be helpful.
Note that there were many periods when the climate had become warmer than it is today without man generated CO2. Of course, man did come along, and the cave man did breathe and build fires. And in recent years as man’s industrial CO2 vastly increased, the climate has cooled however.
These plots are from the March 2009 research study, Proposed NCEE Comments on Draft Technical Support Document for Endangerment Analysis for Greenhouse Gas Emissions under the Clean Air Act. This is the very study that the EPA tried to suppress. (See “The EPA Silences a Climate Skeptic” by Kimberley A. Strassel)
It is a flat contradiction of the mantra of the Obama Administration and supporting Democrats. It undercuts their attempt at the super regulation of not only industry but every American. Their Cap and Trade global warming bill barely passed in the House. But pass it did, and is now before the Senate. The size of this breathtaking power grab has no counterpart in our history. And those seeking it will not give up this lust easily.
This is not just another step toward an authoritarian government, it is a gigantic leap.
