President Obama claims that carbon dioxide CO2, causes climate change and threatens public health and that “cutting carbon pollution will help keep our air and water clean and protect our kids.”
President Obama’s statements couldn’t be further from the truth. Far from being a “pollutant, carbon dioxide is the elixir of life, without it there would be no life, human, animal and most of all plants, especially food plants. Nature drives climate, not mankind.
Satellite data show atmosphere water vapor to have been relatively constant over the past 30 years. The idea that atmosphere level of CO2, a trace gas is controlling weather and water cycle is improbable. The idea that mankind’s relatively tiny CO2 emissions impact the weather cycle is preposterous. This whole CO2 tax thing is just another way to obtain more funding.
Editor’s Note: The scientific consensus that rising levels of CO2 will affect the climate is overwhelming, according to NASA. A survey of 928 peer-reviewed abstracts on the subject “global climate change” published between 1993 and 2003 shows that not a single paper rejected the consensus position that global warming is man caused. The study was done by a University of San Diego researcher and published in Science. A follow-up study by a Skeptical Science team of researchers reviewed more than 12,000 peer-reviewed abstracts on the subjects of “global warming” and “global climate change” published between 1991 and 2011 found that of the papers taking a position on the cause of global warming, more than 97 percent agreed that humans are causing it.
