New Study Now Claims We Humans Heat The Atmosphere Just By Exhaling

New Study Now Claims We Humans Heat The Atmosphere Just By Exhaling

“Where hydrocarbon chains (food types) are consumed by humans and turned into CH4 [methane] … global warming potential is no longer neutral, and human respiration has a net warming effect on the atmosphere.”  – Prada et al., 2023 Image Source pexels.com (stock photo) According to a new study, humans “contribute to global warming” by exhaling […]

New Study Upends Modeling, Finds Earth's Rocks Are A Net Source Of CO2 Rivaling Volcanic Emissions

New Study Upends Modeling, Finds Earth’s Rocks Are A Net Source Of CO2 Rivaling Volcanic Emissions

For decades rock weathering has been thought to be a net sink in carbon budget models. New research finds rock emissions are a large net source of CO2 to the atmosphere. A few years ago Buesseler et al., 2020 discovered that all of the climate modelers’ previous estimates of global ocean carbon uptake are substantially […]

New Study: The Rising-CO2-Causes-Warming Perception Not Supported By Real-World Observation

New Study: The Rising-CO2-Causes-Warming Perception Not Supported By Real-World Observation

“Oddly, while the principal direction suggested by the models is ΔIn[CO₂] → ΔT, the explained variance is impressively low (10-15%) in this direction and impressively high (reaching 90%) in the opposite direction, at ΔT → ΔIn[CO₂].”  − Koutsoyiannis et al., 2023 One of the most basic concepts in physics is that causes precede effects and effects […]

Now It's Claimed Anthropogenic Global Warming Is Driven By Aerosol Emissions Reductions, Not CO2

Now It’s Claimed Anthropogenic Global Warming Is Driven By Aerosol Emissions Reductions, Not CO2

An increase in effective radiative forcing from human activity is now said to be mostly driven by a decline in aerosol pollution, superseding the effects of CO2 emissions. The majority of an alleged acceleration in anthropogenic global warming in the 21st century “is driven by changes in the the aerosol [effective radiative forcing] trend, due […]

Scientists: Enhancing Earth's Surface Reflectiveness 32x More Effective Than Eliminating GHG Emissions

Scientists: Enhancing Earth’s Surface Reflectiveness 32x More Effective Than Eliminating GHG Emissions

Adding reflectors to roofs and pavements and similar strategies could globally reflect 87 W/m² more incoming solar radiation than is reflected on an annual basis currently, cooling the surface. In contrast, the sum of the accumulated annual anthropogenic radiative forcing from greenhouse gases (GHG) since 1750 is 2.72 W/m². A new study analyzes the effectiveness […]

New Research Applying Scientific Method Shows The Perception CO2 Causes Global Warming 'Can Be Excluded'

New Research Applying Scientific Method Shows The Perception CO2 Causes Global Warming ‘Can Be Excluded’

Instead of focusing on probabilistic percentages and constructed correlations between two events in efforts to determine potential causality, 4 scientists have revisited the requisite conditions for causality in applying the scientific method. They find “the common perception that increasing CO2 causes increased [temperature] can be excluded because it violates the necessary condition for this causal […]

Continued Use Of Combustion Vehicles Leads To 'Much Lower' Lifetime CO2 Emissions Than Driving EVs

Continued Use Of Combustion Vehicles Leads To ‘Much Lower’ Lifetime CO2 Emissions Than Driving EVs

A new study finds “the total CO2 emissions will be much lower with continued use of the old but operational combustion car instead of buying a new electric one.” Image Source: Neugebauer et al., 2022 It has long been assumed that replacing internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles with electric vehicles (EV) will lead to dramatically […]

Radiosonde Temps Show Northern Hemisphere, Tropical Warming Has Mostly Paused Since 1998

Radiosonde Temps Show Northern Hemisphere, Tropical Warming Has Mostly Paused Since 1998

A new study indicates nearly all the Northern Hemisphere and Tropical warming in the last 40 years occurred by the late 1990s. CO2 has risen by about 50 ppm since 1998 (367 to 418 ppm). Interestingly, upper-air measurements of temperature from balloon-borne sensor radiosonde data, shown below in the image from a new study (Madonna […]

EU's 'Carbon Neutral' Policy Of Burning Forests For Fuel Spews 28% More CO2 Emissions Than Burning Coal

EU’s ‘Carbon Neutral’ Policy Of Burning Forests For Fuel Spews 28% More CO2 Emissions Than Burning Coal

“Burning woody biomass increases atmospheric CO2 levels for decades. Burning forest biomass for power generation emits more CO2 per-unit of final energy than burning fossil fuels, including coal.”  – Bloomer et al., 2022 Image Source: IGSD It is scientifically well known that (a) “the carbon emission from wood fuel is bigger by half than that […]

For 40% Of The EU And US To Drive EVs, 56,000-70,000 Km² Of Land Must Be Cleared For Wind Turbines

For 40% Of The EU And US To Drive EVs, 56,000-70,000 Km² Of Land Must Be Cleared For Wind Turbines

A new study warns that “a massive expansion of impervious surfaces” is an inevitable consequence of having electric vehicles reach a 40% share of citizens’ driving needs.  A land area the size of Croatia (in the European Union) or West Virginia (in the United States) must be completely covered with wind turbines to meet EV-charging […]

What's The Point? In 2020 China Built The Equivalent Of More Than One New Large Coal Plant Per Week

What’s The Point? In 2020 China Built The Equivalent Of More Than One New Large Coal Plant Per Week

There has been a sustained global-scale effort to reduce coal power capacity in recent years. Meanwhile, China’s government has been busy loosening restrictions on coal plant construction to power its post-pandemic economy. In 2020, China built over three times as much new coal power capacity as all other countries in the world combined – with […]

NASA Pushes Propaganda For Kids: Casts Greenhouse Gases As Superheroes That 'Turn Into Tiny Heaters'

NASA Pushes Propaganda For Kids: Casts Greenhouse Gases As Superheroes That ‘Turn Into Tiny Heaters’

NASA tries to appeal to kids in claiming greenhouse gas molecules are “tiny heaters” that act “exactly how” the windows that prevent heat escape in a real greenhouse work. Observations show this is propaganda. Image Source: NASA’s Climate Kids and Earth Observatory In claiming superhero-like greenhouse gases such as CO2 and water vapor act “exactly how” […]
