The Great Global Warming SwindleFor anyone who caught the Channel 4 doc last night, it made for very stimulating viewing:
For thos who did not, it made the basic hypothesis that climate change is not, nor ever has been driven by CO2.
It said that historically, CO2 mirrored the temperature pattern, but what was not highlighted in previous reports was that there was an 800 year lag in the past between temps rising and CO2 following it.
It said that heightened CO2 was a result of warming, not a cause.
The doc said that the greenhouse effect should have shown warming in the mid to upper troposphere and observatinos did not bear this out and that instead surface warming was observed.
The doc asserted that the sun, and its natural cycle of magnetic field changes was what was driving global warming and not CO2 emissions by humans or natural occurances.
I have to say, it was compelling stuff.
