Climate Change Caused by CO2 – Is it True?

The climate debate has become hotter than ever. There are many Internet forums where supporters and opponents of carbon induced global warming incessantly bombard each other with arguments. It has become a jammed trench warfare. Is that because both sides have not included the ultimate driver of climate change?

What is Climate?

Where is climate actually made of? Let’s see. Temperature, humidity, wind speed, rainfall, and sunny hours give a good indication of what climate actually is. When the patterns of these five variables permanently change on a significant scale we could speak of a changing climate. Is this ever done properly on a global scale? No, never. It’s because earth’s climate system is an amazing complex system, and still far beyond the reach of human comprehension.

Is our climate really changing? And if that is so why could it be changing?

Own Research Versus Copy-Paste Believes

It is widely believed, also in the climate change discussions, that we can control the climate like in our cars by reducing CO2 emissions. But a glimpse on the historical data shows us that the temperatures changed constantly over the history. Who or what made this CO2 a few hundreds of thousands of years ago? Or is CO2 the effect and not the cause? Because that would explain more then vice versa.

Is our climate changing? And when that appears to be the case, what is the cause? Are we able to find out ourselves what is really going on? Yes, we can. But that requires a lot of work. Not many people are willing to do that for just a song.

Northern Versus Southern Hemisphere

The Relation Between CO2 and Climate Change

The relation between CO2 and temperature is obvious. Whether we look at recent records, or at ice core data, the relation is always present.

Fig. 3: The amount of sun spots and the Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) show a clear relation. But sun spots can only account for temperature swings up to plus/minus 1 degree Celsius.

What can we say more than the simple conclusion that CO2 is responsible for climbing temperatures? But is that conclusion really so simple? The relations are so obvious that only a fool dares to say that CO2 is not responsible for climate change.

Some cases of cause and effect are simple and obvious: does asbestos cause cancer, or does cancer causes asbestos? Because asbestos preceded the cancer, it is the cause.

But not all cases are so obvious. Does CO2 cause climate change or does climate change cause CO2?

Another case of cause and effect; are the wheels of a car responsible for the turning of the steering wheel or is it vice versa? There might be some odd cases where former situation counts. The steering mechanism is so tightly connected to eachother, that if we wouldn’t know better, we would have a very hard time to find out objectively what is the cause and what the effect. The tolerance in the system, when we change direction would be the only way to find out the cause.

This is called hysteresis.

The thing that lags behind would be ipso facto the effect. Grasping this principle is crucial, also for our climate.

Fig. 4: The relation between CO2 and temperature change is obvious. Denying there is a relation equals to stupidity. But the real question must be; is CO2 the cause of temperature change or is it the effect? 

The Elephant in the Room: CO2 Lags Behind

If we analyse the data by zooming in we see that CO2 lags behind on temperatures. Who knows that? The climate scientists know about it, but ignore this problem stubbornly. It is the elephant in the room.

Earth’s climate system is a feedback system. There are causes and there are effects. We must distinguish these two to understand the working of such complicated mechanisms.

When the alleged cause is lagging behind we cannot say it is the effect. So, when you want to make something responsible as a cause, but that “thing” is lagging behind, we have clearly looking at the effect and at the cause.

We could concoct something unimaginably complicated system in order to fake CO2 as the effect. But why would we do that? Only scientists with a false agenda do these kind of things.

To become aware of the fact that CO2 is lagging behind you must zoom in on the data.

It is crucial to grasp that if you want to know which is causing what, you need much data where the direction changes, like the graph below. The lag between input and output is called hysteresis.

In the graph below there is not one single example where CO2 is not lagging behind on changes of temperature. The odds for that correlation to be coincidental is 2.33×10-10 or 0.00000000233%. We can say with 100% certainty that CO2 is NOT responsible for climate change, hence it is the effect which correlates with changing temperatures.

Temperature Leads CO2 by an Average of About 2,000 Years

Reasons Why Temperatures Increase in Urbanized Zones

About 85% of the measuring stations are on land, while land covers just about 33% of the planet. It is not difficult to see that when we use these data we introduce major errors when we try to calculate an average global temperature.

About 50% of the stations which are used to measure global temperature are situated on airports. Many of these stations are incorrectly located, which means they collect heat from the exhaust of airplanes or from the tarmac runway. Since the air traffic has increased, the heat collection by the sensors from the jet exhausts increases as well. The short, intense heat bursts of the engines accumulate to serious errors in many of the measurements.

Most other stations are located in expanding urbanized areas. The measurements are affected by growing traffic and growing heat radiation of buildings over the last decennials. The explosive growth of air conditioners on buildings added an enormous heat source to cities that also influenced the measurements of urban situated weather stations.

The measurements from some of the stations in large urbanized areas have to be corrected by other nearby remote stations before they can be used to present a global warming map. And even if we do this, we still present only the temperatures at ground level. We have no idea what happens high up in the atmosphere, and deep down in the oceans.

How Accurate Are the Temperature Measurements?

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the amount of weather stations dropped

Fig. 6: There is a striking relation between the dropping amount of weather stations and the global rising temperature. After the collapse of the USSR about half of the cold stations fell into disuse, and so the data as well.

dramatically from about 12,000 in 1990 to about 6,000 stations in 1995. In the same period the alleged global temperature started to rise like a rocket taking off.

  • Cause: the “cold” stations were gone from the statistics. Mainly the warm urbanized stations remained.
  • Effect: the statistics started to present a distorted picture of the global temperatures.

Recently a far better way of collecting data has come into use: Remote Sensing Systems, or shortly RSS. Satellites gather data over large areas by using microwave sensors. This data is much more reliable and much better to process than the old fashioned weather stations where most of the climate models are still based on.

If you don’t trust the results presented here, you can verify it yourself at the site of Remote Sensing Systems.

Important to note is that RSS successfully monitored the temperatures of the whole atmosphere, but it suddenly stopped to gather data in 2015 after the budgets were cut by NASA. RSS as a more reliable tool to observe the climatic system did NOT support the false agenda of climate change driven by CO2. That’s something to think about…

The Atmosphere as a WHOLE is Cooling Down

Over the last two decades is the atmosphere as a whole unmistakeably cooling down. The whole atmosphere cooled down 0.2°C over the last 20 years. It is just a matter of time before the troposphere looses its warmth to the stratosphere.

The greenhouse gases may trap partially the collected warmth in the troposphere, but when the temperature difference (ΔT) between the lower and higher atmosphere increases, the troposphere will cool down. The cause: the second law of thermodynamics (energy flows from hot to cold) is much stronger than the greenhouse effect.

The CO2 levels will still rise for the next decades to come, while the temperature curves of the ground stations will level off. Many people will start to realize they are lie upon by the scientific community and the environmental groups. Questions start to rise: who is working for who and who is in charge of this false agenda?

The Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO)

A fairly unknown phenomenon in the climate discussion is the PDO cycle, which offers a

short-term (<60 yrs) explanation for the small temperature variations (and so for the release or absorption of CO2 by the oceans).

The Pacific Ocean covers a whopping 33% of earth’s surface. Even the minutest cooling or warming of this vast ocean has colossal impact on the release or absorption of CO2. That also explains why CO2 is lagging behind on the temperatures as shown above.

The most likely driver of the PDO are the Bretagnon cycles that oscillates over the much larger Halstatt cycles. Both these cycles are Sun cycles.

What else is the best candidate for the temperature changes than the Sun itself?

Midterm Hallstatt cycles and Short-term Bretagnon Wave Oscillation

Fig. 10: The Hallstatt cycles and the Bretagnon wave cycles offer the best explanation of the PDO cycles. PDO at its turn causes absorption and release of CO2 of the oceans.

Where Does All the CO2 Come From?

The increase of CO2 from 290 ppm to about 400 ppm over the last 100 years is caused by the warming of the oceans. The oceans contain about 98% of all the carbon in the biosphere. The release of CO2 is partially caused by the above mentioned sun cycles, and by the rebound effect of the last (little) ice age, which was in fact a crustal deformation.

What many people don’t know is that especially seawater is able to dissolve huge amounts of CO2. When temperatures of seawater drops it will dissolve more CO2. Logically, is this CO2 again released when the oceans temperature rise again. There is ipso facto a strong correlation between temperatures and CO2. But the water temperature of the ocean decides which levels of CO2 are released to the atmosphere.

This is in a nutshell what happened after the ice age ended. The ocean temperatures bounced back up again. On top of that accumulate a few midterm oscillations that cause constant small swings around the “setpoint”. This is why CO2 is lagging behind on temperatures.

The small CO2 variations we saw over the last three decennials are caused by ocean currents driven by a varying sun activity. The midterm variations, like the medieval Winter, were caused by the Halstatt cycle. The large CO2 increase over the last 12,000 years is the rebound effect of the last ice age.

CO2 Induced Climate Change Hysteria Debunked in Just 12 Minutes

What Caused the Large Temperature Changes?

The biggest question which is now left: what caused the very large long-term temperature swings of the last glaciations?

  • Sun spots? No.
  • El Nino and El Nina? No.
  • Bretagnon oscillations? No.
  • PDO? No.
  • Hallstatt cycles? No.
  • Earth Crust Deformations? Yes!

Earth Crust Shifts are rejected and even ridiculed by geologists, while they offer the only real explanation for the very large long-term temperature swings around the “setpoint”.

What happens with ice core samples with the assumption that the crust was fixed? The interpretations will lead to conclusions of very large temperature swings, which in fact never took place. Shifts in climatic zones, which are not recognized as such, lead automatically to the idea that the Earth was in a series of ice ages, while there is never any mechanism found what could such events.

Read the article on the main page and you might understand how it works. Earth crust deformations were responsible for large climatic changes over the many hundreds of thousands of years. They were caused by the high eccentric orbits of Earth around the Sun (large tidal oscillation). That is the reason why ice ages relate so well to the eccentricity.

We are today still in the rebound of the last crustal deformation which stopped 26,000 years ago. This rebound effect causes the temperature still to rise a little bit, which on its turn causes the warming of the oceans, which on its turn releases CO2. This is the chain of cause and effect.

That’s how it works.
