This video is divided into 5 parts:

Part 1: Climate and the CO2 portion

Part 2: The real climate forcing

Part 3: The paradox of Arctic Warming

Part 4: Priory assumptions choking science

Part 5: Ecological uplift, 10-fold CO2

It is the purpose of this video:

1. To take a great weight off our shoulders

that has been needlessly placed on us all.

2. To help give hope and life to the countless millions

who are presently condemned to an agonizing death.

3. To introduce a new paradigm for a new future

towards the fulfillment of the common aims of mankind.

Great fear has been cultivated across the world that human activities are forcing cataclysmic climate change. The fear is groundless.

Manmade global warming is not physically possible. This means that it is not happening.

Since no evidence exists for any global warming happening, especially now that the Antarctic sea ice is expanding again, the tune of the 'song' has been changed from, manmade global warming, to man-made climate change. Of course, this too, is impossible since the underlying physics remain the same. Neither has the doctrine behind the scene changed.

Manmade Climate Change simply is not happening. It would be wonderful if it would be possible for humanity to develop the means to alter the climate of the Earth. This would save us the challenge of preparing our world for the next Ice Age cycle, to which the transition has already begun.

Yes, the transition to the next Ice Age really has begun. The astrophysical dynamics are huge that affect our climate, though the evidence is still weak and not where one would expect to find it.

Nevertheless, though the Ice Age transition dynamics are still only minutely expressed, they are already causing devastating drought conditions, flooding, untimely frosts, and increased tornadoes and larger hurricanes which affect our living, and most of all our agriculture.

These deep-reaching effects tell us that the Earth's climate is indeed changing, and this in a big way. However it also means that the climate change is not manmade. The physical reality that this is so is rather plain.

Climate dynamics in comparison with CO2 forcing.

While it is true that carbon dioxide, called CO2 in chemistry, is a greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, and while it is also true that this gas is massively produced by humanity in human living and human economics, it is also true that the climate effect of this particular greenhouse gas is so minuscule that it is essentially non-existing, regardless of what its concentration in the atmosphere is or may be in the future.

The scientific fact is that CO2 does NOT affect the global climate. It never had an effect in the past, even when it was up to 50 times denser. And so it doesn't have an effect now either, or in the future, especially when one considers that the present CO2 level is so low that it has put the ecological system of the Earth into a CO2-starved environment. All this simply means that anthropogenic global warming is nothing more than a scary fairy tale, a well-crafted tale to terrorize children, but one that is simply not possible to come true in the real world.

Manmade global warming IS a fairy tal indeed. Humanity is easily vilified with political fiction in which such impossible tales are spun, in which science is turned upside down so that CO2 can be blamed as a villain, because all life is carbon based, including human living and human activities. Scare stories based on upside-down science are easily imposed that proclaim with fanfares blaring that humanity is 'living too much' and is emitting too much CO2 by the processes that it requires to live. Who in society would counter the trusted oracles of science?

It is being said that by corrupted science that our living threatens to heat the greenhouse of the earth so intensely that all the glaciers in the world will melt, and the melt waters will raise the sea levels so high that many low-elevation lands will be flooded.

However, if one compares where CO2 really stands in the global greenhouse dynamics, a totally different picture comes to light. Let me illustrate why CO2 is not a climate-forcing factor.

Yes, CO2 is a greenhouse gas. The CO2 molecules in the air do absorb radiated heat energy. This physical quality renders CO2 a greenhouse gas; one of a number of greenhouse gases.

The greenhouse too, is not a villain. It is essential to human living and to all life. The very existence of life on our planet is made possible by the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere. Without it, enormous temperature fluctuations would occur that would make life impossible. This means that we really do depend on the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere. It is one of the most-critical factors for life, in that it moderates the climate fluctuations. The greenhouse effect of the atmosphere literally enables us all to exist.

The greenhouse gases retain a portion of the Sun's radiated energy. They retain also a portion of the Earth's reflected-back energy, though this portion is small. The greenhouse also received a large portion of its thermal energy as latent heat released by water-vapor condensation into clouds. These three sources all together warm the atmosphere. The warmed atmosphere acts as a thermal buffer around the Earth that makes the nights warmer and the days cooler.

Most of the incoming solar energy that penetrates through the atmosphere is used up on the ground by vegetation and by water vaporization. Some of it also heats the ground. The absorbed heat on the ground is radiated back into space at a much lower temperature, which corresponds to a different radiation spectrum. Most of the ground-radiated heat is absorbed in the atmosphere by water vapor. One of the three absorption bands of CO2 falls into this region, but even there it is completely masked by the wide absorption band of water vapor.

Also it should be noted that the ground-radiated energy, averaged globally, is extremely minuscule in comparison with the incoming solar radiation that is 300,000 times stronger. If the ground radiation were to be drawn to scale, it would show up as a flat line. Nevertheless, the ground radiation is a factor in the greenhouse dynamics, small as this factor may be. In addition, the greenhouse itself is a heat-radiating emitter.

While CO2 does play a role in absorbing the out-going radiated energy, the CO2 effect is there too masked by the absorbing effect of water vapor so that it remains minuscule and of no practical significance whatsoever. Much of the out-going radiation is re-absorbed anyway, so that the total effect is slow-acting and spread out over days. The greenhouse is thereby maintained over long periods.

The 'long-term' heat retention is affected almost exclusively by water vapor. The atmosphere contains 13,000 billion tons of water, and only 900 billion tons of CO2, which itself has a 10-fold lower absorption coefficient than water.

Yes, CO2 is a greenhouse gas. The CO2 molecules in the air do absorb some of the sun's radiated heat energy. This physical quality makes CO2 a greenhouse gas. It is one of a number of greenhouse gases, and one of the most inefficient ones. The molecular bonds between the oxygen and carbon atoms are strong. The strong bond makes the molecule less responsive to external stimulation. In water vapor, the bond between the hydrogen atoms of H2O is weaker, which makes the molecule more responsive to external influences.

The molecular bond in water is so loose that the molecules can vibrate in 8 different ways to resonate across a wide spectrum of external energy. This quality makes water vapor a highly effective greenhouse gas with a 10 to 20 times greater absorption coefficient than CO2. Just compare the values.

The greenhouse itself is not a danger to human living and life itself. The very existence of life on our planet is made possible by the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere. Without it, enormous temperature fluctuations would occur that would make life impossible. This means that we really do depend on the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere. It is one of the most- critical factors for life in that it moderates the climate fluctuations. The greenhouse effect of the atmosphere literally enables us all to exist. The greenhouse gases retain a portion of the Sun's energy, and also the Earth's reflected energy, in the atmosphere. The greenhouse forms a thermal buffer around the Earth that makes the nights warmer and the days cooler.

The CO2 gas in the atmosphere does play a role in the greenhouse process, although its role is extremely minuscule and too small to have an effect on anything.

It is a physical fact that not all greenhouse gases are equal in their heat-absorbing ability, or efficiency. If one compares the absorption coefficient of CO2 with that of water vapor, the most important greenhouse gas, a 10 to 20-fold difference comes to light. CO2 has an absorption coefficient of roughly the value of 20 in its two narrow bands within the radiation spectrum of the Sun. Water vapor, in comparison, has an absorption coefficient of 200, ranging upwards to 600. In this comparison, the energy absorption efficiency of water vapor is 10 to 30 times greater than that of CO2, conservatively.

However, while the CO2 is responsive in only two bands within the solar radiation spectrum, and this at the low-energy end of the spectrum, water vapor is responsive in 7 bands, with some located in the high-energy end of the spectrum. This combined addition renders water vapor absorption roughly 50 times greater.

In addition to all that, water vapor is 100-fold more prevalent in the atmosphere than CO2 is. The water vapor density in the atmosphere is typically 4%, while the density of CO2 is a mere 0.039% This added density factor raises the comparative absorption difference to 5000, between water vapor and CO2.

Let me illustrate what this difference means, extremely conservatively.

Let me compare the CO2 effect to a cat, which stands roughly one foot tall. In this comparison, water vapor, which is the major greenhouse gas, is comparable to a building twice as tall as the World Trade towers in New York had stood. In this comparison a cat is so small that it cannot even be seen. If one was to over-feed the cat and make it 30% fatter, it still couldn't be seen. Indeed, if it was possible to over-feed the cat so much that it became 10 times bigger and grew up to the size of a horse, one still wouldn't be able to see it in the perspective of the visual comparison. It would remain minuscule no matter what.

Still, the comparison is incomplete.

Water vapor and CO2 are not the only greenhouse gases. Oxygen and Ozone are also important greenhouse gases, especially considering that 21% of the atmosphere is oxygen. With oxygen being responsive in the high-energy region of the solar radiation spectrum, the total absorption ratio relative to CO2 is dramatically increased. Further, at the high end of the solar radiation spectrum the energy absorption is additionally increased by the Rayleigh Scattering effect. If it wasn't for this scattering effect, the sky would be black all day long, and not only at night. The scattering effect makes the sky appear luminous.

The absorption of solar radiation occurs in two groups, divided at the 600 nanometer line. The right group, marked light blue, is dominated by water vapor absorption in which CO2 plays a role but is overshadowed by water vapor 5000 to 1. In the left group, marked in light green, the absorption is dominated by oxygen and scattering, which together overshadow the right group roughly 100 to 1, for a resulting ratio of the total absorption compared with CO2, of roughly 500,000 to one.

It also needs to be considered that slightly less than half the heat in the atmosphere is absorbed from solar radiation. Slightly more than half of the atmospheric heat budget is latent heat released by the cloud forming.

When a tea kettle is boiled dry, the water is transformed into vapor. The energy that is invested to do this, is retained in the vapor. It is released when the vapor is turned into liquid again. When clouds form, this energy is being released.

The latent heat released in the clouds keeps the clouds buoyant, and enables the long distance water transport, without which the Earth would be a barren desert. This means that extremely large amounts of heat transfers are involved in this process that operates such a grand dynamic system. Of course, CO2 has no effect on the process.

When this additional factor is added to the comparison, the CO2 absorption amounts to roughly one millionth of the atmosphere's heat budget.

Of course, the climate on earth is not only affected by the greenhouse heat stored in the atmosphere. The climate is affected more powerfully by still other factors. One of these factors is the reflective action of the clouds.

A large portion of the incoming solar energy is being reflected back into space by the reflective top surface of the clouds. This effect renders the global cloud coverage a critical climate factor. The energy that is reflected back into space is lost to us. This means that the degree of cloudiness is a large factor in the climate dynamics.

The cooling effect of cloudiness is something that everyone has experienced. Cloudy days are colder days. If one adds the heat reflection factor to the comparison, comparing the CO2 heat absorption to the total climate dynamics, then the CO2 portion of it will likely be in the order of 1 ten-millionth of the total greenhouse dynamics.

Global climate and the CO2 portion


10,000,000 to 1

The science community has been fighting back against the global warming doctrine in numerous protest and petition movements.

It takes a vast religious leap of faith for anyone to belief that humanity’s one half of a percent increase of the 1 ten-millionth portion of the climate dynamics will cook the earth and melt the polar ice caps. This has never happened, and never will happen, as it simply can't happen. However, this doesn't mean that the climate isn't changing. The climate is indeed changing. The change is forced by vastly greater factors than humanity's puny addition to the global CO2 density.
