There are many aspects of the current scare that can be challenged on the basis of many levels and fronts but I have settled on, at least temporarily, the effects related to our Sun as being the most likely prime driver of climate change. If the sun doesn’t supply heat, what does?
The chart below despells the myth that CO2 is causing anything. I picked this off the web from someone’s paper and I am afraid I have been unable to determine the source. If anyone knows the origin of this chart, please make a comment. It shows a poor correlation to CO2 atmospheric levels and an excellent inverse correlation to sunspot cycle length. Yes I know the oft mentioned old saw “Correlation is not causation” but let me ask one of the dumbest questions I can imagine. If you were to select from a list of potential causes for a given result, would you pick those with the best correlation to investigate further or would you look at those with poor correlation? I guess that is why so many have chosen to go with CO2.
If a picture is worth a thousand words then this is about a 1300 word entry. I’ll get into this more later. Enough said.
