There is a massive amount of empirical evidence which tells us that the climate was not stable below 350 ppm. Perhaps these geniuses would have preferred the 1930s?
According to IPCC models, if everyone in Wyoming traded in their pickup truck for a hybrid, it would slow global warming by about 0.00000001 degrees.
Are college professors in atmospheric sciences actually as stupid as they pretend to be?
Gavin featured this 2004 picture of Lake Powell on the cover of his climate book, in which he announced the permanent drought.
As noted in the figure, the correlation is 0.93. So natural sources of carbon dioxide account for almost all annual changes in atmospheric CO2. The implication here is huge – humans have very little if anything to do with atmospheric CO2 levels – so AGW theory falls flat on its face. This might sound crazy at first – until you note that total human emissions of CO2 are about 7 Gt while natural sources emit on average 150 Gt. A 5% change in natural emissions would be as much as all CO2 emitted by human activity. It used to be thought that natural emission was static, but (surprise) its dynamic.
Hey Dick! Your Freudian slip is showing! “Since Durban, real world issues have begun to bear down on those leading the charge towards that new global deal.” Presumably this means you realize the IPCC and attendant perpetual “climate change” circus are not attempting to deal with real world issues.
