Look at the graph of global temperatures and compare it to the rise in carbon dioxide concentrations. Pay particular attention to data since 1998. Since that time, the concentration of carbon dioxide has increased about 10% and yet, global temperatures have leveled off. This is in direct contradiction to what the IPCC and all the religious converts to anthropogenic global warming (AGW) predicted. If the IPCC computer models could not even forecast a dozen years into the future, what confidence should we have in these models for the next 100 years? More importantly, are these faulty models grounds for massive taxation and redistribution of wealth from the industrialized world to the third world? Should we be setting energy and taxation policy based on these flawed computer models? Are there more important things we could be investing TRILLIONS of dollars on? There are plenty of real threats to the environment worth addressing instead of harmless (and I would even argue, “beneficial”) carbon dioxide.
