The Great CO2 Non-Problem

    The fear surrounding Global Warming -or Climate Change if you prefer- is predicated on the notion that CO2 Emissions created by human industry are a dangerous problem.

    Naturally occuring CO2 -mainly released by the oceans that cover a little over 70% of the Earth’s surface- we can do absolutely nothing about.

    So let’s take a look at some facts:
    CO2 from Nature = 98%
    CO2 from Humans = 2%


    Of that small slice of the CO2 cake, how much is contributed by the UK?

    Based on data from the Union of Concerned Scientists [www.ucsusa.org] of the largest industrial bogeymen, it’s roughly 2%, which equates to around 0.04% -that's four hundredths of ONE percent- of the total CO2 budget.

    How much UK debt is expected to be generated every year to deal with this 0.04% non-problem?

    £20 Billion pounds sterling. Each year, every year, for the forseeable future.

    We are being robbed blind. Just ask yourself who’s benefiting from this outrageous scam.

    so it's ok for us to use our gas-guzzlers all day long? (so long as we can afford it of course)
    wow thanks for telling us this!

    Felt tip - Aren't you planning an extended trip criss-crossing Europe?
    Double standards? Surely not! :eek2

    Peak Oil may -or may not- be a problem, but if you can afford an overly-taxed vehicle & the fuel to run it, then by all means go to it.

    not sure what taking trains across europe has to do with your argument.

    Using a handy Carbon Footprint calculator [http://calculator.carbonfootprint.com], each 1,000 miles of rail travel will add 0.09 tonnes of CO2 to your personal carbon footprint.

    You can offset this via a range of scams, including donations to green energy portfolios [which need your help as the carbon price plummets], pretend tree planting, or supporting the UN's mercury-filled lightbulb rollout via the CDM project. [just don't breath-in when you drop & smash one].

    :D Had to google this shimkus fella......nope, he ain't me, but he's nearly right about this:

    "Today we have about 388 parts per million in the atmosphere. I think in the age of dinosaurs, when we had the most flora and fauna, we were probably at 4,000 parts per million."

    The geological record suggests nearer 5,000ppm.
    Being agnostic, I sit on the fence bible-wise......but it's an interesting read.

    As for JC, his image is a 'media construct'....I have no time for daleks. :grin
