Conventional wisdom and mass media has made us believe that Cardon Dioxide (CO2) is the devil responsible for global warming. Here are some facts that we need to consider in this regard and I will mention the source of these at the end of this post:
1) Methane (also found in the belches and flatulence of the cattle we raise for red meat and dairy) is 50 times more ‘warming’ than CO2.
2) Chief cause of global temperature rise is water vapor and the current global climate models used by our geo-scientists dont have the ‘tech know how’ to process the contribution to warming made by water vapor so they just dont include it in the research…yes this is how things happen. The vast majority of research in this area is Government funded and this also means that the identical results of such ‘research’ is more due to economical and technical factors than the real causes of the global warming.
3) These days CO2 levels in our atmosphere are around 380 ppm but its interesting to note that if you work in those new energy-efficient-buildings you are working in a space of CO2 1000 ppm. And this 1000ppm of CO2 is established by the engineering groups as standard for heating and ventilation systems.
So my fellow citizens of this world, time for you to see through the conventional wisdom, propaganda and other screens and know that CO2 is not the real culprit. In fact research has found, that over last hundred thousand years CO2 levels has arisen after a rise in temperature and not the other way around.
