The study finds that Al Gore, um, overstates global warming just by a teensy bit:
A major new scientific study concludes the impact of carbon dioxide emissions on worldwide temperatures is largely irrelevant, prompting one veteran meteorologist to quip, “You can go outside and spit and have the same effect as doubling carbon dioxide.
I’ve long said that it boggles the mind how liberals can claim our SUVs are burning up the planet, yet completely discount the sun as a cause of temperature change on our world.
To put human contributions to “greenhouse gasses” into perspective so that even liberals should be able to understand it…
“Only 2.75 percent of atmospheric CO2 is anthropogenic in origin. The amount we emit is said to be up from 1 percent a decade ago. Despite the increase in emissions, the rate of change of atmospheric carbon dioxide at Mauna Loa remains the same as the long term average (plus 0.45 percent per year),” he said. “We are responsible for just 0.001 percent of this atmosphere. If the atmosphere was a 100-story building, our anthropogenic CO2 contribution today would be equivalent to the linoleum on the first floor.”
Al Gore must have some mighty impressive linoleum in his house.
