There really is no such thing as a Climate Scientist: Most of the people who call themselves Climate Scientists are statisticians and computer programmers. You would expect them to be Physicists, Chemists and Meteorologists, wouldn’t you?
Meteorologists know that predicting the weather is pretty much impossible more than a week or two into the future. They laugh at the Climate models knowing them to be little better than computer games. Chaos theory proves the world’s climate is unpredictable.
Physicists such as the late Freeman Dyson know that “carbon dioxide in the atmosphere does far more good than harm. To any unprejudiced person the facts should be obvious: that the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide as a sustainer of wildlife and crop plants are enormously beneficial, that the possibly harmful climatic effects of carbon dioxide have been greatly exaggerated, and that the benefits clearly outweigh the possible damage. I consider myself an unprejudiced person and to me these facts are obvious.”
Chemists know that the warming effect of CO2 is proportional to the Log of the concentration, rather than being proportional to the concentration. This means that the first 20ppm CO2 in the atmosphere has the same warming effect as the next 400ppm.
The Beer-Lambert law, also known as Beer's law, the Lambert-Beer law, or the Beer-Lambert-Bouguer law relates the…
So why do so many people believe such bad science? There is a reason the Left of politics treat Climate Change as holy writ: the catastrophic predictions for Global Warming are justification for all sorts of draconian Government interference in the economy, and in the human rights of their populations. The Corona virus shutdowns are just a warm-up exercise for the Carbon Emissions shutdowns.
Completely unnecessary as Climate Change is simply what will happen when the current Ice Age finally ends: a warmer climate, longer growing seasons and eventually (in 10,000 years) the sea will rise 10 metres to the level it was last at before this Ice Age. You can’t stop this happening, and why would you want to? We will adapt: if we can’t build dykes to keep the water out, we will retreat inland at 1mm per year. I would be far more concerned were the Ice Age to grow colder again.
