Global Warming Today: CO2 Good, Soda, May’s, and Snow

By Adrian Arp, PH.D

CO2 is not a pollutant and is not causing global warming. CO2 is necessary for life on the planet, as plants utilize CO2 to produce the oxygen we breathe and the food we eat! Global warming now and cooling of the 40’s to mid-seventies is caused by solar activity. We have an active sun now! The earth has been warming for 300 years with most of the increase prior to increased CO2 levels.

Also, 279 research project reports have shown that increasing CO2 increases crop production. Higher levels of CO2 is creating a lush environment for plants and animals and will improve the health (more oxygen), longevity and prosperity of all people.

Food for thought

A typical 12-ounce can of soda contains up to six grams (.013 pounds) of carbon dioxide (CO2) gas, which either escapes into the atmosphere from the liquid upon opening, or from your body after you consume the contents. So yes, drinking carbonated beverages does contribute to your “carbon footprint,” but only ever so slightly. (WT – much less then thos limo’s and private jets liberals like to use)

But cans and bottles of carbonated (or non-carbonated) drinks are still no friends of the environment. The production and distribution of single-serving beverages of all kinds generates untold millions of tons of greenhouse gases and other pollutants every year, while also wasting billions of gallons of fresh water. And once the drinks have been consumed, all those cans and plastic bottles have to go somewhere.

Not sure how the “water is wasted” when you, in fact, drink the soda. Think that carbonated beverages will soon be in the climahysterics hit list?

Everything is the caused by global warming, or at least hintimated

Researchers in Michigan report new evidence that water levels in the Great Lakes, which are near record low levels, may be shrinking due to global warming. Their study, which examines water level data for Lakes Michigan and Huron over more than a century.

If they have the “new evidence,” then it either is or isn’t being caused by global warming. Otherwise, it isn’t evidence. That is climahystericy in a nutshell: deep scientific thinking that includes words like may. Don’t forget, all the IPCC reports rarely made any actual hard predictions, instead relying on “likely” and “very likely.”

And the kicker

On December 4 Vermonters were treated to a well- orchestrated media event designed to terrify them into endorsing a very expensive special interest policy agenda. The occasion was the release of a new report by the Vermont Public Interest Group (VPIRG) claiming that “global warming will substantially increase the odds of extreme precipitation. scientists predict that warming temperatures will increase the frequency of major storm with heavy rainfall or snowfall.”

Got that? Vermont will get more snow because of global warming. You just can’t make this stuff up. Well, climahysterics can, but, you know what I mean.

Even the New York Times understands that anthropogenic climate change is more about hysteria then reality. And they themselves know something about hysteria.

    Utterly preposterous to think that 6 billion humans could have any significant impact on their environment. Poppycock !!!

  2. John Ryan says:

    Not sure of where the water is wasted during the production of soda ? manufacturing is a major use of water

  3. John Ryan says:

    You obviously have not had much experience with the type of participation called “snow”
    In Vermont and Maine we use snow to insulate our homes from the cold. Often the warmest thing we have in the north is snow,

  4. John Ryan says:

    Teach are you aware that as the temp drops into the below 0f range it seldom snows ? That it is much more likely to snow at 32F than 0F ? Are you aware that much of Alaska is a desert ? Even though it is very cold ? And that if the temp goes up it will also receive more precipitation in the form of snow.
    http://www.blm.gov/education/00_resources/articles/alaskas_cold_desert/
    Deserts are usually classed as areas getting less than 10 inches of annual percipitation

  5. John Ryan says:

    Perhaps you are also unaware that Antarctica normally has VERY little snowfall ? That most of its interior normally has less than 1 inch per year of precipitation ?
    Your posts of more snowfall in that region point to something that is not considered normal, warm air can hold more water vapor.

  6. Yet again, john, I never claimed that Man had nothing to do with global warming, just that he is not the primary cause.

    As far as water loss, i was referring to the drinking of.

    I am familiar with snow, grew up in NJ, went to high school in the mountains of NJ. That is not the point. The point is that those who believe in climate change think hotter is going to make us colder.

    Never heard that Alaska is a desert. I know Antarctica is. Don’t think so with Alaska. It does have rain forests, though!

    Don’t f**k with my Diet Coke man.

    Teach, you have stated before that methane (a major greenhouse gas) is contributing to global warming. Since CO2 is also a major greenhouse gas, why don’t you think CO2 is contributing to global warming?

    Also, what information on the sun indicates the output has increased and is the primary cause of the current warming trend?

  9. CO2 is not as pervasive a gh gas as methane. When the IPCC discusses agriculture being the largest issue from Man, it is mostly due to methane. Plants and animals release it in copious amounts.

    All the data shows that CO2 increases FOLLOW temp increases, not the reverse, as The Goracle tried to get everyone to believe.

    Please point out in this post where I mentioned the Sun. As far as that goes, google around a bit, and I reckon you will find plenty of white papers on the subject.

    Would never do that, Stacy. I’m waiting for the report on carbonation in beer. There would be a revolt across the world! 🙂

  10. Silke says:

    First, why are you quoting the IPCC? Are they a credible source now on climate change?

    Second, if you are going to quote the IPCC at least quote them correctly. The IPCC does not state that agriculture is the largest issue from man. According to the IPCC it is the CO2 emissions from the burning of fossil fuels.

    The IPCC clearly states the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in 2005 was 379 parts per million. The amount of methane in the atmosphere in 2005 was 1774 parts per billion. The primary source of the increase in carbon dioxide is fossil fuel use, but land-use changes also make a contribution. The primary source of the increase in methane is very likely to be a combination of human agricultural activities and fossil fuel use.

    Third, regarding solar activity, once again even your own source doesn’t support your argument. The graph which shows the solar cycle since 1994 does not correlate with the global temperature record.

    This paper explains that over the past 20 years, all the trends in the Sun that could have had an influence on the Earth’s climate have been in the opposite direction to that required to explain the observed rise in global mean temperature:

    Teach what portion of global climate change is Man responsible for causing ?
    Should Man be part of the problem of global climate change ? or part of the solution to the problem ?
    Alaska i quite a large land mass. The southern part is a rain forest, due mostly to the Japanese current, the large part above the arctic circle is a cold desert. With global warming this cold desert WILL have an increase in precipitation mostly as snow.
    Yes SNOW even though it is getting warmer !!
