It’s the end of the world as we know it

I thought that since Ben Cubby is spewing out more rubbish on anthropogenic climate change, I have better let people know about the facts of the matter because what Ben Cubby is stating is unscientific assertions that are based on a false premise. The false premise is that CO2 drives global temperature. It is global temperature that drives CO2 levels.
Cubby is also stating that global temperature is increasing, that is false also. There hasn’t been a statistically significant increase in global temperature in the last 16 years! See the following reference:
Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it
The figures reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012 there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures
This means that the ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996

The predictions made in the Cubby article use computer models, so I’ll state it again because the message never seems to reach people like him. You cannot predict the climate using weather models as it is impossible to predict the weather more than a fortnight ahead with any degree of accuracy.
“It has recently been calculated that to produce an accurate forecast of the climate even as little as ten years ahead would require all of the world’s computers to run not for ten years but for 100 billion billion billion years. The age of the universe is only 13.7 billion years. So anyone who claims that any computer model can produce reliable results 100 years ahead is making a claim that goes not only well beyond the laws of mathematics, as explained by Lorenz, but also well beyond the capacity of today’s computers.”

The Cubby article about the end of the World as we know it suggests that Greenhouse Gasses are dangerous. Greenhouse Gasses are about 95% water vapour and if we didn’t have them, the Sun’s rays would bounce off the Earth.
Models such as the one that Cubby follows are computer models that have left the role of the Sun out of the equation completely. They totally discount any effect of the Sun in warming the planet and claim, quite falsely that warming is solely due to Carbon Dioxide. Note that CO2 is depicted as smoke stacks, whereas in fact, CO2 is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas, which you cannot see! The molecular weight of CO2 is quite significant as most of it stays at ground level. CO2 consists of one carbon atom, whose atomic weight is 12 plus 2 oxygen atoms with an atomic weight of 16, so 12 + 16 = 28 and that is not the sort of thing that will cause the black balloons depicted in government propaganda to fly up into the air. The balloons used are filled with Helium which has an atomic weight of 4.
I’ve included some facts about CO2 below and I can only conclude that people like Ben Cubby are scientifically illiterate as they do not appear to understand the role of CO2 in Nature. In short they do not appear to have ever heard of the Carbon Cycle, so perhaps they slept through elementary science classes!
The following definition of the Carbon Cycle explains the role of CO2 in sustaining life, in short, humans and animals breathe out CO2, which plants breathe in and then breathe out Oxygen.
The Carbon Cycle
1. The continuous process by which carbon is exchanged between organisms and the environment. Carbon dioxide is absorbed from the atmosphere by plants and algae and converted to carbohydrates by photosynthesis. Carbon is then passed into the food chain and returned to the atmosphere by the respiration and decay of animals, plants, and other organisms. The burning of fossil fuels also releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
2. A cycle of thermonuclear reactions caused by the absorption of protons by the nucleus of a carbon-12 atom, in which helium and isotopes of nitrogen, carbon, and oxygen are produced, and resulting in the regeneration of a carbon-12 atom so that the process can begin again. The carbon cycle is thought to be the source of significant amounts of energy in the Sun and other stars. Also called Bethe cycle, carbon-nitrogen cycle.

Facts about CO2
The following facts come from the Galileo Movement’s Rice Video and are facts about Carbon Dioxide
CO2 is less than 0.04% of the air we breathe
In every 85,000 molecules of air just 33 are CO2
Of the 33 molecules of air 32 come from Nature and 1 comes from human activity. CO2 from human sources is just 3% of CO2 production
32 are essential for life but 1 is supposedly producing catastrophic global warming
The truth is that CO2 is essential for life on Earth – the Carbon Cycle
CO2 is resident in the atmosphere for 4 to 5 years not hundreds or thousands as we are being led to believe by those who support Anthropogenic Global Warming and after that it gets recycled into plants, animals, rocks and so on
Of all the CO2 in the World, Australia manufactures only 1.5%
Australia’s CO2 production is 1 molecule in 5,700,000, expressed as a ratio = 1:5,700,000, so Australia produces only 1 molecule of CO2 in every 5.7 million molecules of air
Measurements cited by the Government reveal that it is temperature change that precedes CO2 not vice versa
Temperature sets CO2 levels
CO2 does not determine temperature
The Government’s sole Climate Adviser, Professor Will Stephan is employed by the Department of Climate Change
The Rice Video
This says it all!
Last but not least, you should read about how the Club of Rome stated that it needed to manufacture a phoney ecological crisis right back in 1990. See the following extract from the article on the Club of Rome. The move to convince humanity that they were the enemy of the planet and that their numbers needed to be reduced was outlined then.
“On page 75 of their 1990 publication entitled The First Global Revolution, the organization outlined how they would manufacture ecological scares in order to manipulate the public into accepting the imposition of a dictatorial world government run by them.”
“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…. All these dangers are caused by human intervention… The real enemy, then, is humanity itself,” states the report.”
“The passage appears under a sub-headline entitled, “The common enemy of humanity is Man.” ”
