Global warming is a topic that is catching a lot of attentions, because people are starting to see its catastrophic effects. Unfortunately, many of them are getting their information from certain medias and politicians that don’t have good knowledge about the causes of global warming. These sources did an excellent job brainwashing the public to believe that man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) is the main cause of global warming.
If man-made CO2 was the main cause of global warming, then how come temperatures declined from 1940 through 1970? This was a time when the industrial revolution was in high gear and CO2 levels were rising because of it. CO2 made by nature does play a significant role for trapping heat to warm the planet but man-made CO2 doesn’t, because it accounts for less than 3 percent of the total CO2 level in the atmosphere. So, why are certain medias and politicians spending so much time and money to convince the public that CO2 is the main cause of global warming? The answers are usually the same when politicians are involved. It is all about power, control and money. Their hidden agenda is to put a worldwide tax on the public to help them achieve whatever they are trying to achieve. I can assure you that it is probably not good, otherwise they would not be lying to the public.
You don’t have to look far to realize that CO2 is not the main cause of global warming. There are many gases that are more destructive than CO2 when it comes to trapping heat from the sun. Methane gas is one of them. It can trap 20 times more heat than CO2. One of the top contributors of methane gas is livestock. Raising animals for the purpose of satisfying our meat eating habits generate more greenhouse gases than all the motor vehicles in the world combined. Fortunately, methane gas can only stay in the atmosphere for about 8 years. The bad news is that more methane gas is being released into the atmosphere faster than it is disappearing. In fact, methane gas has doubled since pre-industrial times while CO2 has only risen about 30 percent. Unless we reduce our meat consumption, methane gas will keep on rising to dangerous levels. This will increase the Earth’s temperature, resulting in more violent storms and floods. Below is a quote from a Yale physicist named Noam Mohr.
With methane emissions causing nearly half of the Planet’s human-induced warming, methane reduction must be a priority.
By looking at other facts and analyzing them with CO2, it is clear that global warming is more of a natural phenomenon and human activities are not the major contributors for global warming. Even Dr. James Hansen, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies suggested that CO2 emissions are not the main cause of atmospheric warming.
Out of all the sources that contribute to global warming, the sun may be the most powerful. Take the sun away and the Earth will freeze for eternity. Ask yourself this question, if CO2 is the main cause of global warming, then why is Mars and the other planets warming up too? Sunspot activities were high in the early 1980s up to the late 1990s. Some scientists believed that this is the main reason why the Earth and other planets are heating up.
Scientists from Nasa say that Mars has warmed by about 0.5°C since the 1970s. This is similar to the warming experienced on Earth over approximately the same period (timesonline.co.uk. April 29, 2007).
The sun is one the biggest contributors when it comes to keeping the Earth warm and may even be the main cause of global warming. According to data collected by scientists, sunspot activities correlates to the rise and fall of temperatures on Earth. In the mid 1600s through the early 1700s, there were very little observed sunspots. This period was also very cold, also known as the Little Ice Age. Rick C. Hodgen wrote a great article explaining how Dr. Willie Soon, an astrophysicist from Harvard, explained how sunspots affects Earth’s climate. If Dr. Soon is right, within a few years, Earth’s temperature should start cooling slightly because of the lack of sunspot activities.
Modern science does a pretty good job explaining how things work but it does have many flaws. Because nature works in mysterious ways, using one specific answer to solve a problem may not be the best way to go. I’m sure there are many other major factors in the universe that contribute to global warming, such as the galactic plane, planet alignment and consciousness.
