Thorpe Watson, Ph.D. in Physical Metallurgy & Science of Materials. Thirty five year career covering wide range of science disciplines with 10 plus years investigating the climate controversy: Prophets of doom are not about to give up their anti-CO2 campaign. Even though they admit that atmospheric CO2 is still increasing during the COVID-19 global economic shutdown, they refuse to recognize the role played by our CO2 emissions. These emissions not only green the planet, they also increase the partial pressure of atmospheric CO2. This increase causes a redistribution of CO2 to restore, within a few weeks, the original distribution of CO2 between the two phases (atmosphere and oceans). The current distribution is about 50/1. There is 50 times more CO2 in the oceans than in the atmosphere. Even after the consumption of all known reserves of coal, oil, and natural gas the atmosphere will be starved for more CO2. Clearly, there is no need to destroy our economy by abandoning the use of hydrocarbon fuels. However, we must not abandon energy conservation and efficiency measures, nor abandon the pursuit of alternative sources of energy.
Paul Driessen, senior policy advisor for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: On multiple levels – federal, state and local ... hospitals, industries, armed forces and nursing homes – the United States and nearly every other country seem to have been woefully underprepared for the Coronavirus that came roaring out of Wuhan, China at the end of 2019. If all these countries were paying so little attention to these recurrent pandemics, and spending so little money preparing for them – what WERE they focusing on? The answer is allegedly “dangerous man-made global warming and climate change.” In other words, very little on diseases that hit humanity very hard and quite often – versus enormous, inordinate amounts on a supposed threat that exists primarily in computer models and media headlines, and assumes Earth’s climate was stable and near-perfect until a few decades ago. Most of the Main Stream Media, universsities and National Academies of Science agree with these Wunderkinder.
Ken Buesseler, Senior Scientist, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: The ocean plays a major role in the global carbon cycle. The driving force comes from tiny plankton that produce organic carbon through photosynthesis, like plants on land. Some of this carbon is consumed by sea life, and a portion is chemically broken down. Much of it is carried to deep waters, where it can remain for hundreds to thousands of years.
Ed Berry, physicist and climate scientist: Global warming is not your fault. Don’t over complicate climate physics. Simple physics proves the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC, is wrong. Your carbon emissions do not cause climate change. Nature causes climate change. This article explains how carbon dioxide flows through the atmosphere, the oceans and land.
Government plans to capture carbon dioxide from power plants would be a tremendous waste of energy and money. It would weaken food production and thus make life worse for all animals, including humans. Many people in government and the voting public have no idea about science. This will lead to the downfall of freedom and free enterprise to be replaced by evil that will control most of our lives, what we can do and how we must think.
