Too bad there's NOT ONE hard science study demonstrating that 140 ppm DRY (fictitious state) atmosphere increase in CO2 is causing climate. Keep your speculation to yourself - and nevermind the exponentially more Solar Irradiance reaching the planet vs 1950Climate change is real and humans are causing it.
What is climate change, and how is it affecting Earth? : Read more
Observer...You just implied that CO2 is a pollutant? Focus on removing CO2...and toxins? There are billions being spent on just that. Direct air capture and storage of CO2 under pressure in widespread geological locations. The problem with that solution is it cannot possibly remove enough CO2 to affect the Earth's climate. That technology (even scaled up globally) cannot even remove and safely store just one part-per-million. Never mind those other ppms needed to lower the atmospheric burden to reach a Net-zero goal. A better way forward is to focus our resources on adaptation to whatever the climate decides to do. We will need to do that anyhow.That does not meaning we should pollute the planet or generate CO2 but it does mean we can focus on removing CO2 in a way that also properly removes all the toxins that are rapidly killing us and the planet
Your comments make sense and part of that process is to understand the very long term cyclical nature of the planets climate - including from its 3 long term orbits, the 12 year and longer solar cycles and the ocean currents to name just 3 factors.A better way forward is to focus our resources on adaptation to whatever the climate decides to do. We will need to do that anyhow.
