So say the climate lunatics. You see, the theory is that atmospheric CO2 prevents heat from escaping earth. In that there is significantly less atmospheric CO2 above the arctic than say the tropics, the more and more atmospheric CO2 proliferates, the more significant warming will be seen in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. This is because of the supposed logarithmic effects of atmospheric CO2. That is to say, an increase of 100ppm from 300ppm won’t cause as much warming as a 100ppm increase from 200ppm. Simples!
The only problem is the Arctic hasn’t warmed in 14 1/2 years, all the while, atmospheric CO2 has increased over the Arctic.
This is pretty new and neat! RSS doesn’t cover all the way to 90 deg North …. but, UAH’s new version of the satellite data now does!
At the bottom of the page at the link we see this ….
So, for the first time, we get to see all of the Arctic! So, what do the satellites tell us
about the temps in the Arctic? They have changed since the turn of the century.
I think it’s time to put this inane theory to bed. It’s wrong at every turn.
Pardon the bizarre formatting. I can’t seem to fix it for this post.
