If you regularly read my postings, you know I am guilty as sin of being a “climate change denier” and a “global warming denier”. There. I confessed.
Small minded earth-first global-warming alarmists like Al Gore, Barack Obama, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez readily latch onto the faux science of anthropogenic (man-caused) climate change, aka global warming.
As I have explained in past postings, that great big ball of fire 93 million miles from earth is the singular most significant influence on terrestrial weather.
The sun unceasingly blasts our planet with radiation from below the infrared band to above the ultraviolet, including UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. In between these extremes, we enjoy visible light.
Do you not notice how daytime temperature begins to rise at sunrise, peaking around 4:00 PM standard time, then dropping continuously overnight to a morning low temperature before the cycle begins again?
At high noon, 95% of UV solar radiation is UV-A, 5% is UV-B. Thankfully, UV-C and most of UV-B are removed from extraterrestrial radiation by stratospheric ozone. UV-C is the band we use in HVAC equipment to kill airborne bacteria and viruses. This same UV-C is used to sterilize surgical instruments and surfaces. Caution: UV-C can blind you in mere seconds. Never, ever look directly at UV-C bulbs.
Sky and Telescope reported in 2013, “The Weakest Solar Cycle in 100 Years…The Sun has been [lipping its magnetic poles every 11 years], just to a lesser degree. “Not only is this the smallest cycle we’ve seen in the space age, but it’s [also] the smallest cycle in 100 years”. https://bit.ly/2DKXXuQ
As you read this, the sun ends its 24th recorded solar cycle and begins the 25th.
Universe Today reports, “We’re currently headed towards a solar minimum, forecasted to arrive in 2019 as the Sun switches over from Solar Cycle 24 to Solar Cycle 25.” https://bit.ly/2wt0WEe
A major factor in genuine climate changes is the earth’s magnetic field, more specifically, changes in the magnetic field.
Changes in the movement of the earth’s molten iron core cause some parts of the earth’s surface to cool and other parts to drastically warm. On the latter, changes in the magnetic field have elevated Antarctic temperatures as much as 12 degrees F. Reference: https://phys.org/news/2014-05-earth-magnetic-field-important-climate.html
As any pilot knows, the magnetic north pole continuously moves. Subsequently, the magnetic field maps are regularly updated to provide “magnetic deviation”, the difference between the true north pole and the magnetic north pole.
As reported in BIN, “In the last 30 years, the rate of distance that the magnetic north pole moves per year sped up from about 9.3 miles per year to around 34 miles per year, moving out of northern Canada, across the Arctic Ocean, and toward Siberia.” https://bit.ly/2UucxfD
Does carbon-dioxide (CO2) affect surface temperatures? Yes, but the combined forces of solar radiation and the earth’s magnetic field are much more influential.
CO2 is not a pollutant, but half of the life-sustaining carbon cycle. What is the carbon cycle?
The carbon cycle is “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.”
In a nutshell, plants use CO2 as food and give off oxygen (O2) to the atmosphere from which we living creatures take in life-sustaining O2 and release back to atmospheric CO2.
In an even simpler explanation: Carbon dioxide is good because without it all life on earth would cease to exist.
