Is Cleaner Air REALLY the Cause of Global Warming?
You know I think that the whole “global warming” thing is dubious at best. The “scientists” all seem to be freaking out more and more over every new study and result. Well, here’s a good one. It seems that since we have been working so hard to have cleaner, clearer air… that this new clear air is CONTRIBUTING to global warming! Why? Because the sun is heating us up with such clear air to shine through! Oh no! Maybe we need to crank up the pollutants more to shield ourselves from that nasty ol’ sun! Yeah, right!
“Reduced air pollution and increased water evaporation appear to be adding to man-made global warming. Research presented at a major European science meeting adds to other evidence that cleaner air is letting more solar energy through to the Earth’s surface. Other studies show that increased water vapor in the atmosphere is reinforcing the impact of man-made greenhouse gas emissions. Scientists suggest both trends may push temperatures higher than believed. But they say there is an urgent need for further research, particularly at sea.”
Oh yeah… pay us more research money so we can raise the alarm higher!
More from the article: “Between the 1950s and 1980s, the amount of solar energy penetrating through the atmosphere to the Earth’s surface appeared to be declining, by about 2% per decade. This trend received some publicity under the term “global dimming”. But in the 1980s, it appears to have reversed, according to two papers published last year in the journal Science. The decline in Soviet industry and clean air laws in western countries apparently reduced concentrations of aerosols, tiny particles, in the atmosphere. These aerosols may block solar radiation directly, or help clouds to form which in turn constitute a barrier; or both effects may occur. The lead researcher on one of those Science papers was Martin Wild from the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science (IACETH) in Zurich, and this week he has been discussing the implications of those findings at the European Geosciences Union (EGU) annual meeting in Vienna.”
Yeeesh! So… the air is just TOO CLEAN now! Well, if nothing else, it IS entertaining! What happens when they discover that breathing causes global warming? After all, we breathe out CARBON dioxide! Maybe I shouldn’t say this too loud. After all most of these wackos seem to be saying the earth would be much better off if mankind were wiped from the planet. OK, OK, back to computer-y things!
