    Here is a podcast by Professor Murry Salby, Chair of Climate Science at Macquarie University. Apparently the subject of this speech has already passed review and is scheduled to publish this fall. The topic?

    Surprise surprise. Global temps control atmospheric CO2 concentrations, not the other way around. Just like the ice cores predict. Increases in atmospheric CO2 concentrations are a result, not a cause. And all that pap about man's CO2 being unique and easily traceable...pap. How many times has that been pointed out, only to be disregarded by the faithful?

    Professor Curry says that if this publishes, it will completely alter the discussion on climate change. Let the backpedaling begin.

    Westwall must have a big Cheshire Cat grin on his face right now. personally I would like to know the mechanism behind the 800 yr lag time. perhaps if all the funding didnt go into manmade CO2 studies we would already have a better handle on it.

    Since when has cause and effect ever mattered when seeking the truth?

    It is hilarious how extremely gullible you are, wired&bent. You fall for every bit of denier cult pseudo-science that the propaganda machine shoves into your head. This is just one more example of that nonsense coming this time through a right wing 'think tank' called The Sydney Institute. A quick google search turned up a number of debunkings of your current fantasy.

    Is the long-term trend in CO2 caused by warming of the oceans?

    Published in which peer reviewed journal? The Sydney Institute?

    Sydney Institute - SourceWatch

    The Sydney Institute is corporate funded think tank based in Sydney, Australia. It is run by Gerard Henderson and his wife Anne Henderson, who are its only directors and only employees.

    In a biographical note for Gerard Henserson it states that the Sydney Institute "has links with similar institutes around the world, including the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, the Manhattan Institute in New York, the European Policy Forum in London, Keidanren in Tokyo and the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Jakarta."

    We know from industries own records, from the mines and wellheads to the point of use, how much carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels.

    It has been explained many times how the Milankovic Cycles warm the souther oceans first, causing them to release CO2 at the beginnings of the interglacial periods.

    The bottom line is that we don't have time for this global warming nonsense. Obama's appointment of a communist and former organizer of an arson and looting rampage to be on his "green jobs" board should send a signal that the global warming scam is an evolution of the 60's and 70's (Bill Ayers) anarchist movement. We are trading our great grandkids future to China and Venezuela in exchange for oil while Barry and the democrats refuse to allow US companies to explore for oil in US territory.

    The bottom line is that you are already paying for the effects of global warming. Check out wheat prices for the last two years. Check meat prices in the supermarket.

    And as for your other lies, the company that I work for is making a bundle off of the pipe we are selling to those exploring for oil and gas. There is major exploration going on all over the US. However, when you use 24% of the world's oil, and have only 3% of the worlds reserves, which we are using very quickly, you are not going to drill your way to energy independence.

    Bottom line is, you're an idiot.

    Sometimes, that's really all there is to say. :eusa_angel:
