Letter: Carbon a small part of atmosphere
Earth’s atmosphere is made up of the following gases: nitrogen (78.084 percent), oxygen (20.946 percent), argon (.934 percent), carbon dioxide (.0383 percent), neon (.001818 percent), helium (.000524 percent), methane (.0001745 percent), krypton (.000114 percent) and hydrogen (.000055 percent).
Notice the percentage of carbon in the atmosphere— .0383 percent. This is remarkable since most Global Warming alarmists point to manmade carbon output driving the warming trend of solar cycle 23. It is even more relevant to consider that 90 percent of that .0383 percent occurs via nature, not man. So I suppose that a global tax on man’s carbon outputs will impact the climate any significant way when we are adjusting a level that accounts for 90 percent X .0383— .00383 percent of the atmosphere. No citizens, you are being lied to once again by your government.
Here are a few interesting facts. I can’t believe I said the ‘F’ word:
—Higher CO2 levels produce a denser tree. Trees and plants thrive on CO2.
—Research shows that carbon levels 1,000 years ago were 1,800 PPM. Today, it has risen to 391 PPM. One might ask, what was man’s impact on CO2 levels back then? Fewer people, no industrial revolution, certainly no fossil fueled cars, planes, trains, trucks, power plants. We have 4.6 times less carbon now than then.
This so-called greenhouse theory, and I emphasize, theory, is based on carbon’s impact. I think we have disproved that here today. Of all the so-called greenhouse gases, 97 percent is water vapor and clouds! God controls that. Or Mother Nature, for you non-believers.
Global Warming will be real in the future, though. Consult Revelations 16:8. "And the angel poured out the fourth vial upon the sun, and power was given unto him to scorch the men of the earth with fire." Now that’s Global Warming. And God doesn’t have to adjust the carbon level first to make that happen.
