University study: CO2 levels remained constant since 1850

Jason-125A central tenet of “climate change” dogma holds that increased emissions (2 billion tons a year in 1850 to 35 billion tons a year now) leads to greater CO2 levels in the atmosphere. But a new study from the University of Bristol could shake up traditional assumptions. The study suggests that CO2 levels have remained constant since 1850.
According to the University, “The results run contrary to a significant body of recent research which expects that the capacity of terrestrial ecosystems and the oceans to absorb CO2 should start to diminish as CO2 emissions increase, letting greenhouse gas levels skyrocket.” In fact, the trend in the airborne fraction has only been 0.7 ± 1.4% per decade (essentially zero).
Dr Wolfgang Knorr based his data on empirical records and historical data extracted from Antarctic ice, rather than quasi-scientific climate models (upon which “climatologists” have based their career). Knorr found that CO2 levels have remained constant at about 50%.
This isn’t a slam-dunk case against “climate change.” There’s still the issue of the “other 50%.” To put it simply, 50% of 35 billion is still greater than 50% of 2 billion. But if true, this new data calls into question the “emergency” of global warming. Activists like Al Gore and farcical movies like The Day After Tomorrow predict rapid climate change, predicated on the diminishing capacity of ecosystems to absorb CO2. Such a reduced capacity would cause an exponential increase in CO2 levels (leading to Hollywood-style doomsday scenarios). Note to alarmists: start looking for a new job.
But the China Post whines…“No we are belching to much CO2!”
The China Post front page today was totally dedicated to “Man-made Global Warming” Propaganda! It was a smart splice of Copenhagen “Save the Earth!” & “A new world is coming. ” On first glance it looked like a futuristic view on a Brave New World, they are now laying the foundation for there, with news about a new space tourism rocket of Virgin Label owner, and the regular AGW drivel. Have a look! It is awesome!
Message? Either “we save the Earth” or “we have to find a new home!” Wicked, no? Edward Bernays, the father of modern media brainwashing couldn’t have made it look more alarming. And that was not all. Inside the pages was printed another deception. “Greenhous gases harmful to humans!” Now, they are appealing to your fears that you may not survive, if we don’t unite under a global government and start paying global carbon tax to our new masters soon! Look for yourself!
And then it has a picture of a devastating snowy scene under it, because didn’t you know? Cooling spells are also caused by…yes you guessed it…man made global warming! Ha! Watertight! And the Taiwanese & Expatriate middle class and intellectuals just eat it up, like rats devour poisoned cheese! They also don’t think and check for themselves.
The didn’t check the real news in the alternative media, nor heard about “Climate gate” that ripped the pillows from under the comfortable funded AGW (anthropogenic/man-made global warming) scientific elite, that cooked up the false numbers. Why? Because they only read the China Post and watch perhaps CNN.
I tell you, these local language newspapers like CP, Bangkok Post, India Times, etc., are really important in the forming of politically correct global opinion. They preach to the decision makers in all these third World or Asian countries and their elites, and thus they set the stage for the NWO (New World Order!), that they probably haven’t heard about either.
All these non Western newspapers are controlled, edited, or owned by Western Power Elite, and do their bidding. The China Post is owned by some Mr. Jack Huang, who is probably appointed by the Wall Street Journal corporation that controls the China Post.
