Geologist – “The sun, not CO2, drives Earth’s climate”
Ica Age Now ^ | July 22, 2019 | Robert Felix

Devastating news for human-caused global warming proponents. “The sun, not CO2, drives Earth’s climate,” says Dr Roger Higgs, long-time consultant geologist and sedimentologist. Higgs bases his statement on four vital points: Global warming and cooling are driven by the sun, specifically by the solar-sourced Interplanetary Magnetic Field, which regulates incoming cosmic rays, which in turn govern cloudiness and thus global temperature (the breathtakingly elegant Svensmark Theory). Global temperature oscillations lag 25 years behind the causative solar magnetic fluctuations. This 25-year lag is due to ocean thermal inertia in remarkable agreement with the 15-20-year time lag estimated by Abdussamatov et al. 2012). The idea that CO2 is the main climate driver, despite its scarcity in Earth’s atmosphere, ie 400 parts per million, near plant-starvation level, contrasts starkly with CO2’s 1,000 to 4,000 ppm levels for most of the last 600 million years. Earth is now cooling. Global warming ended in 2016: proof that the sun, not CO2, drives Earth’s climate. Moreover, from AD500 to 1200, CO2 levels were anti-correlated with Earth’s temperature. “The reality is that man’s industrialization just happened to occur in a period of solar-driven warming, a mere coincidence, causing governments to needlessly spend trillions of taxpayer dollars on CO2-reduction efforts,” says Dr Higgs.

As a geologist, I tend to agree with him.

It doesn’t fit their agenda: they can’t “tax” the sun but they can tax CO2. It’s all about the money. So this guy will be ostracized and made a “non-player”.
Remember: two things insane commie libs are really good at: lies, lies, lies and stealing/spending other peoples’ money.

Cue the Sheldon Cooper geologist jokes from the anthropocentric global warming hoax promoters.

And I, as a 45 years of experience Geologist, agree. It is something that I discovered in Geology 101. DUH!

Since CO2 has been determined to be a pollutant and even poisonous, there should be a push to completely eradicate it from our atmosphere!

I just want to have those scientists have to come back with the reply that CO2 is the key to life on our planet. Then we can get into an argument about quantities.

Notice the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere — 400 parts per million.

Paragraphs are your friend.


Devastating news for human-caused global warming proponents.

“The sun, not CO2, drives Earth’s climate,” says Dr Roger Higgs, long-time consultant geologist and sedimentologist.

Higgs bases his statement on four vital points:
Global warming and cooling are driven by the sun, specifically by the solar-sourced Interplanetary Magnetic Field, which regulates incoming cosmic rays, which in turn govern cloudiness and thus global temperature (the breathtakingly elegant Svensmark Theory).

Global temperature oscillations lag 25 years behind the causative solar magnetic fluctuations. This 25-year lag is due to ocean thermal inertia in remarkable agreement with the 15-20-year time lag estimated by Abdussamatov et al. 2012).

Earth is now cooling. Global warming ended in 2016: proof that the sun, not CO2, drives Earth’s climate. Moreover, from AD500 to 1200, CO2 levels were anti-correlated with Earth’s temperature.

We’re also experiencing a period of sunspot minima, which has a bearing on this stuff.

They should also heavily tax/fine people who exhale CO2 ...

Donn’ tell the Lib’s that the sun is in control of the Earths climate.That will give them a mental breakdown knowing that they could empty the entire treasury and have no effect at eliminating global warming/cooling or climate change.

““The sun, not CO2, drives Earth’s climate,”

A clue for the clueless.

The Sun has always been the big determinant of Earth's climate. Why? Because the Sun's radiation output affects the atmosphere enormously. Remember the famous Maunder Minimum of 1645 to 1715, when we had no sunspots and Europe suffered from very cold and long winters?

He is partly correct. The earth has its own inherit equilibrium. The sun, the ocean, earth core magnetosphere, volcanic activity, gravity, barometric pressure, eliptical orbit, earth tilt, etc.

The ocean alone is one of the main reasons for earths stable climate. None of the other planets have oceans and therefore have very volatile temperatures.
