Video Offers Global Warming Education Basics
If you’re feeling guilty about your so-called “carbon footprint,” you shouldn’t be. As explained by Elisa Pardo in a post at ClimateRealists.com and in this video*, a close examination of the numbers often tossed around by global warming alarmists reveals there’s no crisis to manage when it comes to man-made carbon emissions.
The goal of the decidedly-not-fancy video, she writes, is to give viewers a visual understanding of the numbers used to describe trace gas concentrations:
I think providing this kind of help is necessary because most people simply do not understand the numbers. No matter how often and how well we provide the correct numbers, most people don’t “get the picture,” because they aren’t familiar with parts per million. They are familiar with percent, and we should extend that familiarity to parts per million. The hockey stick graph was used to get a false message across effectively; it was called “visually arresting” and “iconic.” We should have a visually compelling video that provides an immediate understanding of the surprisingly small contribution of carbon dioxide from human activity.
If people could see visual representations of the tiny concentrations, I think the chances are good that they would also see the absurdity of the claims of impending climate disaster from only 12-15 parts per million of carbon dioxide from human activity.
Those who still don’t get it should take a look at the graphic below which shows the amount of natural carbon dioxide emissions versus man-made emissions in terms of billions of metric tons. It appears, along with a lot of other useful information in the document, FIVE FACTS About Global Warming, from the organization, NoCapandTrade.com.
