A Response To “A CO2 Oddity”

By Joe Bastardi I see that Willis has referenced an idea I posed on a blog from another source so I wanted to make sure for WUWT I am clear.…

Slight, beneficial warming from more carbon dioxide!

In radiation physics that means adding more CO2 or water molecules will bring modest warming that will benefit plant growth, and thus all life on Earth. More CO2 and H2O…

Study suggests no more CO2 warming

Precision research by physicists William Happer and William van Wijngaarden has determined that the present levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and water vapor are almost completely saturated. In radiation physics…

Corona-induced CO2 emission reductions are not yet detectable in the atmosphere

Based on current data measured in the energy, industry, and mobility sectors, restrictions of social life during the corona pandemic can be predicted to lead to a reduction of worldwide…

AFR: We Must Reduce CO2 Emissions to Prevent Bats Passing new Coronavirus Diseases to Humans

At least I think that is what they are saying. My question – why not simply exterminate the bats, if they are such a threat to human health?

Interview series of Will Happer

Professor Happer discusses why the impact of CO2 is small on the earth surface temperature. The effect of CO2 saturates as the amount of CO2 increases even to the 2X…

Claim: 23 Million Year Old Fossilized Leaves Offer Proof of CO2 to Greening the Planet link

From the we told you so department. The links between rising carbon dioxide levels, and greening trends have been supposedly confirmed by fossilized leaves from a 23 million-year-old forest. Researchers previously…

Fossil leaves show high atmospheric carbon spurred ancient ‘global greening’

A 23-million-year-old leaf preserved in a onetime New Zealand lake bed, key to past atmospheric conditions. One can see veins, glands along the teeth, and holes gnawed by insects, with…

Update: Global Man-made CO2 emissions 1965 – 2019, BP data

Introduction Every June BP publish their statistical review of world energy. https://www.bp.com/en/global/corporate/energy-economics/statistical-review-of-world-energy.html One element of their comprehensive set of spreadsheets is a table of CO2 emissions by world countries since…

Ocean uptake of CO2 could drop as carbon emissions are cut

Shrinkage due to COVID-19 may provide case in point Earth Institute at Columbia UniversityShare Print E-Mail Volcanic eruptions and human-caused changes to the atmosphere strongly influence the rate at which the ocean…
