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 1965.  For the purposes of this post, the CO2 emissions data provided by BP here is assumed to be correct. That data is here and…

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 absorbs carbon dioxide, says a new study. The ocean is so sensitive to changes such as declining greenhouse gas emissions that it immediately responds by…

CO2, the Chinese virus and the profiteers of doom

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley By the time you read this, the monthly Mauna Loa CO2 concentration will probably have been published. The profiteers of doom have been delighted by the global Chinese-virus lockdown, which many of them would like to be permanent. As John Christy reported here yesterday, in March the UAH dataset maintained…

Continued CO2 Emissions Will Impair Cognition

From Cires Rising CO2 causes more than a climate crisis—it may directly harm our ability to think Monday, April 20, 2020 As the 21st century progresses, rising atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations will cause urban and indoor levels of the gas to increase, and that may significantly reduce our basic decision-making ability and complex strategic…

Will Humanity Ever Reach 2XCO2? Possibly Not

Reposted from Dr. Roy Spencer’s Blog February 1st, 2020 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. Summary The Energy Information Agency (EIA) projects a growth in energy-based CO2 emissions of +0.6%/yr through 2050. But translating future emissions into atmospheric CO2 concentration requires a global carbon budget model, and we frequently accept the United Nations reliance on…

What if there is no Climate Emergency ?

Reposted from edmhdotme What if there is no Catastrophic Risk from Man-made Global Warming ? What if Man-made CO2 emissions are not the “Climate Control Knob” ? What if Man-made CO2 emissions really are a non-problem ? But what if there is a real Global Cooling Catastrophe in the offing ? It is the propaganda…

The Silly Notion of “Speed Limits for Ships”

By Steve Goreham Originally published in TheT&D. Occasionally a report appears which claims to be wisdom, but after careful analysis, offers solutions that don’t make much sense. Such a report was issued earlier this month by United Kingdom consulting firm GL Reynolds, titled “The multi-issue mitigation potential of reducing ship speeds.” The report proposes that…
