Bring all the Troops Home,
Really? So I'm sure you're aware of "Snowball Earth" (650 - 750 million years ago), where our earth was nearly entirely covered in ice and temperatures plummeted rapidly. What brought us out of this phase? A naturally occurring rapid increase in volcanic and seismic activity. Ice core data shows that immediately after the Snowball Earth period, our levels of C02 naturally increased from volcanic activity by 350 times that of our modern day pollution levels.
Secondly, it's hilarious how Global Warming advocates throw out Carbon Dioxide as the main cause of global warming just because it's something humans are producing more of than current volcanic activity. Just so you know, the main greenhouse gas and the main contributor to warming effects is water vapor. Water vapor accounts for about 36% of all greenhouse effects. Carbon Dioxide accounts for like 15% of the warming effects caused by greenhouse gases.
Furthermore, Global Warming activists say in response to volcanic activity not having anything to do with it, "Oh, well we produce hundreds of times more C02 than a Volcano produces." Yes, they are right about this, unfortunately they failed to miss the biggest proponent--Water Vapor. The composition levels of most volcanic activity is about 60% water vapor and around 10-15% Carbon Dioxide. Volcanoes are producing more water vapor than we ever could, and they are doing it faster than we ever could.
Here's a breakup of what gases are actually being influenced by humans, and in what percentages:
The chart speaks for itself.
So in conclusion, here are the facts:
- We as humans have gathered approximately 100 years of weather evidence (on a globally accurate scale, more like only 40 years). When compared with the timescale of earth (in billions of years), our measurements are a fraction of a fraction (8.791 X 10^-9 %), or .000000008791 %. A good analogy of what we're trying to do would be to look at a digital movie. A typical digital photograph can contain over 9 million pixels, each with their own color and shade. A movie runs at about 30 Frames Per Second. If we have a 2 hour movie, that's 7,200 seconds X 30 FPS = 216,000 frames. To get the average pixels that we're talking about, that would be 216,000 X 9 Million = 1.944 x 10^12, or 1,944,000,000,000 pixels. To get a similar percentage population, we would be taking about 17,089 pixels grouped in one small section of a single frame towards the end of the movie. With this data, we're attempting to claim we know what the entire movie was about, or what trends took place. We simply cannot limit ourselves by saying "We're causing this!" just because something radical is happening that hasn't happened in 100 years, or a thousand years, or hell, a million years. The timescales we're dealing with are much larger than we can even comprehend.
- Our Earth was once completely frozen, and on it's own, without any human interference, volcanic activity picked up on its own and naturally raised C02 levels to 350 times the current levels (with included human interference). This shows that drastic weather processes happen ON their own without any effect from us, and in quantities much larger than we're capable of affecting.
- Water Vapor is the #1 Greenhouse Gas in quantity and in effect (because of quantity).
- Water Vapor is produced 99.999 % naturally, and only influenced by about .001 % by humans.
Global Warming being caused by humans is a complete farce used to propel political means and influence behavior on a large scale.
