Dear MP: explain or abstain February 4, 2010Posted by BlueGreen in Deception, Doesnt Understand, Misrepresentation.
If our politicians can’t explain this graph, how can they vote for Kevin Rudd’s ruinous plan to slash emissions?
Family First Senator Steve Fielding has now sent all Senators the graph, which shows the world cooling over the past eight years despite a rise in the emissions we’re told are warming the world to hell. And he’s challenged them as he challenged hapless Climate Minister Penny Wong.
This runs counter to the assumption underpinning the CPRS which says that increasing carbon dioxide emissions are the leading cause of global warming. Given the Rudd Government has failed to explain this obvious contradiction I can’t understand how any member of the Australian parliament can vote for an emissions trading scheme.
No Bolt. It’s actually you that clearly does not understand the graph or the science. The statement: This runs counter to the assumption underpinning the CPRS which says that increasing carbon dioxide emissions are the leading cause of global warming is false. It isn’t true and has never been true. The IPCC does not expect that measures of global temperature will always be linearly increasing or perfectly correlated with CO2 increase. You made up your own scientific theorem.
Additionally, the fact that you ignore or can’t see the clear correlation of CO2 with temperature shown in the very graphic you are referring to underscores the point first made: You don’t understand the graph or the science.
