Check out this graph of the way CO2 increases and
reduces again on a yearly basis. Look how it is that
CO2 levels can drop precipitously on a YEARLY basis.
Think of what that means? The earth moves closer to
the sun and then further away from the sun since its
orbit is eliptical. Now our hydrocarbon industries are
working all year long. So as much CO2 as we put in
the air it is simply powerless to stop this yearly drop.
This yearly cycle is very familiar.
Imbedded energy in the ocean peaks and troughs yearly.
The sea level peaks and troughs yearly.
The average air temperature peaks and troughs
And all of this driven by the eliptical orbit.
If the story we are getting in the general media
was true we wouldn’t see a shape like this.
We might see CO2 levels increasing
and then going into plateau….. WITHOUT ANY DROP.
We might see CO2 growing slowly
and then growing quickly on a yearly basis.
What this means is two things.
Human CO2 output is small in relation to what nature
can do. Man is impotent to stop any yearly drop in CO2.
It also means that we will be very hard put to keep
CO2 levels up to EVEN THEIR CURRENT LEVELS
during the Landscheidt minimum.
I’d be happy if someone can fault me
on my logic here.
I was hoping for a carbon-enriched atmosphere
that would help us through the cold times.
The logic of it all implies that CO2 will soon plateau
and then drop.
In the end we will see all these metrics plateau
and then drop but not all at the same time.
Irradiance from the sun peaked, I believe ,
in about 2001.
Imbedded oceanic energy as measured
by the Argos floats peaked late 2003 I think.
If you take out 1998 because of El Nino
we might think of air temperature peaking at 2005.
Sea level may have peaked already
as the yearly sea level peaks for 2006 and 2007
were about the same.
CO2-levels are still on an upward level of growth
but that won’t last.
CO2-levels should, by my logic, peak
somewhere in the mid-teens one would think.
Which is a very sad outcome.
CO2-levels clearly CAN drop precipitously.
Hopefully our hydrocarbon industry will make the drop
gradual and non-catastrophic.
We ought to expand these industries as best we can.
