Presiding Judge: United Nations
Jury: National States of Head, Prime ministers, Parliaments, Main Stream Media
Prosecutor: UNFCCC, cochair IPCC
Accused: Carbon Dioxed, aka. CO2
Speaking for the accused: None recognized by the Court
Judge: -Prosecutor, please state your case.
IPCC: -Your Honor, we accuse CO2 of sneaking into the atmosphere and thereby increasing the atmosphere’s Greenhouse effect. Furthermore, we will show that at some point the raised level of CO2 will reach a Tipping Point, at which there will be no turning back to normal greenhouse effect for the planet. Beyond the tipping point, Global Mean Temperatures will continue to rise in an unctontrollable manner.
Judge: – Carbon Dioxide, how do you plead?
Carbon Dioxide: – Not Guilty, yor honor!
Judge: – IPCC, please proceed.
IPCC: – Thank you your honor. It is a well established fact that CO2 is a potent greenhouse gas.
CO2: – Objection, your honor. Hearsay!
IPCC: – As I was saying, a potent greenhouse gas. Our models show.
CO2: – Objection, Speculation!
Judge: – Overruled.
IPCC: – The models show that, at current pace, by the end of this century Global mean temperatures will have risen with a minimum of 4 degrees Celsius and quite possibly by as much as 8 or 9 °C. This will of course mean the end of life on the planet as we know it. We therefore ask the court to confine CO2, by all means necessary, at current levels and indefinitely. (triumphant sneer)
Judge: – Carbon Dioxde, your rebuttal, please.
CO2: – Thank you, your honor. First of all, let me give some background to the situation on planet Earth. It’s about 4.5 billion years old and has had three different types of atmoshperes. The first one, of mainly hydrogen and helium, was short lived and blown away from the planet by the Suns solar wind. The second one contained a high proportion of CO2, actually percent’s of the atmosphere gas mixture. Roughly 3.5 billion years ago life appeard on the planet in the form blu-green algae. They thrived on CO2 and produced Oxygen, O2, emitted into the atmosphere. Making it possible for the first proto-animals to breathe air. Since then, evolution has produced dinosaurs, birds and mammals.
The levels of O2 and CO2 have since varied considerably. Beside the natural variations of CO2 levels, there has been naturally occuring several ice-ages on Earth. These variations makes it necessary to point out that there is no status quo on Earth. Never has been, never will be. This is one of the things confirmed by the explorer Charles Darwin. Togehter with other discoveries, the theories of Thermodynamics was formed. In short they state that (i) movement is a property of energy, (ii) energy “deteriorates”, called entropy, (iii) when the entropy of all energy in the universe is completed, there will be no further movement and the temperature will be at absolute zero, 0°K. Described in a more popular fashion, life is movement and movement is change. Hence, status quo is the complete opposite to life. In an environment where natural change is ever present, it makes it very futile for humans to try to impose a status quo. It is also quite impossible for humans to know what status quo the planet would prefer.
On the facts of this case, I would like the court to recognize that the EPA in 1971 deemed CO2 an inert gas. This means CO2 does not interfere with other gases in the atmosphere in any way and certainly not in any adverse way. The EPA continued to state this assertion through the 70’s until the last years of the decade, when they went silent on the matter.
Since 1874 untill today there has been at least 21 documented reports warning of an imminent Peak Oil. They have all been wrong. At the Stockholm Conference in 1972, the socialist laden congregation decided to find a catastrophic scenario, in order to be able to coerce public opinion. In 1977 Springer press founded a magazine titled Climate Change. From then on a variety of scientists, politicians, government authorities, NGOs and business’ have tried to find a way to describe a Global threat to humanity and Earth. They have pointed at Ozone, Global Cooling, and finally settling on calling CO2 the culprit. Step by step the Elite of the world painted a Doom’s Day scenario from CO2.
These steps include, but are not restricted to, the Gaia theory by James Lovelock 1979, The Greenhouse Effecet, by James Hansen 1981, State of the World first issue 1984, Glasnost in the Sovet union, Atmospheric CO2, by Olson, Trace gas trends by Ramanthan, the Vienna convention 1985, Greenhouse effect by Svensson, Greenhouse effect by Bolin 1986, Our Comon Future, the Brundtland report, Perestroika in the Soviet union, Greenhouse gases by UNEP, Montreal protocol, 1987, Policies for responding to Climatic Change, by UNEP, Founding of IPCC 1988, Global Warming by World Watch Institute, Policy Options for Stabilizing Global Claimate, by EPA, FAR, First Assessment Report by IPCC, 1990. Since then the Elite of almost every nation in the World have been subscribing to the AGW, Gobal Warming, Climate Change narrative. Because they can make money and political power from it.
All dissent, all debate, all questions on the matter has been suppressed. Yet, the IPCC, nor any of all the nationally funded researches into the matter have been able to produce any evidence of an ongoing global warming caused by CO2 added by humans to the atmosphere. Not one! Every single model, every prediction has been falsified, proven wrong. Even if we go back 30 years and use the actual recorded data from reality, no model has been able to come even close to the mark, being the real data recorded up to this date. Most of them veer off course around 5 years from the starting point and never hit home again. They are sorely flawed.
The glaciers are not dwindling, some grow others reced. The polar ice caps are fine. A 30 year oscillation between north and south has been detected. The polar bears are fine. The coral islands are fine. Coral death and bleaching is not alarming, but continues with the normal non status quo rate. No tipping point has been identified. The release of communists, previously confined to the Soviet union and China, has resulted in a unparalleled call for government regulation of all daily life around the Globe.
Thanks to other environmental measures the air is cleaner, the waters are cleaner. Thanks to better accesibility to CO2 in the air, deserts are greening.
In summation, I declare myself, CO2, not guilty and call for an aquittal of all charges.
Judge: – Members of the jury, what is your verdict?
Jury: – GUILTY AS HELL!
Judge: – The court wishes to thank the jury for it’s thorough and impartial work. Your are hereby relieved of your duty. Y’all can pick up your bonus’ at the cashier’s desk on the way out. Bailiff take the prisoner out of my sight! Court’s dismissed!
