Home Letters To The Editor The publicity of physics of climate change is phony

As for the CO2 issue, our contribution is puny compared with that released continuously by approximately 100 active volcanoes around the globe.  (Mt. Pinatubo released more CO2 in its 1991 eruption than all of humanity contributes in five years.)  

The oceans contain roughly nine times more CO2 (that’s what sea shells are made from) than does our atmosphere. When the ocean warms, as by solar radiation, it gives off CO2; when it cools, it absorbs CO2 -- simple chemistry.  

Thus the parallel charts, but note that atmospheric CO2 always lags ocean temperature change.

It is not about climate; it is about alarming the populace into giving up its tax dollars, and individual rights to a central authority to save it from a fictitious catastrophe.   As H.L. Menken once said, “The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to control it”.
