“Nature Doesn’t Give Us A Safe Climate That We Make Unsafe, It Gives Us An Unsafe Climate That We Make Safe” – How to be a climate thinker – Alex Epstein at Turning Point USA

In this video Alex Epstein cite studies in laboratories showing adding CO2 increase heat. What he failed to tell is, when adding CO2 they tend to also add infrared radiation (IR) and what they actually is measuring is the heat increase by the added IR radiation, not heat created by CO2 – because, as we know, CO2 doesn’t produce any energy (heat).

Radiation from CO2 in the atmosphere is caused by temperature, it’s not the reason for temperature.

He also touch on the diminishing influence of increasing Carbon Dioxide on temperature, something that has never been empirically demonstrated in nature.

“.. IPCC Published reports, (TAR3), acknowledge that the effective temperature increase caused by growing concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere radically diminishes with increasing concentrations. This information has been presented in the IPCC reports. It is well disguised for any lay reader, (Chapter 6. Radiative Forcing of Climate Change: section 6.3.4 Total Well-Mixed Greenhouse Gas Forcing Estimate) [1]. It is a crucial fact, but not acknowledged in the IPCC summary for Policy Makers[2] ..” Ref.: https://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/08/10/the-diminishing-influence-of-increasing-carbon-dioxide-on-temperature/

All that is only theoretical, it might as well be the opposite, ref.: The Four Known Scientific Ways Carbon Dioxide Cools Earth’s Climate

The surface of the earth cools by convection, wet and dry, the atmosphere cools by radiating energy out into space – Yes, there is a big difference!
