Alarmists are telling us 2016 will be record warm because of man made CO2. Reality shows it will indeed be warm, but not because of man made CO2. the term is called El Niño but now the El Niño conditions are soon all gone and the temperature has dropped at record braking phase the last few months.
Temperature in the atmosphere is given due to input of energy, pressure, gravity and mass. That is the reason the temperature on Venus is the same at the height of 50 km. where the pressure is the same as on the surface of the earth despite the Venus atmosphere consists of over 96% CO2.
Global Warming; 31,487 Scientists say NO to Alarm
The 97% Consensus? Global Warming Unmasked!
A psychologist’s scathing review of John Cook’s ‘97% consensus’ nonsensus paper
“Psychologist José Duarte writes: The Cook et al. (2013) 97% paper included a bunch of psychology studies, marketing papers, and surveys of the general public as scientific endorsement of anthropogenic climate change.
Let’s go ahead and walk through that sentence again. The Cook et al 97% paper included a bunch of psychology studies, marketing papers, and surveys of the general public as scientific endorsement of anthropogenic climate change. I only spent ten minutes with their database — there will be more such papers for those who search. I’m not willing to spend a lot of time with their data, for reasons I detail further down.
This paper is vacated, as a scientific product, given that it included psychology papers, and also given that it twice lied about its method (claiming not to count social science papers, and claiming to use independent raters), and the professed cheating by the raters. It was essentially voided by its invalid method of using partisan and unqualified political activists to subjectively rate climate science abstracts on the issue on which their activism centers — a stunning and unprecedented method. I’m awaiting word on retraction from the journal, but I think we already know that this paper is vacated. It doesn’t represent knowledge of the consensus.” More ..
