Fwd: CO2 from volcanos


Oy!!



Of course, the pros will say this is a sham and the nos will say I knew this all along....make up you own mind, I did!!!



Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention “Global Warming” any more, but just “Climate Change” - you know why?  It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.
The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes - FOUR DAYS ONLY by that volcano in Iceland, has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon.

 Professor Ian Plimer, Australian mining geologist, could not have said it better!
If you've read his book you will agree, this is a good summary.
 

 

Are you sitting down?


Okay, here's the bombshell.  The volcanic eruption in Iceland, since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you.
Of course you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow, and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans, and all animal life.
 
I know, it's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of: driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kid's "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cents light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs...well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.
 
The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes - FOUR DAYS ONLY by that volcano in Iceland, has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon.  And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud any one time - EVERY DAY.
 
I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in its entire YEARS on earth.  Yes folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over one year – think about it.
 
Of course I shouldn't spoil this touchy-feely tree-hugging moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keep happening, despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.
 
And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud but the fact of the matter is that the brush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years.  And it happens every year.
 
Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping new carbon tax on you on the basis of the bogus “human-caused” climate change scenario.
 
Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention “Global Warming” any more, but just “Climate Change” - you know why?  It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.
 
And just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme – that whopping new tax – imposed on you, that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.  It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.
 
But hey, relax, give the world a hug and have a nice day!
 
PS: I wonder if Iceland is buying carbon offsets?

That eruption did not even negate the CO2 impact of the air traffic it disrupted. There's no way this e-mail is even close to accurate.

FactCheck: "But according to USGS, human activities release at least a hundred times more CO2 every year than all the world’s volcanoes combined."

This old forward again? Are we forgetting that Volcanos actually cool the earth by spewing sun blocking debris?

Because they do.

These are, of course, long debunked zombie climate denialist lies.

Plimer's oft cited book of nonsense is a collection of bogus assertions - bogus because they are not backed by evidence and are contradicted by the science and empirical data in the published, peer reviewed literature.

Now if the statement about Pinatubo emissions were true, one would expect a dramatic spike in the Keeling curve starting in 1991. There is no such spike (or any spike at all) as one can easily verify:

Keeling curve

There is a definite problem with the functioning of American's brains. The global warming/climate change issue is such a good example of this. It could be from the years of fear-based media telling us 24/7 to be afraid of everything. But I keep thinking that the rise in autism rates and the rise in cognitive disfunction are related.

ferschitz said...

To Thx for Fish: in all seriousness, you might be "on" to something with the concomittant rise in autism rates & rise in cognitive dissonance.

USA "free market" glibertarians love to wallow in a fact-free fantasy world, where all their denials of factual reality come true. If there's some *inconvenient fact* that you wish to ignore: go ahead! Keep clapping louder, and I'm so sure that Tinkerbell will make all your wishes come true, including the one where you can endlessly remain a child like Peter Pan.

Ok, let's forget the science, since all the scientists in the universe can't convince people who don't really understand (or even want to understand) how science works.

Try this:

Exxon spends millions of dollars funding the "global warming is a hoax" lobbies.

The longer they can distract or confuse the public and obstruct or buy off legislators, the more money they stand to make. At your expense.

Sadly, I've had those arguments with well-educated, intelligent people, and the response is always, "Everyone else is getting paid off by Big Green! Al Gore brainwashed everyone!"

"Everyone else is getting paid off by Big Green! Al Gore brainwashed everyone!"

This is one of those things that really chaps me. They can and do make claims like this, as if there is such a giant amount of money to be made in low carbon lightbulbs that it was worth bribing every scientist on earth, but they would NEVER admit that the super profitable companies like Exxon would have any financial incentive to pay to make up bogus shit in order to protect their bottom line.

These same people want unlimited corporate money in politics and claim its not really "corrupting", its just "free speech", but they'll swear up and down that the solar panel industry has brainwashed the entire scientific community. It's like banning pocket knives as dangerous but ignoring the fact that everyone else has an uzi.
