Hi I’m Scott Cimini and I’m a climate change skeptic.  You can debate the existence of climate change as much as you’d like but this article is not about whether I think it exists or not. Climate goes through many natural cycles and I intend to prove that human induced climate change is a myth.  Some scientists (politically motivated or not) believe that CO2 emissions are causing the earth’s temperature to rise and that is just completely false.

What really bothers me is that this has become a political issue.  You can never trust a politician.  They lie, mislead, deceive, and only look out for their best interests.  I believe that politicians are using climate change as an excuse to raise taxes, control your lives, and scare you into believing that we are creating a future apocalypse.  Al Gore is the most notable (ex) politician to lead the movement and has make millions of dollars on it as well.  He invests a lot of his money on alternative energy and “green” companies while at the same time demonizing oil companies and other companies who are the competition of these green establishments. 

In a dossier released by The European Foundation in 2012, there are 100 reasons explaining why climate change is natural and not manmade. 
I’ve chosen the reasons that I think are the most compelling to this argument: 

  • Man-made carbon dioxide emissions throughout human history constitute less than 0.00022 percent of the total naturally emitted from the mantle of the earth during geological history.

  • Warmer periods of the Earth’s history came around 800 years before rises in CO2 levels.

  • After World War II, there was a huge surge in recorded CO2 emissions but global temperatures fell for four decades after 1940.

  • Politicians and activists claim rising sea levels are a direct cause of global warming but sea levels rates have been increasing steadily since the last ice age10,000 ago

  • A petition by scientists trying to tell the world that the political and media portrayal of global warming is false was put forward in the Heidelberg Appeal in 1992. Today, more than 4,000 signatories, including 72 Nobel Prize winners, from 106 countries have signed it.

  • There is no scientific or statistical evidence whatsoever that global warming will cause more storms and other weather extremes

  • Rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere can be shown not only to have a negligible effect on the Earth’s many ecosystems, but in some cases to be a positive help to many organisms

  • Rising CO2 levels increase plant growth and make plants more resistant to drought and pests

  •  The manner in which US President Barack Obama sidestepped Congress to order emission cuts shows how undemocratic and irrational the entire international decision-making process has become with regards to emission-target setting.

  • In the United States , the cap-and-trade is an approach designed to control carbon emissions and will impose huge costs upon American citizens via a carbon tax on all goods and services produced in the United States. The average family of four can expect to pay an additional $1700, or more each year. It is predicted that the United States will lose more than 2 million jobs as the result of cap-and-trade schemes. 

  • It is a myth that CO2 is a pollutant, because nitrogen forms 80% of our atmosphere and human beings could not live in 100% nitrogen either: CO2 is no more a pollutant than nitrogen is and CO2 is essential to life.
