CO2 lowers the global temperature. Lima Accord defunct!     Dr Pierre Latour shows using basic physics that the physics of radiating gases like CO2 lowers the global temperature  by about  -.086c/per doubling of CO2

The Lima Accord
                                      based  on the false assumption that the use of fossil fuel based CO2 will raise the global temperature the Lima Accord lacks legally binding requirements that force any of the signers to cut emissions by any particular amount.  Each country sets its own goals and timetables. Without legally binding language requiring significant cuts, countries can put forth weak plans amounting to little more than lip service.  For example one country could commit to cap---not cut---its emissions after 2050 and still be a party to the agreement. Another country could agree to cut emissions per unit of energy used over time, which would happen  naturally as energy technologies become more efficient or old power plants are replaced by new ones, but it would not have to agree to any real cuts.   No emission reduction commitment large or meager, is backed with the force of international law.  There are no penal ties for failure to meet greenhouse gas reduction commitments.  The Accord relies on peer pressure or shaming to convince nations who will quite possibly be led by very different governing parties in the future.

                         The 9000 delegates established a huge usage of fossil fuels to get to Lima, a waste of time and money.  As Christopher Booker in the Telegraph noted it was the Greenpeace vandals who provided a welcome diversion from the Lima gathering. Indeed these so called "environmentalists" desecrated Peru`s most sacred world heritage site by trampling over the 1500 year old Nazca Lines, a shocking disrespect to Peru heritage.  They now face the possibility of six years in jail.

Both temperature and CO2 much higher than present for 80 percent of last 600 million years

From Scotese  Professor of Geology University of Texas.     This negates the claims of the IPCC about levels being the highest since records began.   The"records"they refer to  are only the instrument readings which only began 1850.  The above graphic is the result of the use of proxies such as ice cores.  The alarmists statements are to scare the population.  Their statements are a deliberate deception and down right lies.

IPCC claim of increasing atmospheric CO2 causing global warming total nonsense! Proof see latest PSI report.

     Increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide is not causing global warming.  On 16 September 2012 the Arctic sea ice extent set a record minimum, since satellite recording began in 1979, of 3.41 million sq kms(1).  Two years later on 22 September 2014 the Antarctic sea ice extent set a record maximum of 20.11 million sq. kms(2)..   These events corroborate the trends in the satellite lower tropospheric temperature for the polar regions, latitudes 60 degrees to 85 degrees.(see Dr Roy Spencer`s web site(3))..   The data extends from December 1978 until October 2014, a period of 36 years.  It shows the North Polar region having had a rate of rise in average monthly temperature of 0.044096 deg C pa  while the South Polar regions had a rate of fall in temperature of 0.00014 deg C pa.

In contrast data from the station closest to the north pole at Alert  NW Canada(4) provides average monthly atmospheric CO2 measurements with a trend of +1.673 ppm pa for the period July 1975 to Dec 2013.  Data from the NOAA station at the south pole(5) gave  an almost identical trend +1.672ppm   pa for the recording period 1978 to 2013.

The north pole satellite temperature trend equates to a rise in temperature of 1.54336 deg C in 35 years while the Alert trend line equates to a rise in CO2 of 58.57ppm or 17.39%.
 The south pole satellite temperature trend equates to a drop in temperature of 0.0049 deg C in 35 years period while the NOAA data trend line equates to a rise in CO2 of 58.52ppm or 17.47%.   Trend line calculations are quoted here because of the difference in seasonal variations between the north and south poles due to the large differences in land area and vegetation cover which generates those variations.                                                                                                 So here is clear evidence that not only does increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration not cause global warming of the earth surface, as exhibited by the south polar region, but the surface temperature is independent of a change in CO2 .   The IPCC claim of increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration causing global warming is patently false!

NCEP temperature data at odds with alarmist predictions!

Greenhouse gases are not needed! The sun does it all! Stefan Boltzmann equation

                      The IPCC alarmists assume that the earth is flat and that the sun shines 24/7. However we live on a sphere rotating once every 24 hours. the earth is not flat and the sun does not shine at night. Solar energy input is 1370w/m2. Reduce for albedo(0.3) so adsorption is 1370x7/10 = 960w/m2.  This to be divided over a hemisphere so the average is 480w/m2 which is more than enough for 33 celsius. This completely negates the IPCC assumption that but for greenhouse gases the earth surface would be 33 degrees colder! also most of the energy interchange on the earth is by conduction, convection and latent heat exchange----not by radiation.  It is water vapour that causes the mean daily maximum and minimum temperatures to be lower because its radiating properties work against the gravitationally induced temperature gradient in the troposphere.  this lowers the gradient and thus lowers the supporting temperature by about 10 to 12 degrees

                 (Stefan Boltzmann equation for hemisphere:
                                        480=sigmaT4    sigma=5.67x10-8.   this gives T as about 316K more than enough for 33 celsius.  greenhouse gases are not needed!)
