It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong.
- Richard P. Feynman
Climate experts like James Hansen tell us that we need to reduce CO2 to prevent natural disasters. That theory is easy enough to test, because CO2 levels used to be lower, and we know what the climate was like at 305 PPM CO2.
All indications are that the climate was much more extreme at lower levels of CO2. The years 1926 and 1927 brought almost daily catastrophes to the world, including the worst Mississippi River floods on record, and the worst floods in Vermont history.
According to NASA, 1927 was one of the coldest years on record.
Glaciers were rapidly disappearing, and experts predicted that Glacier National Park would lose its glaciers by 1950.
Canada’s glaciers were disappearing.
The Arctic was hot during NASA’s claimed coldest years on record, and scientists wondered if the North Pole was going to melt entirely.
Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers who sail the seas around Spitsbergen and the eastern Arctic all point to a radical change in climatic conditions, with hitherto unheard-of high temperatures on that part of the earth’s surface.
The Mississippi River floods were massive.
Germany suffered massive floods.
Both sides of the Atlantic suffered massive devastation. Note that communications were disrupted by solar storms.
In 1927, CO2 levels were very low. An endless series of disasters struck the world, and glaciers were rapidly melting. What we can conclude from all this is :
- The climate was not better at lower levels of CO2
- The climate would not get better if we reduced CO2 levels
- The NASA temperature record is complete garbage
