Before Fossil Fuels Caused Global Warming, They Caused Global Cooling

Fossil fuels are tricky, but evil. In 1975, scientists said that fossil fuels were going to freeze us to death. Forty years later they now know that fossil fuels will burn us up.

    There’s a fairly simple reason for these many fearful proclamations, whose origins are rooted way back in time:

    Root Cause Analysis Applied to Societal Issues
    Author: Me

    Mankind applies Root-Cause-Analysis for industrial errors and issues to determine where the root problem resides. The process looks into all aspects in the chain that lead to the issue, including manufacturing defects, maintenance issues and of course the human element. Timelines are recorded throughout the process, revealing how long the problem existed, how it came to be and what actions are needed to correct the issue(s).
    For all of the issues plaguing society today, approaching these in a logical and straight-forward manner reveal the roots, which are definitely anchored in our past.
    We as humans are simply products of Nature’s diversity, the one and same that we celebrate in all of nature, including all living things, from plants and birds to insects and the entire Animal Kingdom. Nature produces variety in all species and sub-species in order to survive in varying environments, where some may flourish with changes as others are diminished or even eliminated. The diversity is a product of varying conditions that have happened over the millennia and have left their print in many ways, with the end result of producing the diversity needed for s survival.
    The variations we see in humans are certainly normal and as necessary as those seen in all of nature, to simply provide survival for at least part of the race, as the environment undergoes drastic changes.
    Unfortunately, a huge portion of humanity do not understand these fundamental facts, only because they do not understand nature and her built-in tools to develop diversity.
    The answer to asking how diverse is the human race, can be partially found by looking at the rest of Earths living species and how long we’ve been in our current form as a race, and the number of variations within our race.

    Since there are no doubts we are all products of nature’s diversity, our individual and herd traits can be traced to 10’s of thousands of years in the past.
    Our varying temperaments, levels of anxieties, fears (varying from mild concern to paralyzing), strengths, perceived weaknesses and intelligence levels can be traced to survival of the herd during challenges by nature throughout long periods of time. Our reliance in tribal survival through diversity of it’s population has been replaced by the thoughts of the forceful and persistent among us as our lives have become void of survival activities.

    The consequences of not understanding or ignoring our diverse past, leads to a repeat of death and destruction again and again.

    The larger animal kingdom is mostly void of the thought and emotions that lead to conflict amongst their own, so the big question is “will mankind accept reality and his fellow products of diversity”?

    As we continue along the same old path and the one that finds us in our current state, we can be fairly certain of our demise.

    It is quite ironic that our own intelligence in a diverse world, is what leads us to our end!

    Effects of Large Increases on Global Climate.


    Effects on the global temperature of large increases in carbon dioxide and aerosol densities in the atmosphere of Earth have been computed. It is found that, although the addition of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere does increase the surface temperature, the rate of temperature increase diminishes with increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. For aerosols, however, the net effect of increase in density is to reduce the surface temperature of Earth. Because of the exponential dependence of the backscattering, the rate of temperature decrease is augmented with increasing aerosol content. An increase by only a factor of 4 in global aerosol background concentration may be sufficient to reduce the surface temperature by as much as 3.5 deg.K. If sustained over a period of several years, such a temperature decrease over the whole globe is believed to be sufficient to trigger an ice age.

    The rate at which human activities may be inadvertently modifying the climate of Earth has become a problem of serious concern . In the last few decades the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere appears to have increased by 7 percent . During the same period, the aerosol content of the lower atmosphere may have been augmented by as much as 100 percent .

    How have these changes in the composition of the atmosphere affected the climate of the globe? More importantly, is it possible that a continued increase in the CO2 and dust content of the atmosphere at the present rate will produce such large-scale effects on the global temperature that the process may run away, with the planet Earth eventually becoming as hot as Venus (700 deg. K.) or as cold as Mars (230 deg. K.)?

    We report here on the first results of a calculation in which separate estimates were made of the effects on global temperature of large increases in the amount of CO2 and dust in the atmosphere. It is found that even an increase by a factor of 8 in the amount of CO2, which is highly unlikely in the next several thousand years, will produce an increase in the surface temperature of less than 2 deg. K.

    However, the effect on surface temperature of an increase in the aerosol content of the atmosphere is found to be quite significant. An increase by a factor of 4 in the equilibrium dust concentration in the global atmosphere, which cannot be ruled out as a possibility within the next century, could decrease the mean surface temperature by as much as 3.5 deg. K. If sustained over a period of several years, such a temperature decrease could be sufficient to trigger an ice age!

    Those results were bases on a climate model developed by none other than James Hansen, incidentally.

    OT. Tony I hope you don’t mind, but I have an issue I’m trying to resolve.

    Will require 3 posts to explain

    Its concerning a recent Greenland isotope reconstruction

    Trouble is , it doesn’t match up to GISP much at all.

    Here is the graph from the study

    • AndyG55 says:

      When I try to match it up with the tail end of GISP, I get the combination graph below.

      Not a very good match, and the 1940-50 peak (which is of course removed from GISS/HadCrut, stands out like dogs b***s

      Nevertheless, the Argon/nitrogen isotope test CLEARLY shows that we are still well below MWP temperatures.

    ps.. remember that UAH shows no Arctic warming this century until the El Nino.

    I guess you guys don’t get it. You see, since the air pollution was threatening so much, including global cooling, the government stepped in and successfully ended all pollution, thus halting these dire events.

    So….all we must do now is give governments free reign to control our further polluting, and the warming crisis will disappear. QED.
