Five points about global warming

There recently have been a number of letters discussing anthropogenic global warming published in the Sun. I would like to add my voice with the following five points.

1) There has been no global warming since 1998.

2) The statistic quoted that 97 percent of scientists support man-made global warming is simply false. This statistic came from a survey with the following numbers: 10,257 questionnaires sent; 3,146 replies received; 77 from climate scientists; 75 answered yes to the second question, “Do you think human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperature?”

3) There is no viable scientific theory to explain how the very small amount (about 4 percent) of man-made carbon dioxide in the atmosphere could cause global warming. This is a hypothesis, not a theory.

4) Water vapor is by far the most powerful greenhouse gas, responsible for more than 90 percent of the total warming effect. All of the advocates of man-made carbon dioxide causing global warming always ignore water vapor. If they did not, atmospheric carbon dioxide would be a small contributor to global warming.

5) The real agenda of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is revealed in a 2012 quote by U.N. official Christiana Figueres: “It must be understood that what is occurring here, not just in Doha (Qatar) but in the whole climate change process, is a complete transformation of the economic structure of the world. ... It should happen much quicker than it is happening, but it cannot happen overnight.”

She is talking about the transfer of wealth from developed countries to developing countries, including China and India.

There is much more evidence that global warming is not anthropogenic, but this is enough for now.
