Challenging the basis of Kyoto Protocol
The Hindu, 16 July 2008
| Russian scientists deny that the Kyoto Protocol reflects a consensus view of the world scientific community.
As western nations step up pressure on India and China to curb the emission of greenhouse gases, Russian scientists reject the very idea that carbon dioxide may be responsible for global warming.
Russian critics of the Kyoto Protocol, which calls for cuts in CO2 emissions, say that the theory underlying the pact lacks scientific basis. Under the Theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming, it is human-generated greenhouse gases, and mainly CO2, that cause climate change. “The Kyoto theorists have put the cart before the horse,” says renowned Russian geographer Andrei Kapitsa. “It is global warming that triggers higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, not the other way round.” Read more

I am not a climatologist nor do I have any other degree relating to the weather or the planet, but sitting in front of a computer I have managed to discover that not only is global warming not caused by man, but global warming is not happening , in fact we have global cooling! There is a simple equation to work out if the planet is cooling or heating, if you have ice accumulation on land and sea levels are dropping then you have cooling, it may surprise you to learn that this is what is actually going on. I will explain all the supporting factors which are at present driving the planet to cool, as well as all the evidence of which there is plenty, to prove that the planet is in fact cooling. I include references so you can check my study.
My study have shown me that it is the unprecedented rise in volcanic activity that is driving the present climate change. Nobody really knows the cause of the greatly increased level of volcanic activity, just that it is going on. Volcanoes in the sea make up 80% to 90% of the earth’s volcanoes and these are the ones most active, especially those on the plate boundaries. They have hardly been noticed by most except that it appears warmer, the ocean has warmed and the CO2 rate is going through the roof .
Most of us are unaware however that ice has been accumulating in increasing amounts at the poles and the temperature has been declining there – despite many reports to the contrary.
