The fact that the acceleration of global temperature increases is probably not anthropogenic is no excuse for not adopting the precautionary principle. Forget carbon trading. It’s time to stop polluting the planet and it’s possible NOW with the introduction of “zero-point” or “free energy” technologies, hydrogen (from water, NOT petrol) and solar, both high tech PVs as well as low-tech hot water heating.
BTW, I wonder if these climate scientists have factored oxygen (02) depletion into their computer modelling. When free oxygen in the atmosphere combines with carbon to form C02, it is no longer able to form ozone (03). Any ideas on this out there in cyberspace???

New Study Explodes Human-Global Warming Story
10 Dec 07 – As much of the U.S. is being blasted by vicious ice storms, a blockbuster report published in a prestigious scientific journal insists that climate warming is both natural and unstoppable and that carbon dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant.
Writing in the International Journal of Climatology of a publication of Britain’s Royal Meteorological Society, professor David H. Douglass (of the University of Rochester), professor John R. Christy (of the University of Alabama), Benjamin D. Pearson and professor S. Fred Singer (of the University of Virginia) report that observed patterns of temperature changes over the last 30 years disagree with what greenhouse models predict and can better be explained by natural factors, such as solar variability.
The conclusion is that climate change is “unstoppable” and cannot be affected or modified by controlling the emission of greenhouse gases, such as CO2, as is proposed in current legislation.
According to Dr. Douglass: “The observed pattern of warming, comparing surface and atmospheric temperature trends, does not show the characteristic fingerprint associated with greenhouse warming. The inescapable conclusion is that the human contribution is not significant and that observed increases in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases make only a negligible contribution to climate warming.”
According to Dr. John Christy, “satellite data and independent balloon data agree that the atmospheric warming trends do not exceed those of the surface,” while greenhouse models “demand that atmospheric trend values be two to three times greater.”
Dr. S. Fred Singer said: “The current warming trend is simply part of a natural cycle of climate warming and cooling that has been seen in ice cores, deep-sea sediments, stalagmites … and published in hundreds of papers in peer-reviewed journals.
How these cyclical climate take place is still unknown, but they “are most likely caused by variations in the solar wind and associated magnetic fields that affect the flux of cosmic rays incident on cloudiness, and thereby control the amount of sunlight reaching the earth’s surface and thus the climate.”
Singer said at a recent National Press Club meeting in Washington that there is still no definite proof that humans can produce climate change.
