There is a damn good reason why people like me have been dismissive of faulty and erroneous climate models predicting ever increasing temperatures…they were just making shit up. When they actually got off their chuff and started figuring shit out…wonders of wonders it turns out the Earth can cope quite well thank you very much without stupid mad things like carbon taxes and an ETS:
Scientists have discovered an “abrupt increase” since 1988 in the uptake of carbon dioxide (CO2) by the land biosphere, which comprises all of the planet’s plant and animal ecosystems.
Wellington-based scientist Dr Sara Mikaloff-Fletcher, from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, was part of the global research team investigating the distribution of CO2 emissions.
Ms Mikaloff-Fletcher said the breakthrough had taken scientists “completely by surprise”.
Although the findings were interesting, she said they created more questions than answers.
“We applied some really exciting statistical techniques … to look at how (the uptake of CO2 on land) is changing over time.
“We were completely taken by surprise (by the findings). It’s opened up a whole new series of questions.”
They reckon the findings don;t contradict existing science…I beg to differ. It absolutely challenges existing science and lefty whingers who constantly intoned that the Earth was at a tipping point, that it couldn’t cope…that we had to stop or else…
Well that’s bollocks because we don;t know what we don’t know…and the Earth has coped just fine without us meddling in the past with even higher concentrations of CO2.
I think National needs to drop the ETS now. The ETS¬†is going to have no affect on global warming. Maybe we need to make more¬†CO2 to slow the warming even more! While the “learned” ones think there is no¬†contradiction?
They are NEVER going to admit that they got the man-made¬†global warming theory wrong.
