The Climate Change Myth

URL: http://www.businessworld.in/businessworld/content/Climate-Change-Myth....
Date: 28 November 2011

Arguments by Plimer vs What the Science Says
"Climate's changed before" Climate reacts to whatever forces it to change at the time; humans are now the dominant forcing.
"CO2 is not a pollutant"

Through its impacts on the climate, CO2 presents a danger to public health and welfare, and thus qualifies as an air pollutant

"CO2 is plant food"

The effects of enhanced CO2 on terrestrial plants are variable and complex and dependent on numerous factors

"Human CO2 is a tiny % of CO2 emissions"

The natural cycle adds and removes CO2 to keep a balance; humans add extra CO2 without removing any.

"Water vapor is the most powerful greenhouse gas"

Rising CO2 increases atmospheric water vapor, which makes global warming much worse.
