New paper debunks ‘acidification’ scare, finds warming increases pH – Published in Climate of the Past

A paper published today in Climate of the Past reconstructs water pH and temperature from a lake in central Japan over the past 280,000 years and clearly shows that pH increases [becomes more basic or alkaline] due to warmer temperatures, and vice-versa, becomes more acidic [or “acidified” if you prefer] due to cooling temperatures. This finding is the opposite of the false assumptions behind the “ocean acidification” scare, but is compatible with the basic chemistry of Henry’s Law and outgassing of CO2 from the oceans with warming. 

Thus, if global warming resumes after the “pause,” ocean temperatures will rise along with CO2 outgassing, which will make the oceans more basic, not acidic. You simply cannot have it both ways:

Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Bill Gray: ‘CO2 increase is not nemesis as it’s portrayed’ – Public has been ‘brainwashed’

Despite increasing amounts of CO2 gas in the atmosphere, mean global surface temperatures have not shown any increase over the past 18 years.

In addition:

• Raw U.S. mean surface temperatures and daily high surface temperature records (without any tampering) have shown a weak decline since the warm 1930s period.

• Winter snow cover has been gradually increasing across the northern hemisphere in recent years.

• Antarctic sea ice is now at record high levels. Net global sea ice has shown no long-period downward trend.

• U.S. and global droughts, floods and severe weather have shown no significant changes over the past half century when atmospheric CO2 amounts have risen by 35 percent.

• The United States is currently experiencing the longest continuous period (nine years) without a major hurricane strike. Tornado activity has been below average the past three years.

I strongly recommend the reader consult the Internet blog Real Science by Steve Goddard for much more documentation on the ever-increasing failure of the CO2 global warming projections.

Most weather-climate observations of recent decades are not following the predictions of nearly all the 30 or so global numerical climate models and the continuous alarmist global warming pronouncements of nearly all U.S. and foreign governments, and nearly all the world’s media outlets. The general public, without the technical background to judge the scientific reliability of these many and continuous warming pronouncements, have been brainwashed. I am sure the coming decades of observations will add more verification for the discrediting of this catastrophic warming hypothesis.

I attribute the climate alterations of the past few centuries and decades to be primarily a response to the globe’s deep ocean current changes of which salinity variation is the primary driver and for which CO2 increases play no role.

Natural climate change and severe and unusual weather events have always occurred and will continue to occur in the future. The frequency and intensity of these events has not increased over the time that CO2 greenhouse gases have gone up.

There may be some very minor human influence to recent climate change but its magnitude is too small to be confidently measured and understood. Whatever human-induced climate change that may have occurred and will occur in the next 50-100 years will be quite small and largely benign.

There is nothing we humans …
