“It has been calculated that a temperature rise corresponding to a 10 per cent increase in carbon dioxide will be sufficient to melt the icecap and submerge New York.”

So we raised atmospheric CO2 by not 10%, but 25% since 1950, and New York City somehow remains above sea level, the polar ice caps remain frozen, and this guy proves that calculations only matter when one has good data. Garbage in, garbage out (GIGO) even in 1959.

Also holy fuck those are some serious eyebrows!

Not disputing that there is an effect, but these prognostications remind me of the club of rome which calls for mankind's extinctions every decade or so. The dying of the forests, polar bears and what not. Agree that you have to have very good data to make such a bold call.

6 decades ago the scientific community was fixated on global cooling.

Edward Teller was a science denier.

"Joseph Fourier, in 1824, found that Earth's atmosphere kept the planet warmer than would be the case in a vacuum. Fourier recognized that the atmosphere transmitted visible light waves efficiently to the earth's surface. The earth then absorbed visible light and emitted infrared radiation in response, but the atmosphere did not transmit infrared efficiently, which therefore increased surface temperatures. He also suspected that human activities could influence climate, although he focused primarily on land use changes. In an 1827 paper Fourier stated, "The establishment and progress of human societies, the action of natural forces, can notably change, and in vast regions, the state of the surface, the distribution of water and the great movements of the air. Such effects are able to make to vary, in the course of many centuries, the average degree of heat; because the analytic expressions contain coefficients relating to the state of the surface and which greatly influence the temperature."[9]

"Eunice Newton Foote studied the warming effect of the sun, including how this warming was increased by the presence of carbonic acid gas (carbon dioxide), and suggested that the surface of an Earth whose atmosphere was rich in this gas would have a higher temperature."

"John Tyndall took Fourier's work one step further in 1859 when he investigated the absorption of infrared radiation in different gases. He found that water vapor, hydrocarbons like methane (CH4), and carbon dioxide (CO2) strongly block the radiation."

This is so 1800s. These scyentist didn't have computers how could they know anything.

While were on climate change...

I suggest you differentiate between pollution and climate change. Throwing everything into the same basket is part of the problem.

The pollution and destruction we are are affecting on our oceans is terrible.

Today, carbon dioxide has hit 420 parts per million and is rising rapidly.

Really? Too bad he's wrong, it's only 407 right now.

I also wonder what his definition of "rising rapidly" is? Look at the two year chart above. Looks pretty stable.

If only we banned automobiles and went back to horse and buggy right then and there....

"I won't believe any of this until after it has happened. Even then it might be fake news, because possibly libbie scientists will have created some simulation that they put me in making it appear that the oceans have risen 6 feet and populations of entire countries are disrupted. It's a liberal conspiracy I tell ya, I just know it !"

Ed Teller is a libbie cunt who doesn't have half the credibility of the PR department of BP!

Everyone knows that!
