Why do we need to understand
Global Climate Cycles?

The NSI regards it as essential that this collected


expertise is being used in an attempt to
understand the natural causes of climate
change in order to evaluate the contribution of
natural causes to global change.

Contentions 1 &2
1:a Global warming is a natural part of earths cycles;

1b Anthropomorphic, climate change doesnt pose


significant enough input to the energy budget
system of Earths atmosphere and oceans to have
significant long term effect.

1c Global warming causes a rise in atmospheric co2


levels and not vise-versa.
2: Natural climate change is beyond mans ability
to affect and is mainly caused by solar cycles.

Recent Supporting Data:

Global temperature curves show a cool reversal


from ~1955 to ~1980), inferring that global
temperatures then were not driven by
atmospheric Co2,because Co2 levels rose
steadily during this period. Solar irradiance
(dimming) curves almost exactly match the
global temperature curve and satellite data
suggests that the earth has received increased
solar radiation over the past 25 years, coinciding
with the present 25year warm cycle.(6)
Supporting Historical Data: Temperature Charts
show a spike in 1940-1941(8)
Supporting Historical Data: CO2 in glacial ice
cores from Greenland Sigma sites show a
corresponding increase in 1943
[after the temperature spike]. (7)
Supporting Historical Data: Solar Activity peaked in
1938.[Prior to the temperature spike.
Further Supporting Data:

>Dr.Chyelek and associates, in 2006 published


LA-UR-06-0615 for:
Space and Remote Sensing Sciences/Los Alamos
National Laboratory.
This document; summarized:
Describes that it takes a prodigious boost in
energy input to raise the earths temperature.
The Type of change advocated by
anthropomorphic warming supporters could only
be had with radical changes in atmospheric
chemistry. Those same thermal changes are
readily had with slight changes in water vapor
and ice aerosols; combined with increased
solar activity.)(3)
Conclusion:

Times of high solar activity precede and


therefore drive temperature rises in the
oceans; which in turn release energy into the
atmosphere. The higher water temperatures
off gas higher amounts of CO2, which in turn
cause a synergistic effect. The amount of
green house gasses released by profound
warming ages in earths history exceed mans
capability to match.
Analysis 1:
The ice caps have melted before and will again; global warming will
have a net positive effect on the Earth.(3)
>Studies such as Prof.Ralf Bochert Et.Al for the Journal of
Plankton Research 1996 ,describe the tolerance levels of
plankton . These are highly adaptable and will thrive in lower
salinity; warmer seas. This rich food source will strengthen the
stocks of fish that are tolerant of lowered salinity. (9)
>Warmer seas will evaporate at a more uniform and higher rate;
thus imparting more water vapor to rain on arid lands. This would
reasonably be expected to increase the arable land available for
agriculture and render the earths climate warmer and wetter
which will further elevate agricultural productiveness. (7)
> We should forge ahead with plans for new sources of energy as
well as better / cleaner ways of doing business and living. This
needs to be done out of respect for our planet but not out of
misplaced fears; instilled in us by those who would use those
fears to manipulate us.

Analysis 2:

As shown in the Greenland GISP2 ice cores, late


Pleistocene abrupt temperature fluctuations
occurred in only 20100 years, clearly not caused by
atmospheric anthropomorphic CO2 because they
occurred thousands of years before atmospheric
CO2 levels began to rise due to human activity.
During these climatic changes, C14 production rates
also varied, suggesting the possibility of solar
changes.(6) These Carbon 14 variations also bring
into serious question the validity of radio-carbon
dating.
There is a direct correlation between sun activity and
global temperatures. IAW. Dr. Lansen. PHD. DNAL (4)
