Global Warming In A Nutshell


·       Alternate warm and cool periods have occurred every 1,500 years or so for a million years.


·       Previous Roman and Medieval warm periods were warmer than the present warm period.  There were no catastrophic effects.


·       The Earth’s average temperature is not correlated with carbon dioxide, but is correlated with the activity of the Sun.


·       Carbon dioxide is beneficial to plant life and therefore beneficial to animals and human beings.


·       It would be counterproductive to subsidize uneconomical forms of energy, in a fruitless attempt to minimize global warming by limiting carbon dioxide.
