En klok (!) advokat og ingeniør har publisert en oppsiktsvekkende beregning over maksimal oppvarming CO2 kan ha forårsaket siden Lille Istid:The IPCC is wronghttps://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/12/11/the-ipcc-is-wrong/
Excerpts of summary:
A. The change in the Average Global Temperature for Land between 1880 and 2002 was 2.6oF. To effect such an increase requires an increase of 13.8 w/m2 in total Average Heating Power. The Maximum total increase in total Average Heating Power that the buildup of CO2 over this period could have effected is 1.6 w/m2 and the Maximum increase in the Average Global Temperature for Land that the buildup of CO2 over this period could drive cannot exceed 0.3 oF.
B. CO2 is not THE cause nor is it the primary cause of Global Warming
C. The Maximum increase in Average Global Temperature that a doubling of the concentration of CO2 from 400 to 800 ppmv can effect is 0.8oF. The IPCC’s predictions of 3.4oF to 7.9oF are 325% to 900% too high and this would require an increase in heating of 800% to 900% greater than that determined in accordance with the calculation set out in statement 3 above.
D. The IPCC is simply wrong.
