For decades now, we have heard just about everything regarding climate change and that big, ole’, mean chemical compound known as “CO2” (that’s not actually mean at all and is necessary for life on Earth). Everyone from climate “scientists” to politicians to celebrities to fake news reporters have cried about rising CO2 levels in our atmosphere and constantly demand that people living in the Western World give up our liberties and our rights to the government in order to “fight” climate change (yeah, still haven’t heard a solid argument as to why we should do that or how it would actually solve anything. It’s very obviously a communist ploy).
That particular chemical compound, though necessary for life on Earth, has been so demonized that people demand we reduce the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere to 0% (which would kill us) or as close to it as possible. But climate scientists have, for a couple of years now, noted that CO2 is rather negligible when it comes to global warming.
In 2015, a seminal paper was published in Geophysical Research Letters that said that a rising concentration of CO2 in Antarctica causes a negative greenhouse effect aka cooling.
“For most of the Antarctic Plateau, GHETES is close to zero or even slightly negative; i.e., the presence of CO2 increases radiative cooling. Over Greenland, the greenhouse effect of CO2 is also comparatively weak but invariably positive.”
So back in 2015, a couple of scientists were saying that CO2 was actually causing COOLING rather than warming, at least in the southern hemisphere. They also acknowledged that such emissions were pretty “weak” in both hemispheres.
So then why did Greta Thunberg yell at a bunch of white people that they were destroying the climate when CO2 hasn’t actually been shown to be even all that relevant when it comes to climate change? The entire “fight” regarding climate change revolves around reducing CO2 emissions. Multiple parts of the Green New Deal include doing exactly that, and yet, since at least 2015, there are scientists that argue that CO2 was pretty “weak”, at least in the poles?
But regardless of the phoniness of the entire climate change cult, let’s move on to another piece of news (that is actually not all that new) that might intrigue us to some extent:
“Carbon dioxide: sometimes it is a cooling gas, sometimes a warming gas,” according to a research article from 2018.
Here’s what the abstract of the article says: “The laws of physics, namely the gas laws, were applied to the gases in the atmosphere that act as ideal gases. The results show that as air temperature increases from winter to summer, CO2 is a cooling gas and from summer to winter, it is a warming gas regardless of its concentration in the atmosphere. This is contrary to the commonly held belief that CO2 always warms the atmosphere… The effect of CO2 methane and the trace gases on atmospheric temperature and climate change is so small as to be negligible.”
The actual paper also states: “… it is the gas laws that cause CO2 concentration in dry air to fall by 26 ppmv from 403 to 377 ppmv from January to August… from January 1 to July 1 at Hamburg, the temperature rises 19°C… CO2 concentration falls 26 ppmv… water vapour rises by 9033 ppmv… and the H2O/CO2 ratio raises 25.4 units. This is conclusive evidence that from winter to summer, the warming by water vapor counteracts the small cooling by CO2. Conversely, from summer to winter, the warming effect of CO2 tends to warm the air as water vapor is cooling it. But the effects by CO2 each time are so small as to be negligible. This evidence comes to light because the gas laws show that in the atmosphere, CO2 concentration falls as temperature rises.”
Do you know what we call it here in Normalville when it gets hotter during the earlier parts of the year, particularly until mid-summer, and then it gets colder later in the year, particularly around winter? THE CHANGING SEASONS!
Revisiting some 3rd grade astronomy, the Earth revolves around the Sun in an elliptical pattern. The amount of time it takes for the Earth to revolve around the Sun is roughly 365 days, which tends to make up 1 year (it’s a little more complex than that, but let’s keep things simple for the sake of the argument). In that time, the Earth spins on its own axis and it tends to be kind of tilted (if you look at a globe, it’s made that way because that’s roughly how the Earth actually is spinning in space).
In the northern hemisphere at this present time, November of 2019, it’s autumn, or fall and it will be this way until December 21st, which is the first day of winter. In the southern hemisphere, however, it is spring, so it’s warmer.
The reason it’s this way is because of the tilting of the Earth in its revolution around the Sun. When it’s the summer months in the northern atmosphere, the northern hemisphere is “facing” the Sun, if you will. It’s tilted towards its direction. When it’s winter, the northern hemisphere is tilted away from it. This also causes the day to be longer or shorter depending on the point of the year.
As a result of this tilting of the Earth, one hemisphere receives more sunlight than the other and therefore, receives warmer temperatures than the other. It gets colder during the fall and winter seasons and warmer during the spring and summer seasons.
How exactly has it taken these people this long to figure it out? And even then, I’m not entirely sure they actually know this (or at least, they act like it’s a non-factor).
That last paragraph of the recent research paper I quoted talks about what tends to happen during the different seasons, albeit from the perspective of carbon dioxide. The claim here is that carbon dioxide acts as a cooling gas during the warmer months and as a warming gas during the colder ones. And that may be so – I am not one to be able to definitively argue solidly against that – but the paper also mentions that the effect of the gas is so weak as to be negligible, so I don’t know how they don’t connect the dots and say “maybe it’s this way because of WHAT WE LEARNED IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ABOUT THE CHANGING SEASONS!”
And I get that a scientific paper can’t be so bland as to have such a conclusion using such simple words, but that is the conclusion people should be reaching! When we find that we have record highs during summer and record lows during winter, it’s not because of global warming or global cooling. It’s not because of our cars or our air conditioners or our planes or our cows. It’s not because of anything we are inherently doing or not doing to the planet. It’s because of the way God created the planet.
God knows what He is doing and knew perfectly well what was necessary for a planet to be able to harbor life naturally. He CREATED NATURE, after all. He created the planets, the stars, the galaxies and the entire universe, known and unknown. He knows how it all works and goes together, the intricacies of everything as minute as subatomic particles to the vast universe itself and all that exists.
It’s ridiculous that there have to be scientific papers looking into the activity of carbon dioxide to discover something we have known for a very long time about the planet and its seasonal behavior. Even the pilgrims understood the concept of growing your food for the winter. Even animals like bears, squirrels and other animals that hibernate understand the concept of stocking up resources for winter. Even the earliest of humans understood that when it got cold, you needed to put on some more clothes and when it got hot, you needed to wear less clothing or maintain cooler temperatures for yourself.
Even if they didn’t necessarily understand the concept of seasons, they still understood the concept of “it gets hot during a period of the year and cold during a different one”.
And considering what the paper says regarding carbon dioxide, I’d say that it has so little relevance as to require a different approach to the entire field. If CO2 is so negligible and weak, why are people even talking about it as though it’s Earth’s version of cancer? Shouldn’t people be a little more aware of the fact that it just gets hot during the summer months and cold during the winter months?
Rhetorical questions, of course, as we know the reason the climate change cult is even a thing. It’s not about facts or science. Even Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) has admitted that this ought to be considered more of a religion than a science. This is about feelings and believing in something.
Whereas Christians find salvation in Christ, climate cultists find “salvation” in government. They believe the government is capable of “defeating” climate change and that it should have as much power and resources as possible in order to do that. If along the way, all our civil and constitutional rights and liberties are stripped away, then that is an acceptable sacrifice in exchange for “security” against climate change.
Common sense like what I was using in this article makes no difference to these people. In fact, attempting to use common sense like this will brand you a “denier” and a physical threat to people’s safety. The Left is at the point where they think the very existence of dissenters is a threat to their well-being.
But reality has to bite them in the rear sooner or later. Either they wake up and recognize the truth of the Gospel or they stay asleep believing the falsehoods of the climate cult.

“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
