Paul Decelles - I am flattered (and disappointed)

I am flattered to see Dr. Paul Decelles -- in his LJWorld blog post -- cite my chart.

I am disappointed to infer that Dr. Decelles did not bother to examine more than the first chart in my post. If he had, he would have quickly found his arguments completely shattered by the very peer reviewed science which we now know was stacked against any and all skeptics of AGW hysteria.

Oh well…
I suppose I should be pleased that Dr. Decelles even examined a single chart. It’s a start. I wonder if that one chart at least gave Dr. Decelles some pause to contemplate all the “tipping point” hysteria.

P.S.) I was more flattered back when Dr. Tim Ball cited one of my charts (from this post).

My point was that Dr. Gehard was mixing time frames in making his arguments. What is relevant now is not carbon dioxide levels during the Cambrian but rather carbon dioxide levels in the time frame of human evolution.

Dr. Decelles,

Okay, kindly explain why an atmospheric CO2 level of less than 0.08% of the atmosphere is a threat to humanity. That, you may recall, is the absolute worst case scenario projected by the IPCC for the year 2100.

Clearly, historically, CO2 at 10 times that level (give or take) did not create a “tipping point” of runaway global warming. And, we know that each additional molecule of CO2 has exponentially less warming potential than the molecule which preceded it.

Furthermore, with all the CO2 we’ve already contributed, we’ve failed to produce any warming which is even remotely unusual (except, of course, in the fantasies of Michael Mann and the rest of the fully discredited Hockey Team).

So, why the panic? Or, is this just a fabricated “crisis” which Rahm Emanuel and crew would prefer not to “waste” (in their quest for absolute power)?
