“Why has Earth’s temperature stayed so stable? Global temperature has stayed within a narrow band for at least the last half billion years. During that time the planet has seen meteor strikes, and millennia long widespread volcanic eruptions, and huge forest fires, and oceans disappearing as continents were lifted out of the sea, and huge changes in the land cover, and all manner of good, bad, and ugly events. Each of these events had a large effect on the forcings. Despite all of that, despite all of the variation in the forcings and the changes in the losses during all of that geological time, the earth’s temperature hasn’t moved around much at all. A few percent. And the variation over the last 10,000 years has been less than ±1%. For a system as complex as the climate, this is amazing stability.” ~Willis Eschenbach [Sic]
I read this and decided to offer my explanation for this wonderful stability.
I did not even suspect that I would listen to Willis in person at a Climate Change Conference and get to talk to him and tell him I found his quote to be very inspirational.
This Presentation will explain why I have concluded that we the people are not responsible for dangerous global warming or sea level rise.
And also, why CO2 is not responsible for significant climate change, other than the greening of the Earth.
CO2 is not likely responsible for any temperature change or sea level change that has ever been measured.
