The continued theory by left-leaning Democrats, some in the U.S. government, and President Obama keep pushing that increased global warming is caused by man was disputed by former NASA scientist, Professor Dr. Leslie Woodcock, who said there is no direct evidence that carbon dioxide levels have increased over the past century, Breitbart News reported on Saturday.
Dr. Leslie Woodcock, an Emeritus Professor of Chemical Thermodynamics at the University of Manchester’s School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science said that he blames the green movement for inflicting economic damage on ordinary people.
Woodcock said, “The theory of “man-made climate change” is an unsubstantiated hypothesis. Water is a much more powerful greenhouse gas and there is 20 times more of it in our atmosphere, around one per cent of the atmosphere, whereas CO2 is only 0.04%.”
“Carbon dioxide has been made out to be some kind of toxic gas but the truth is it’s the gas of life. We breathe it out, plants breath it in. The green lobby has created a do-good industry and it becomes a way of life, like a religion,” said Woodcock.
The issue of so-called man-made global warming has been a topic of liberals for several years who use such false hypothesis in advancing their causes that has caused millions of people economic hardship when data proves otherwise, not to mention, failed alternative energy companies.
In 2012, Robert W. Felix, author and owner of the website, OfIceAgeNow, said and presented visual data of climate change over the past 10,000 years and that it has been warmer in the past than it is today and that warming and cooling cycles have gone on throughout that time.
Felix said, “GISP Greenland Ice Core Data shows that it has been warmer than today for almost all of the past 10,000 years. Not only warmer, it shows that temperatures have been declining in a zig-zag fashion for several thousand years.”
While environmentalists and left-wing liberals continue to state that man is the cause of the global warming, the data is proving otherwise. Several scientists as well as others, have pointed out through scientific facts, not theories, that the surface of the earth acquires nearly all of its heat from the sun, not from humans and the only exit for this heat to take is through the form of radiation.
Although environmentalists and liberals will dispute the claims, Woodcock said, “The temperature of the earth has been going up and down for millions of years, if there are extremes, it’s nothing to do with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it’s not permanent and it’s not caused by us. Global warming is nonsense.”
“If you talk to real scientists who have no political interest, they will tell you there is nothing in global warming. It is an industry, which creates vast amounts of money for some people,” said Woodcock
“The reason records seem to be being frequently broken is simply because we only started keeping them about 100 years ago. There will always be some record broken somewhere when we have another natural fluctuation in weather.”
