Climate Change: Empirical Results of Nature
Pieces of the Climate Change Puzzle
Runaway climate change Unrealistic
Another disappointing feedback. The more we learn about them, the more pesky (for Warmists) these feedbacks become
A new study is set to rock the boat again by calling into question one of the more frightening global warming scenarios: "runaway climate change." Under this scenario, rising temperatures speed up processes that catastrophically increase the rate of global warming – a positive feedback loop.
What is really going on?
The pattern of climate change over the past million years likely involves complicated interactions between different parts of the climate system, as well as three different orbital systems. The first two orbital systems are the orbit's eccentricity, and tilt. The third is "precession," or a change in the orientation of the rotation axis.
But There is More...
Between 1850 and 1990 the global-mean temperature at the surface of the Earth warmed by approximately 0.5°C (about 1°F). During the same period, the amount of carbon dioxide measured in the Earth's atmosphere increased by about 25 percent, as a consequence of our ever- increasing use of fossil fuels.
Still, more factors were obviously perturbing the climate system than the lone hand of greenhouse gases. The global-mean temperature did not rise steadily: statistical analyses of the temperature record since 1850 reveal significant year-to-year and decade-to-decade variability. Moreover, what is known of the longer climatic record suggests that surface temperatures may have been systematically increasing since the late 17th century, well before the onset of the Industrial Revolution, when greenhouse gas concentrations first began their upward climb.
Well, Again; What is REALLY CAUSING EARTH CLIMATE CHANGES?
OK, fasten your seat belts. This will turn into a book later. The earth';s climate changes are the result of many different factors as noted above. However, a MAJOR cause of earth climate change is the results of physics! Physics tells us when something is compressed, it is heated. When something expands, it releases heat (cools).
Given the above dynamics, consider the earth's orbit. The orbit exposes the earth to cyclical gravitational forces from the sun, moon and planets. The position and alignment of the sun, moon, and planets affect the earth's climate.
No, this is not Astrology. this is science. We all know the moon's affect upon the earth causes the rise and fall of the ocean (tides). When the gravitational forces of the sun, moon and planets are aligned, the gravitational forces are greatest. The gravitational forces compress the earth. When the gravational forces are not as great, the earth expands.
- As a side note, the gravitational forces also affects the weather, volcanoes and earthquakes.
- We are on the downside of a natural occurring warming trend.
Utilizing the K.I.S.S. principle (keep it simple stupid), I will stop here.
Earth's Warming and Cooling Climate Change has many factors that affect the degree of change. The biggest influence is the gravitational compression and expansion of the earth that drives the earth's climate change! When the earth experiences the greatest gravitational forces, it heats, when it is not, it expands and cools.
