“Rejoice at Earth’s continued greening and increasing agricultural productivity thanks to CO2, now rising clear of plant-starvation level but still far below normal levels of the past 500 million years.”

CO2 is irrelevant to climate … but vital for life (photosynthesis)
Dr Roger Higgs
Ongoing GLOBAL WARMING (since 1820AD) is entirely natural, driven by the Sun.
The Sun’s biggest increase (1700-1991) in 2,000 years matches the strongest warming (1820-2017) in 2,000 years, delayed about 100 years by ocean thermal inertia (slowness of mixing). The delay has varied with time and is now about 75 years.
This ‘Modern Warming’ is the recovery from the Little Ice Age, coldest episode of the entire Holocene interglacial period (the last 11,650 years). We are now returning toward temperatures that were not unusual in the ‘Holocene Climatic Optimum’ (the clue is in the name, “optimum”, for humans). Modern Warming will continue until about 2065, corresponding to the Modern Solar Grand Maximum’s 1991 magnetic peak, plus the ~75-year time-lag.
Enjoy the slight extra warmth (throughout human history far more people have died of cold than heat). Rejoice at Earth’s continued greening and increasing agricultural productivity thanks to CO2, now rising clear of plant-starvation level but still far below normal levels of the past 500 million years. Cooling will then start ~2065, for at least 29 years, i.e. the 29-year solar decline from 1991 to date (2020).
There has never been a better time to be alive than today, in terms of average human longevity and proportion of humanity in poverty.
We need more CO2, not less
CO2 is irrelevant to climate …but vital for life (photosynthesis). Earth’s atmosphere is CO2-deficient, e.g. far below the level maintained by commercial greenhouse food producers…see Bullet 8B here …
Wake up, young people, they’re stealing your freedom. It’s a conspiracy, not a ‘theory’. Learn to think.
