Equal Warming, 1900 to 1950 versus 1950 to 2018: Why the UN Knows the First Half was Natural (2020 April)

Mathematics and Statistics Professor Caleb Stewart Rossiter Helps You “Do the Math” of Logarithms CO2 has a logarithmic effect on temperature. Using log math, CO2 levels from 1950 to 2018 have 5.23 times the impact of levels from 1900 to 1950. That means there was no measurable warming from industrial CO2 emissions in the earlier…

The Two-Degree Limit

Author: Andy May | Published: Andy May Petrophysicist | Date: 19 July 2022 For decades We have been told that we must not let global warming exceed two degrees Celsius above the “pre-industrial” global average temperature. Recently the IPCC lowered this limit to 1.5°C. In the latest IPCC report, called AR6, pre-industrial is defined as before 1750, but…
