Carbon dioxide does not cause global warming

Among the many false beliefs with which people have been brainwashed, the belief that human generation of carbon dioxide is causing the Earth’s atmosphere to heat up is one of the most pervasive.

It’s disappointing to see public officials like Brownie Newman forcing this false belief on the rest of us [“Buncombe Commissioners Set Bar High for Carbon Reductions,” Dec. 17 Xpress].

They do it by repeating, parrot-like, the same false assertions that they themselves have been brainwashed with, e.g., the science is settled — humans are causing climate change.

Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels formulated the principle of “The Big Lie.” If you choose a lie that’s big enough and keep repeating it over and over, the people will come to believe it. Such is the case with the big lie that CO2 caused by human activity is causing global warming, now deceptively termed “climate change.”

Just dress it up with an appearance of science and environmentalism and people will believe anything.

CO2 is not a pollutant and has never caused the atmosphere to warm. Even the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change admits that there has been no warming over the last 16 years.

The pursuit of energy efficiency is worthy, but basing it on a false premise is deluded.

    Right, and smoking doesn’t cause cancer, the world is flat and the sun revolves around it. Bury your head in the sand all you want but the big lie that is repeated over and over is the one that has been repeated enough that Mr. Ivey now believes it and is writing letters to MX to perpetuate.

    Cheer up, every year almost without fail some climate scientists get stranded in the ice or have to cancel their winter meeting due to unusually cold weather and Al Gore’s “the polar regions ice-free by 2013″ threats become more comical than frightening. The Earth don’t care.
