From WUWT: There’s a new paper by Paulo Cesar Soares. The paper is entitled (rather dryly) ‘Warming Power of CO2 and H2O: Correlations with Temperature Changes’ (full text pdf here). But the observations and conclusions are rather devastating for the AGW hypothesis: The correlation between the amount of ‘waste’ CO2 deposited in our atmosphere and global temperature is very exactly ZERO.
Null. Nix. Nada. Zilch.
Or, in the slightly more professional prose of Dr. Soares:
The main conclusion one arrives at the analysis is that CO2 has not a causal relation with global warming and it is not powerful enough to cause the historical changes in temperature that were observed.
Which should put to bed all the panicky insistence by the GW-ers that the cold winter we’ve had (in Europe. And in the US. And in Russia. And in Eastern Asia) are exclusively local weather events, caused by… erhmmm… global warming.
And now, we start keeping a close eye on those politicians that want to continue bucket loads of our tax money on climate-projects. Let the reckoning commence.
