I assume that all of the CO2 the world is dumping into the atmosphere is causing some amount of global warming, and we should therefore be looking for ways to reduce these emissions. It’s not a good idea to be monkeying around with the Earth’s atmosphere and then waiting to see what happens. Moving to LENR Cold Fusion as the dominant power source on the planet will basically end the problem of runaway CO2 emissions. But what if global warming estimates are wrong and warming will not be nearly as bad as expected?
Researcher David Stockwell notes that, “Climate models can be seen as encapsulating the dominant theory, even though they are composed of many different theories regarding land, the ocean and atmosphere.”
The problem with the models is that they are not dealing well with the fact that there has been no global warming recently. If the pattern continues where there is a mismatch between measured temperature and model predictions, then we need a new dominant theory and new models.
Stockwell writes: “As shown in the figure above, a simple regression model of accumulated total solar insolation (CumTSI) with global temperature gives a higher correlation than greenhouse gas …”
So maybe a new model of global warming will show that the Earth closely follows what the sun is doing to it. Since the sun is our main source of heat, this sounds plausible.
But, again, even if global warming as a problem is overblown, it’s still a good idea to stop dumping huge amounts of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. Bring on the LENR reactors to replace fossil fuels!
