Someday the world will wake up and laugh when we finally realize that the entire pursuit of economic ruin in the name of saving the planet from increasing carbon dioxide has in fact been a terrible joke. It is an unarguable fact that the portion of the Earth’s greenhouse gas envelope contributed by mankind is negligible, barely one-tenth of 1 percent of the total.
CO2 is no more than 4 percent of the total greenhouse gas envelope (water vapor is more than 90 percent, followed by methane and nitrous and sulfur oxides). Of that 4 percent, mankind contributes a little more than percent, divided among transportation, energy production, etc. Three percent of 4 percent is .12 percent.
And for that we are sentencing the planet to decades of economic devastation.
