Physicist Jim Peden, in late 2007 wrote an article explaining why the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW), aka man-made global warming is a hoax. The article achieved wide readership because Peden explains the science behind his assertion in a way that one need not be a physicist to understand it. The entire article is worth reading, but I think where he describes how CO2 absorbs the long wave IR being emitted by the Earth and what CO2’s impact is on the greenhouse effect are very well explained. This starts at the “INTO THE LABORATORY, ITS TIME TO GET TO WORK. And he finishes that section off with this statement:
“Now, you can sit back and give yourself a pat on the back, because you now know more pure physics of the atmosphere than a lot of so-called “climate scientists”, and likely know more than almost all of the non-scientist Popular Journalists and other writers churning out panic-stricken books and newspaper articles on the subject. And for sure, you now know a lot more than Al Gore.”

There might be global warming or cooling but the important issue is whether we, as a human race, can do anything about it.
There are a host of porkies and not very much truth barraging us everyday so its difficult to know what to believe.
I think I have simplified the issue in an entertaining way on my blog which includes some issues connected with climategate and “embarrassing” evidence.
In the pipeline is an analysis of the economic effects of the proposed emission reductions. Watch this space or should I say Blog

PS The term “porky” is listed in the Australian Dictionary of Slang.( So I’m told.)
