Global warming due to CFCs not CO2.

Post by bindeweede » Mon Nov 02, 2015 1:19 pm

A new study says.
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are to blame for global warming since the 1970s and not carbon dioxide, according to new research from the University of Waterloo published in the International Journal of Modern Physics B this week.

I will look forward to commentary on this.

If it's true does it prove the deniers are right or wrong? :con
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con

Here's a contrary opinion: http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/0 ... ?mobile=nc
This sensationalist headline is often repeated with little mention that Lu’s claims are not new, and have not held up to scientific scrutiny in the past. In fact, Lu has been promoting his theories about CFCs for years, and mainstream scientists have found no merit in them. Critics have said Lu makes a fundamental scientific error by confusing correlation with causation, and does not effectively challenge the physical evidence of the warming effects of CO2, a body of knowledge built up over 150 years

Is it warming? Yep.
Are we to blame? Yep.

Wrong on either count I'd say!

"Qing-Bin Lu, a professor of physics and astronomy, biology and chemistry in Waterloo's Faculty of Science"

Somewhat of a renaissance man...

The skeptical bells were ringing, but my hearing-aid batteries were flat...
