Arctic Warming

The fact that the Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the plant is evidence that the warming is not caused by increased levels of CO2. Recent satellite images show CO2 does not vary by more than about 10 ppm from place to place at any given time. The greenhouse effect of CO2 is mostly masked by water vapor and water vapor is scarce at the poles, so the theory predicts more warming at the poles. But UAH temp data show that most of the warming is at the North Pole, and virtually none of it at the South Pole. This weighs against CO2 being the primary cause of Arctic warming.

Changing data to verify a model used to be regarded as academic fraud. We have nearly 40 years of the best possible observations. The satellite temperature records of the lower troposphere do show that the Arctic is warming much faster than the rest of the world. CO2 is well mixed in the troposphere. Why would CO2 cause the Arctic to warm dramatically but not the Antarctic to hardly warm at all? That is one of the best arguments against CO2 being the main driver of recent “global” warming.

CO2 caused global warming isn’t global unless it is actually global.
