Atmospheric Physicist Dr. Ed Barry: ‘Our biggest threat comes not from human CO2 emissions but from people who believe what is not so’

Berry: 'Humans caused only 3 percent of the CO2 increase since 1958. Nature caused 97 percent. Even if we stopped all human CO2 emissions, we would have no effect on climate. Natural CO2 emissions and absorptions are each 40 times human emissions, and the small difference determines whether CO2 rises or falls. Nature easily compensates for human emissions. Claims that human CO2 emissions have “tipped” some “natural balance” is a doctrine of eco-religion but has no basis in physics. AIRS satellite data show warmer oceans, not humans, produce most CO2 emissions, and America’s vegetation absorbs more CO2 than its humans emit.'
Berry has a Ph.D. in atmospheric physics and is a former National Science Foundation program manager for weather modification.
