“CO2 IS warming the planet,” says Gates. We must drop our CO2 emissions to near zero. See video
Honestly, I really do appreciate everything that Bill Gates has done for the world, from dragging us into the computer age to funding education to teaching good nutrition in Third World countries to fighting ebola and aids.
But Bill has been seriously – I mean seriously! – mislead concerning the connection between CO2 and global warming
Look at this chart of just the past 5,000 years.
It was 4°C warmer than today during the Minoan Warm Period, even though fossil fuels had not yet been discovered.
It was also about 4°C warmer than today about 7,000 years ago, and again 8,000 years ago, again, most likely with no contribution from humans.
Now look at the CO2 levels during the past 11,000 years (below). Do you see any correlation between CO2 levels and temperature?
Rapid shifts in climate happen regularly with or without any human contribution, and rapid cooling leads to death and destruction.
Please, will someone bring this information to Bill Gates’ attention? He is being conned.
