The recent release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Summary for Policymakers (SPM) of the as yet, unreleased Synthesis report, has driven a flurry of catastrophic headlines ranging from ‘climate time bomb’ to ‘last chance for humanity.’ The IPCC’s mandate is to study the effect of human-caused climate change, not ALL causes of climate change. Indeed, Mother Nature is the largest climate change factor.
In the following science papers and this power point , Arthur Viterito, retired professor of physical geography, presents research on how geothermal/seismic activity may be driving recent warming – NOT carbon dioxide from human industrial emissions. The power point below is a compilation of Viterito’s previously published works.
This perspective is certainly worthy of consideration before the world embarks on a multi-trillion dollar trek to NetZero that is presently impoverishing millions of people with heat-or-eat poverty, and causing children to despair of their futures.
