Australian come out with Co2 facts.

Wow, only 0.04% of the earths atmosphere is CO2. That doesn't seem harmful, but then again, if 0.04% of your mass was potassium cyanide, you'd be dead.

If carbon dioxide makes up only a minute portion of the atmosphere, how can global warming be traced to it? And how can such a tiny amount of change produce such large effects?

The Australians are the world's largest producers of CO2 per capita and have become pretty good at spinning the global warming argument to suit their agenda.

If we scratch the surface though, we can see through the charade and come to realize that their arguments are mostly based on their own personal economics.

The video uses the logical fallacy of False Equivalence. It assumes that all gasses contribute equally to global warming. But they don't. Nitrogen, Oxygen, Methane Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide - these all have different amounts of heat they can trap. They wouldn't be grains of rice, in proportion to the others some would be grains of rice, others ping pong balls, baseballs, softballs, basketballs - and that suddenly changes the picture they were painting doesn't it?

Then when the video was finished with that, it started with more [knight] by neglecting that when CO2 leaves the atmosphere, it dissolved the ocean leading to acidification. That's when I couldn't watch the video any longer because of my laughter.

Yeah, right, poison. Speaking of false equivalence...

But let's try this one. See CO2 as a guy standing in the middle of a room with a bic lighter. How big is the room?

I'm going to postulate a room the size of a school gymnasium. :wink:

Ok, I'm most likely wrong, but how wrong? I sometimes wonder. And it does raise a legitimate question of how do we see how much heat is actually being offered in a way our minds can fathom it.

I know this. The pushers of the warming hypothesis had to invent an idea of seeing the heat as being magnified by positive feedbacks from water vapour to make their imagined catastrophes possible. They've never been able to support this secondary hypothesis by scientific method though.

This would be a horrible inaccurate postulation. As mentioned, CO2 accounts for 0.04% of the earths atmosphere, that is to say there are 250,000 times the volume of other gases than CO2. The volume of a bic lighter flame is approximately 3cm3. For your model to be accurate you should consider a volume that is 250,000 times that volume. 250,000 x 3 cm3 is 750,000 cm3. A box that is 1 meter on each side has a volume of 1,000,000 cm3, so it would be slightly smaller than that.
