O.K. folks if you were holding your breath because Al Gore told you that CO2 was causing global warming…you can exhale again. The only thing CO2’s causing is the expansion of Al Gore’s net worth.

A new peer-reviewed study by Professor Qing-Bin Lu of the University of Waterloo, proves carbon dioxide ( what comes out of our lungs every time we exhale) was not the cause of the global warming trend (which he says ended 11 years ago).

“the observed data show that CFCs conspiring with cosmic
rays most likely caused both the Antarctic ozone hole and global
warming. These findings are totally unexpected and striking, as I was
focused on studying the mechanism for the formation of the ozone hole,
rather than global warming.”

Those Global Warming Hoaxers are going to have a hard time chewing on this one, because according to the good doctor its chlorofluorocarbons (a gas made composed of carbon, fluorine, and chlorine) not CO2 which raised world-wide temperatures between 1950 and 2002.  CFCs are already known to deplete ozone (remember when we had to stop using certain aerosol cans because they were putting a hole in the ozone layer?).  Lu’s 
analysis suggests that CFCs were also the key driver in global
climate change, rather than carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The total amount of CFC’s ozone-depleting molecules decreased around 2000. Which is also when that hole in the Ozone layer started closing. Correspondingly, the global surface temperature have also dropped. On the other hand,  the CO2 level has kept rising since 1850 and now is at its largest growth rate (which means some of you never held your breath-SHAME!)

“Conventional thinking says that the emission of human-made non-CFC
gases such as carbon dioxide has mainly contributed to global warming.
But we have observed data going back to the Industrial Revolution that
convincingly shows that conventional understanding is wrong,” said
Qing-Bin Lu, a professor of physics and astronomy, biology and chemistry
in Waterloo’s Faculty of Science. “In fact, the data shows that CFCs
conspiring with cosmic rays caused both the polar ozone hole and global

“My calculations of CFC greenhouse effect show that there was global
warming by about 0.6 °C from 1950 to 2002, but the earth has actually
cooled since 2002. The cooling trend is set to continue for the next
50-70 years as the amount of CFCs in the atmosphere continues to
decline,” Lu predicted

Sorry Mr. Former Vice President. But–hey you can always try to patent that internet you invented.

Lu’s theory has been confirmed by ongoing observations of cosmic ray,
CFC, ozone and stratospheric temperature data over several 11-year
solar cycles. “CRE is the only theory that provides us with an excellent
reproduction of 11-year cyclic variations of both polar ozone loss and
stratospheric cooling,” said Professor Lu. “After removing the natural
cosmic-ray effect, my new paper shows a pronounced recovery by ~20% of
the Antarctic ozone hole, consistent with the decline of CFCs in the
polar stratosphere.”

Professor Lu was able to demonstrate a link between CFCs, ozone depletion and
temperature changes in the Antarctic:

“The climate in the Antarctic stratosphere has been completely controlled by CFCs and cosmic rays, with no CO2 impact. The change in global surface temperature after the removal of the solar effect has shown zero correlation with CO2 but a nearly perfect linear correlation with CFCs — a correlation coefficient as high as 0.97.”

Wow a correlation coefficient of .97 which by an amazing coincidence matches the doctored number  (97% of Scientist believing in the global warming hoax)  according to that phoney survey issued at the end of May.

Pretty soon the science will be settled….but not the way the hoaxers want.  But in the meantime feel free to breathe in and out as much as you wish.
