September 22, 2007

This review of the research literature by Arthur B. Robinson, Noah E. Robinson, and Willie Soon and published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons in 2007, found increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide during the 20th and early 21st centuries have produced no deleterious effects upon Earth’s weather and climate. Predictions of harmful climatic effects due to future increases in hydrocarbon use and minor greenhouse gases like CO2 do not conform to current experimental knowledge. The environmental effects of rapid expansion of the nuclear and hydrocarbon energy industries are also discussed.
