These pages are concerned with the response of atmospheric CO2 concentrations to a short pulse in emissions known as the CO2 Impulse Response Function or IRF.
The widely accepted CO2 IRF is wrong.
A more realistic IRF can be estimated using statistical methods. Predictions of of future CO2 concentration and global average temperature based on a revised IRF are shown in the above diagram. They are based on the Hubbert curve for “Peak Carbon”.
We conclude that:
A “do nothing” scenario will lead to temperatures well below the Kyoto target.
Government spending of billions of dollars on emissions reduction is wasted.
There is no “Climate Emergency”.
The world faces a massive energy shortage within the next few decades.
Ideally, the closely reasoned arguments on which these conclusions were based should be published in a reputable peer-reviewed journal. This is no longer possible. Our paper was cancelled. Scientific journals are now controlled by a “Woke” elite who do not tolerate dissent; peer review is no longer available to critics of climate orthodoxy (except in Russia).
