Interesting video: “Scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock from EADS Astrium visits the Royal Institution’s new Young Scientist Centre to carry out a simple experiment that shows how CO2 traps heat. ”
Of course, the BBC can’t help itself in bending over backwards to the point of breaking in its absurd scientific impartiality:
CO2, along with a range of other greenhouse gases, is often implicated in global warming. But what is its role in the greenhouse effect?
Yes, “CO2, along with a range of other greenhouse gases, is also implicated in global warming” — by the laws of physics!
Seriously, status quo media, can you just state the most basic physics plainly.
Try this from NASA climatologist (and one-time darling of the disinformers), Andrew Lacis:
The bottom line is that CO2 is absolutely, positively, and without question, the single most important greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. It acts very much like a control knob that determines the overall strength of the Earth’s greenhouse effect. Failure to control atmospheric CO2 is a bad way to run a business, and a surefire ticket to climatic disaster.
