Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?

Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better!
If you’ve read his book you will agree; this is a good summary.

PLIMER: “Okay, here’s the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland .
Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you.

Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

I know….it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs….. well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days – yes, FOUR DAYS – by that volcano in Iceland which has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time – EVERY DAY.

I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt. Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Yes, folks, Mt. Pinatubo was active for over one year – think about it.

Of course, I shouldn’t spoil this ‘touchy-feely tree-hugging’ moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change scenario.

Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’ anymore, but just “Climate Change” – you know why?

It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull**** artists got caught with their pants down.
And, just keep in mind that you might yet be stuck with an Emissions Trading Scheme – that whopping new tax – imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.

It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.

  1. I read some of Plimer’s comments a few years ago – just after the Iceland volcano eruption. The AGW True Believers did NOT listen then and they will NEVER think, let alone believe, that CO2 is NOT a pollutant.

    It is very hot and dry in many parts of British Columbia – water restrictions in Vancouver and many other areas. Vancouver is covered in a smoky haze right now – again putting several times more CO2 into the atmosphere than has been “saved” over several generations.

    But, the alarmists will always say that CO2 is a pollutant – as Dr Tim Ball has said, “GIGO – Gospel In, Gospel Out”.

  2. Richard Mallett

    Which particular volcanic eruption in Iceland is he talking about ?

    What are the figures for the CO2 emissions from that volcano in four days, and from human emissions in the previous five years ?

    What are the figures for the CO2 emitted from Mount Pintubo in 1991 ?

    By what global temperature record has the planet cooled by 0.7 degrees in the past century ? That’s presumably from 1914 to 2014.

    • RM – can you spell google? or Bing, or Duckduckgo? He is OBVIOUSLY referring to the eruption in 2010 which closed down most European and UK airlines for four days because of the ash in the air, and the DREADED CO2.

      • Richard Mallett

        So what are the CO2 figures ?

        • RM – can you spell google? or Bing, or Duckduckgo?

          • Richard Mallett

            Will they tell me the CO2 figures ? Why didn’t Plimer quote them ? Why doesn’t the Mauna Loa graph show a massive spike in CO2 in 1991 and 2010 ?

            • luisadownunder

              Richard, there are many sites you can go to to verify the facts, as outlined by Prof. Plimer.
              His writings, on such matters as anthropogenic global warming, CO2 emissions etc, are easily found by searching on Google, or any other search engine for that matter.
              Also try Lord Monckton of Brenchley. His studious research and accurate graphs will impart all the information you need.

            • Richard Mallett

              Well, I did ask a simple question – why wasn’t there a massive spike in the CO2 measured at Mauna Loa in 1991 and 2010 after the volcanic eruptions at Mount Pinatubo and Eyjafjallajökull ?

              See the graph from 1960 at http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/trends/#mlo_data

              That should be a simple question with a simple answer, right ?

              I don’t know if Monckton also makes the claims that Plimer does, that :-

              “The volcanic eruption in Iceland .
              Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you.”


              “I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt. Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.”

              Extraordinary claims require extraordinary ecidence – right ? Where is Plimer’s evidence ?

            • Richard, volcano was spewing water vapor, SO2, silica and CO2 – AND: CO2 is NOT a greenhouse gas! The more it is in the atmosphere -> the more of it is washed by the rain, into the soil -> distilled water evaporates, CO2 stays into the soil, conditions the soil for better growing crops and trees! Referring to CO2 as a ”greenhouse gas” is a loaded comment!!

              #2: Mauna Loa is situated in ”volcanic area” – they wouldn’t know if it was an active volcano somewhere on the planet; if they didn’t watch the news. People in that observatory are used for reporting co2 level, because they are ”reliable comrades” not because is appropriate place!
              If you wan’t to know the amount of CO2 in your area, get yourself a gadget, it would be less than 260ppm – you’ll see that is got nothing to do with the numbers 405ppm, reported by Mauna loa!

  3. I admire Dr. Ian Plimer’s science. The AGW scam is only a small part of a worldwide “Secret Social Experiment” that united nations and national academies of science into a global “Orwellian Ministry of Consensus Scientific (UN)Truths” on 24 Oct 1945:

    Greeks had championed philosophy, science, democracy and therefore comprehended our FOURTH OF JULY SURPRISE & FIFTH OF JULY HANGOVER: National Academies of Science worldwide BETRAYED the public and basic principles of science after nations were united on 24 Oct 1945 to save the world from possible nuclear annihilation !

    1. The United States began with the “Declaration of Independence” on 4 July 1776.

    2. It was BETRAYED by the US NAS 169 years later, on 24 Oct 1945, because:

    _ a.) In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln had trusted and appointed a private, self-perpetuating group of distinguished scholars to advise the government on science and technology, without checks and balances – The US National Academy of Sciences.

    _ b.) Forty-nine years later, nations and national academies of sciences were united under the UN on 24 Oct 1945.

    _c.) During the secret, worldwide “Great Social Experiment” that followed (1945-2015), members of the US NAS and their home universities were BRIBED (allowed to benefit individually) by telling Congress how to spend the billions of dollars President Eisenhower would pour into the scientific-military-industrial complex during a frightening, if imaginary Cold War without revealing to the public that their lives and their fates were completely “in the hands” of a FORCE lying politicians and pseudo-scientists could not hide: NEUTRON REPULSION IN THE SUN’s PULSAR CORE


    [The Sun’s interior was changed from iron (Fe) to hydrogen (H) in textbooks, and Aston’s valid nuclear packing fraction was replaced with von Weizsacker’s deceptive nuclear binding energy.]

    3. Climategate emails in late Nov 2009 first showed many of us the sad state of government science.

    4. After hearing six years of official excuses for deceptive government science, now – on 4 July 2015 – there is little or no doubt:

    The US National Academy of Sciences Lincoln established in 1863 are now BRIBED with PUBLIC FUNDS TO BETRAY THE PUBLIC.

    That was the 2015 Fourth of July Surprise for those who still believe any of these post-1945 Orwellian Consensus Scientific (UN)Truths

    1. AGW Anthropogenic Global Warming
    2. SNM Standard Nuclear Model
    3. SSM Standard Solar Model
    4. BBC Big Bang Cosmology

    Greece may be leading us back from global tyranny to national self-rule, honest economy, and science.

    I love this

  5. OFFICIAL CHALLENGE to John and the rest of the braves:-” with best intention, prof Plimer gave blanks to the people that were supposed to stand up for the truth – reason Warmist are matching from victory to victory. Because the Skeptics didn’t ”test fired” their water pistols, made by Plimer! Here is the military drill, to taste fire the Plimer’s weapons”.

    The second link is the torpedo that will sink the Warmist Titanic, BUT: challenge to all; to read ”every sentence” in the first link; and see why the Warmist love Plimer’s followers (remember: closed mind is as closed parashoot, not very useful to the owner): https://globalwarmingdenier.wordpress.com/2012/08/25/skeptics-stinky-skeletons-from-their-closet/

    “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary ecidence – right ? Where is Plimer’s evidence ?”
    You are quite right, Richard. So why don’t you contact Ian Plimer and ask him?
    I am certain he will provide you with all the information you require. He is, after all, an expert in his field; and quite an amenable character, I understand.
    He writes numerous articles for a newspaper in Australia called “The Australian”; his articles are insightful and based on facts, in keeping with his area of expertise.
    “Cry me river” remarks, won’t get you answers, and I’m not sure what your area of expertise is, exactly.

  7. Richard Mallett
    Plimer was proven wrong, and he got stuck with 75000 copies of his book in the shed, so he has withdrawn from publicly fighting, regarding climate

    #2: ”climatology” is the illegitimate child of geology, nothing to do with meteorology. IF they stuck to digging minerals, would be honest profession. Plimer’s book is made from 1000 references, from 1000 crooks. They were declaring any 10m2 anomaly found in the soil, as ”global” event – were ignoring the honest laws of physics AND: for them every summer became ”global” warming, every winter ”global” cooling; because in the soil is no date for January one. That became precursor for the Marxist global warming in 2100.

    Ian Plimer is good as a person, but same as the rest of geologists, teaching kids all his life about phony past warmings / coolings => by his book, he directed the honest people to search for more and more warmings, instead of telling the public that: ”the overall global temp is very stable, nothing to worry about, Warmist are lying” In their brains, same as in a computer putting a wrong program – they cannot recognize truth – because Ian hardwired them, to believe in fairy-tales and reject / runaway from the truth.
    Otherwise: because the phony global warming is 100% wrong – people would have being screaming on the street Obama to be impeached by now, for helping, financing and supporting the Warmist Organized Crime. One day, when the truth is known that was ALL LIE, history will blame Plimer more than Algore!
