91 Year Old World Renowned Physicist Freeman Dyson Summarizes CO2 Effect on Planet Earth.

CO2 Climate Models Do not Account For Vast Energy That Goes In or Out as Water Changes Into Water Vapor Or Ice. 

By Paul Litely – 

See Paullitely.com for more proof and details. – 

It begins with the simplifying assumption that all forcing comes from Greenhouse Gas CO2 that cannot change state into liquid or ice at the Earth’s surface or in the atmosphere. CO2 
“Dry Ice” results when CO2 changes state into an ice without becoming a liquid first, and that occurs at MINUS 109 DEFREES at one atmosphere of pressure. This temperature/pressure combination does not occur naturally on Earth. The vast amount of energy absorbed or released when CO2 changes state from “Dry Ice” is used for convenient and effective refrigeration to Minus 109 degrees. Dry ice is made by compressing CO2 to extreme pressures while pulling the resulting heat out of it. It turns solid. This cannot happen anywhere in the Earth’s atmosphere.
Now, consider that CO2 remains a gas over the entire temperature range where Water has TWO naturally occurring state changes in the atmosphere – water to water vapor and water to Ice. Both of these state changes occur in normal atmospheric temperature and pressure ranges, and are acknowledged by meteorologists to be dominant forces in the Earth’s weather. 

Water Ice has temperature inertia, requiring vast quantum amounts of energy, to melt it. Liquid Water is the result of melting.  Water itself can absorb vast amounts of energy as liquid water until it vaporizes. Water also has temperature inertia when it is heated until it vaporizes, requiring another vast quantum of energy when it changes state to water vapor.

 In reverse, Water vapor Releases that vast quantum of energy when it condenses, as it does to make clouds and rain. Liquid water Releases vast quantum of energy when it freezes. Both of these state changes occur in naturally occurring temperature and pressure ranges constantly worldwide.

CO2 only has its gaseous absorption and radiation capacity to contribute, and at its 0,4% concentration in the atmosphere, CO2 cannot possibly drive water through its states, or even appreciably heat or cool the vastly larger concentration of Oxygen, Nitrogen, Water, and Water vapor, and Water ice in the dynamic weather atmosphere of earth, where humidity often approaches 100%. 

Taking the state changes of liquid water and ice and Water vapor out of the thermal energy exchange formulas in Earth’s atmosphere is to take the vastly dominant components of atmospheric heat energy transfer out. If you do that, then modeling atmospheric temperatures using just CO2 in its constant gaseous state is simple but so insignificant as to be meaningless. Weather modeling is based on understanding energy transfers, and it focuses on water, clouds, evaporation and freezing water ice. Yet, the popular IPCC based Anthropogenic CO2 driven model takes no account of water state changes, and claims that the 10% of CO2 contributed by humans can control it all. The basic assumption that water in all its states. Changing states, dealing in astronomical numbers of energy can be left out of ANY Earth Climate model is absurd.

Burt Rutan Presents his findings on the Real Climate Change Data 

It is not surprising that Burt Rutan, Aerospace Engineer, would be interested in the weather.  His aircraft have travelled nonstop around the world, and now into space.  Weather can make or break the flights of his innovative aircraft.

Burt Rutan has assembled data on the Earth’s Weather history and how Weather, including temperatures have been measured.  It is amazing to see what we do know about the Earth’s history.  Never before has all this information been presented in one place.  There are many revelations that come from looking at it all at once from the point of view of the possibility of Humans causing Global Warming, and how Dangerous it may be.

Nobel Prize-Winning Scientist Dr Ivar Giaever Who endorsed Obama now says President is ‘Ridiculous’ and ‘Dead Wrong’ on Global Warming

Nobel Prize-Winning Scientist Who Endorsed Obama Now Says Prez. is ‘Ridiculous’ & ‘Dead Wrong’ on ‘Global Warming’ 

Nobel Prize Winning Physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever: ‘Global warming is a non-problem’

‘I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you’re wrong. Dead wrong.’

‘Global warming really has become a new religion.’

“I am worried very much about the [UN] conference in Paris in November…I think that the people who are alarmist are in a very strong position.’

‘We have to stop wasting huge, I mean huge amounts of money on global warming.’

Dr. Ivar Giaever, a Nobel Prize-Winner for physics in 1973, declared his dissent on man-made global warming claims at a Nobel forum on July 1, 2015.

“I would say that basically global warming is a non-problem,” Dr. Giaever announced during his speech titled “Global Warming Revisited.”

Giaever, a former professor at the School of Engineering and School of Science Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, received the 1973 physics Nobel for his work on quantum tunneling. Giaever delivered his remarks at the 65th Nobel Laureate Conference in Lindau, Germany, which drew 65 recipients of the prize. Giaever is also featured in the new documentary “Climate Hustle”, set for release in Fall 2015.

Giaever was one of President Obama’s key scientific supporters in 2008 when he joined over 70 Nobel Science Laureates in endorsing Obama in an October 29, 2008 open letter. Giaever signed his name to the letter which read in part: “The country urgently needs a visionary leader…We are convinced that Senator Barack Obama is such a leader, and we urge you to join us in supporting him.”

But seven years after signing the letter, Giaever now mocks President Obama for warning that “no challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change”. Giaever called it a “ridiculous statement.”

“That is what he said. That is a ridiculous statement,” Giaever explained.

“I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you’re wrong. Dead wrong,” Giaever said. (Watch Giaever’s full 30-minute July 1 speech here.)

“How can he say that? I think Obama is a clever person, but he gets bad advice. Global warming is all wet,” he added.

“Obama said last year that 2014 is hottest year ever. But it’s not true. It’s not the hottest,” Giaever noted. [Note: Other scientists have reversed themselves on climate change. See: 

Politically Left Scientist Dissents – Calls President Obama ‘delusional’ on global warming


The Nobel physicist questioned the basis for rising carbon dioxide fears.

“When you have a theory and the theory does not agree with the experiment then you have to cut out the theory. You were wrong with the theory,” Giaever explained.
Global Warming ‘a new religion’

Giaever said his climate research was eye opening. “I was horrified by what I found” after researching the issue in 2012, he noted.

“Global warming really has become a new religion. Because you cannot discuss it. It’s not proper. It is like the Catholic Church.”

Concern Over ‘Successful’ UN Climate Treaty

“I am worried very much about the [UN] conference in Paris in November. I really worry about that. Because the [2009 UN] conference was in Copenhagen and that almost became a disaster but nothing got decided. But now I think that the people who are alarmist are in a very strong position,” Giaever said.

“The facts are that in the last 100 years we have measured the temperatures it has gone up .8 degrees and everything in the world has gotten better. So how can they say it’s going to get worse when we have the evidence? We live longer, better health, and better everything. But if it goes up another .8 degrees we are going to die I guess,” he noted.

“I would say that the global warming is basically a non-problem. Just leave it alone and it will take care of itself. It is almost very hard for me to understand why almost every government in Europe — except for Polish government — is worried about global warming. It must be politics.”

“So far we have left the world in better shape than when we arrived, and this will continue with one exception — we have to stop wasting huge, I mean huge amounts of money on global warming. We have to do that or that may take us backwards. People think that is sustainable but it is not sustainable.

On Global Temperatures & CO2

Giaever noted that global temperatures have halted for the past 18 plus years. [Editor’s Note: Climate Depot is honored that Giaever used an exclusive Climate Depot graph showing the RSS satellite data of an 18 year plus standstill in temperatures at 8:48 min. into video.]

The Great Pause lengthens again: Global temperature update: The Pause is now 18 years 3 months (219 months)

Giaever accused NASA and federal scientists of “fiddling” with temperatures.

“They can fiddle with the data. That is what NASA does.”

“You cannot believe the people — the alarmists — who say CO2 is a terrible thing. Its not true, its absolutely not true,” Giaever continued while showing a slide asking: ‘Do you believe CO2 is a major climate gas?’

“I think the temperature has been amazingly stable. What is the optimum temperature of the earth? Is that the temperature we have right now? That would be a miracle. No one has told me what the optimal temperature of the earth should be,” he said.

“How can you possibly measure the average temperature for the whole earth and come up with a fraction of a degree. I think the average temperature of earth is equal to the emperor’s new clothes. How can you think it can measure this to a fraction of a degree? It’s ridiculous,” he added.

Silencing Debate

Giaever accused Nature Magazine of “wanting to cash in on the [climate] fad.”

“My friends said I should not make fun of Nature because then they won’t publish my papers,” he explained.

“No one mentions how important CO2 is for plant growth. It’s a wonderful thing. Plants are really starving. They don’t talk about how good it is for agriculture that CO2 is increasing,” he added.

Extreme Weather claims

“The other thing that amazes me is that when you talk about climate change it is always going to be the worst. It’s got to be better someplace for heaven’s sake. It can’t always be to the worse,” he said.

“Then comes the clincher. If climate change does not scare people we can scare people talking about the extreme weather,” Giaever said.

“For the last hundred years, the ocean has risen 20 cm — but for the previous hundred years the ocean also has risen 20 cm and for the last 300 years, the ocean has also risen 20 cm per 100 years. So there is no unusual rise in sea level. And to be sure you understand that I will repeat it. There is no unusual rise in sea level,” Giaever said.

“If anything we have entered period of low hurricanes. These are the facts,” he continued.

“You don’t’ have to even be a scientist to look at these figures and you understand what it says,” he added.

“Same thing is for tornadoes. We are in a low period on in U.S.” (See: 

Extreme weather failing to follow ‘global warming’ predictions: Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Droughts, Floods, Wildfires, all see no trend or declining trends


Media Hype

“What people say is not true. I spoke to a journalist with [German newspaper Die Welt yesterday…and I asked how many articles he published that says global warming is a good thing. He said I probably don’t publish them at all. Its always a negative. Always,” Giever said.

Energy Poverty

“They say refugees are trying to cross the Mediterranean. These people are not fleeing global warming, they are fleeing poverty,” he noted.

“If you want to help Africa, help them out of poverty, do not try to build solar cells and windmills,” he added.

“Are you wasting money on solar cells and windmills rather than helping people? These people have been misled. It costs money in the end to that. Windmills cost money.”

“Cheap energy is what made us so rich and now suddenly people don’t want it anymore.”

“People say oil companies are the big bad people. I don’t understand why they are worse than the windmill companies. General Electric makes windmills. They don’t tell you that they are not economical because they make money on it. But nobody protests GE, but they protest Exxon who makes oil,” he noted.


Dr. Ivar Giaever resigned as a Fellow from the American Physical Society (APS) on September 13, 2011 in disgust over the group’s promotion of man-made global warming fears.

In addition to Giaever, other prominent scientists have resigned from APS over its stance on man-made global warming. See: Prominent Physicist Hal Lewis Resigns from APS: ‘Climategate was a fraud on a scale I have never seen…Effect on APS position: None. None at all. This is not science’

Other prominent scientists are speaking up skeptically about man-made global warming claims. See: 

Prominent Scientist Dissents: Renowned glaciologist declares global warming is ‘going to be a big plus’ – Fears ‘Frightening’ Cooling – Warns scientists are ‘prostituting their science’

Giaever has become a vocal dissenter from the alleged “consensus” regarding man-made climate fears. He was featured prominently in the 2009 U.S. Senate Report of (then) Over 700 Dissenting International Scientists from Man-made global warming. Giaever, who is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and won the 1973 Nobel Prize for Physics. (Watch news coverage here.)

Giaever was also one of more than 100 co-signers in a March 30, 2009 letter to President Obama that was critical of his stance on global warming. See: More than 100 scientists rebuke Obama as ‘simply incorrect’ on global warming: ‘We, the undersigned scientists, maintain that the case for alarm regarding climate change is grossly overstated’

Giaever is featured on page 89 of the 321 page of Climate Depot’s more than 1000 dissenting scientist report (updated from U.S. Senate Report). Dr. Giaever was quoted declaring himself a man-made global warming dissenter. “I am a skeptic…Global warming has become a new religion,” Giaever declared. “I am Norwegian, should I really worry about a little bit of warming? I am unfortunately becoming an old man. We have heard many similar warnings about the acid rain 30 years ago and the ozone hole 10 years ago or deforestation but the humanity is still around,” Giaever explained. “Global warming has become a new religion. We frequently hear about the number of scientists who support it. But the number is not important: only whether they are correct is important. We don’t really know what the actual effect on the global temperature is. There are better ways to spend the money,” he concluded.

Giaever also told the New York Times in 2010 that global warming “can’t be discussed — just like religion…there is NO unusual rise in the ocean level, so what where and what is the big problem?”

The recent survey of American Meteorologists: only 52% Say Man is A Primary cause of Global Warming

Climate Realists Deny Nothing

Climate Realists are not denying anything, but instead look objectively at the Reality. Raw global temperature measurements show NO warming trend since the Year 2000. In fact there is a cooling trend. It is only when adjustments are made to the raw measurements that warming appears. More importantly, the SAME data has been adjusted again and again, each time increasing the warming some more. For proof, see considerthisinfo.com.

Arctic ice did decline through 2012, but quickly returned to normal by 2015. Be sure to ask for 2013, 2014, and 2015 measurements that are usually left off. Antarctic ice has been thickening and increasing for 30 years. For proof, see paullitely.com.

It is not necessary to deny anything if you present unaltered measurements.

It should also be noted that the USA is in the longest period of time without a category 4 or 5 hurricane on record. Nothing since 2006.

It should also be noted that global average sea level measurements show increases of 1.1 Millimeter per decade. There are 24.5 Millimeters in an inch. It would take 100 years to rise 4 inches at this rate. Local measurements are affected by the thickness of warm ocean currents, the push of winds, and in some cases, the sinking of land.

Why is it that we only hear exaggerated predictions with shouts that anybody with a different opinion should be silenced? Simply because it is popular to believe the future will be different if we all change our behaviors the way we are told. Meanwhile, the United Nations “Authorities” are able to raise hundreds of Billions of dollars to try to change the weather.  Why would those getting paid so much ever admit they may be wrong?

If we are not really changing the weather now (humans have not warmed the planet except by altering the temperature measurements), why believe we can change the weather in the future? Because just saying it IS possible convinces people to take the actions recommended by those who present themselves as authorities.  When enough of us are convinced to take those actions because it supports our desire to protect nature, it becomes a movement. Movements are not easily redirected.  Movements have a life of their own and blindly mow down what is in their way. The most unfortunate part of this movement is that it increases the cost of living for those who can least afford it. It is killing them by cold and starvation. They cannot afford to Heat and Eat. Resources that could be used to make life better for the most people are diverted into the pockets of Politicians, Academics, and New industries whose only profits come from being subsidized. There is a Milli-trillion dollar waste of taxpayers dollars trying to do what we have not succeeded in doing yet… CHANGE THE WEATHER. Clearly the increased CO2 has not done it. How can reducing CO2 do it?

Finally, objective surveys of associations of climate experts result in only 55% agreeing that humans may be changing the climate. Look carefully at any surveys claiming more than that.
