Carbon Dioxide Emissions Do Not ‘Directly Cause an Increase in Global Temperature’: Study

A study published in Applications in Engineering Science found that carbon dioxide emissions do not directly contribute to the global temperature.

Because the earth is already “saturated” with carbon dioxide, increased levels of CO2 cannot cause an increase in temperature.

The “saturation” principle suggests that greater greenhouse gas concentrations do not lead to radiation absorption.

“Further increasing the concentration of the gas does not contribute anything because the radiation under consideration is practically not being examined,” the study reads. “This condition is referred to as the saturation of the absorbing substance.”

As a result of the saturation process, “emitted CO2 does not directly cause an increase in global temperature.”

“[D]espite the fact that the majority of publications attempt to depict a catastrophic future for our planet due to the anthropogenic increase in CO2 and its impact on Earth’s climate, the shown facts raise serious doubts about this influence,” the study notes, adding that the idea of human influence on CO2 emissions increasing the global temperature is “merely a hypothesis rather than a substantiated fact.”

Although carbon dioxide emissions are evidently not a threat to humanity, the Biden administration announced a plan last August to spend $1.2 billion in taxpayer money to vacuum the sky.

Two carbon-capture projects are expected to remove “more than 2 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions each year from the atmosphere—an amount equivalent to the annual emissions from roughly 445,000 gasoline-powered cars—and create 4,800 good-paying jobs in Texas and Louisiana,” according to a press release from the Department of Energy (DOE).

“Cutting back on our carbon emissions alone won’t reverse the growing impacts of climate change; we also need to remove the CO2 that we’ve already put in the atmosphere—which nearly every climate model makes clear is essential to achieving a net-zero global economy by 2050,” U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm said at the time. “With this once-in-a-generation investment made possible by President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, DOE is laying the foundation for a direct air capture industry crucial to tackling climate change—transforming local economies and delivering healthier communities along the way.”
