A nursery story
When one expresses the global warming theory as a nursery story, it becomes obvious how absurd the story is. Here's how it goes:
We all live at the bottom of a great ocean of gases that we call the atmosphere. The atmosphere is mostly nitrogen, followed by oxygen. The atmosphere helps to keep the world warm
But there are also some other gases there in very small amounts. One of them is called carbon dioxide -- or CO2 for short. There is only a tiny, tiny amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.
CO2 is the stuff we all breathe out every time we breathe. Plants love CO2. It is food to them. So they gobble it up.
But the plants don't get it all. Some CO2 escapes them and stays in the atmosphere. So the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is gradually increasing.
But even after the extra CO2 has been added to the CO2 already in the atmosphere, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is still a tiny, tiny amount.
Some scientists believe that the extra CO2 in the atmosphere will make the world warmer. Other scientists believe that the tiny, tiny amount of CO2 in the atmosphere will make the extra warmth tiny, tiny too -- so tiny that we will not be able notice it.
The scientists who believe that we can notice it are very nasty to the scientists who believe that we cannot notice it.
