Greenhouse fantasies anyone?

Over 99.9% of the earth’s atmosphere consists of nitrogen, oxygen, and argon.

Whereas CO2 makes up about 95% of the atmospheres of Venus and Mars, it currently accounts for only about 0.038% of the earth’s atmosphere (i.e. 380 parts per million), compared with a pre-industrial revolution figure of about 0.028%.

Water in its various forms ranges from 0 to 4% of the atmosphere and its properties vary according to what form it is in and the altitude at which it is found.

Humans are responsible for about 3.4% of the CO2 emitted to the atmosphere annually, mostly from the burning of coal, oil, and natural gas, and the production of cement; the rest comes from natural sources such as volcanoes, the outgassing of the oceans, and the biosphere.

Humans are probably responsible for about 2.5% of the total greenhouse effect

(Milloy, 2006a).

Yes it is correct that we should pay more attention to our behaviour and stewardship of planet earth

No it is not right or honest that we be bombarded with unscientific and hysterical pseudoscience posing as fact
