AMAZON RAINFOREST DEFORESTATION

Posted on: July 23, 2021

THIS POST IS A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF THE CLIMATE CHANGE INTERPRETATION OF DEFORESTATION OF THE AMAZON RAIN FOREST.

  1. THERE ARE 390 BILLION TREES IN THE AMAZON.
  2. THERE ARE 3040 BILLION TREES IN THE WORLD
  3. THEREFORE THE AMAZON CARRIES OUT 390/3040=12.8% OF THE WORLD’S LAND PHOTOSYNTHESIS
  4. MOST OF THE WORLD’S PHOTOSYNTHESIS IS IN THE OCEAN WITH ABOUT 35% ON LAND.
  5. THEREFORE THE AMAZON CARRIES OUT 4.5% OF THE WORLD’S PHOTOSYNTHESIS
  6. DEFORESTATION OF THE AMAZON IS PROGRESSING AT 1.4% PER YEAR.
  7. THEREFORE DEFORESTATION IS REDUCING THE AMAZON’S PHOTOSYNTHESIS CO2 REMOVAL BY 1.4% PER YEAR.
  8. THAT REDUCES THE WORLD’S PHOTOSYNTHESIS CO2 REMOVAL BY 0.063% PER YEAR. THIS LOSS IS NEGLIGIBLE.
  9. BUT THE BIGGER ISSUE HERE IS THAT ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING (AGW) IS NOT A THEORY ABOUT THE IMPACT OF CHANGES IN THE CARBON CYCLE ON ATMOSPHERIC COMPOSITION.
  10. AGW IS A THEORY ABOUT THE IMPACT OF FOSSIL FUEL EMISSIONS ON ATMOSPHERIC COMPOSITION.
  11. WE CONCLUDE THAT THOUGH THERE MAY BE REASONS FOR TREE HUGGER ENVRONMENTALISTS TO WORRY ABOUT DEFORESTATION OF THE AMAZON, IT IS NOT A CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE.

Why do you accept the premise that CO2 is a problem?

More CO2 released from hydrocarbon usage means more food at no additional cost for fertilizer or water.

More food means lower food prices.

Lower food prices means less world hunger.

More CO2 means more calcium CARBONATE, the basis of our food chain.

I shouldn’t. Thanks.

  • David: thank you very much for that information.......something I was unaware of....very interesting.....
  • Ruben Leon: 1st you write your opinion and then you search for other opinions to support your opinion and call your opinion science. I'm as sure that the orbit
  • Ruben Leon: People who believe CO2 is causing climate change are either ignorant of basic science or they don't believe in gravity. CO2 is 10% heavier than Cal
