The Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine has promoted a paper on global warming entitled "Environmental effects of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide", which has had a number of incarnations since 1999.

Basic Errors

  • In Figure 1, the dating of the Sargasso Sea record is 50 years out, because they misunderstand the use of 'BP' (Before Present) dates in paleo-records, which refers to before 1950 AD, not the present day.
  • Humans exhaling CO2 do not contribute to accumulating GHGs.

Cherry Picks

  • Why is the Sargasso Sea record the only one used in the paper, rather than any of the compilations?
