The pseudo-science of man-made global warming has received another blow — and we’re not just talking about the brutal cold gripping not only Britain but all of Europe, North America and China. A newly released study from the University of Bristol by Wolfgang Knorr proves that the airborne fraction of man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) has not increased during the past 160 years.
Mr Knorr, based at the Department of Earth Sciences at his university, analysed atmospheric CO2 and emissions data gathered since 1850 and has shown that “the trend in the airborne fraction since 1850 has been 0.7 ± 1.4 percent per decade, i.e. close to and not significantly different from zero.”
In other words, the data shows that there has been no increase in atmospheric CO2 volume for the past 160 years — flying in the face of the climate change fanatics who claim the direct opposite.
According to the study, only 40 to 45 percent of emitted CO2 stays in the atmosphere.
Climate models currently assume that the airborne fraction of CO2 is increasing and will continue to do so, which is a key part of their long-term predictions.
The research, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, is the latest revelation that will further weaken public confidence in the political elite which uses the alarmism of the climatology cult as an excuse to impose massive tax hikes and interference with individual freedom on the citizens of the Western world.
What has already started with dangerous mercury light bulbs and a 15 percent increase on all our electricity bills to pay for the blighting of our landscape with inefficient wind factories, is set to become a crippling tax burden on consumers and to complete the deindustrialisation of the UK.
This is not an accident, it is intentional — and David Cameron’s Tories are as guilty of collaboration with this appalling scheme as the Labour government.

The abstract reads as follows:
“Several recent studies have highlighted the possibility that the oceans and terrestrial ecosystems have started losing part of their ability to sequester a large proportion of the anthropogenic CO2 emissions. This is an important claim, because so far only about 40% of those emissions have stayed in the atmosphere, which has prevented additional climate change. This study re-examines the available atmospheric CO2 and emissions data including their uncertainties. It is shown that with those uncertainties, the trend in the airborne fraction since 1850 has been 0.7 ± 1.4% per decade, i.e. close to and not significantly different from zero. The analysis further shows that the statistical model of a constant airborne fraction agrees best with the available data if emissions from land use change are scaled down to 82% or less of their original estimates. Despite the predictions of coupled climate-carbon cycle models, no trend in the airborne fraction can be found.
