Carbon dioxide in the air theory shot down

An increase of 110 ppm is only 1/100 of one per cent of carbon dioxide in air, yet we still pay a carbon tax.

To the editor:

The record high of 391 ppm of carbon dioxide in the air for 2011, according to the World Meteorological Organization report cited on the letters page of your Nov. 23 issue, is nothing new.

The increase of 110 ppm from 1,750 to 2010 has been known in the data for several years. An increase of 110 ppm is only 1/100 of one per cent of carbon dioxide in air, yet we still pay a carbon tax on gasoline we use for our cars and the natural gas to heat our homes.

Any astronomer could explain how variations in the solar storms on the sun affect the power, heat and energy from the sun and causes climate changes in this world, not an increase of 1/100 of one per cent of carbon dioxide in the air.
