The paper concludes,
"While the presence of 0.04% CO2 in our atmosphere is essential for life in the biosphere, the notion that such a minor constituent of the atmosphere can control the above forces and [atmospheric] motions is absurd. There is, in fact, not one iota of reliable evidence that it does."Dr. Martin Hertzberg has a PhD in Physical Chemistry from Stanford, earned his BA degree, cum laude, from the Heights Campus of New York University, and was trained as a meteorologist at the U.
