- carbon dioxide absorbent
Washington Energy Secretary Rick Perry said on Monday that he did not see carbon dioxide as the main cause of global warming, a statement that was inconsistent with the mainstream scientific consensus, but was in line with the director of the Environmental Protection Agency.
When asked if carbon emissions are primarily responsible for climate change, Pele said no, adding, "the most likely major control knobs are the seawater and the environment we live in.
"Perry's view is contrary to mainstream climate science, including analysis by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The EPA, led by President Donald Trump, recently deleted a web page that declared "carbon dioxide is the main greenhouse gas that has led to recent climate change.
After EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt appeared on the "Squawk Box", the page was deleted, he said, "There is a big disagreement about the impact of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases on the Earth ".
"So, no, I don't agree (carbon dioxide)
"This is the main reason why we are seeing global warming," Pruitt said . ". Nobel Prize-
The un-organized inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change has won, calling carbon dioxide the biggest heat-trapping force, causing 33 times more warming than natural causes.
Kerry Emanuel, an atmospheric scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said the team's calculations showed that carbon dioxide alone caused 1 to 3 degrees of warming.
Perry, like Pruitt, rejected the scientific consensus on climate change.
He said: "This idea that science has been completely solved, if you don't believe that it has been solved, then you are the other niandete, and from my point of view, this is
Pere added that skepticism about climate change is "completely correct," saying that doubt is a sign of "wise, sensible people involved.
"Perry said on Monday's TV show that there should be no debate about whether climate change or whether humans have an impact on climate.
Instead, he said the debate should be about "what policy changes we need to make to influence the climate science director at the Center for Biodiversity, Shaye Wolfe," Perry "'s science is completely behind.
"The world's oceans are not the main cause of climate change and are actually another victim of greenhouse pollution," Wolf said . ".
"Our oceans absorb millions of tons of carbon dioxide every day, making them dangerous acidic.
"The warming of the ocean also puts great pressure on marine life," Wolf said . ".
NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported in January that 2016 of the Earth's temperature was the warmest ever.
Since the end of the 19 th century, the average surface temperature of the Earth has risen by about 2 degrees Fahrenheit, "This change is mainly driven by an increase in carbon dioxide and other human activities --
"It is discharged into the atmosphere," the agencies said in a joint statement . ".
