NOAA’s Annual Greenhouse Gas Index!
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration today released its Annual Greenhouse Gas Index (AGGI) for 2010.
The AGGI for 2010 was 1.29, meaning that, according to NOAA, the combined heating effect of additional greenhouse gases was 29 percent higher during 2010 than in 1990.
But the combined heating effect of those additional greenhouse gases was somewhere between non-existent to imperceptibly small. So 1.29 times that is, well, another small number.
The AGGI is a pseudoscientific metric that can’t possibly measure what it purports to measure since no one (including NOAA) understands the effect of rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, much less that they are harmful.
