Climate alarmism and politics are based on the invalid United Nations (UN) assumption that human CO2 is the dominant cause of the CO2 increase above 280 ppm, or since 1750. This assumption conflicts with UN’s own data, is derived from invalid circular reasoning, and violates physics.UN data show human carbon emissions have added only 33 ppm to atmospheric CO2 as of 2020 while natural CO2 emissions added 100 ppm. This predicted human-caused increase of 33 ppm is 8% of the total carbon in the atmosphere as of 2020, not 33% as the invalid assumption claims..
Also, δ14C data prove nature is the overwhelming cause of the CO2 increase since 1750, and lower the 8% of human carbon in the atmosphere calculated from the UN data to less than 4 percent. The relative equilibrium percentage levels of available natural carbon in land, air, surface ocean, and deep ocean is the strongest predictor of the effect of human carbon on atmospheric CO2 because the independent human carbon cycle seeks the same percentage levels as the equilibrium natural carbon cycle. For example, if the carbon levels of land, surface ocean, and deep ocean were each doubled, the effect of human carbon emissions on atmospheric CO2 would be reduced by about half, to 18 ppm.
The bomb-caused increase in 14C and δ14C has now depleted as δ14C has returned to its balance level of zero. Yet the 14C level is now higher than in 1950. To explain this 14C increase, we propose a theory that nature keeps the δ14C balance level equal to zero. This theory predicts the non-bomb 14C increase since 1950 is caused by the 12C increase while the δ14C balance level stayed at zero. This is the simplest (Occam’s Razor) explanation for the non-bomb 14C increase since 1950.
