Bringing Peace to the Climate Wars

Geophysicist Dr. Peter Ward delivered a televised speech to the Arizona Geological Society this year. It is Dr. Ward’s conclusion that volcanoes rule climate change.

Sequences of large explosive volcanoes are observed to cool Earth over millennia, he states, while extrusion of basaltic lavas over areas of tens to millions of square miles are observed to cause rapid global warming. Greenhouse gases are well-known to absorb some frequencies of infrared radiation, but they do not absorb enough heat to explain observed global warming.

Heat is a very broad continuum of frequencies of oscillation of all the bonds that hold matter together. The amplitude of oscillation at each frequency of oscillation flows from a hotter body to a cooler body by radiation or conduction via resonance.
