The Threat of Bilateral Climate Change
The aim of this study is to accelerate the development of climatology with nemonik thinking (Schade, Think Smarter with Nemonik Thinking, 2016). During the industrial period, the atmospheric CO2 concentration has increased about 120 ppm, while the average global atmospheric temperature increased about 1.4 °C. However, the Vostok thermal function of CO2 during the last 400,000 years predicts that the increase of 120 ppm of CO2 would increase the temperature with 11.6 °C. Hence, there is a thermal gap of 10.2 °C between the observed and predicted temperature. This gap could be explained by the proposed bilateral hypothesis of climate change. This hypothesis holds that the observed increase in average global atmospheric temperature of 1.4 °C is the balance of an artificial global warming of 11.6 °C and a natural global cooling of 10.2 °C. Those large opposing thermal phenomena could explain the recent climatological instability. Furthermore, the bilateral hypothesis predicts that an uncontrolled decrease of atmospheric CO2 could trigger glacial conditions threatening humanity. Therefore, further research of this topic is crucial. This book contains extracts of (Schade, Global Warming is the Solution, 2016).
