Forget Global Warming - Nitrogen Is the New Fear

As the CO2 sector of the warming religion dies out a new fear has to be found. And the bright boys of science by fear are on the case. Measurements show that CO2 is only .038% of the atmosphere. Nitrogen is a whopping 78%. Now it is time to be really afraid.

An international group of scientists say there is an immediate need for a global assessment of the nitrogen cycle and its impact on climate.

On a planetary scale, human activities, especially fertiliser application, have more than doubled the amount of reactive nitrogen in circulation on land. This massive alteration of the nitrogen cycle affects climate, food security, energy security, human health and ecosystem health. The long-term consequences of these changes are yet to be fully realised, but the human impact on the nitrogen cycle has so far been largely missed in international environmental assessments.

Nitrogen's role in climate change will be highlighted at an event on 7 December at the COP-15 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. Event organisers will be calling for a new assessment of nitrogen and climate, which will identify innovative nitrogen management strategies for global climate change mitigation and associated co-benefits to society.

Dr Cheryl Palm, the chair of the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI), which is organising the event, said "Nitrogen and climate interactions are not yet adequately included in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessment process.
If they can get a hold of nitrogen they can control the world's food supply. Not quite as good as capturing the world's energy supply. But not bad if Power and Control is the true object of the game.

Red Hot Lies: How Global Warming Alarmists Use Threats, Fraud, and Deception to Keep You Misinformed.Actually misinformation is only part of it. Getting you agitated is the goal - where they want action. Of course if no action is desired you will be told all the soothing words. Or better - no words at all.

I predict the next Crisis will be, not Nitrogen, but Water.

Come on -- they are talking about reactive nitrogen, not molecular nitrogen.

I have been saying for years that the industrial creation of available nitrogen starting with the Haber process in the early 1900's is a much more dramatic man-made change in soil and water chemistry than our changes in CO2 levels.

This will make government control of CO2 production look tame -- since nitrogen fixation is the key for fertilization and efficient agriculture.
