This paper disproves the IPCC and Global Computer Models global warming analyses and offers alternate theories.
It identifies:
1. that the IPCC fails to follow basic principles of science when it misrepresents the Greenhouse Effect
(GHE) and claims that simply adding Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) to the air results in warming, when the
original Arrhenius paper says that you must add an energy photon to a GHG to get GHE warming.
2. that the quantities of energy entering the Earth, not the amount of GHGs, dictates how much of GHE
warming can occur
3. that the physical conditions on Earth maintain an EXCESS of the GHGs in the air over that needed to
satisfy the limited energy available for the GHE, thus invalidating the IPCC claim that just adding more
GHGs means warming. This voids the idea of AGW& the justification for the Kyoto Treaty and Cap &
Trade CO2 emissions control (see “Excess CO2 Scenario” paper at
4. that the various forces of gravity from the sun moon and planets, and the gravitational potential energy
provide additional energy into the Earth that was not considered in the IPCC analyses. This energy is
much greater than the solar insolation used as the sole source by IPCC. The identification of these added
energy sources also solves a major problem with the Milankovitch Theory that solar insolation did not
provide sufficient energy to be able to cause ice age magnitude cooling. Identifying that these energy
sources were not used by the IPCC invalidates the IPCC analyses.
5. that the timing (60 year, 900 year etc natural cycles) and spatial distribution of the energy from gravity
and gravitational potential energy is imposed on the Earth by orbital variations and eccentricity. This
explains the time variations of the Earths temperature, and why the Earth’s temperature moves north to
south and back, in the NAO, PDO, El Nino/La Nina cycles. This will allow better predictability of future
climate changes droughts and hurricanes/cyclones etc.

This paper is structured in the following parts

1.Greenhouse Effect Mis-Application of the Science by IPCC
2.Other Energy Sources: Gravity and Gravitational Potential Energy - 100 year impacts
3.Longer Term Impacts -1000s of years
4.Shorter Term Impacts -1 to 10 years

John Dodds: Gravity causes Climate Change

1. GHE Mis-Application by IPCC & Computer Models

The IPCC says (AR4, CH1, WG1., p116) "The Sun powers Earth’s climate, radiating energy at very short
wavelengths, predominately in the visible or near-visible (e.g., ultraviolet) part of the spectrum. ... Adding more of a
greenhouse gas, such as CO2, to the atmosphere intensifies the greenhouse effect (GHE), thus warming Earth’s
climate." These two statements are patently false, and extremely misleading.
First the much larger forces of gravity from the sun, moon, and planets acting on the Earth, result in a continuous
energy input (& output in order to maintain equilibrium temperatures) to the earth. The energy manifests itself as
Earth rotation, movements of the oceans and liquid core in tides and currents etc, and friction and the Earth Kinetic
Energy as measured by temperature. In addition orbital movement of the Earth relative to the sun moon and planets
results in a Gravitational Potential Energy that also adds to or removes Earth’s kinetic energy resulting in
temperature variations. The energy from gravity is much larger than the 1366W/m^2 energy from solar insolation
used by IPCC as the sole source of incoming energy in the evaluation of global warming. The energy from gravity,
the energy available from Potential Energy and the energy from solar insolation will all result in Earth energy
maximums at the same time, when Earth is closest to the gravity sources, primarily the Sun, Jupiter and Venus.
Second, Arrhenius in 1896 said that adding an energy photon to a Greenhouse Gas (GHG), results in the Greenhouse
warming effect (GHE). It requires all THREE components to get warming. Failure to add the energy photon results
in a violation of the Law of Conservation of Energy. An object can not warm itself up in violation of the 2nd Law of
Thermodynamics without adding the extra energy. Simply adding a GHG will not create warming, unless it absorbs
a photon. These errors negate all conclusions by the IPCC models.

The IPCC interpretation misapplies the Arrhenius scientific theory to the Earth. Rather than adding a GHG causing
warming per the IPCC, it is the increased addition of energy photons to the already existent EXCESS of GHGs in
the atmosphere, that will cause an increase in the GHE warming. The absorption spectrum at those energies is
saturated for WV, CO2 and Methane with competes with WV. There is thus excess GHGs in the air at those
energies. Since there is already excess, (above what is needed for the GHE,) then the GHE is LIMITED and dictated
by the available energy, not by the amount of GHGs. And that energy is already used up by the existing about 30C
of the greenhouse effect at the world average temperature of 287K.
A simple proof is that the GHG Water Vapor, exists and results in 85-98% of the ~30C Greenhouse effect. IF more
energy were available then it would have already used the excess GHG water vapor in the air and oceans to create a
larger GHE contribution, until there was no excess GHG available (i.e. the oceans would have boiled away!).
Similarly when the GHG water vapor humidity triples locally from a nominal 33% to 100% when it rains, the
temperature from the GHE does not triple to a 90C WV contribution, because there is no extra absorbable energy
available. We just get excess water vapor in the air. A similar argument applies to CO2 which is available to plants
at 16C rather than at the 900C of a CO2 that has absorbed a photon. The IPCC “rule” that more GHG means more
warming does NOT work. The available energy dictates the GHE, not the amount of GHG or CO2, in spite of the
popular mis-interpretation of the Greenhouse Effect. The IPCC interpretation is a gross fraudulent misrepresentation
of the scientific reality.
Thus the IPCC conclusion that limiting the amount of CO2 or GHG emissions in order to control the temperature
also does not work. Reducing CO2 emissions will only reduce the amount of EXCESS CO2 in the air, thus making
it harder for plants to grow. Since reducing emissions will not reduce the temperature then the justification for using
much more expensive “clean” power in place of cheaper CO2 emitting power sources also is not scientifically
justifiable. The demonization of Carbon is a gross miscarriage of reality.

Further evidence disproving the idea that more GHGs causes more warming is the fact that on a daily basis the solar
insolation energy coming in varies from zero (at night- when the outgoing energy is provided by the Earth radiating
energy from its surface) to 1366W/m^2. The Earth temperature thus passes through equilibrium twice daily
(contrary to James Hansen’s claim that the Earth is at a dis-equilibrium until the CO2 is removed). In the morning
the energy-in increases, the ground warms, the use of more GHGs increases, the GHE increases and the
temperature warms. At night or when the temperature decreases from the maximum, less energy is transported in
and out, the GHE decreases, and the amount of GHGs used for energy transport to space decreases and the amount
of excess GHGs increases. BUT in spite of the increase of available GHGs the temperature DECREASES. The
IPCC statement that more GHGs means more warming is a LIE. In fact, by a ratio of the modified (for gray bodies)
Stefan-Boltzmann Law (SBL) of energy transported at a given temperature, at the average temperature of 287K,
less than half of the GHGs available in 1922 when the hottest recorded temperature 58C was measured (when CO2

was at ~280ppm) are actually in use for the GHE. There is basically always EXCESS GHGs, both WV and CO2 in
the air.
Furthermore, since all of the available outgoing energy of a frequency that can be absorbed by the GHGs will be
absorbed, then the IPCC et al concepts of “feedback” effects resulting in even more warming are physically
impossible. There is literally no extra energy available to be absorbed by the added excess “feedback” GHGs. This
also eliminates the concept of a runaway greenhouse effect. The energy photons powering the warming do not exist.
The only way to get more photons is to increase the solar insolation, increase the gravity effects, decrease the stored
potential energy (all by getting closer to planetary masses) or by adding thousands times more man made chemical
or nuclear energy.

The futility of CO2 emissions control is further demonstrated by an evaluation of the contributors to the Earths
temperature. The Earths 287C average temperature consists of
about 30 C from the GHE nanosecond energy delay, (delaying a photon, not trapping it, warms the air) and
about 257C from other ground sources (either radioactive decay or gravity etc. )
Of the variable 30C GHE, 85% (25.5C) to 98% (29.4C) comes from water vapor
Leaving 0.6 to 4.5C from ALL the CO2. (& all others)
Since half or more of the CO2 is in excess ,then this must be removed before it will impact the GHE.
Whereas if we just add more it will not add more temperature.
So now lets say we remove all the CO2 from the air to lower the temp by 0.6 to 4.5C (an impossibility
since more will just come out of that dissolved in the ocean). What happens to plant growth and food production that
depends on the availability of CO2? Have we just killed off mankind?
The figure 1-1 below shows the GHE temperature effect as a function of GHG concentration graphically.. It should
be noted that if the energy coming in is limited then no matter how much of the absorbing GHG there is in the air,

there can be no increase in the number of absorptions at any given time. There is no additional energy photon to be

Supplement 1 R2 to Ch2 of John Dodds Wobble Theory of Global Warming 3

John Dodds: Gravity causes Climate Change

The explanation for why this error was made is simple. As Arrhenius did his thought experiments in 1896, he
increased the number of GHGs available from zero to get the “rule “ that “ more GHGs caused more warming”. This
rule applies in the lab when the Earth is increasing its temperature up until it reaches equilibrium. However when the
Earth reaches the equilibrium point when the amount of Energy photons coming in equals the amount going out (a
fraction of which, (about 10.5% or 30C/287C), are transported by the GHGs in the Greenhouse Effect,) then, the
situation changes. Since all the photons are already being transported out, then the addition of more GHGs has no
impact on the number of photons available. More GHGs no longer causes more warming. There is then EXCESS
GHGs in the air, and hence WV GHGs in the ocean. Adding more has no impact on the already maximized GHE. At
this point only adding more energy photons will cause more warming (& also more GHE.)
This is shown in Fig 1-1 above.

2. OTHER ENERGY SOURCES: Gravity, Potential Energy, 100 year impacts

Given that the theory above indicates that more CO2 does not cause more warming, BUT it is clear that while the
incoming solar insolation has been essentially constant since the 1960s and there has obviously been global warming
from the 1970s through 1998, as well as cooling from 1880 to 1910, warming to 1940, cooling to 1970,
Then there MUST be another varying source of incoming energy.
It was identified that variable Gravity “wobbles” caused by planetary eccentricity is one source of energy, both as
direct energy transfer to Earth from the sun moon and planets (e.g. Earth rotation and friction, tides etc), and as the
source of Earths Gravitational Potential Energy relative to the sun and moon and planets. This is similar to how
NASA scientists have identified that Jupiter’s gravity causes climate changes and the extreme volcanism (heat
source) on Jupiter’s moon Io. This is summarized below. The full details of the justification of John Dodds Wobble
Theory are available at in the full paper
These sources were not addressed in the IPCC analyses. Which therefore invalidates the IPCC analyses (again!)

The following Fig 2-1 chart of measured Hadley Temperature AND direct Forces of Gravity attempts to identify
and rank one of the causes and effects on Earth’s Temperature.
First the forces of Gravity were identified with the Sun and Moon being by far the most significant. However their
variation is essentially unchanged on a year over year basis. I.e. the annual seasonal variations. Next most significant
are Jupiter (blue), Saturn (pink) and Venus (brown) in the chart below. Obviously there are significant variations,
that far exceed the contribution from solar insolation

Supplement 1 R2 to Ch2 of John Dodds Wobble Theory of Global Warming 5

John Dodds: Gravity causes Climate Change

. The next most dominant force is from Jupiter (blue). The approximate 12 year periodicity of when Jupiter and
Earths orbits reach their closest point or perigee identifies when the force of gravity (inverse r-squared law) would
reach energy peaks. The temperature peaks that correspond to Jupiter’s peaks in forces are readily apparent as the
blue peaks in Earth’s 3 year average Hadley temperature chart measurements. The temperature peaks rise for the
nominal 6 yr half orbit as Earth and Jupiter are getting closer.
Next we observe that there is a near 30 year orbital cycle for Saturn (pink) as it moves along its orbit. When we
observe that BOTH Jupiter and Saturn are coincidently closest to their peaks (every 60 years, 1880, 1940, 2000) we
also get a peak in the Earth temperature. The 60 year periodicity is reminiscent of the natural well known 60 year
Jupiter Saturn resonance orbit. (10 Jupiter orbits resonate with 2 Saturn orbits for a repeating pattern that dictates 60
year cycles in planetary eccentricity.). It is postulated that there are 60 year temperature cycles driven by
gravity of primarily Jupiter and the planets and their associated eccentricity. From a temperature peak or
closest approach/shortest distance, for the next 30 years the distance is increasing, & the force of gravity is
decreasing and the Earth to planets (most Jupiter) Potential Energy is increasing, taking the energy from the Earth’s
Kinetic Energy all resulting in 30 years of cooling.
Next we observe that Venus has a series of short (less than a month ) peaks that are comparable to Jupiter in
magnitude, but drop to values lower than Saturn soon after the peak.
Note that for the 30 years after a temperature peak (closest point) the distance from Earth to the Jupiter/Saturn
equivalent mass, is INCREASING, thus resulting in a decrease if the force of gravity, an increase in the Earths PE
AND the observed decrease in temperature. At the furthest point (near the apogees for both Jupiter and Saturn, there
will be a reversal, the force of gravity will begin to increase, the PE will begin to decrease (resulting on more
Kinetic energy to Earth) and the temperature will warm for 30 years to the next peak.

3. LONGER TERM (1000 Year) Impacts

Figure 3-1 below shows the longer term (6000 years, limit of the orbital ephemeris program) chart of the influences
of Jupiter’s (the most dominant variable gravity force- the sun is essentially constant) eccentric orbit. While this
chart is Jupiter’s orbit relative to the Sun, a chart relative to the Earth is similar but a little more complex due to
Earth orbit complications.
Variation is orbital distance over time result in variable forces of gravity acting on the earth (& oceans & tides and
friction heat etc), and in variable levels of gravitational potential energy.
This chart clearly shows both the current nominal 60 year resonances identified above and the approximate 900 year
warming and cooling sequences that result in among others
the Roman warming 136BC-339AD
the Dark Ages cooling, 336AD-908
the Viking warming, 908-1311
the Little Ice Age cooling 1311-1762, and
the current warming 1762-2224 as cycles that are caused by primarily Jupiter’s eccentricity and its
subsequent cause of Earth’s eccentricity. It even shows the beginning of the slowing down of Jupiter’s orbital
expansion as it begins to reverse to become less eccentric (& hence overall warmer, ) in the next millennium.
Note how the rise of civilizations corresponds to warming temperatures and less eccentric Jupiter orbits.

This chart shows the perihelion (nearest to sun) points of Jupiter’s orbit. The aphelion points (furthest from sun) are
mirror images at about 6AU, showing eccentricity in that whenever this curve shows Jupiter’s orbit becoming less

John Dodds: Gravity causes Climate Change

eccentric (moving closer to a circle (e.g. 1762-2224 -the current warming) then the outer curve also is moving
inward showing less eccentricity.
In addition to these ~900 year cycles, the approximate 60 year cycles when Jupiter reaches the closest point to the
sun & earth are also evident as the lines themselves. (e.g. the lines terminate in 1880, 1940 and 1998 which are the
closest points on Fig 2.
While the temperature turning points do not correspond exactly, they are approximate and also vary with time and
there are complications from both Saturn and Venus eccentricity turning points that explain some discrepancies from
the Richard Alley GISP2 temperatures, typical northern hemisphere temperatures given below as Fig 3-2.

The key points are that

1) The force of Gravity from Jupiter and the planets does provide an additional source of energy and heat into the
Earth, that was not considered in the IPCC Global Warming analyses, and
2) These variations provide a timing that (approximately) corresponds to and hence explains the natural temperature
variations of the Earth.
Even longer term eccentricity cycles (which cause Earth eccentricity) will also cause longer term earth temperature
variations such as ice ages etc & probably even multi-million year Earth eccentricity and temperature variations.
This is further explained in the Wobble Theory paper referenced above.

The actual measured temperature is caused by the SUM of all the varying sources of incoming energy. Due to the
different frequencies of the variations some forces and energies dominate at different times.
E.g. The solar insolation has a daily cycle due to Earth rotation
The moon orbit around the earth has a near monthly cycle, which averages out on a yearly averaged chart
The Earth single orbit eccentricity and tilt has an annual cycle. (seasons) from solar insolation AND the suns
The gravity and PE from Venus cause 3.25 year and 60 year cycles on Earth temperatures
The gravity from Jupiter has a force and Potential Energy on an 11.86 (almost ) 12 year cycle.
Saturn has a near 30 year impact.
The Resonance Effect of Jupiter and Saturn results in a 60 year cycle of temperatures AND causes the Eccentricity
of ALL the other planets.
The next level of sub-eccentricity cycles from Primarily Jupiter causes the near 900 year warming and cooling.
An even longer cycle causes nominal 50,000 year eccentricity cycles (e.g. the 25KY half cycle of ice age warming
Even longer Jupiter sub-eccentricity cycles cause ice age warming and cooling
Even longer Jupiter eccentricity cycles result in the Earth Eccentricity nominal 2.4 MY year cycle and the
appropriate changes in the climate.

At this point we look at a chart with the SUM of the three major components of the forces of gravity Dark blue is
Jupiter, light blue is Jupiter plus Saturn, & Brown is the sum of all three.
The following Fig 4-1 shows a shorter term (1980-2015) chart of the major sources of energy (from Jupiter Saturn
and Venus) into the Earth. The larger Energy from the Moon’s orbit is not included but if multi-month timeframes
were of interest then they would have to be addressed. Just as if daily temperatures of interest then one must
consider the daily variations due to Earth rotation and variations in solar insolation.
Note the frequency of brown peaks corresponding to the short periods every 3 ¼ years when Venus approaches the
Earth orbit to maximize the amount of energy on Earth. It is the coincidence of the Venus approach and both Saturn
and Jupiter approaching their maximum energy points that results in the 1998, (and 1878) type abnormal peaks in
warming. The next big Venus peak is due in Oct 2010, and since it is peaking with Venus below the Sun Earth
ecliptic plane, and Jupiter is also peaking with maximum energy below this plane, then Oct 2010 should be expected
to have its maximum warming impact in the Southern hemisphere.- a warmer than usually spring. The next Venus
peak is in January 2014

The 3.25 year peaks due to Venus (brown) can be seen where they dominate for short periods (under a month) for
4 cycles and then are less significant for the next 11 years. This is what will cause the Oct 2010, and the Jan 2014
temperature peaks. Venus’s orbital variations are ALSO induced by Jupiter’s 12 year orbit.
Then you can observe that the light blue (mostly) Jupiter plus Saturn peaks, occur every about 12 years. Note that
the2000 peak is slightly higher than either the1986 or the 2010 peak. I.e. Our temperature topped out in the 1998-
2005 period.
On an even shorter time period everyone knows that the Earth rotation dictates daily fluctuations in the solar
insolation, and seasonal changes are dictated by Earths annual eccentricity.

John Dodds: Gravity causes Climate Change


The following Figure 5-1, “Orbits, Eccentricity and Latitude Angles, attempts to visualize how the various planetary
locations can impact the forces and Energy on Earth.

1. First it should be noted that when Jupiter is at its closest point to the Sun (blue P) and also when Saturn is at
its closest point (pink P, in top right corner) then both planets are ALSO at their most negative latitudes
or largest angle below the Sun-Earth Ecliptic plane. I.e. Their force of gravity on Earth is maximized at
some point in between (as pictured) , and their Gravitational Potential Energy (respectively to Jupiter and
Saturn) on Earth is minimized, resulting in the warmest temperature on Earth. The forces (& temperature)
will maximize on Earth in the Southern Hemisphere since it is closest to the planets causing the gravity.
(for the purist- the cycle length of the latitude and the shortest distance vary on different frequencies – so
do not apply this “rule” exactly over multi- thousand year periods!)
2. When 11.86 or about 12 years later, Jupiter completes one orbit, then the energy again approaches the
maximum, but both Saturn and Earth will be at slightly different locations due to their orbital periods. This
creates the Jupiter induced near 12 year energy cycles
3. In about 60 years, the Jupiter/Saturn resonance period, their orbits will again coincide for a maximum,
similar to what is pictured. This is what causes the near 60 year Earth temperature cycle.
4. In addition to their regular orbits, both Jupiter and Saturn have near 900 year (& longer) eccentricity sub-
cycles, which causes the pictured orbits to expand or contract (more or less eccentric). This is what is
shown for Jupiter in Fig 4. There are also longer term eccentricity sub-cycles which presumably relate to
ice age cycles etc. It is also assumed that the Earth tilt cycle is related to the rotation of the Jupiter/Saturn
latitude cycles through their own eccentricity cycles which do not necessarily correspond to the eccentricity
cycles of the distance
5. Venus, since it orbits in about 0.7 years, will result in much more frequent Gravity peaks which also vary
depending upon the Earth and Venus Eccentricity.

The short term (<20 Yr) frequency of the various cycles for the Latitude Angles (or Peak Temperature Timing
Indicator, of the planets Jupiter, Saturn and Venus, are shown in figure 5-2 below. Note that when you get all three
planets at their peak negative latitudes (which also corresponds to their recent closest points to earth in 1998, and
hence peak gravity and minimum Potential Energy) then you get the approximate 1998-2000 peak temperature.
The 1880 and 1940 peaks also can be observed on longer term charts and below in the next figure . Note also that
when Jupiter bottoms (most negative latitude, shortest distance) in Oct 2010, Venus ALSO bottoms thus predicting
the next warming peak, in the Southern Hemisphere.

Supplement 1 R2 to Ch2 of John Dodds Wobble Theory of Global Warming 11

John Dodds: Gravity causes Climate Change

When combined into an arbitrary Peak Temperature Timing Indicator (i.e. sum of the two dominant Jupiter and
Saturn latitudes) you get figure 5-3 PTTI & Temperature vs Time, which shows how the Jupiter and Saturn
negative Latitude peaks and hence gravity peaks correspond to the Earth temperature peaks and cycles.

Supplement 1 R2 to Ch2 of John Dodds Wobble Theory of Global Warming 12

John Dodds: Gravity causes Climate Change

Note how the redlines (1,2,3…) correspond to the recent 60 year temperature peaks. Also that where the data is
sufficiently detailed, the 12 year peaks for Jupiter orbits can be observed as sub-cycles within the 60 year cycles.
Note how the blue vertical line (~1790) which indicates a change in secondary peaks of the latitudes, ALSO
corresponds to the change in direction from cooling to warming in the temperature data.

Due primarily to the eccentric orbits of Jupiter and Saturn, and the subsequent Earth eccentricity caused by Jupiter
etc, the energy from gravity coming into the Earth varies in both magnitude (due to distance) and latitude angles
above and below the Sun-Earth ecliptic plane. This latitude variation results in the energy source for the North-
South variations in El Nino/La Nina, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, the SOI, and the NAO etc , and desert
movements (West Africa/Sahara/Australia etc). There have been numerous studies that have identified the
correlation of El Nino etc to the Earth temperature variations and weather
patterns/hurricanes/cyclones/drought/rainfall etc. This paper identifies that the gravity/PE variations primarily due
to Jupiter Saturn and Venus eccentricity are the direct cause of the increases and decreases in energy that drive the
El Nino etc weather patterns. This makes these patterns predictable, in a manner similar to how tide tables are
predictable based on the positions of the Earth rotation and the sun and moons gravity.
The combination of a reduced energy input after every sixty year peak (1880, 1940, 1998, 2058…) and the location
of primarily Jupiter at its most extreme southern latitude point, results in the recent northern hemisphere colder
winters (1999-2009), and southern hemisphere warmer summer on the same 60 year cycle as the Jupiter/Saturn
resonances. This is why the current northern winters are colder, like they were from the 1940-70. The more
southern location of Jupiter forces a reduced energy input to the Hadley circulation cells moving them south from
the colder Arctic into the USA, Europe and Asia, the more temperature southern US weather moves into the
Caribbean resulting in fewer hurricanes, the warmer tropical weather due to increased Jupiter gravity moves further
south into Northern Australia and Indonesia causing more frequent and stronger cyclones going further south, and
the hot dry air in the Sahara and Central Australia moves south causing more droughts and fires in Southwest Africa,
South Australia and Victoria. Thirty years later as Jupiter/Saturn get more northern and further away, the cycle
reverses and the northern cooling reverses resulting in milder northern winters for 30 years (1970-98). Of course
there are also 12 year (Jupiter orbit) and one year (Earth orbit) sub cycles. The latter are called seasons.
The knowledge of the gravitational energy forcing of longer term weather patterns will allow much more accurate
forecasts of ice ages, drought/wet seasons, hurricane/cyclone seasons, and general agricultural conditions to allow
man to adapt accordingly.

The larger gravity sources of energy and potential energy (e.g. gravity causes tidal energy etc) are not included in
the insolation only based IPCC AR4 analyses which thus invalidates these analyses and conclusions In addition the
solar insolation is the sole source of energy for the Milankovitch cycle theory, but adding gravity as a source of
energy solves its most significant problem of having insufficient energy variation to account for ice ages.

In conclusion, the current IPCC analyses attribute global warming to the addition of CO2 to the air, when in fact the
limited amount of energy photons coming into the earth limits the amount of greenhouse effect warming.. This
results in more EXCESS, unused CO2 in the air but no additional warming.
The alternate sources of energy created by gravity due to planetary eccentricity and the subsequent Gravitational
Potential Energy dictate the global climate temperatures. The basis for the gravity and Potential Energy sources is
discussed in John Dodds Wobble Theory of Global Warming available at
