Or, you could just look up what he actually wrote instead of speculating - Svante Arrhenius (1906):
...
That was over a hundred years ago. The IPCC last estimated doubling the CO2 concentration to cause a 1.5C to 4.5C increase in temperature. NASA says the Earth's temperature rose between 0.6C and 0.9C from 1906 to the present. The CO2 concentration has risen by about 1/4th, from ~300ppm to ~400ppm. How wrong was he, precisely?


He was VERY wrong about a lot of things. First the absorption of infrared radiation by CO2 does not double with a doubling of CO2 levels... This increase is not linear with increase in CO2 levels as there is saturation in CO2. Think of CO2 like a sponge. If you dip a dry sponge into a bucket of water it absorbs a lot of water. But if you dip an already wet sponge the sponge absorbs LESS water as it is already saturated with water. CO2 functions in the same principle as the sponge analogy.

However, there was one thing Arrhenius was right about. He stated that the increase in CO2 would BENEFIT all the green biomass of Earth as they would have more food to feed with. CO2 is food for plants, not to mention AGAIN that an increase of CO2 levels to 1,000ppm ( we now have 400ppm) will increase the yield/harvest of all green biomass.

It's an illustration of the simple scientific fact that even a minute quantity of a substance can have an effect on an environment, which you mocked with your gigantic images. Botox is not simply a cosmetic treatment - it's an extremely potent toxin.


Wrong analogy... CO2 is not a toxic substance at the levels it exists on Earth's atmosphere. Botox in itself is a very toxic substance...

At the levels that CO2 exists on Earth's atmosphere, and as I have already demonstrated many times before, even in this thread. CO2 even at levels MUCH HIGHER than at present is BENEFITIAL to all life on the planet...

There is NOTHING similar between CO2 and "botox".

I think I've gone over this before. Why don't you define "now" and "much higher" for us, so that we can have a clearer understanding of your argument? Since skeptic websites frequently cite this, I'm sure it won't be much trouble.


You haven't done such a thing... You just keep going around in circles and claiming things you haven't done.

The Medieval Warming Period had global temperatures up to 1-3C the levels of the late 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century. Not even today on 2014 are temperatures higher than they were in the Medieval Warm Period. A period in which CO2 levels were LOWER than now...

Abstract
Lake-based paleotemperature reconstructions are of particular importance in the Arctic, where other useful archives (e.g., tree rings, speleothems) for developing dense networks of quantitative climate records are absent or limited.
...
The previously published mass accumulation rate from Lower Murray Lake has been interpreted as a paleotemperature record and provides complimentary information to the new alkenone record. Melt percentage measurements from the nearby Agassiz Ice Cap provide another independent summer temperature reconstruction for comparison. Most strikingly, the alkenone record reveals warm lake water temperatures beginning ~800 AD and persisting until ~1200 AD, with temperatures up to 2-3 deg C warmer than the mean temperature for the past 100 years. This dramatic medieval warm period on Ellesmere Island interrupted a distinct (neoglacial) cooling trend that had begun approximately 2000 years earlier. Furthermore, the three warmest intervals seen in the alkenone record during the past 5,000 years correspond to the periods during which the area was occupied by Paleo-Eskimo groups, providing evidence that local climate conditions played a significant role in determining migration patterns of people of the Arctic Small Tools tradition.
...

Yes, I am aware the paper on that research covers a small region of the northern hemisphere. But the fact is other research papers from all over the world shows the same trend that temperatures during the Medieval Warm period were GLOBAL and much higher than at present in North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, etc.

For the sake of brevity I will not repost all the other research work I posted in this same thread.

The Roman Warming Period had even higher temperature levels from 2C -4C.

Again, who is to forget the graph and research that showed a COOLING trend in overall temperatures from 2000 to the present in the northern hemisphere.



The yellow line shows a base line of 0 throughout the graph, while the red line shows the cooling trend from 2000 years ago to the present.

Has the Earth been warming DURING the CWP of the 20th and 21st century? Yes, it was warming as the Earth has been recuperating from the LIA (Little Ice Age) but the warming has not exceeded the warming from past warming periods such as the Medieval, the Roman and Minoan Warm Periods which were WARMER than the Current Warm Period.

Now that you recognize this, you can abandon the talking point that an increase in CO2 has no effect because the concentration is so low, which is what you were implying with the pictures before.


Again... a doubling of next to zero atmospheric CO2 at 0.04% (present level of atmospheric CO2) to almost zero double CO2 at 0.08% (which we haven't ever reached and would not reach for over 100+ years) doesn't equal "massive warming"... The increase in atmospheric CO2 is NEGLEGIBLE to global temperatures...

Again, that's IF mankind continues to release anthropogenic CO2 as it had been doing during the 20th and beginning of the 21st century.

In 100 years, or less mankind should find cleaner power sources.

BTW, why is it that the media is not publishing the fact that many so called "green energy" sources such as wind turbine farms are killing a multitude of species which for the most part are not being reported?

For example.

I can only speculate as to why there hasn’t been a prosecution. But it’s worth noting that the Pine Tree project is owned by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Prosecuting such a high-profile governmental entity for repeatedly violating some of America’s oldest wildlife-protection laws would be politically embarrassing. On its website, the LADWP claims that the Pine Tree facility is the “largest municipally owned wind farm in the US.” The agency also says the Pine Tree project “displaces at least 200,000 tons of greenhouse gases” per year.xv

In March 2013, a peer-reviewed study published in the Wildlife Society Bulletin, estimated that in 2012 alone, US wind turbines killed 888,000 bats and 573,000 birds. Those bird kills included 83,000 raptors.xvi In September 2013, some of the Fish and Wildlife Service’s top raptor biologists reported that the number of eagles being killed by wind turbines has increased dramatically over the last few years, going from two in 2007 to 24 in 2011. In all, the biologists found that wind turbines have killed some 85 eagles since 1997. And Joel Pagel, the lead author of the report, told me that that the eagle-kill figures they used are “an absolute minimum.” Among the carcasses: six bald eagles.

Pagel’s study was published just five months after the Fish and Wildlife Service issued a report which said flatly “there are no conservation measures that have been scientifically shown to reduce eagle disturbance and blade-strike mortality at wind projects.” xvii

The Pagel study is key because it shows that as more wind projects have been built, more birds have been killed. In 2007, the US had about 17,000 megawatts of installed capacity. By 2011, that figure had nearly tripled to about 47,000 megawatts.xviii Over that time period, the number of documented eagle kills increased by a factor of 12.
...

scienceandpublicpolicy.org...

What a lot of people don't seem to understand is that even so called "green power" sources are not as environmentally friendly as people are led to believe.

BTW, anyone remembers the increased "unexplained" deaths in bird species and other animals, including insects like bees, and mammals like whales, dolphins etc, all which use the magnetic field of the Earth to navigate? Hint: Wind turbine farms, solar farms, ect create anthropogenic magnetic fields that messes with the magnetic navigation of many species including birds, insects like bees, and mammals like whales, dolphins etc.

Ooops. The statement where I wrote "Again, who is to forget the graph and research that showed a COOLING trend in overall temperatures from 2000 to the present in the northern hemisphere. "

Should read "the research showed a trend in overall temperatures from 2000 years ago to the present..."

That's what happens when you are in a hurry.

Anyways, keep trying to fight against "the evil CO2" and claiming you are doing it for the environment, when the environment LOVES higher levels of atmospheric CO2... Not to mention, again, the fact that with higher atmospheric CO2 levels than now, even at 1,000ppm all green biomass makes better use of water, leaving more water for humans and animals to use.

Everyone knows we need water right?... We also need CO2. STOP trying to claim CO2 is a pollutant when it is not... Stop trying to claim CO2 is not needed when it is an essential building block for life to exist on this planet...

BTW Greven, and the rest of the AGW religious followers out there. Do tell me how much you, your pets and plants are suffering inside all those buildings you live in and work in with A/C (air conditioning) or heaters which increase indoor atmospheric levels of CO2 to 1,000ppm +... It should be a "disaster for all life" according to them...

a reply to: Phage

Hi Phage,

I think you misunderstand what the PDO index represents. The cool/warm phase only refers to the spatial patterns of sea surface temperature and sea level pressure anomalies in the extra-tropical North Pacific. The index is an abstract form to describe natural mean state changes in the North Pacific over multiple decades and it's not a representation of any particular process.

The meaning of "warm/cool" or "positive/negative" is counter-intuitive in this context, because SST anomalies are on average warmer in most of the North Pacific during the cool/negative phase, and vice versa.





When SSTs are anomalously cool in the interior North Pacific and warm along the Pacific Coast, and when sea level pressures are below average over the North Pacific, the PDO has a positive value. When the climate anomaly patterns are reversed, with warm SST anomalies in the interior and cool SST anomalies along the North American coast, or above average sea level pressures over the North Pacific, the PDO has a negative value.








www.ncdc.noaa.gov...
www.nc-climate.ncsu.edu...


jisao.washington.edu...

The index only contains SST and SLP data from the North Pacific region and can not reflect patterns/changes anywhere else. It could not be used to attribute sea ice changes to climate drivers in the Pacific.

There is in fact a strong link between leading climate modes in the Arctic Ocean and the tropical and extra-tropical Pacific, via atmospheric bridges and poleward moving currents.


happy summertime!

Northland has though thought this scam through quite well. They've learned from the AMO, ECLEI, UN and IPCC based sustainability scams promoted by the government and the corporate/town entitlement grants that they use as a weapon to force Agenda 21 based change from the "bottom-up."

I still fail to see how this derail has anything to do with climate change.

The only ones with a straw man argument and who keep dismissing facts are people like you, aka the AGW crowd.

False, a TINY amount of energy cannot contribute LOTS of energy.

That's what was thought, but in fact we know now that heat has been escaping the Earth's atmosphere at much higher levels than were previously thought possible.

You claim that I claim massive warming. I did not, and you cannot show where I wrote such. Thus, you have constructed a strawman that you handily destroyed. If you do not understand what these words mean, I suggest you go study. I am not 'the AGW crowd' and I do not necessarily accept everything everyone associated with AGW claims. I wouldn't claim that you believe that the Earth is cooling, simply because some of the people who agree with you claim that.

You either do not understand the question or are refusing to actually answer it. Again, as your assertion is that CO2 doesn't cause warming, the question was:

show us where CO2 didn't cause warming while other factors were not involved

Please answer this. I and everyone else who is worried about our planet's future

No - you are missing every point. Given enough insulation (like a closed system) and enough fuel, even something as small as a candle can heat a stadium, given enough time. If you do not understand how this can occur, you need a refresher on the law of conservation of energy. An analogy, though not a perfect one, is our Earth itself. The insulation in this case is the Earth's atmosphere - mostly water vapor, as you note (and no, science does not ignore it). Since we can't turn down the Sun, we can't stop the heat from warming us up. Fortunately for us, the Earth's atmosphere is a bit drafty, and leaks a good amount of radiation back into space. CO2 is that little patch in the drafty atmosphere, which is ever so slightly increasing the insulation of our atmosphere. Additionally, since water vapor can increase as more heat is trapped and evaporates water, this can make the insulation even thicker.

Yes, and Spencer/Braswell's paper is kinda crummy and published in a journal that is not exactly climate-related. The editor-in-chief of the journal resigned and apologized for that publication! A fatal error in the paper is that they used a simplistic model - too simplistic:

The model has no realistic ocean, no El Niño, and no hydrological cycle, and it was tuned to give the result it gave.

Forgive me if I don't take the erroneous research of a habitually error-prone researcher seemingly bent on proving AGW wrong (but failing) too seriously.

You claimed that he claimed that a doubling of atmospheric CO2 would lead to an increase of 5-6C. On the other hand, he wrote that a doubling of atmospheric CO2 would increase temperatures by 4C. You were wrong. You'll probably gloss over it, just like SonOfTheLawOfOne did earlier when shown how wrong he was. Maybe with a series of random quotes and charts again, even! As I mentioned, the atmospheric CO2 concentration has risen by about 25% (300 -> 400 ppm) and the global temperature has risen by an estimated 15% to 23% of his estimation (4C at 200% of 1906 CO2 ppm). But do go on about the numerous ways he was wrong - with citations, please.

It's only wrong if you don't understand the point. You keep pooh-poohing the impact of CO2 because it's oh so very small in the atmosphere. You would be laughed out of a chemistry lab with such an attitude. The clear counterpoint is that even small concentrations can have an effect..

A) You're wrong again. Temperatures are only potentially that much higher if you think the present is 1850. I direct you to this chart from this immense and extensive study. If anything, we're at or above MWP temperatures today (as in 2014).
B) You are missing that there were other factors beyond just CO2 and temperature. Again. Shocking, I know.

Ah yes, who can forget that chart and research that I responded to back on page 21 of this very thread. Who's talking in circles, again?

You claim I and others are religious followers. Clearly you must not be religious, if you think such a thing is an insult. Nor are you correct in your continued slander. I base my opinion on AGW on scientific findings. Not models, not theories, but what's been recorded as happening and known mechanisms.

You frequently insult anyone who disagrees with you with thinly disguised attacks. You go off on tangents and attempt to drown out discourse with unnecessarily long posts that are mostly made up of quotations that are recycled content from earlier, entirely irrelevant, or not pruned of irrelevant content. It is annoying.

I tire of the excrement that you keep filling this thread with. You claim you base your opinion on scientific findings?

How about out of 26 sources that you provided in ALL of your posts, 11 of them are well-known, biased, AGW proponent sources? You exclude sources that are dissenting because they fit your world-view and mental model, so you refuse to see the scientific findings that are still true and valid, because it would dismantle your arguments and opinions.

Look Greven… if you’re going to call someone out, you better be ready to lay all of your cards on the table. You already tried this once before in this thread, by falsely accusing me of something I didn’t say, because you didn’t read the rest of the posts in the thread. You were flat out, WRONG, for doing so. You were convinced that I was lying until I shoved the proof in your face by pointing you to Raymunduko’s prior post, and you hardly admitted you were wrong.

You also did something similar with bobs_uruncle by first insulting him, when he CLEARLY has a far superior background to yours in that area:


You're quite ignorant of how electrical grids work and greatly misunderstand what's being done in this situation.


And then turned around after you got owned by his response and said:


I certainly could be wrong in this instance, since I don't know the full situation.


I think the same applies to the rest of the thread. And even after that, you continue to try to cover up your arrogance in a follow-up post with this:


I still fail to see how this derail has anything to do with climate change.


That was your only way to deal with your grossly arrogant reply based on an assumption that your understanding of a subject was superior to theirs, because as bobs_uruncle pointed out:


In addition, I know quite well how the grids work and generating stations, because I am an engineer and I designed critical systems in both nuclear and thermal generating stations.


I doubt that you’ve done the same, but you took a position of immediate superiority and called someone “quite ignorant”, who would otherwise be considered an expert in a field that you are obviously not.

You seem so certain that others in this thread like myself, raymunduko or ElectricUniverse should be treated the same, even though you’ve demonstrated your own willful arrogance and ignorance. You have no idea what kind of backgrounds any of us have in this subject, but are completely willing to dismiss anything that shows the disagreement in climate science.

You presented a graph that was an inaccurate representation of the data. I showed you where you were wrong because you were using the wrong data from GISS. You have the cajones to say something like this:


You'll probably gloss over it, just like SonOfTheLawOfOne did earlier when shown how wrong he was. Maybe with a series of random quotes and charts again, even!


Even though when you were shown that your own graph was incorrect because of a simple mistake in your source data, you admitted that I was correct:


The reason they look much different is because I was plotting average annual temperatures, rather than monthly temperatures.


And then you tried to cover it by pointing out stupid axis shift tricks in the graph that anyone could do, to try and show how the data can be manipulated, which ironically illustrated most of my arguments about bad data.

I don’t gloss over anything, and I actually listen clearly to both sides of the argument because there are valid points on both sides. I draw my own conclusions, and with my background, the AGW and CO2 theory is riddled with holes, just like a crime scene with tons of missing evidence.

Let's go into more detail about just how you


base my opinion on AGW on scientific findings. Not models, not theories, but what's been recorded as happening and known mechanics.


Almost ALL of the AGW findings are based on models and theories, even the IPCC has admitted that much. That alone, shows how ridiculous your statement is since your sources from SkepticalScience LOVE to use the IPCC and all of those wonderful models and theories that you pretend not to use. In my next post, I'll make sure to highlight how little you use the models and theories.

Let’s take a closer look at the “meat” of the argument between the two sides on this thread and the 5 main people that have been arguing and see how our arguments and sources stack up. You should know by now that Wattsupwiththat and SkepticalScience are both hard to include because they are knowingly biased in a lot of ways. For the sake of brevity, let’s include them anyway but separate them.

Here is a list of every link for every source that was posted between the 5 of us, and doesn’t include the DOZENS of graphs and images that ElectricUniverse posted.

It is to show two things:

1) The science and the argument is clearly, NOT settled.
2) The difference in biased versus unbiased sources.

(Unbiased sources considered to be raw data sources, published papers or sources with references to published papers.)

Now, I'm done in this thread. People deserve to see BOTH sides of the argument, so hopefully the previous posts help illustrate that for anyone who wants to fact-find and seek their own version of the truth... NOT MINE, and certainly, NOT YOURS.

I’m not going to keep going back and forth with you or anyone else anymore, because there is no reason to. If all you are going to do is try to play this tit-for-tat game, I've got much better things to do with my time.

Clearly, by looking above, the science is not settled. There is still far too much dispute over just the role the sun plays, and too much that is not understood about our climate and natural CO2 sinks, of which we have no way to accurately measure their capacity or their rate of emission. To say otherwise, is foolish and asinine, and I would laugh at any “proof” claiming to be accurate. So would any climate scientist. Few would argue that CO2 sinks are poorly measured.

The AGW theory is not sound, and it has been shown unequivocally that CO2 rises as a RESULT of temperature - ie. Cause and Effect, which governs the entire universe. For AGW to be true, either the theory is wrong and there are only rare cases of CO2 preceding temperature for some other reason besides man (because we weren't around when it happened), or cause and effect are wrong and all of science will be turned upside down by AGW.

Trying to pick apart each other’s sources, and syntactically or semantically looking for places to make an argument, instead of agreeing that the science is not refined enough to prove that humans are or are not the cause, is absolutely pointless and a waste of my time.

I will NOT however, let you diminish my character any further in a post to myself, or to someone else by being dishonest about your own position and your own posts.

If you’re going to be biased, just admit it and move on instead of pretending that you’re an open-minded individual.

Good luck with that.

~Namaste

You already tried this once before in this thread, by falsely accusing me of something I didn’t say, because you didn’t read the rest of the posts in the thread. You were flat out, WRONG, for doing so. You were convinced that I was lying until I shoved the proof in your face by pointing you to Raymunduko’s prior post, and you hardly admitted you were wrong.

You also did something similar with bobs_uruncle by first insulting him, when he CLEARLY has a far superior background to yours in that area:
...
And then turned around after you got owned by his response and said:
...
I think the same applies to the rest of the thread. And even after that, you continue to try to cover up your arrogance in a follow-up post with this:
...
You presented a graph that was an inaccurate representation of the data. I showed you where you were wrong because you were using the wrong data from GISS. You have the cajones to say something like this:
...
Even though when you were shown that your own graph was incorrect because of a simple mistake in your source data, you admitted that I was correct:
...
And then you tried to cover it by pointing out stupid axis shift tricks in the graph that anyone could do, to try and show how the data can be manipulated, which ironically illustrated most of my arguments about bad data.
...
That alone, shows how ridiculous your statement is since your sources from SkepticalScience LOVE to use the IPCC and all of those wonderful models and theories that you pretend not to use. In my next post, I'll make sure to highlight how little you use the models and theories.

On a very minor point, I was certainly wrong. I said as much before, unlike you. I most certainly did not start this little quarrel, though.

You accused me of not answering even a single question, and you were wrong. You doubled down. I pointed out that I had, again. Mysteriously, you haven't responded to that post as of yet. You even went so far as to A) question whether I had written a journal (presumably so that you could claim I couldn't comment) and B) immediately attack me over multiple posts for being utterly truthful that I both had and that there were issues in publication of it, and yet you complain about my behavior? I certainly won't complain that you're "done" with this thread.

My reply to bobs_uruncle's post was a mistake. It's not even on the topic of this thread, and I shouldn't have responded to it at all other than that. Go back and read my post and how it follows from there. There's no "got owned" about it, unless you don't read what I wrote and what I was replying to. He claimed that a company claimed they were going to "create energy" out of nothing. Saying he was ignorant of how the grid and the system worked was in retrospect a mistake, but one written based on his previous post. I went from there and explained (not that he needed it, apparently) how such a system works. He has not yet provided proof that the company in question did claim that, but I give him the benefit of the doubt (and it's a bit off-topic anyways).

Also, I was not being insulting or arrogant. Saying someone is ignorant of how something works is not an insult. The word means that someone is lacking knowledge/information/awareness about something in particular, though it was not accurate in this case.

You still continue to claim I my graph was wrong. It was not. It was exactly what I said it was. There is no correction to it. I even went so far as to make another graph using your own data source. You never did get back to addressing why that chart you posted disagrees with the same source you claim it uses, instead just ignoring it. Pity, that. Oh well, not answering questions and all...

It was perhaps an over-broad proclamation. Many of the links I've provided do use a model or theory somewhere within the page. That doesn't mean I always used that link for that model or theory, though. Nor are they the only material that ascribe why I've arrived at my opinion on the subject. This "shows cooling" link was something I had to track down to figure out where a graph being used came from - it wasn't my source. Listing NASA's Earth Observatory as biased is amusing.

Clearly, by looking above, the science is not settled. There is still far too much dispute over just the role the sun plays, and too much that is not understood about our climate and natural CO2 sinks, of which we have no way to accurately measure their capacity or their rate of emission. To say otherwise, is foolish and asinine, and I would laugh at any “proof” claiming to be accurate. So would any climate scientist. Few would argue that CO2 sinks are poorly measured.

The AGW theory is not sound, and it has been shown unequivocally that CO2 rises as a RESULT of temperature
...
I will NOT however, let you diminish my character any further in a post to myself


The science is pretty well settled. Posting a bunch of links does not dispute that, it merely clouds the issue. I've addressed a great many of them, already.

CO2 is leading temperature increase and has historically, so figure that one out. Note that 'historically' is not the same as 'prehistoric' - the records you and others tend to cite where temperature leads CO2. That article is a bit out of date, though since the lag time is narrowing with more work on it. Oh, and also we're talking about Antarctica. What about the Northern Hemisphere? Well, CO2 doesn't lag temperature increase, even skeptics agree there.

You've more than well enough done that on your own.

Northland has though thought this scam through quite well. They've learned from the AMO, ECLEI, UN and IPCC based sustainability scams promoted by the government and the corporate/town entitlement grants that they use as a weapon to force Agenda 21 based change from the "bottom-up."

I still fail to see how this derail has anything to do with climate change.


It is not a derail, it is an aside to simply show the stupidity and hypocrisy. The point is that this sustainability crap along with alleged "anthropogenic climate change" being whored out by the UN to our governments is BS. It's all linked together in one big pile of stinking BS actually, they've taken both a top down and bottom up approach through the formulation of nonsensical treaties and then enlisted NGO's like ECLIE and others to manipulate and propagandize municipalities/towns/counties.

Cheers - Dave

The AGW theory is not sound, and it has been shown unequivocally that CO2 rises as a RESULT of temperature - ie. Cause and Effect, which governs the entire universe. For AGW to be true, either the theory is wrong and there are only rare cases of CO2 preceding temperature for some other reason besides man (because we weren't around when it happened), or cause and effect are wrong and all of science will be turned upside down by AGW.


Cause and effect works best using laws of physics, not statistical correlations.

Prior to man, increased CO2 caused higher temperatures which could cause increased CO2 after some geologically significant time.

Post man, human digging and burning caused increased CO2 which caused higher temperatures. Right now natural phenomena are sinks, not sources of CO2, and the temperature is going up along with atmospheric CO2 because of human digging and burning.

I think your response was well thought out and written but you fail to take into consideration the technology of the time.

People hypothesize based off the current data and the instruments available at the time to interpret that data. That has been the history of science ever since the church got out of the way.

My point is very simple and not overly complex. New instruments are constantly developed, and those instruments allow us to interpret data differently. The fact hat so many are working on new instruments right now to prove global warming correct makes be believe they will eventually prove it wrong. Climate Change is an undeniable fact, but human induced Climate Change ultimately is a theory, and most theories are proven wrong. Those theories are constantly adjusted until one day something completely breaks everything we understand.

Those anomalies make be believe that no matter how much science believes it understands, we are still at minimum 200 or more years from even understanding physics. If we don't even have a full grasp of physics, then it is safe to say we don't understand the workings of our planet, and the entire climate model.

So how about the Theory of Blank Slate that was proven wrong?
Or phrenology
How about Einstein's Static Universe?
Cold Fusion?

Or this entire list of superseded scientific theories that were once accepted by science?
