Pseudo-scientific assumptions behind, 'radiative forcing' version of the greenhouse effect, and man-made global warming hoax. Summing up:Man-made climate change is basically all speculation without proof.
|a greenhouse effect makes earth's surface 33K warmer than it would be without its atmosphere||There's no actual evidence for this. It's summized from a 'thought experiment', or speculation.|
|this greenhouse effect is only due to greenhouse gases (which absorb & emit infrared radiation)||Adiabatic warming & cooling explain why surface atmosphere is warmer than rest of troposphere|
|badly correlated CO2, and temperature rises prove causation||In science, correlation does not prove causation.|
|CO2 'traps' outbound infrared photon energy||CO2 absorbs photons & emits them at about the same energy. It's a relay, not a trap.|
|effect of H2O vapour, a more powerful and 10 times more numerous greenhouse gas than CO2, can be ignored.||Water vapour and clouds are 95% responsible for any greenhouse gas warming. Not CO2|
|earth's climate should be in equilibrium. Only man is destroying this equilibrium.||Climate is not in equilibrium. It is always changing because the sun is always changing|
|long-term averages of transient, non-equilibrium variables can be analysed as a system in equilibrium||Pure pseudo-science|
|upward (infrared) and downward (sunlight) fluxes at an ill-defined, imaginary, boundary in tropopause are equal and equivalent.||None of this is proven by experiment, nor rigorous quantitative observation.|
|change in CO2 concentration perturbs this equilibrium, so that the resultant flux change determines a new surface temperature equilibrium, 10km below.||More hocus pocus.|
|small (1 to 4 W/m²) flux changes in a cold, thin, stratospheric air 'layer' at 217K and 0.22 atm act to warm an already much warmer, denser, surface at 288K and 1 atm, acting through 11km of warmer denser air.||Most idiotic pseudoscience in history of idiocy. Once again, as with the hocus pocus (above) it only makes sense to someone ignorant of the 2nd Law of thermodynamics, and the meaning of the word law in its scientific context.|
|heat capacity of surface is zero; or can be ignored (when calculating surface temperatures).||Surface retains some heat|
|surface evaporative cooling can be ignored||surface evaporative cooling is responsible for about half of earth's surface cooling|
|conversion of IR to other forms of energy can be ignored||Energy forms convert. e.g. radiation to heat.|
|2nd Law of thermodynamics does not hold. Energy (heat) can flow from cold to hot.||The 2nd Law says what scientists always observe. It is a statement of fact.|
|the sun is constantly shining - there is no night||Earth spins. So we have nights|
|everywhere on earth gets equal solar flux, 390W/m², all the time||Polar regions get little sun. Equator gets alot|
|there are no seasons||Earth's surface experiences seasons due to its tilted spin & eliptical orbit|
There is too little CO2 in our atmosphere not too much. Atmospheric CO2 has been falling since life on earth began. Life sequesters it away as limestone and fossil fuel. It fell to only 180ppm in the last major glaciation (ice age), when colder oceans sucked so much of it out of the atmosphere. When it falls to 150ppm life on earth is over. Because plants die with CO2 at that meagre level and all animals feed on plants or other animals.
Nor should anyone assume the CO2 currently in our atmosphere will stay there. The atmospheric residence time of CO2 is about 7 years. Not 100 years as the IPCC lie it is.
Humans are not killing the planet. We have been saving the planet for life by putting CO2 into our atmosphere.
