So we've all seen the quotes in IB's sig. "Huh," you might have though. "Those greenies sure do sound stupid."

Well, what you've observed is nothing other than the art of taking-things-out-of-context. For posterity, I will provide and describe that context here.

Global Warming: The preferred religion of the scientifically illiterate.


Usual jab. It's lacking the "WARMIZOMBIE" rant, though.

Ceist - I couldn't agree with you more. But when money and religion are involved, and there are people who value them above all else, then the lies begin. - trafn


And here's what he's responding to:

Ceist wrote:
The internet is full of crackpot cranks making all sorts of bizarre evidence-free claims. Does anyone take them seriously? (except other crackpot cranks or people so desperate to find anything at all to 'confirm' their religious/ideological beliefs, that they'll use anything they find on the internet, no matter how ridiculous)

That's why when making claims about science, I think it's preferable to use evidence-based authoritative sources like the major science institutions, current science textbooks, science Journals etc.


And here's his response to IB's OOC quote:

trafn wrote:
Well, I've seen you have found yet another way to try and insult and humiliate people, by adding their quotes in your signature in a way that manipulates the quote to say the exact opposite of what the author intended.

You never cease at coming up with new ways of showing that you are not just a troll, but an **** as well.


And Ceist's:

Ceist wrote:
Well IB certainly quotes your post out of context in a deceitful way in his signature. You were replying to my post:

Ceist wrote:
listed above


I was referring to the fact that IBdaMann stampedes around the internet ranting that climate science is a religion and that climate scientists and anyone else who doesn't accept his crank beliefs are morons and Marxist warmazombies following a religious cult ... blah blah blah. He claims he is only saying what the 'body of science' says, despite never being able to provide any authoritative science sources when challenged (because there aren't any that support his ridiculous pseudoscience nonsense
).

Then, when he finally provides a link, he used Cliff Harris's website as an 'authoritative' source.
And it turned out that Cliff Harris is a devout Christian who believes that only God can change the earth's climate and believes he can predict the climate using the Bible. Harris claims he is one of the "top 10 climatologists in the last few decades" because he has kept some temperature 'scrapbooks' since he was a child.
Like IB, he also has no qualifications or background in any field of science, or any published research, but they both hold the delusional belief they are 'experts'.

IBdaMann: Hoisted with his own 'religious' petard*.


Incredibly funny.

You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word "accumulation"! - Climate Scientist.


Aaand here's the whole paragraph.

IBdaMann wrote:
Yet they nonetheless felt the need to stick in Global Warming "conclusions" that weren't supported by anything in the report (emphasis mine):
Thus, due to a warmer atmosphere driving an increased capacity for moisture, and in common with the findings of Davis and others (2005) in East Antarctica, accumulation in the interior of the Greenland ice sheet has increased slightly in the currently warming climate

Ergo, ice mass is accumulating because of Global Warming.
I can read English. I presume you can as well.

Um, no you can't! You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word accumulation! They are talking about snow accumulation in Greenland's interior. They don't quantify ice sheet melting anywhere, or quantifying the mass balance of Greenland, which would require determining whether snow accumulation exceeds ice sheet melting.


IB thinks that an increase in the snowfall implies an increase in the mass balance. Apparently, he's never lived where it snows, because something tends to happen to ice and snow - it melts. Of course if you ignore melting, increasing accumulation increases the mass balance! And if you ignore relativity, I can travel at twice the speed of light. Neither of these actually matter in the real world.

The Stefan-Boltzman equation doesn't come up with the correct temperature if greenhouse gases are not considered - Hank


And here's the context.

That is exactly what I am saying.


Please then explain how we are not living on a dead ice bound planet. You can calculate what the temperature at the surface of a planet would be at a particular distance from the Sun.

The surface temperature of the Earth should be on average about -16C, instead it is +16C. -16C is almost exactly what the average surface temperature of the Moon is. What is the difference? An atmosphere that traps the Sun's heat.

The shape of the molecules are important - an asymmetric molecule (CO2, CH4, NxO, O3, etc) traps IR in the requisite wavelength band. Symmetric molecules (O2, N2, Ar, He) do not.


Great explanation. The Stefan-Boltzman equation doesn't come up with the correct temperature if greenhouse gases are not considered.


:*sigh* Not the "raw data" crap. - Leafsdude


Now, IB is known for stating that "evidence", "supporting data", and "sources" have no place in science, so he's one for talking, but he appears to be attempting to portray Leafsdude as saying that raw data is useless or doesn't need to be shown.


*sigh*

Not the "raw data" crap.

Raw data does not show accurate trends. As many deniers like to state, using raw data would not account for effects like the Urban Heat Island effect or El Nino's and La Nina's (though the latter can and does show up even when the data is modified) as well as basic noise from normal, natural changes in yearly weather patterns. This is why climatologists use anomalous temperature events rather than actual temperatures, as they've proven to be more accurate at showing trends.


IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist


And this seems to be trying to paint Ceist as not having an understanding of Planck.

The greenhouse effect is energy neutral. This is because the greenhouse effect affects the Earth as well as the space. It warms the Earth a little bit at the expense of cooling the space a little bit. Of course, the space is so big the effect on the space is not measurable. The effect on Earth is also very small, at most a few C.

So you believe "greenhouse effect" can, and does, violate Planck's Law?

No substance can affect thermal radiation. Temperature is the only determinant.

Why do you keep repeating this crap?

Planck's Law describes the emission spectrum of an ideal blackbody. Real objects are not ideal blackbodies, and gases at atmospheric pressure are not blackbodies at all. Look at this video, for example:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exfJ8VPQDTY

The methane looks completely black at this IR wavelength, even though it's at about the same temperature as the surrounding gases. That's because it's methane!
Ask IB to explain what he thinks Planck's Law actually means



So far the closest he has come to posting what he thinks it means is:

IBdaMann wrote: Planck's Law is very easy to understand: Temperature determines thermal radiation.


That's not explaining Planck's Law. He leaves out that it's a function of wavelength (or frequency).

(And totally ignores emissivity)

A. Does "greenhouse gas" cause the earth to increase in temperature with decreasing emission, in violation of Stefan-Boltzmann?

B. Does "greenhouse gas" cause the earth to increase in energy (i.e. increase in temperature) without increasing in energy (so as to not violate the 1st LoT)?

...the ball is in your court.

The GHE reduces emissions. This causes an increase in temperature.
B. Does "greenhouse gas" cause the earth to increase in energy (i.e. increase in temperature) without increasing in energy (so as to not violate the 1st LoT)?

No. There is an increase in energy. This doesn't violate the 1st, because there is a temporary decrease in the radiation that Earth gives off. The reduction of emissions exactly counterbalances the increase in temperature - more energy on Earth, less in space.
...the ball is in your court.

Indeed. I'd just like to clarify something: do you think that any substance is capable of affecting the emissions of Earth?

If so, is any substance capable of reducing the emissions of Earth?

No, I don't. The total amount of energy in the ESS (Earth, Sun, space) system is not different between Earth-without-GHG and Earth-with-GHG. The amount of energy on Earth has increased, the amount of energy in space has decreased.

No. Stefan-Boltzmann requires radiance and temperature to go in the same direction, i,e, if temperature increases then so does radiance.

You insist on violating this. Anytime you claim radiance decreases but temperature increases then you are violating Stefan-Boltzmann.

This might be a semantic quibble but you need to then find a different term. "Emissivity" is defined as a constant.

I have a question for you, though.

What solar radiation does "greenhouse gas" absorb that the earth's surface does not? Is there any?

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

This might be a semantic quibble but you need to then find a different term. "Emissivity" is defined as a constant.

You mean within the context of S-B and Planck? Yes, it is. That's what allows us to make the graphs - we assume that the emissivity is constant over all wavelengths.

But even without changing the substance, that's not true for everything! Many substances have different emissivities for different wavelengths. That assumption is not true for most of reality.

I have a question for you, though.

What solar radiation does "greenhouse gas" absorb that the earth's surface does not? Is there any?

Almost none. The GHGs don't significantly interact with sunlight IIRC.

Almost none? So there is some, yes? Then my question stands. What solar radiation does "greenhouse gas" absorb that the earth's surface does not?
