Correct. Stefan-Boltzmann tells you that if the sun's output decreases then the earth's temperature decreases.


.


That is a major misunderstanding of the earths energy balance. The Stefan-Boltzmann equation only tells the change in temperature that the sun emits when the energy emitted from the sun changes. Since that temperature is the fourth root of the energy the forcing is weak. But all things being equal it will cause a change in the earth's temperature. But all things are not equal. CO2 causes the earth to warm like putting on a jacket warms a person even if the temperature doesn't change. Water vapor is also a greenhouse gas that causes the earth to warm if it increases. Greater reflectivity of the earth like the greening of the earth or the melting of glaciers that expose darker material below works to warm the earth. So the suns output can decrease, but if the other factors that control surface temperature increase then the net result will be an increase in temperature. The sun's output has never been a big driver of temperature change. It just sometimes starts a process that allows feedback factors to kick in.


Okay, dude. Let's just shut off the sun and SEE how big a driver of temperature change it is!

Then we can talk about water vapor and the magick energy source it contains and the magick warming its capable of.


Ok I'm beginning to see the problem. You need help with the science. There is a really big difference between how much energy the sun gives off and how much CHANGE in energy the sun gives off. We are so far away from the sun that a large change in the sun's energy will be small by the time it reaches us. Does that help

No. It is simply a somewhat lesser form of discounting the effect of the sun. No significant energy on Earth comes from anywhere except the sun.

No magick gas on Earth is a source of energy. The atmosphere is not a source of energy. It's just mass.


I completely agree. I never said anything about earth's energy not coming from the sun. Global warming is based on how much energy is retained here on earth relative to how much is reflected back out into space. The atmosphere is not a source of energy but changing the properties of the atmosphere changes the reflective property of the atmosphere. That concept is used in heat transfer design every day.

Water vapor is not a greenhouse gas. It does not add to the overall temperature of the Earth any more than nitrogen does.

Water vapor doesn't even have a big effect on temperature swing. It's specific heat is not a remarkable value in any way.


You need to get with your fellow CC deniers and decide on which argument to make. They have all been saying for years that since water vapor is a greenhouse gas that it is the cause of global warming, not CO2.

Of course nitrogen does not cause temperature to change, it's not a greenhouse gas. Its molecular structure is symmetrical.

I don't think I've ever encountered this level of stupid before, but I'll do my best to explain: emissivity isn't a constant if it changes.

You could, for example, change the emissivity of a rock by painting it with high-emissivity paint. Or you could change the emissivity of a planet by altering the composition of its atmosphere. Do you understand? If the emissivity of a body changes, it's not a constant.

Also take into account their work is speculative, we do have as well as quite a few trolls a solar physicist who occasional posts on this forum. it would be interesting to get his opinion.


We have had many such models in the past predicting huge cycles or Maunder minimum. They have one feature in common - they have all been wrong.

The idea of two interfering dynamos (oscillators) was something I have been pushing for over a decade now. Mine though is not a deep dynamo interfering with as surface but the two hemispheres (N & S).

The only problem is that such a system defies prediction. Here is the result of a similar but much simpler system two linked pendulums. From two simple oscillators were get chaos ...



We had 104 published predictions of this solar cycle up to a year in advance. How many were right? None!

So what are the chances of one being right 20 years in advance? Very Low. You may as well flip a coin.

We also have had predictions based on a "breakthrough in solar dynamo modelling" by Dr Dikpati at UCAR in the mid 2000's. It reproduced past cycles perfectly but predicted a big cycle for SC24 and we got a weak one.

Solar cycle prediction is a great business. You predict a big, average or small cycle (a 1 in 3 chance of being right) 10 -20 years in advance. If you guess right then you can say I told you so. If you guess wrong then you forget what you said (because nobody else will remember) and do a new prediction.

Some solar cycle predictors - forecast different outcomes at different times so no matter what happens they are right (look up Hathaway's many different predictions for SC24 from 2008 to the present!).


Thats interesting, thanks.

The first paragraph is just an illogical and non sequitur rant.

Which observations are wrong? The sunspot number?

It is so easy even you could do it. You look at the Sun and count the number of sunspot groups (G) and then the number of individual sunspots (N(s)).

Then SSN = 10G + N(s)

This data is not only collected by professional observatories but by hundreds of thousands of amateur astronomers round the world. I used to do it when I was a teenager. Not a lot can go wrong with that.

You are the one asserting Global Warming and "Climate change" and "greenhouse effect" and all sorts of WACKY religious unfalsifiable miracles. I am not claiming ANY religious miracles. The sole burden of proof rests with you. If I'm not making an argument it's because I'm not arguing anything; you are.

You bear the full responsibility to clearly express your arguments beyond refutation. Otherwise, if you are happy with your WACKY religious claims remaining unsupported than I'm happy to let you leave them that way.

If you actually intend to support your WACKY assertions and violations of physics then get to it.

You are the one making wild unsupported assertions and cannot find evidence to support them. The burden of proof is on the both sides of any scientific argument.

I have already explained in exquisite detail many of my arguments on various threads here and in the links I have provided and in my videos. If you choose not to listen or accept them that is your problem. I am not getting into a bring-me-another-rock situation.

It is your turn to provide something that supports your case. Put up or shut up.

Wrong. No one needs to prove a negative.

You have presented no argument other than the circular one that global warming exists because global warming exists. You then go on to try to support your case by using assumptions of the effects of global warming.

Your entire argument is based on the initial circular argument that global warming exists.

This is the core of any religion. No religion can exist without starting from a circular argument. Attempting to prove a god exists, or proving no god exists, the argument of creation, the argument of evolution, the argument of global warming, ALL begin with circular arguments.

Circular arguments are not necessarily a bad thing, but YOU MUST REMEMBER YOU BEGAN THERE! Science cannot entertain such concepts. It does not tolerate the circular argument. To use them then, is to place yourself outside the realm of science.

The problem with the Church of Global Warming is that it does not recognize this. At least most Christians recognize the value of faith in their religion.

First, learn what a fact is. You are confusing a fact with an argument.

There is no source of energy in water vapor. I do not have to prove a negative. YOU have to prove how water vapor is a source of energy.

Once again, since you seem particularly slow about this.

A fact is nothing more than an assumed predicate to an argument. It has nothing to do with observation (due to the effects of phenomenology), it has nothing to to do with what is 'established' (another word for 'consensus'), it has nothing to do with 'everyone knows that' (a fallacy of the argument of popularity, the same fallacy consensus itself makes), it has no power to 'bless' a statement as The Truth.

If all parties to an argument agree on a predicate, that predicate becomes a fact. This is why we refer to facts as 'facts of the argument'. If a single participant of that argument disputes the predicate, it is no longer a fact. It has become an argument.

Data is not a fact. It can be disputed.

A definition is not a fact. There is no authority that owns a definition. Dictionaries are not an authority.

Attempting to bless or sanctify an argument as fact is not a fact. No one has the power to raise a statement to the status of a fact with the agreement of all involved.

Observation is not a fact. It can be disputed. If an optical illusion helps here to visualize this, fine.

argumentum ad populum is not a fact. It is a fallacy. This includes the use of consensus as fact.

Note that a fact does not have to be real to be a fact.

Attempting to make water vapor a greenhouse gas is not a fact. It is an argument. simply stating that is a fact is a circular argument.

We may now return to the actual argument at hand.

What about water vapor leads you to believe it can act as an energy source?

A greenhouse gas is a gas that absorbs and emits radiation within the thermal infrared range. Water vapour absorbs and emits radiation within the thermal infrared range. Therefore water vapour is a greenhouse gas. That is a fact.

Attempting to make water vapor a greenhouse gas is not a fact. It is an argument. simply stating that is a fact is a circular argument.

We may now return to the actual argument at hand.

What about water vapor leads you to believe it can act as an energy source?


Are you saying there are no greenhouses gases?

That is exactly what I am saying.

Not a fact. A definition by you. Definitions are not a fact.

Let's say you use this definition of a substance being a greenhouse substance.

That would mean the surface and the oceans are greenhouse liquids and solids.

It would also mean that YOU are a greenhouse substance.

Since just about everything emits infrared, your definition can be simplified to any substance that absorbs IR energy. Emission is no longer required as part of the definition.

Since all substances in contact with a warmer substance (the surface) are heated by that contact, then emit IR energy as a result of that contact, your definition which limits absorption of energy to a particular mode of energy absorption seems a little silly.

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.

Once again, since you seem particularly slow about this.

A fact is nothing more than an assumed predicate to an argument. It has nothing to do with observation (due to the effects of phenomenology), it has nothing to to do with what is 'established' (another word for 'consensus'), it has nothing to do with 'everyone knows that' (a fallacy of the argument of popularity, the same fallacy consensus itself makes), it has no power to 'bless' a statement as The Truth.

If all parties to an argument agree on a predicate, that predicate becomes a fact. This is why we refer to facts as 'facts of the argument'. If a single participant of that argument disputes the predicate, it is no longer a fact. It has become an argument.

Data is not a fact. It can be disputed.

A definition is not a fact. There is no authority that owns a definition. Dictionaries are not an authority.

Attempting to bless or sanctify an argument as fact is not a fact. No one has the power to raise a statement to the status of a fact with the agreement of all involved.

Observation is not a fact. It can be disputed. If an optical illusion helps here to visualize this, fine.

argumentum ad populum is not a fact. It is a fallacy. This includes the use of consensus as fact.

Note that a fact does not have to be real to be a fact.

So why is a night with cloud cover warmer than a night with no clouds?

First, I'll mention a couple of things before answering your question.

1) Liquid water (what a cloud is) has among the highest specific heat of any substance.

2) During the day, such cloud cover produces COOLER temperatures.

3) Median air temperature changes with the passage of fronts. Such fronts often contain clouds, but the clouds are the result of the differing air temperature, not the other way around.

Answer:
It takes longer to heat up liquid water than it does to heat air. It takes longer to cool down liquid water than it does to cool air. The liquid water has not gained overall temperature different from the air, but it will hold onto the energy it gained longer than air.

Water vapor, the invisible water in the air, also has a higher specific heat than the air, but not nearly as much as liquid water.

The effect of an overcast is to narrow the temperature swing around the median, which doesn't change due to this factor.

The best way to see the effect is right here in Seattle, which often gets weeks of low stratus overcast covering the entire region.

It's not a definition by me. The universally accepted definition of a greenhouse gas is a gas that absorbs and emits radiation within the thermal infrared range. Since water vapour is a gas that absorbs and emits radiation within the thermal infrared range, it is a greenhouse gas. It is therefore a simple fact that water vapour is, by definition, a greenhouse gas.

There is no such thing as a greenhouse liquid or solid. All liquids and solids absorb and emit radiation within the thermal infrared range.

I was talking about days when it is sunny during the day and cloudy at night as opposed to sunny during the day and no clouds at night. The day temperatures are about the same but the night temperatures are a lot different.

On such days, the night might be a lot COLDER (a front moved in) or a lot WARMER (a front moved in).

Warm fronts tend to have warmer air moving in over the top of colder air. The interface tends to produce stratus clouds.

Cold fronts tend to dig under the warmer air and toss it aloft. The interface tends to have cumulus clouds.

Clouds don't just form for the hell of it. There is a reason they form and there is a reason they tend to be concentrated around weather fronts.

What makes you think it is?

How do you determine what the temperature otherwise should be such that you can tell that something is making it warmer, and how do you then know that it's the clouds making it warmer and not something else?

Just remember that anything involving the subjunctive, e.g. any could'a-would'a-should'a, automatically gets the boolsh-it flag.

It's certainly not universal. Only your "Climate" religion recognizes the WACKY "greenhouse effect" miracle. There is no "greenhouse gas" in science. I have no idea where you got that silly notion.

It's not a discovery. Everyone (except idiots like you and ITN) already knows this. Greenhouse gases change the effective emissivity of the Earth and hence change the amount of radiation emitted for a particular temperature. Remember now?

It seems it is you who has once again insisted on corrupting science and subverting it to support your WACKY religion.

Emissivity is a constant. You are choosing to intentionally treat it as a variable so you can change it from what it is (a reality that runs counter to the "greenhouse effect" miracle) to a value you desperately want it to be.

...but it's a constant. You don't get to change it. You can't accept that. I get it. So you pretend reality is something other than what it is. Let me know how it works out for you.
