Global Warming Bests Maxwell's Demon

James Maxwell proposed a hypothetical system involving a demon that decreased entropy in violation of the 2nd LoT. My discussions on this forum have enlightened me to real world Global Warming methods that should easily demonstrate how we can violate the 2nd LoT and create unlimited energy.

Step 1) We create a "greenhouse gas" furnace that simply utilizes the "greenhouse effect" to increase the temperature of the furnace without adding additional energy.

Step 2) For greater effect, we apply a "Surface Detail CO2 Feedback Loop" that "amplifies" the temperature increases of step 1.

Step 3) We use the "runaway" increased temperature of the furnace to drive pistons (perform work) of an electrical generator.

Is there any part about this that shouldn't work? Nobel Prize in physics anyone?

Hello IB,
I'm still waiting on a reply from you on:

I know you're oh so busy running for the Nobel Prize, but maybe you can spare a few grey cells..

Does it have anything to do with the OP?

I love it! You've solved the energy crisis! We could even use it to drive pistons to cool the rest of the world from the effects of CO2! It's limitless energy!

This is a classic Spinal Tap edition of the Surface Detail CO2 Temperature-increase amplifier. It goes up to "11." It makes Global Warming one louder.

Nonono, the energy from Global Warming only comes from the Sun, it's not free.

Here comes the Magick Blanket or the Magick Mirror argument...

Look, what part don't you understand? It's like a bathtub with the drain and the faucet left on. If I completely plug up the drain, it'll overflow. If I clog the drain slightly, the water level will rise until the output equals the input again. Output is proportional to current level only if you ignore other changes, such as the clog. Therefore, equilibrium is at a higher level. The clog itself does not raise the level.

Besides, the atmosphere already warms the Earth, right? Why can't a different gas do that more effectively?

It turns out that the current atmosphere does not, in fact, significantly warm the Earth, at least when compared to its main effect, that of stabilizing the temperature over days and weeks.

The atmosphere does not warm the Earth. Average Earth is the same as the Moon with the exception that our core is quite a bit hotter. (Yes, it's significant enough to make a difference)

Really? I thought the S-B equations said that Earth would be 255K without an atmosphere. That's somewhat chilly.

Why did you think that? Did you see an "atmosphere" variable in the equation?

Warmizombies are forever describing "greenhouse gas" as a warm, comfy blanket that snuggles the earth in warmth. This reveals the fundamental scientific illiteracy of warmizombies.

On the one hand, the concept of a blanket keeping something warm implies that the object to be kept warm is the source of thermal energy, e.g. a person. When the object is NOT the energy source, e.g. a stone at room temperature, a blanket cannot "warm it up" unless the blanket is a magical one.

Also, it shows the predictable confusion facing warmizombies who cannot distinguish between thermal radiation and thermal conduction/convection. No blanket can prevent thermal radiation from freely pouring out of any substance. To do so it would make it a very magical blanket.

No. Have you not been reading, or is your memory strictly short-term?

The S-B equation only calculates an effective temperature. That has little to do with actual temperature. In every case where this equation is used to calculate what a planet's temperature is supposed to be, it is close but wrong.

The reason I have already given. There are a lot of factors that go into a real temperature that S-B by itself doesn't address.

All the S-B equation is good for when calculating temperatures of planets and moons is that it gets you somewhere near the ball park. It's not good enough for a ticket into the park, though.

A better to use S-B is to show the nature of the relation as something warms or cools. This is the way IBDaMann is using the equation, and produces a far more valid use of it.

The Magick Blanket argument attempts to compare carbon dioxide with some kind insulation, such as a house or even a blanket used to keep you warm. It is a fallacy based on a false equivalence by inserting a heat source under the blanket at the appropriate time and ignoring it at another time.

It has been used numerous times by people who don't understand that carbon dioxide has no insulative properties, and that tend to fall for such a false equivalence.
