 Global warming is not anthropogenic28-07-2020 19:25 Pete Rogers★★☆☆☆(160) Please examine the following proof for soundness and feel free to dismantle it if possible. Letme begin by saying that there is no empirical proof that the Greenhouse Effect (GE) has a thermal consequence though both sides agree that the presence of the atmosphere raises the planetary temperature of Earth by at least 33C which amount is known as the Atmospheric Thermal Enhancement (ATE). The IPCC say the ATE proves the thermal potency of the GE since there can be no other explanation for it. If the IPCC were right to say this it would not be unreasonable of them to claim this circumstantial evidence as proof of their position. The problem is that there is indeed a much better explanation for the ATE and here it is. Any and all bodies of gas - our own atmosphere included - undergo thermal enhancement when compressed because the heat energy contained within them consequently occupies a reduced volume so there being more heat per cubic metre causes the temperature to rise. Our own atmosphere undergoes compression at around 10 tonnes per square metre at the surface which comfortably explains the ATE leaving nothing for the GE to account for so CO2 is of no consequence, including our 3% of it. Since the 33C ATE is more or less constant it means that all temperature ups and downs over history are the result of variations in net insolation due to the interplay between alterations in solar output, the Milankovic Cycles and Albedo effects. 28-07-2020 23:38 Into the Night★★★★★(22183) Pete Rogers wrote:Please examine the following proof for soundness and feel free to dismantle it if possible. Okay. First problem. Proofs are only available in closed functional systems, such as mathematics or logic. So a proof is not possible here. I will examine your arguments now. As you are making several, I will split them up and address them one by one.Pete Rogers wrote:Let me begin by saying that there is no empirical proof that the Greenhouse Effect (GE) has a thermal consequence though both sides agree that the presence of the atmosphere raises the planetary temperature of Earth by at least 33C which amount is known as the Atmospheric Thermal Enhancement (ATE).Nope. No gas or vapor has the capability to warm the Earth. The 33 degC number is purely a made up value. It's a random number of type randU. The atmosphere does not add a single degree of temperature to the Earth.Pete Rogers wrote:The IPCC say the ATE proves the thermal potency of the GE since there can be no other explanation for it.There is no ATE, so this predicate is not valid to use for any statement by the IPCC.Pete Rogers wrote:If the IPCC were right to say thisThey aren't, since the predicate their argument is based upon is invalid.Pete Rogers wrote:it would not be unreasonable of them to claim this circumstantial evidence as proof of their position.Again, not a proof. A fallacious argument, based upon denying the 1st law of thermodynamics.Pete Rogers wrote:The problem is that there is indeed a much better explanation for the ATE and here it is.A presumption based on an invalid predicate. There is no ATE.Pete Rogers wrote:Any and all bodies of gas - our own atmosphere included - undergo thermal enhancement when compressed because the heat energy contained within them consequently occupies a reduced volume so there being more heat per cubic metre causes the temperature to rise. This gets into the ideal gas law. While compressing a gas into a smaller volume does increase its temperature, this is describing the dynamic action of compressing said gas. A gas that is already compressed can be any temperature, and it's temperature is no longer changing because it's compressed. An example of this is a compressed gas cylinder (CO2, oxygen, hydrogen, take your pick). The cylinder containing the gas is not hot. It has no insulation. It is just a steel bottle. That cylinder and the gas inside it is the same as the room temperature. These bottles have gas compressed to 3000psi, or over 200 times atmospheric pressure at the surface of Earth.Pete Rogers wrote:Our own atmosphere undergoes compression at around 10 tonnes per square metre at the surface which comfortably explains the ATENope. It's already compressed. There is no ATE. For folks in the U.S., this is equivalent to 14.7apsi, the standard pressure at standard temperature and altitude (sea level), used for various engineering purposes, including aircraft instrument design and calibration.A static pressure of 14.7aspi can be any temperature. It does not add a single degree of temperature.Pete Rogers wrote:leaving nothing for the GE to account forThere is no magick gas or 'greenhouse effect' either. No gas or vapor has the capability to create energy out of nothing.Pete Rogers wrote:so CO2 is of no consequence,But it has, just not for temperature. CO2 is a gas necessary for plant life to exist on Earth, and in turn, us.Pete Rogers wrote:including our 3% of it.The global atmospheric CO2 content is unknown. CO2 is not uniformly distributed in the atmosphere.Pete Rogers wrote:Since the 33C ATE is more or less constantThis is not a constant or a measured value. It is a random number. This predicate is invalid.Pete Rogers wrote:it means that all temperature ups and downs over history are the result of variations in net insolationOddly enough, the predicate is not needed for this conclusion. The conclusion itself, however, is based upon a different invalid predicate. There is no such thing as 'net insolation'. Sunlight striking the Earth's surface may or may not be absorbed. If not absorbed, it is simply reflected back into space again. Absorption does not necessarily convert to thermal energy. It may result in chemical energy or ionization, neither of which directly affects temperature. Only infrared light converts to thermal energy upon absorption. Most of the energy coming from the Sun that strikes the Earth is infrared light.Pete Rogers wrote:due to the interplay between alterations in solar output, the Milankovic CyclesBoth of these factors does affect the intensity of sunlight striking a given area of the surface of the Earth.Pete Rogers wrote:and Albedo effects.Albedo is not an effect. It is the inverse of emissiivity, the form used in the Stefan-Boltzmann law, relating the intensity of light radiated due to temperature. It is a measured constant. The emissivity of Earth is unknown. It is not possible to measure it. To measure it, one must first accurately know the temperature of the Earth, which is also unknown and cannot be measured. We simply do not have enough thermometers...nowhere near enough.Now. Having addressed each of arguments, which tended to be based on the invalid predicate of an ATE, and having described that the use of the ideal gas law in this way is also invalid, a few points that should be made here.First, you will see wild variations of temperature on, say, the Moon's surface. The Moon does have an atmosphere, but it's so thin it's safe to ignore it for this point. The average temperature of the Moon, like the average temperature of the Earth, is unknown. We simply do not have enough thermometers to measure either body. A single thermometer left on the surface of the Moon, however, routinely records temperatures as high as 250 deg F, and as low as -250 deg F, as it moves from day to night on the Moon. This is a temperature swing of 500 degF.Here on Earth, temperatures do not swing nearly as radically. Why?This is where the thicker atmosphere comes in. The atmosphere is mass. Like any mass, it takes time to heat and cool it. Further, the Earth spins once every 24 hours. The moon takes about a month. Remember, the average temperature of either body is unknown and cannot be calculated to any useful margin of error. There is no reason the emissivity of the Moon and the emissivity of the Earth must be identical either.While an atmosphere can directly absorb energy from the Sun, most energy absorbed and converted to thermal energy is absorbed by the surface, including the oceans. It is primarily the surface that heats the atmosphere. Not the other way around.The atmosphere is a fluid, just as the oceans are. It has currents, convection, and even has a 'tide'. Heat is the flow of thermal energy. It can occur by conduction (a hot body contacting a cold body), convection (a hot parcel of air rising and cooling as it does so by losing pressure, or a cold parcel of air sinking and warming as it does so by gaining pressure.), or by radiance (conversion of thermal energy to electromagnetic energy and back again). Heat always flows from hot to cold, or from a concentration of energy toward a relative void of energy. This is the 2nd law of thermodynamics. It is also why the atmosphere contains less thermal energy as you rise into the sky away from the surface. Through the troposphere, the temperature drops also. In the stratosphere, the temperature is rising, even though total thermal energy is still less.Temperature is average thermal energy, not the total thermal energy. This a point of confusion among the scientifically illiterate.Here the ideal gas law can come into play, with air moving over things like mountain ranges, convective movement (like storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc), and just simply benign air movement that supports hot air balloons and even gliders and soaring birds, allowing them to stay aloft for hours, gaining altitude from rising air. This air is cooling as it rises, possibly squeezing out visible droplets of water vapor as it does so, forming clouds (why clouds tend to have a flat base, and happen at the same altitudes in the vicinity.Like any fluid, hot and cold air do not mix well. This same kind of thing can be seen in ocean water as well, in the form of warm currents like the Gulf Stream. In air, this is how we get 'warm' fronts and 'cold' fronts. A warm front is warmer air contacting colder air and riding up over the top of it, rising as it does so (and cooling). Warm fronts tend to have stratus clouds associated with them (like the clouds common in Seattle). A cold front is colder air plowing into warmer air, throwing it aloft. Such fronts have violent storms associated with them, since the warm air is getting thrown higher very quickly, cooling as it does so. Cold fronts tend to move faster than warm fronts also. The greater the difference in temperature and the faster the front, the more violent the storm.Cold air coming from the Rockies and Canada collide with warmer air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico. They can meet anywhere from Texas, through Oklahoma, or possibly as far north as the Dakotas. You can get some pretty violent thunderstorms, hail, or tornadoes from these storms.Hurricanes are far bigger, and are caused by the difference between hot surface air and very cold air aloft.Violent as these storms can get, they are nothing more than convective heating of the upper atmosphere by the surface of the Earth. It is truly amazing what a bit of water vapor and a temperature difference can really do. The atmosphere is not static by any means.The Parrot KillerDebunked in my sig. - tmiddlesGoogle keeps track of paranoid talk and i'm not on their list.

According to the Stefan-Boltzmann calculation the Earth would be at 255K without an atmosphere. 255K is conducted into the Atmosphere but enhanced because of the lost volume to Gravitational Compression, which increases the heat-energy per Cubic Metre. Think of it this way, that if the atmosphere were at lower pressure it would have the same mass but larger volume, so the same S-B255K heat energy would be spread more thinly and the temperature lower. We know the temperature cannot be below 255K, so the degree of the state of compression causes the extent of the ATE. It is not clear that you understand this from what you have said though I would have thought it straightforward and robust, Gravity is responsible for the ATE, not the GE. It means that CO2 has no thermal effect. 29-07-2020 14:17 Pete Rogers★★☆☆☆(160) Dear IBdaMann, There is definitely a greenhouse effect in the sense that some gas molecules, such as water vapour and CO2 are not transparent to Infrared waves. This was discovered in the 19th Century by the Irish/English Physicist John Tyndall and his experimental proof is why rational people are correct to accept it as far as that goes. The question is whether it has a thermal consequence as that was not experimentally established. You should see that the argument I have put shows definitively that it does not. Albedo also seems to be misunderstood here if you will forgive me for observing to that effect- it is just the % of the reflection of incoming solar rays straight back out with no heating effect on the planet. The main causes of Albedo are Clouds and Ice caps. Thermodynamics is precisely the basis of this proof that the ATE (not my coinage, but a scientific one) is caused by compression not the GE. The definition of the Atmospheric Thermal Enhancement; since you ask so kindly: is "The number of degrees by which the presence of the Atmosphere increases the temperature of the planet above 255K." Your comparison of IPCC with religious organisations is amusing since both are evangelistic it seems to me. For instance the IPCC does not permit funding of research that is not pre-determined to support the idea that man is guilty of climate change so that embarrassing questions do not arise. Religions try to pull off the same trick of avoiding embarrassing questions so I commonly ask them how it can be reasonable - or even sane - to tell us that a being which does worse than murder to almost every human past present and future by their eternal torment in hell can possibly be love entire, the results are spectacular - collapse of stout parties. Here on Climate Change I am simply showing that IPCC are wrong. Gravity is responsible for the ATE because of the ideal gas law and what is happening is natural as always. 29-07-2020 16:57 IBdaMann★★★★★(14652) Pete Rogers wrote: According to the Stefan-Boltzmann calculation the Earth would be at 255K without an atmosphere. Pete, stop listening to morons. There is so much wrong with this statement of yours it would take a day to unpack and adequately address. The bottom line is that some scientifically illiterate morons baffled you with gibber-babble and instead of calling "bulslhit" you simply came here and regurgitated it.I will help you out. Please take notes.1. There is no "the Stefan-Boltzmann calculation." First, the Stefan-Boltzmann law calculates Radiance given a Temperature. Radiance is the dependent variable and Temperature is the independent variable. That equation requires the constant Emissivity ... and in the case of the earth, it is not known to any usable extent. Anyone claiming otherwise is lying to you. 2. Nobody has ever computed the earth's actual average temperature to within any usable margin of error. Nobody has ever been able to calculate the earth's theoretical average temperature using Stefan-Boltzmann because the earth's emissivity is simply not known. Anyone claiming otherwise is lying to you. 3. Anytime you are talking about the earth's temperature, the earth's atmosphere, or the earth having an atmosphere is irrelevant. The earth's atmosphere is part of the earth. Only if you are specifically focused the atmosphere (and thus NOT on the earth) does it make sense to talk about the temperature at the bottom of the atmosphere (aka, the planet's solid or liquid surface). The temperature at any point at the bottom of the atmosphere is NOT the earth's average temperature. Of course there must be an atmosphere in order to discuss the bottom of the atmosphere. Obviously it makes no sense to discuss the bottom of the atmosphere where there is no atmosphere. Pete Rogers wrote: ... enhanced because of the lost volume to Gravitational Compression, which increases the heat-energy per Cubic Metre. This is an absurd statement. It increases the temperature wherever it increases the temperature and it decreases the temperature wherever it decreases the temperature. Those who discuss the atmosphere in terms of exclusively increasing temperature frankly are idiots ... like tmiddles. I hope you are not another denier of the earth's much, much colder than daytime temperatures at the bottom of its atmosphere than the daytime temperatures at the moon's solid surface. The atmosphere merely drives temperatures towards the planet's average temperature, which means increasing some and decreasing some. Check the difference between daytime and nightime temperatures on earth vs. the moon.Pete Rogers wrote:Think of it this way, that if the atmosphere were at lower pressure it would have the same mass but larger volume, ... and the planet's average temperature would remain unchanged and the atmosphere would remain part of the planet. .I don't think i can [define it].

Until then, the undefined does not exist. Pete Rogers wrote: This was discovered in the 19th Century by the Irish/English Physicist John Tyndall Nope. Tyndall did not discover anything.

Emissivity is all you need; albedo is computed from Emissivity, i.e. 1.0 - Emissivity. Morons use "albedo" because they want to talk about energy that isn't having any effect on the system as though it is of importance ... as opposed to ignoring it. Only energy that is absorbed is of consequence. Only "Emissivity" matters. Morons and frauds expose themselves by using "albedo."

This is empirically proven, but the claim that it warms the planet (thermal consequence) is not, but assumed circumstantially instead as the cause of the ATE. That gas compression increases temperature is indisputable; except by said moron: even from the modest discovery that you went "ouch" after a bit when pumping your bike tyre up, to the fact that large gas bodies reach temperatures of such enormity from precisely their own gravitational compression that at billions (perhaps) of degrees stars are formed from their material. Every body of gas has its temperature increased by its state of compression because the heat energy per cubic metre goes up to the extent of the reduction in volume occupied. It would only be said moron who would find that difficult to follow would it not and it definitely means we have our ATE (however large or small) and that it is due to gravity not CO2?Ice and clouds reflect a % of the Sun's UV so that % does not get to heat the Earth's surface - that's all I mean by the measure of albedo - so the more cloud and ice the more the albedo and the less the net insolation accordingly. Emissivity needs no incorporation to clarify any of this - it is already clear.The First Law of Thermodynamics is the basis for the ATE as according to it the negative work performed by gravity must increase the temperature due to conservation of that energy within the reduced volume. If you are an expert you would know this - please advise if otherwise. 29-07-2020 22:26 IBdaMann★★★★★(14652) Pete Rogers wrote: Dear IBdaMann, The GE shows simply Stop. I am ignoring everything you write about Greenhouse Effect until you give me an unambiguous definition, specifying whether or not there is an increase in temperature involved and if so, accounting for the additional energy required to so increase that temperature.

Letme begin by saying that there is no empirical proof that the Greenhouse Effect (GE) has a thermal consequence though both sides agree that the presence of the atmosphere raises the planetary temperature of Earth by at least 33C which amount is known as the Atmospheric Thermal Enhancement (ATE). The IPCC say the ATE proves the thermal potency of the GE since there can be no other explanation for it. If the IPCC were right to say this it would not be unreasonable of them to claim this circumstantial evidence as proof of their position. The problem is that there is indeed a much better explanation for the ATE and here it is. Any and all bodies of gas - our own atmosphere included - undergo thermal enhancement when compressed because the heat energy contained within them consequently occupies a reduced volume so there being more heat per cubic metre causes the temperature to rise. Our own atmosphere undergoes compression at around 10 tonnes per square metre at the surface which comfortably explains the ATE leaving nothing for the GE to account for so CO2 is of no consequence, including our 3% of it. Since the 33C ATE is more or less constant it means that all temperature ups and downs over history are the result of variations in net insolation due to the interplay between alterations in solar output, the Milankovic Cycles and Albedo effects. So you're saying that at 285 ppm CO2, we had a global annual temperature of 287 kelvins, right? And now with 400+ ppm, the global average temperature is now 287.9 kelvins. As far as the Milankovic Cycles go, I think he got the basic idea right but the details wrong. And I think science is a long way off in understanding what they're missing. Basically scientists can't explain the Medieval Warm Period or the Little Ice Age. @IBDM, Einstein showed that light bends when moving past a dense astral body like a brown dwarf. Even in looking at his actual notes and he scribbled it on a piece of paper, it's in a museum in NYC, he didn't know which was the change in course. Some scientists have said that when light bent, it moved away from the Sun while you'd expect gravity to have light seem to move closer to it. Of course this gets back into if there is dark matter and it's denser closer to the Sun so a photon lacking such density reacts to the aether (what Einstein called it) as light moves past the Sun. Einstein's calculations and theory where proven around 1927, about 20 years after he first wrote his paper.

The Atmosphere is adiabatic, so the only way it can lose its heat is by conduction of the enhancement it causes back to the earth's surface leading to an increase in IR emission bringing the system temperature back into equilibrium at an increased level. In summary insolation causes the solid/liquid planet to warm and the heat is conducted into the atmosphere, which - due to its compressed state - causes temperature increase which goes back to the surface under the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. All gases - greenhouse or otherwise - are transparent to UV so you will need to show proof of your revolutionary claim that oxygen intercepts it to some significant extent. Apart from the compression effect - caused by gravity and therefore being pretty constant- the variation in modern temperature is due to alterations in net insolation. This is pretty simple stuff so the objections are rather strange in the way they arise as there doesn't seem to be evidence of understanding of what is being said shown before objection is put - they don't connect to the thesis.

That is most unusual and not recommended in any process of scientific enquiry. This actually gets into some of the nitpicking that me and IBDM got into. I was wrong in an earlier statement about the Earth's orbit was becoming more circular. It's actually becoming more elliptical. All this means is that the Earth is rotating a little slower on it's axis https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2017/11/20/earths-rotation-is-mysteriously-slowing-down-experts-predict-uptick-in-2018-earthquakes/#5209f5b6f243. This in return can either decrease the amount of solar IR the Earth receiving from the Sun is absorbed or possibly even released conserved energy as heat. It is sad that the Earth as a result of it's own gravity releases heat it generates from it's own internal forces. Still, for long term sustainability, restoring the ozone layer should matter as well as understanding if less O2 in the atmosphere has an effect on the Chapman cycle. I haven't seen where anyone has calculated the amount of heat radiated or removed by O2/O3 in our atmosphere, ie., kept from entering or is removed. O2 is highly radiative. 30-07-2020 17:00 IBdaMann★★★★★(14652) Pete Rogers wrote: The claim that the Greenhouse Effect Hey Pete ... Pete! Can you hear me all the way out in the peanut gallery?

These 'holes' in the ozone layer appear over a pole in the winter of that pole, where there is no sunlight to produce ozone during that pole's winter.As long as you have sunlight and oxygen, you WILL have ozone.

I did forget to apply the Stefan-Boltzmann constant. Thank you for pointing that out. You're learning young one. A "Greenhouse" is warm because incoming solar IR is absorbed by something and then emitted at a different wavelength. This allows for solar radiation to be absorbed by the gasses in the "Greenhouse". And we're back to where I think scientists are actually concerned about other gasses. And that might be like a sermon I watched on television from IBC Lex where the pastor was being both dishonest and deceitful when he was asking some of his parishioners to do something that he wanted them to do. And as you know son, I happen to like both the ozone layer and Star Trek.And both require an interest in science. And luckily I happen to like science. That's what I call a Trifecta. Edited on 31-07-2020 19:04 31-07-2020 19:45 Pete Rogers★★☆☆☆(160) First IBdaMann was correct to say that UV is absorbed by the atmosphere - "All Hail" - and I was wrong to say otherwise so "Fie upon me". Talking about where we live in the atmosphere I should have used the correct term – Troposphere - so please accept my apologies. UV is not absorbed by tropospheric gases and being at above 10kPa in pressure the Troposphere maintains a temperature gradient: whereby the greater the pressure the greater the temperature, being greatest at the bottom for obvious reasons. The troposphere is heated from below by conduction through surface contact and IPCC say also by the Greenhouse Effect: being the alleged temperature enhancement arising from the interception of surface IR emissions by greenhouse gases (GG's). If you find that definition ambiguous please provide particulars to illustrate the claim. Heat within the atmosphere cannot be conducted beyond its edge because there is only vacuum; wherefore it is adiabatic. The Greenhouse Effect (GE) is a misnomer because as James__ avers an actual greenhouse works by trapping warm air so to prevent convection which is a very different matter to deflecting IR - there is no comparison between these processes so the term is deceptive. There is no empirical evidence to show that the GE results in any warming but IPCC say there can be no other explanation for the fact that the Earth would be cooler if it had no atmosphere. If they were right they would have a point, but there is another explanation. According to the Laws of Fluid Dynamics (Part of Thermodynamics) as applied to gas bodies at more than 10kPa, when heat energy enters a compressed medium from a non-compressed medium the temperature rises in accordance with the thermal gradient, this is because at low compression there would be less heat energy per Cubic Metre so gravity enhances the temperature of the troposphere – most notably at its base - which means the temperature is then above that of the surface so as compelled by the Second Law of Thermodynamics heat flows from the warmer atmosphere to the less warm Earth's surface. IBdaMann seemed to think this was an EGREGIOUS violation of Thermodynamics when it is a rigorous adherence to it, but perhaps hen can explain I would be very interested to hear it. In summary the atmosphere warms the earth due to the Laws of Fluid Dynamics whereby gravitational compression causes thermal enhancement which is conducted back to the cooler Earth in accordance with the Second Law of Thermodynamics causing warming which leads to an increase in IR emissions bringing the system back into equilibrium at an increased temperature. Accordingly there is no warming from the GE - nor therefore from our CO2. It's all correct physics and should be easy to follow for anyone familiar with the scientific method – so as I said – pretty simple stuff. 31-07-2020 22:45 IBdaMann★★★★★(14652) Pete Rogers wrote: The troposphere is heated from below by conduction through surface contact and IPCC say also by the Greenhouse Effect: being the alleged temperature enhancement arising from the interception of surface IR emissions by greenhouse gases (GG's). I have two major problems that need to be addressed:1) You specificy the troposphere which is part of the atmosphere which is part of the earth. So the Greenhouse Effect only applies to troposphere? What parts of the troposphere decrease in temperature due to the Greenhouse Effect? What happens to the temperatures of the other parts of the atmosphere in response to whatever happens to the troposphere? What happens to the rest of the planet, i.e. the hydrosphere and the solid sruface, in response to to whatever happens to the atmosphere in response to whatever happens to the troposphere? I have to know all that. 2) You have specified a sequence of energy form-changes but you have specified an increase in temperature without accounting for the additional energy required for the claimed temperature increase. As such, your definition is a straight out violation of the 1st law of thermodynamics until that additional energy is forthwith accounted. You can't create it our of nothing and you can't have anything spontaneously increasing in temperature without additional energy. Pete Rogers wrote: Heat within the atmosphere cannot be conducted beyond its edge because there is only vacuum; wherefore it is adiabatic. I'm going to help you out here. Please take notes. The scientifically illiterate broadcast who they are by their misuse of the word "heat" which is what lay people use generically when they don't really understand what they are talking about. Heat is a flow of thermal energy. Heat is not a thing to which you can point and say "that is heat" unless you are indicating the flow of thermal energy from some matter to different matter. Thermal energy is a form of energy and is the energy in question when discussing temperature. Only matter can have temperature and therefore only matter can have associated thermal energy ... which it loses as it converts to electromagnetic energy and radiates away per Stefan-Boltzmann. Such electromagnetic radiation is called thermal radiation. "Heat" is to thermal energy in matter as "Current" is to water in a river. Heat is not temperature. Heat is not energy. Heat is a flow. The 1st law of thermodynamics tells us that no energy is created out of nothing so as thermal energy flows, some matter will increase in temperature and some matter will lower in temperature. If anyone only talks about the earth increasing in temperature without either explaining what matter is cooling or without accounting for additional energy, then the technical phrase is the Latin: "Ikeall Boolsch't"Regarding misuse of the word "heat" ... from The MANUAL: Heat: nounIn the Global Warming theology, "heat" means whatever it needs to mean at any given moment. The term is employed by Global Warming believers to shift semantic goalposts as necessary. It's meaning can shift fluidly between "temperature," "increase in temperature," "thermal energy," "flow of thermal energy," "convection," "absorption of electromagnetic radiation," "energy," "friction," "conduction," "infrared," "plasma," "work," "radiance," "power," "radioactivity," "electrical energy" and others as convenient.Pete Rogers wrote: There is no empirical evidence to show that the GE results in any warming There is no empirical evidence that peanut butter causes cancer in gremlins.Greenhouse Effect is still not unambiguously defined. There is no science of the undefined. Pete Rogers wrote: ... but IPCC say there can be no other explanation for the fact that the Earth would be cooler if it had no atmosphere. The Vatican say there can be no explanation for the universe other than God's plan.Pete Rogers wrote: According to the Laws of Fluid Dynamics (Part of Thermodynamics) Thermodynamics governs energy. Fluid dynamics governs fluids as a subset of matter, and adheres to, but is not part of, thermodynamics. Pete Rogers wrote: ... this is because at low compression there would be less heat energy per Cubic Metre so gravity enhances the temperature of the troposphere Only upon intial compression ... then it cools to its original temperature. You never fail to omit this key point. It's like you are hoping it will go away. Your argument is dismissed. Get with the program.Pete Rogers wrote: ... is then above that of the surface so as compelled by the Second Law of Thermodynamics heat flows from the warmer atmosphere to the less warm Earth's surface. The daytime solid surface is of a higher temperature than the atmosphere which cools the solid surface, in even a more pronounced manner with greater gravity and greater compression. Ergo, if the atmosphere were to warm the daytime solid surface instead of cool it, it would be an EGREGIOUS violation of the 2nd law of thermodynamics, akin to using ice to boil water. Pete Rogers wrote:IBdaMann seemed to think this was an EGREGIOUS violation of Thermodynamics explained immediately above.Pete Rogers wrote:In summary the atmosphere warms the earth due to the Laws of Fluid Dynamics No and No.Pete Rogers wrote: ... whereby gravitational compression causes thermal enhancement Nope. The gravitational compression happened a L - O - N - G time ago and the atmosphere has long since cooled back down to equilibrium.

Pete Rogers wrote: ... which leads to an increase in IR emissions Out of what nothing were these increased IR emissions created?Pete Rogers wrote: bringing the system back into equilibrium at an increased temperature. Solar output must change for the earth's equilibrium temperature to change. This is the other major point you keep ignoring in the hopes that it just goes away. The earth cannot spontaneously increase in temperature without additional energy, no matter how compressed the atmosphere is (because it happened a long time ago). You are intentionally violating the 1st law of thermodynamics just to make your religious dogma sound plausible. Pete Rogers wrote:pretty simple stuff.Fitting..I don't think i can [define it].

UV is not absorbed by tropospheric gases and being at above 10kPa in pressure the Troposphere maintains a temperature gradient: whereby the greater the pressure the greater the temperature, being greatest at the bottom for obvious reasons. Ozone in the stratosphere absorbs 99% of UV-C, 90% of UV-B and 50% of UV-A UV radiation. At ground level, this decreases to about 1120-1000 watts/m2, and consists of 44% visible light, 3% ultraviolet (with the Sun at the zenith (directly overhead), but less at other angles), and the remainder infrared. Thus, sunlight's composition at ground level, per square meter, with the sun at the zenith, is about 527 watts of infrared radiation, 445 watts of visible light, and 32 watts of ultraviolet radiation. The balance between absorbed and emitted infrared radiation has a critical effect on the Earth's climate. I tend to go with the cumulative effect. The Earth's slightly slowed rotation, less O@ in the troposphere and less O3 in the stratosphere. The change in CO2 levels is less of a contributing factor than the other things listed. An example is an increase of 1.5 w/m^2 probably has more of a warming potential than CO2 does. 0.06% less O2 in the troposphere means that less heat is radiated. And CO2's change has gone from 0.0285% to 0.04% of tropospheric gasses. O2 loss is about 6 times the increase of CO2. Still, in the long run, we are heading for another ice age. The Earth's orbit is becoming more elliptical while it's warming. Hope Ya'all Have a Nice Day p.s., the loss of O2 and stratospheric ozone could account for an increase of 9.5 w/m^2. As a percentage of the atmosphere, they could easily account for any observed warming. An example is that nights are warmer because there is less O2 in the troposphere to radiate heat out into the tropopause towards space.
