At the moment, duncan61 awaits his CO2 meter so he can take actual measurements of atmospheric CO2.

The warmizombie propaganda, published in Wikipedia, which cites cooked data from the Mauna Loa Observatory located on site at an active volcano belching vast amounts of CO2 which are orders of magnitude higher than the atmospheric average, numbers which are then fudged/altered further upwards for the purposes of generating fear and panic, claims that the global average CO2 level exceeds 413 ppm.

From Wikipedia - "Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere"

Following the start of the Industrial Revolution, atmospheric CO2 concentration increased to over 400 parts per million and continues to increase, causing the phenomenon of Global Warming. As of April 2019, the average monthly level of CO2 in Earth's atmosphere exceeded 413 parts per million. The daily average concentration of atmospheric CO2 at Mauna Loa Observatory first exceeded 400 ppm on 10 May 2013


I have not taken any measurements myself, however my expertise on the utter dishonesty of Marxists/leftists/warmizombies gives me a reassuring confidence that the true value is somewhere under 300 ppm.

Fortunately duncan61 will be taking some tangible, concrete measurements with a device rated at a tolerance of +/-40 ppm. This thread will be a great place for him to put his findings.

I haven't used Ebay since the early days when they first started pushing PayPal. When are order some electronics off Amazon, and wasn't too careful about checking the seller, no shipping email in a week, almost always means it's on the slow boat from China, 4-6 weeks...

The actual level of CO2 depends on what statistical analysis that you accept.

The measurement depends only on the meter that he has.

duncan61 hasn't even gotten his meter and his CO2 measurement thread is already growing. Eventually it will contain some measurements. It will be glorious.

Statistical analysis is a tool, which be used to help, or misused to confuse. Computer models can be a useful tool, but they aren't God's All Seeing Eye, and give anyone the power to see past, present, and future.

Getting back om track...

How do we know the volume of the atmosphere? It's really sort of arbitrary concept, since it's size and shape is exactly set, and likely flexible in the upper limit, since there is no physical barrier. I don't think the 0.04% CO2 is accurate, since pretty much all the gasses and vapors, never remain the same levels. It's a very dynamic world we live in. Right now, Florida is experiencing high humidity, near 100%. Not likely it's the same, for the entire planet. CO2 is always going to measure higher, near sources, lower near places that consume a lot (vegetation, like forests or farms). It's really misleading to reduce most of this to a single numeric value, and claiming it settled, and unchanging. The values actually are changing all the time.

Kind of why I mentioned creating a grid over the entire planet. Then everything could be measured at the same locations day after day, month after month and year after year. Then we'd find out if a trend exists.
And if this current warming is anything like the Roman Warm Period then around 2400 in the common era (A.D.) things might start getting cool again.

James__, we already have that. It's called Latitude-Longitude. We can geographically survey. We've got that covered.

Isn't that great! We can do that already.

James___ wrote: Then we'd find out if a trend exists.

Whoaaaaa, hold on a second there. A trend in what? Weather? There are no trends in weather. Weather is random.

In order to determine an increase in the global average temperature you must measure the global average temperature ... and we cannot do that to any usable accuracy, i.e. we would necessarily conclude zero temperature increase because any potential change will be less than our margin of error which therefore eliminates it from being any sort of valid conclusion.

We would have to take the tgoebbles path of "just knowing" that an increase in temperature is "what we know" ... and we could just point to the Soviet Venera program and ask the doubtful why they deny the well-documented existence of the Soviet Union ... and we could explain that we have no reason to distrust "what they knew." We can rebut every question with "that's debunked in my sig."

James___ wrote: And if this current warming is anything like the Roman Warm Period

So when it becomes apparent that the earth is cooling, we won't be able to say that the decrease in the sun's magnetic field somehow did not give us a huge advance warning.

James___ wrote: then around 2400 in the common era (A.D.) things might start getting cool again.

... or since things are cooling right now due to decreasing solar activity that humans will be able to notice in 2060 when comparing to 2000 data.

Cooling. You won't be able to claim that it somehow "came out of nowhere without any warning whatsoever."

Why does it even matter if it's warming, or cooling? We have absolutely no control or influence. We'll dress appropriately, install whatever environmental control we need in our homes. Maybe do a little indoor gardening (not the smokeable kind). We can't alter the course, nor do we understand all that crap near well enough, to be messing it up. We can adapt the way we live, and survive comfortably. Besides, I get the impression that if the vaccines fail, we are all going to die of Covid-19 next year anyway... Regardless of who wins the November election, civil war is assured. About half the country is tired of the democrat crap politics, and going to be pissed if Trump loses, because of it. Democrats are all fueled up to take over the country, one way or another. Good thing the 2nd Amendment is still as popular as ever.

I happen to like Star Trek. And science as well. Kind of why I'm learning math.
I used to have Christians tell me that instead of my doing something that I could pray that someone else could do it instead.
This calculator can tell you how far the Earth is from the Sun on any given day in any given year. The periods are to maintain spacing. Distances are in AUs (astronomical units).
..........................1900..............2020
For June 21.....1.01640........1.01629


For Dec 21......0.98359........0.98371

As the numbers clearly show, the Earth's orbit has become slightly more circular. Is it possible that when the Earth moves further away from the Sun that it cools? It does and by using the inverse square rule in mathematics, the Earth because of it's more circular orbit is exposed to more incoming solar IR from the Sun.
And now maybe it's time for me to get back to my life.

It doesn't matter to you because you are polite.

I mention "Global Cooling" every chance I get because it enflames the religious sensitivities of the warmizombies.

Someone like me can aspire to be more like you, but until that day arrives, the sun's magnetic field is weakening and that signals decreasing solar output which means there is global cooling occurring, perceptible or not ... and that is beautiful, glorious sacrilege.

Correct. You are wise beyond your years. Of course, you are not suffering from any delusion that you are some sort of superhero who could save the planet if only there were a supervillain to be slain through taxation and the destruction of capitalism.

I think we're going to have to wait until Trump's November landslide victory for it to be revealed that the vast bulk of the country is pissed and that all the polls were a complete sham.

Exactly. Having my "boots on the ground" in much of South and Central Wisconsin, I can tell you as a matter of fact that Biden is most certainly NOT "leading" Trump by ~8 points or so in Wisconsin. Outside of Dane and Milwaukee Counties (and Columbia County, which was basically half and half, as they typically are), it is a SEA of Trump signs, and not always just the mass manufactured kind like you see for Biden in Dane and Milwaukee Counties. Plenty of people have even put in the effort to make up their own custom signs, some of them quite large and extensively detailed. I can even still remember this Winter when people carved a large "Trump 2020" text into the ice of Lake Winnebago, and this spring when some fields had "Trump 2020" mowed into them.

Trump won't win WI in a landslide by any means, but I do think that he will once again squeak out a victory in the Badger State and surprise the pollsters and pundits alike.

Statistical analysis is a tool, which be used to help, or misused to confuse.

Statistical mathematics is simply a branch of mathematics. James is not talking about statistical mathematics. Discussing averages like CO2 content and temperature is not using statistical mathematics either. Such discussions deny statistical mathematics.

It is used often as a buzzword, like 'science' and 'expert', in an effort to somehow legitimize religious and political arguments.

HarveyH55 wrote:

Depends on the model. One founded in actual mathematics is very useful. Such models as aerodynamic modelling of airflow over a proposed wing design, stress analysis of mechanical designs, heat flow models of air through a proposed electronic device, are all models that we can use to design more efficient houses, mechanical devices, aircraft, cars, etc.

Models based on past patterns or probability mathematics are somewhat useful, but as always, probability mathematics as well as statistical mathematics is incapable of the power of prediction normally inherent in mathematics due to their use of random numbers. All these models can do is help determine probabilities. It cannot predict.

That actually depends on how you define 'atmosphere.' We do have the ability to measure atmospheric pressure, which is how much a column of air weighs. Under standard conditions, engineers use the value of 14.7apsi.

There is no 'top'. The atmosphere just thins away into space. Again, it comes down to defining what you consider 'the atmosphere'.

Here you are correct. CO2 is not uniformly distributed in the atmosphere.

Again correct. It changes with the seasons, with altitude, with proximity to sources and sinks, and even with air pressure changes.

I think Joe's gaffe problem, is stress induced, sort of like people who stutter. The DNC doctors probably medicate him some, just to maybe get through 20-30 campaign rallies. He screws up even in a friendly crowd, when asked questions, he's a little sensitive about. Pretty much why i'm pretty sure Joe and Hunter did some stuff in the Ukraine, that worries him. People who stutter, have a difficult time lying and deceiving. The stress triggers the stuttering. I don't debate, but I'm pretty sure I could destroy Biden on stage, and not even be that obvious about it.

The DNC will have to get Biden on stage, on TV interviews, speaking live. Videos don't carry that much weight. Joe has mental and physical heath concerns, that people need to know won't effect his ability to perform as president. With mail-in ballots, the democrats might get past the problem of getting their voters enthusiastic enough to vote, but Republicans care, and will turn out in vast numbers, will also do mail-in. Republicans anticipate fraud, and all kinds of underhanded democrap this election, and will leave nothing to chance. The democrats like to play with marketing crap, like polls, and slanted news, declaring themselves the winners. Didn't work for Hilary, just encouraged more Republicans to get out and vote. Can't expect democrat voters not to bother mailing in there votes, because they figure Biden has such a huge lead, it won't matter. I really think the DNC is shooting for winning the House and Senate, over Biden as president.

On that front, I have bad news. The only responses you should expect from warmizombies are 1) "that doesn't prove anything" and 2) "global warming science predicts that measurement."

You need to understand that as your victory condition, i.e. to force them into one of those two king-tipping responses.

If hypothetically the earth were in the throes of an ever-worsening, world-altering ice age and you were to point that out, you would still get the same responses. In fact, you should expect their cognitive dissonance to kick in and to trigger delusions of their fantasy reality in which they imagine themselves as science genius superheroes who save the world by mocking deniers.

The warmist don't care about current conditions, just the averages, over a much longer time, based mostly on the holy ice cores. Everything changes constantly, no two days are the same. It's a big world, weather conditions change just as frequently. Like Texas is getting soaked right now, by Hurricane Hanna, strong winds, likely tornadoes. Haven't check the damage yet today. We aren't feeling any of it over here in central Florida, so it's pulling all the moisture off the gulf, dumping it on Texas. They are are going to get it bad, it's a 'sniffles' hotspot, too. Wondering if they will turn families away from storm shelters, for not wearing their holy face masks? Will those who die, because they were denied shelter, be listed as Covid-19 deaths, since they were outside, during a tornado, because the could dress appropriately to be saved?

As you travel around, and take readings in various locations. You are going to find the is quite a bit of variation. 40 ppm +/- is kind of huge, and for some of the sensors I looked at before, temperature and humidity also have some effect. Likely part of the +/- 40ppm. Your error level should be consistent, and the 40 ppm can be mostly ignored for you purposes. Besides, the IPCC does that all the time, good science...

Anyway, if you go to a large farm, or out in the woods (wild), you should get some of your lowest readings. In the larger cities, in the industrial portion, I'd expect to see some of the highest readings. The numbers will change quite a bit with the seasons as well. And that's just outside readings... You should consider doing a few readings in buildings, you home, car. Not sure if it will be as interesting during the pandemic, since most places aren't as packed with people, as the once were. Oh, if you can visit a few commercial greenhouses, or indoor growing business, could be interesting. Most around here augment CO2, so you should get really high readings there. Those that don't, should be extremely low, even with decent ventilation.
