Re: CO2 Increase is not Nemesis

First of all, we are not really talking about a true thermal equilibrium at all. True thermal equilibrium is the ultimate result when all energy flows into and out of the system have stopped. The entire planet, including its interior, is at the [more]

Re: CO2 Increase is not Nemesis

Now, If CO2 is driving Temperature, then:

1. We must see a correlation between Temperature and CO2. And we don't see such a correlation in the Vostok ice core data that go back 450,000 years. Or anywhere else for that

Re: CO2 Increase is not Nemesis

If CO2 is a greenhouse gas - and it is - then why does it not warm the planet as claimed by alarmists?

Answer: CO2 absorbs IR radiation around 15 microns and there is not enough energy around 15 microns to warm up anything. <=== Read

Re: CO2 Increase is not Nemesis

There is no correlation between CO2 and Temperature unless you cherry pick the data, and that is what Parrenin et al. did here:

Re: CO2 Increase is not Nemesis

The recent study of Parrenin et al. published in the March 1, 2013 issue of Science (Parrenin et al., 2013, Science, 339, 1060) found that changes in global temperature and atmospheric CO2 had a correlation coefficient of 0.994 (a very strong [more]

Human induced warming is minimal. There will be no catastrophic warming in the next 100 years. In fact, it may start cooling for the next few decades, as the oceanic currents flip-flops and the solar influence

Re: ma260 better than ma200 for timing?

My calculation for buy & hold yield a different result:

Gain 1906.13/16.66= 114.41

Re: hydrogen fuel profitability

Whether it is EVs or fuel cells, something will need to be done about petroleum demand for transportation.

This is the key issue.

Except the Faint Early Sun was 3 - 4 billion years ago. I am talking about the last 600 million years - We averaged about 3,000 ppm CO2 and nothing happened. Meaning: CO2 does not affect temperature.

Re: Goddard's Presentation: Heartland Conference

Without work, warming a warm body with a colder body is impossible.

This is true, but as I said before, CO2 doesn't actually warm the Earth -- it just hinders the rate at which the Earth can radiate to space (and cool). The Earth is [more]

This is where the cold CO2 in the atmosphere is radiating heat and warming the already warmer surface of the planet. They call this back radiation and violates the second law of Thermodynamics. In a nutshell, a cold object alone (CO2) will never, [more]

Re: How Much CO2 In The Atmosphere?

Earth radiates IR between roughly 8.5 and 14.5 micrometers, a range which corresponds to temperatures between (minus) -100 °F and 152 °F. Carbon dioxide does not absorb IR in this range. Water vapor does, but not CO2.
