Re: The Global Warming Halt Continues

Ajax, this has been explained to you at least 20 or 30 times in the past 3 years, I know Phil "Astrophool" did it up large at least once, with the full chain of evidence.

Yes, I did and did and did ...

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.

I do not believe hydrogen will *ever* be a viable fuel for personal transport -- the energy [more]

Re: Sunspot revisions

The first serious look back at the long-term record since Wolf in 1849 came without even a press release last month. It’s a modestly titled new paper called “Revising the Sunspot Number” by Frédéric Clette, et al., submitted for [more]

Re: Goddard's Presentation: Heartland Conference

Parrenin et al. makes the same mistakes as Shakun but says carbon dioxide and temperature rise together.

Parrenin don't just say CO2 and temperature move together, they *show* this through a careful reanalysis of the ice age (vs. [more]

Re: Goddard's Presentation: Heartland Conference

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.

As I said, the Sun is growing [more]

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]

Re: Goddard's Presentation: Heartland Conference

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: Goddard's Presentation: Heartland Conference

Ajax: your global warming theory claims that a cold gas in the atmosphere, is heating the much warmer surface of the planet - an impossibility.

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.

Re: How Much CO2 In The Atmosphere?

Kind of a poor comparison - one province of Canada versus the whole USA?

Re: There is no consensus

Another important point here is that history if replete with examples of scientists crossing over to other scientific areas and making important observations and contributions.
