Newsworthy Items

But not necessarily worth promoting to individual posts.  A good way to acknowledge a whole bunch of tips.  This may or may not become a regular thing.

  1. Politics, money, peer pressure and the lying, fact-free, fake news media’s censorship (BBC) have completely corrupted science. Climate change hysteria mongering has turned science, engineering and economics into full time bullshit factories.

    The Radiative Green House Effect theory contains a fatal flaw.

    For RGHE to perform as advertised requires the earth’s surface to radiate upwelling LWIR as an ideal black body, i.e. 1.0 emissivity at 16 C, 289 K, 396 W/m^2. (TFK_bams09)

    The contiguous presence of atmospheric molecules participating in non-radiative heat transfers through conduction, convection, latent renders impossible such BB LWIR, the effective surface emissivity being 0.16, i.e. actual 63 W/m^2 / ideal 396 W/m^2.

    The LWIR upwelling 396 W/m^2 does not exist – the 333 W/m^2 GHG energy loop “warming” the surface and atmosphere does not exist – and the global warming and climate changes that are attributed to carbon dioxide do not exist.


  2. Though I agree the alarmists overstate (do I understate) their case, I understand tht many times, you need to assume something which while not exactly right is close enough. I think the black body assumption may be ‘close enough.’ The earth certainly does rereadiate some of the incoming energy, and this the assumptions/transgressions let you get a feel for the magnitude of the number.
