Evidence for Predicting Global Cooling for the Next Three Decades

by Prof. Don J. Easterbrook, Global Research, November, 2008 INTRODUCTION Despite no global warming in 10 years and recording setting cold in 2007-2008, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climatic Change (IPCC) and computer modelers who believe that CO2 is the cause of global warming still predict the Earth is in store for catastrophic warming in this century. IPCC…

The Limits of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Effects and Control

by Bryce Johnson  Abstract [latexpage] The interactions of the fossil-fuel source of carbon dioxide with the atmosphere as well as in the total biosphere are analyzed. The time dependence of resulting carbon levels and temperatures in all components of the biosphere are determined under a full range of possible insertion and depletion rates to and…

Regarding Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer

by Chuck Wiese, Meteorologist, Weatherwise, Incorporated, Portland, Oregon Why Al Gore’s Comments to Bill O’Reilly at Fox News Are Wrong (PDF here. Earlier version on WUWT here.) From a meteorologist’s perspective, nothing is worse than to see atmospheric science trashed by the likes of Al Gore, who is a self-proclaimed expert in this area, but has had no…

German Professor: Decades of Cooling: “Climate protection is ineffective”

by P Gosselin, NoTricksZone Meteorologist Prof. Dr. Horst Malberg has an article posted at the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) here. He tells us we ought to be preparing for a cooler 21st century first half. Professor Malberg starts his article by showing and discussing various solar activity charts. Today I’m a little short on time,…

This lyrical misadventure is the result of hasty two-night extra-credit project I did many years ago for a physics class in high school. Frankly, looking back, some of these lines are pretty awful.. I’ve kept this up on the Web because people seem to like it, not because lines like “electrodynamics is more than playing…

IPCC’s overestimation of climate sensitivity

by Kyoji Kimoto (e-mail kyoji@mirane.co.jp) 1. Climate sensitivity from the energy budget of the earth Figure1 is a diagram of global energy budget of the earth based on the latest study [Trenberth et al., 2009]. From the figure, natural greenhouse energy is calculated as follows to produce natural greenhouse effect of 34K. Natural greenhouse energy: Eb-Es…

The stable stationary value of the Earth’s global average atmospheric infrared optical thickness

by Ferenc Miskolczi Presented by Miklos Zagoni EGU2011 Vienna Download PDF Conclusions According to the simple-minded or ‘classic’ view of the greenhouse effect the global average greenhouse temperature change may be estimated by the direct application of the Beer-Lambert law moderated by local or regional scale weather phenomena (R. Pierrehumbert, A. Lacis, R. Spencer, R….

Does the Tropopause Limit Carbon Dioxide Heat Trapping?

by Richard J. Petschauer, June 10, 2011, Revised June 29, 2011 [This revision adds non-standard atmospheric lapse rates to the calculations.] Background Basic greenhouse theory shows that as the concentration of CO2 increases, a thinner atmosphere is required to allow the heat to radiate to outer space. This causes the typical emission altitude to increase…

Maunder Minimum 1740—replay in 2020?

By Dennis Avery, Canada Free Press Churchville, VA—A reader recently pointed out a fascinating temperature comparison—between 1700 AD and today. He marked two sections of the world’s oldest temperature record—Central England Yearly Average Temperature 1660–2008:  The first section showed our famous recent temperature surge from 1976–1998. He also marked a similar strong temperature surge from…

Carbon Dioxide: An Innocent Bystander in Climate Change

by Bryce Johnson Abstract An atmospheric radiation transport code, SpectralCalc™ (1) has been used to predict carbon dioxide’s contribution to earth heating.  The code predicts that doubling atmospheric CO2 raises its temperature by only 0.22 degrees C.  This temperature rise is very much lower than “conventional” predictions which indicate at least a 1 C rise…
