Improved Simple Climate Sensitivity Model

by Richard J. Petschauer (February 24, 2011) 1.  Summary of the Present Simple Model and Its Limitations The present simple climate model, used by most climate scientists to estimate climate sensitivity, is based on maintaining energy balance between the net solar incoming shortwave solar radiation and the outgoing longwave radiation from the planet. Increased CO2…

CO2 Insignificant in Earth Warming

by Bryce Johnson (Revised, January 31, 2011) The SpectralCalc™ Code In a recent publication (1) Richard J. Petschauer utilized the SpectralCalc™ computer code (2) to demonstrate that carbon dioxide is but a “bit player” in earth warming by greenhouse gases (ghg’s). The code is extremely detailed and sophisticated, containing all the needed atmospheric and IR…

NASA silenced Ferenc Miskolczi on his GHG research

by Dr Miklos Zagoni, Physicist, Budapest, Hungary, 31 Dec, 2009 In 2004, Dr. Ferenc Miskolczi published a paper “The greenhouse effect and the spectral decomposition of the clear-sky terrestrial radiation“, in the Quarterly Journal of the Hungarian Meteorological Service (Vol. 108, No. 4, October–December 2004, pp. 209–251.). The co-author of the article was his boss at NASA (Martin Mlynczak)….

Climate Science Blind Spot – Evaporation Cooling

by Richard J. Petschauer (January 18, 2011) 1. Background Climate science is certainly not settled considering how poorly the models handle latent heat transfer. This is a process involving heat loss on the surface from evaporation that is moved to a corresponding heat gain when condensation occurs during cloud formation, causing added heat to be…

Carbon Heat Trapping – A Critique

Carbon Heat Trapping a Bit Player in Global Warming by Richard J. Petschauer, Senior Member IEEE, Private Publication Abstract New calculations show that doubling of carbon dioxide (CO2) will increase average global temperature by only about 1F (degrees Fahrenheit) or 0.55C (degrees Centigrade), much less than the range of 2C to 4.5C estimated by the…

On the recovery from the Little Ice Age

by Syun-Ichi Akasofu 1. Introduction: The Little Ice Age (LIA) Significant data show the LIA certainly ended in about 1800-1850 and the recovery has continuously progressed to the present with superposed ‘fluctuations’ Let’s first review changes of temperature from about 1000 to the present. Figure 1(a) shows a typical example of tree-ring data from the…

Singer: Nature – not Human Activity – Rules the Climate

By S. Fred Singer, University of Virginia and SEPP(Presented at Erice Conference, Aug 2010) Summary Santer and sixteen coauthors [2008; hereafter S08] claim that observed temperature trends (in the tropical troposphere) are “consistent” with trends derived from General Circulation Models (GCM).  This result, if correct, would seem to support the validity of greenhouse (GH) models…

The Scientific Method

by Dr. Ed Berry Introduction to the AGW problem Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is the hypothesis that human emissions of CO2 due to burning fossil fuels are causing dangerous global warming. AGW proponents claim AGW is so dangerous that we must drastically reduce our fossil fuel CO2 emissions in order to stop the disastrous effects…

Dominating Role Of Oceans In Climate Change

by Harrison Schmitt See Related Releases of February 22, July 2, 14, 19, and 24, 2010 The scientific rationale behind the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed massive intrusion into American life in the name of fighting climate change has no scientific or constitutional justification. This hard left excursion into socialism, fully supported by the Congressional Leadership…

The Role of Greenland and Antarctic Ice Cores in Climate Science

by Harrison Schmitt See Related Releases of February 22, July 2, 14, and 19, 2010. Analysis of ice cores from Antarctica and Greenland play an important role in understanding the history of global temperatures and atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane, and other gases and aerosols. Through analysis of dust, they also provide up to…

Global Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

by Harrison Schmitt See Related Releases of February 22, July 2, and 14 2010. Given how little we actually know about climate, and particular the bogeyman called “carbon dioxide,” the President, the Environmental Protection Agency, Congress, and some ideological State governments and politically fearful corporations verge on choosing an extraordinarily dangerous path in attempting to…

Global Temperature In Climate Change

by Harrison Schmitt Ten thousand years of natural, post-Ice Age climate variability should give pause to those who maintain that current slow global warming and carbon dioxide increases result largely from human use of fossil fuels. Public confidence in that position also suffers from the exposure of fraudulent academic and bureaucratic behavior aimed at overriding…
